Handmade paper is one of my favourite materials to work with - you can’t go wrong with a cotton texture, deckled edges and a rustic look.
If there was one pen I would have to pick from all the brush lettering supplies - the winner would definitely be the Tombow Dual Brush Pen! Not only it’s considered to be the best beginners brush pen, it is also useful for an intermediate level hand letterers to help create amazing projects!

February is a beautiful time to visit French Riviera. Blooming of mimosas, peak of the citrus season and warm temperatures (comparing to the rest of Europe) are good enough reasons to escape the reality.
But our actual reason endeavouring on this trip was to experience the fun of a Citrus Festival. That’s right - a celebration of the citrus harvest.
It is usually organised from mid February - mid March in a little town called Menton, just 40 minute train journey from Nice.
I count myself lucky living in Brighton as it’s only about an hour train journey from London! As most of my friends have moved to London for job opportunities and education, I try to dedicate at least one visit every month to catch up with the dearest girlfriends!

I just love cotton paper. That texture, deckle edges, and if you add watercolour to it - it's the whole lot of perfection. Many of you have been asking me what paper do I use for these projects, so I thought I'll share with you a bit more of the process.
As you may already know (my dear IG friends). I take 'caring for myself' quite seriously. Small business does not just run itself. But we need to learn not to run ourselves mad.
It's Monday morning, you hear the order labels printing in the background, the kettle boiling, that crisp smell of ground coffee and you realise that it will be one hell of a long day.
Questions like 'how am I gonna get everything done? I need to organise that pile of cards and prints, I need to prepare for new product launch, there's that custom order I need to finish off today, oh and I totally forgot about that family meeting! How is it 6pm already?!'
Overworking myself became normal and I felt that guilt creeping up every time I allowed myself to rest.
