making light

My new favourite things – a string of paper lanterns on a thread of christmas tree lights. Beautiful.

My site and email have been down for a few days. If you have sent me anything important since the weekend you may want to try sending it again. Thanks!

  1. Wow… they are lovely! I’ve always wanted to do the paper lantern with candles thing but am too scared cos of fire safety and all that.

  2. I thought I was going nuts when I tried to get to your site and it said ‘no such address’. Welcome back.

  3. WHERE did you buy those? (I live in OZ. )

  4. Welcome back – we missed you! Ever since the horror birth, we’ve had fairy lights strung up around our house. As the hubby says, “Every day is a special day!”

  5. ok, I have enjoyed your journal for a couple months-I stumble across your illustrations and loved them AND I have been wanting to learn to knit but thought…Illustrator is time consuming enough now you are going to knit??? But I was on an airplane with a girlfriend and she taught me to knit-I am on my way to making my very first crooked scarf! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Gahhhh!! I gotta have them for my studio!!!!!..I had plain Christmas lights up last summer, but these are soooo pretty!!

    More info on them, for sure!! (I’m, in Melbourne too)

  8. Ooh, pretty. I have paper lanterns hanging in my living room. They give good ambience.

  9. Hi! Came here via Frangipani’s blog – don’t know what your old site looked like, but I truly love the new Spring look! You’re a very talented illustrator! Nice one. Will definitely be back…
