My meet the maker blog for Folksy all about me and my newspaper yarn:
If you would like to discuss a commission to make something unique & personal (card or gift) please message - I love making your ideas a reality!
A very happy new year to you!
A custom made, luxury 3D, tactile flower on a unique and personal paper wedding anniversary card. Each flower is lovingly made to order, and if you drop me a line to specify any colours/messages/design features of the flower I will create something just for you.
If I don't hear from you, you will receive a specially made single stem I have created for you using colours I choose and without any message written on the card.
"Goodnewsfrombad" is all about recovery, hope and transforming old stories (particularly difficult bad news stories) into new ones.
The newspaper yarn I make is carefully handspun from hand cut, thin strips of newspaper. I have tried spindles/shredders, but I find that using my fingers helps keep the yarn fine as possible as well as allowing me more control over the colours and textures produced.
I also think there is something important about knowing the newspaper has physically passed through the hands of the maker, which transforms the bad news stories and makes them a part of your stories as you send them to your friends and family.
I also love making art from your stories, so do get in touch if you would like a commissioned piece to hang on your wall, perhaps even made from newspaper from a special day.
Any colour in the yarn has come from the ink in the newspaper - I don't add colours!
