Awhile ago now, I was visiting my favourite blogs and I saw this gorgeous drawing.

I always like blog headers that are drawn, so I contacted the blogger because I wanted her to do mine (I can't decide what to do, so I haven't commissioned anything yet) and she told me that the header was designed by Lauren Holgate. Lauren has an etsy shop, and I went through her postcards and illustrations, and seriously fell in love.
I have collected post cards all my life, and this set is definitely in my favourites. I love the simplicity, and the muted colours, and just the way she draws the human form.
My other favourite artist right now, is Beci Orpin. I flip through her book Seek & Find over and over. It's not the craft ideas particularly that I love, just her whole way of seeing and presenting the world.
Part of her house with her handmade pillows.
Her pin board of her works.
I just can't stop being inspired by her.
We live in this world, where people create such beautiful things all the time... and sometimes, we forget to appreciate THAT in all the chaos.
