As the festive season fast approaches I’ve found myself in a whirlwind of art and craft in my aim to make people’s Christmas just that bit more personal by adding a handmade element to everyone’s gifts. When I’ve allowed myself to be pulled away for a much-needed break from my work space, I’ve been spending my time attending and browsing craft fairs, and have been blown away by the amount of talented individuals out there.
Last Saturday I had a stall at a Christmas fair where I tested out for the first time how my paper cut pieces would go down. I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely comments and interest and will be adding some framed paper cuts to my Folksy shop in the near future, so be sure to keep checking!

It was whilst browsing at BelleVue Park’s craft fair a few days later that I came across a fellow artist/crafter whose cuts I fell in love with. From small box-framed designs, to larger intricate ones, the detail and whimsical work of Gemma, owner of Papur Pinc, is well worth checking out!
