CARDS - mochizuki

i had previously featured lovely japanese postcards from mocchi mocchi on P+P here way back in 2006. so i was really suprised the other day to see a range of their cards in a local store. mochizuki's gorgeous artwork was picked up by woodmansterne and published in the uk. the colour palette is earthy and natural and all the cards are printed with vegetable based inks onto 100% recycled cards and packed in corn starch bags. some postcards from the mocchi mocchi website...

DECALS - wall sticker shop

the wall sticker shop is a new online source of wall decals. they have all sorts of styles and brands in their store, and here are some choice designs. wall stickers make a big impact on a low budget, and the best part is that they simply peel off again if you fancy a change or move home.


new things have been happening over at sukie since i last looked. like these fab soft back recycled notebooks in four new designs. theres a new agenda book and somewhen soon fabrics to look forward to.

CARDS - ally gore

gorgeous new lazer cut cards from ally gore and rob reader. the range is called opera d'arte and can be bought direct from ally's site or wholesale trade through the art file.
