Brown Paper Packages Tied up with String....

I just discovered this gorgeous website! I adore brown paper packaging tied up with string (these are a few of my favorite things!), old-fashioned luggage tags and old sketchbooks so the design of this site really appeals to me! In fact, the previous sentence perfectly describes my packaging for AuroraRose, each of my sold items will be delivered in old-fashioned packaging with a special AuroraRose luggage tag. Photos coming soon on this blog!

Lovely Beluga Whale Story....

I read this amazing story this morning about a drowning diver in China who was saved when a beluga whale recognised she was in distress and led her to the surface by taking her leg in its mouth... I love this story!

My life... my inspiration... my blog...

I'm hoping to capture a little of what makes me tick inspiration-wise... it might even help my creative process a little! I'm going to treat this blog like one of my sketchbooks or the inspiration wall I keep in my bedroom at home! All the things that please me or give me ideas no matter how small will be included from films to books, exhibitions to pictures I have snapped while going through life.

I will also be posting news of special offers, discounts, competitions and that kind of thing for my Etsy shop customers to keep your eyes peeled for those... coming up soon! In fact, what the hell, anyone who buys in anything from my shop until the 31st August, mentioning this special blog offer will get free shipping!

Thanks to everyone who has added me as a favorite seller on Etsy!
