I love the rain

Well yes, otherwise I wouldn’t never have moved to London from sunny Rome. Or sunny Gold Coast (Australia).
Or the other sunny places where I’ve lived.

But no, I’ve decided to settle in London, very much aware of the weather and enjoying it like no many other people around.

This August has been particularly wet. Autumn seems to have started earlier than usual...well early than last year for example...I’ve lived here so long that I’m rambling about the weather!

Anyway, to celebrate my fondness for the rain I’ve been working on a series of designs inspired by rain and water in general.

The designs are actually based on a series of little paintings I’ve done a few months ago and I’m now developing those elements into digital form.

I will be using the new designs to decorate notebooks and cards for the autumn collection, that will be available in the shop from next week.

Have a great weekend!

Stationery Tuesday - Letterpress cards

Stationery tuesday is back!

For this week feature I’ve chosen letterpress cards.

is an old and fascinating technique, and it’s great that is still used today by so many talented craft people to create lovely, elegant and quirky stationery.

It wasn’t easy to choose between the many beautiful cards I have found, but I’ve selected the ones that seem to take a modern approach to an old technique.

I love the simple elegance that letterpress allows, no matter the subject.

I hope you enjoy the selection.

Back in Piktoland

The holiday break lasted a bit longer than I planned, but I’m finally back in business.

I have taken this post-holiday period to research new material and find new suppliers and be properly ready for the new season.
It’s going to be busy, it’s going to be fun!

At the moment I’m working on a new line of notebooks and organizers, and I’m thinking to add a few calendars as well.
I’m also having fun with new cute designs to add to our existing family.

I’ve tried some of the designs on gift tags and I’m rather please with the result.

They will be available in our shop very soon!
