One of the first things that struck me with Swirlyarts was Lynsey's chicken pin cushions. Each one is very, very cute, with its own little personality. I can just imagine them all running riot in her studio when they think she's not looking!
Over at Swirlyarts you will find a range of products, often created using recycled materials. Lynsey loves to rescue damaged books from charity shops and put them to good use again, making items such as gift tags or envelopes out of them. Its this part of it that makes it all so lovely for me - anything made used recycled goods is all the better as far as I'm concerned! Also a lot of these items have a certain childish charm about them, whether that be the chickens cheeky grin, or the characters used on the gift tags - ideal for use with children's gifts (or perhaps just for those of us who never grew up!).
As always with those I have found through Twitter and admire their work, I love reading Lynsey's blog. She has a healthy balance of showcasing her new makes, introducing us to areas of her studio or sometimes just the pure excitement of her new shoes!
