Newest creation - garlands of buddhas and lotus flowers

So here it is - in my yoga theme (again) - a new product - I thought this would make a nice little addition to any room where you may do yoga, read or perhaps to hang near your desk.  They can be customised to any length or perhaps to have a cut-out of a certain word within the shapes.  Please check out my etsy or folksy shops for details.

Personalised order First Wedding Anniversary

When I got a request from someone requesting a personalised order for a papercut picture, she mentioned it was a gift to her husband for their first wedding anniversary, I thought this was a great idea since its the 'paper anniversary'.  She asked me to adapt one of my designs with her own words and to add in a few extras.  Notice their initials cut within the two little hearts!  

I am working on a totally new product which encorporates papercutting.  Can't wait to show you,  its nearly ready!

Two new designs of papercuts

Finished two designs this week!

Firstly, in keeping with my love of all things relating to yoga and meditation, I created a design encorporating the words 'Om Mani Padme Hum'.  In Tibetan Buddhism the most common prayer, found everywhere, is Om Mani Padme Hum, the mantra of Chenrezi, the Buddha of compassion.

My other design is a quote from the eternally famous and fabulous song by Louis Armstrong 'And I think to myself what a wonderful world'.  As with all designs, they are available from either Folksy or Etsy.

Personalised order

Working on some new designs which I will share with you soon.  In the meantime this is an order I finished recently.  It was requested by someone to give as a gift to his girlfriend.  Its a line from 'their song' by Gomez.

Poole Harbour

Lovely sky over Poole Harbour.  We had a lovely weekend with long walks around the amazing Jurassic coastline in Dorset.

Where do I begin?

My first blog post!  What do I say?  Perhaps I should recite some ancient Sanskrit quotes to bring good luck to my new venture.  Not to mention a prayer to Lord Ganesha too.  Done.  I will be revealing some of my newest designs of my papercuts. To start, I think it would be apt to show you this lovely inspirational quote from Mahatma Gandhi.  Hope you like it.
