Clever Cookie

by Kate on August 27, 2012

Shaz never ceases to amaze me. Apart from having a fantastic range of home wares, she has now turned her attention to paper, designing some really fun prints. How genius! These make the perfect addition to any kids craft box or if scrap booking is your bag – bingo. The greatest thing about these paper […]

A visitor..

by Kate on October 25, 2011
