I was really excited and flattered when Brittni from papernstitch blog asked me to participate in her exciting new venture, a monthly curated showcase of artists, designers and makers from around the world. papernstitch.com launches today with a fantastic choice of over seventy shops. What a wonderful way to discover new work from around the world. Her focus is mostly on fine art with some craft and sculpture. The site, is beautifully and simply designed and easy to browse. I'm sure you will recognise some of the wonderful artists represented, like Matte Stephens, Wolfie and the Sneak (don't you love the new Peer colouring book!), Nea (moustache cross stitch above) and Anna Ruby King amongst others.
There are also lots of new names to me, great discoveries like Royal Buffet with these exquisite mobiles and Gemma Correll with her many legged kitty cup above.
Oh and coincidentally mudpuppy are here too, with the little red terrarium mushrooms I bought the other day! Too cute.
