and the letter of the day is......

here's J... again another fab selection..
it's not often I showcase male creatives - I'm not sure why exactly, it just seems most of the work that appeals to me happens to be by females - however.. you NEED to look at the work of John Dilnot (see below) - I LOVE it!!

But lets start with...

Julia Rothman

Julia Rothman really needs no introduction... she is well known as an exceptional illustrator and pattern designer - creating product that ranges from quilts to cards, prints to wallpaper - take a peek:

John Dilnot

So, here I was doing some browsing around Julia Rothman's Book Blog and came across the work of John Dilnot...So, I jumped over to his website and have spent a considerable amount of time gasping at his work....LOOK! (and yep, that is in capital letters because I am saying it loudly!!) I am completely in LOVE with these 'Boxes'...John also has a range of handmade books, prints, kits and cards...

Anna Joyce

I first came across Anna Joyce's work via Design*Sponge.

A Portland (Oregon) based artist, Anna makes these gorgeous hand stitched canvases and cushion covers...

I love hand stitching in all it's forms, so these really appeal to me - have a look:

It's the weekend!

And there we have it.. another week over. What do you have planned this weekend? We are catching up with friends this weekend - and it is Fathers Day on Sunday so we definitely have some celebrating to do.. I'm looking forward to some good food, good company - and keeping warm!! - even though we are 5 days into spring it still feels like winter!!

Have a great weekend everyone! See you next week for K!
