That book looks super cool.


That book looks really inspirational. Love your interpretation of the portfolios,they are very pretty. xx


I'm always up for reinventing. I've been begging our local library to let me have/buy their old card catalogue. They're using it as a phone stand right now.

I Love the look of this book, and the whole idea of it.
Your portfolios have such an old-world look and feel to them, really special.
I'm and artist and handwork teacher in a Steiner school in Ireland and am always on the lookout for inspiring new projects which use materials we may already have. Thanks for sharing.


The univers of Maya seems so rich (I love the playhouse mushroom).
Thanks for the giveaway (and your beautiful photos)

I couldn't have thought of a better project for using 1) your dyed fabrics 2) Geninne/you's print 3) the laces. Utterly heavenly !
Thanks for the chance to win, Maya has done an amazing job on her book !


I will be following this blog tour because I love the idea of reinvention and repurposing. We have a wealth of materials close at hand and I would love to have this book to try new concepts and open my eyes to see what is around me in new ways. Your blog does that for me consistently and I appreciate the time you give all of us. What a gift!
