A fine art student by day, illustrator and cartoonist by night, she uses both digital and traditional means to create strange but cute characters. Tiny Pretty Things also contains Mini Art, the eco friendly tiny drawings on recycled and reclaimed packing card, so that you can boost your eco ego as well as indulging in something beautiful.
One thing you won't find in her shop though is The Inspiration Ninja, pictured below. That's because I bought it on Friday... sorry folks, it had to be done. It's mine! Mine I tell you! Mwahh haa haa haah haaaa... (ok I'll stop now!)

Her paper goods are made from upcycled paper; as she says, 'It's better than ordinary recycled paper because it's not processed between lives; I take it straight from its waste incarnation and transform it into something useful. It's interesting and beautiful because you can see what it used to be.'
Her stitched items are sewn on a hand-powered antique sewing machine.
Her house is powered by renewable energy.
And all of her packaging is reused or recycled!

One of my favourite items is this set of 10 mini fabric gift wraps, all of which have been handprinted and come with 10 myfuroshiki card gift tags. Also included is a handy instruction sheet with illustrations for wrapping techniques!
You can also make a custom request for special occasion furoshiki favours to suit your theme - what a brilliant idea for an eco-friendly wedding!

My favourite is this kids' handbag in a cute green penguins fabric, I think it's supposed to be for girls but my youngest boy loves it!
