And I am delighted to have received this week, a book I’ve been featured in (and dying to see for ages!) 500 paper objects . . .

Craftfinder is a lovely new website featuring selected makers and venues across the country in one place so you can search for makers and places near you, or around places you’re planning to visit. You can also sign up and collect your favourite things from the site to keep like a pinboard. It’s a lovely looking site and has some great makers and I’m so pleased to be part of it. I was just added today so take a look at the site, and of course my profile page, I hope you like it!
