This Rube Goldberg machine was made for Japanese educational TV show PythagoraSwitch.
The little red ball rescues his friends who are trapped and then they all escape together from the baddies.
I made an attempt at making a terrarium once but it all fell apart after a mysterious mould ruined all the plants.
Clearly more successful than I is Kim Fisher. She has an Etsy shop that sells these exquisite creations that make beautiful wall art.
The half-enclosed 22-inch hanging wall planters specifically designed for succulents and air plants.
This is the delightful “Kitengela” mini purse. My bags might seem to have strange names, but they’re all named after places in Kenya – I was born there 😺
The Kitengela is the perfect size for keys, a couple of cards, tampons and lipstick or lipbalm.
This melts my heart and it’s such a good cause.
IKEA has been running the Soft Toys For Education campaign for 12 years, but for the first time they will be creating toys based on children’s drawings. One dollar or one euro from each purchase will go to UNICEF and Save The Children.

This is by far my favourite version of the “Lodwar” clutch. It’s bright, eye-catching and different. Exclusively in my Etsy shop. Link on the right/at the bottom.

The “Lodwar” clutch comes in lots of colours and prints.
The outside of this version is a stripy Ankara wax print and the lining is kikoi fabric from Kenya.
Exclusively in my Etsy shop, link in bio.
Cristian Marianciuc came up with a modern twist on a traditional practice:
“I decided to start a different kind of diary at the beginning of this year. Every day, I fold an origami crane and using it as a blank canvas, I describe my day through colours, shadows and everything that surrounds me.
It has helped my creativity a great deal, and it has also become somewhat of a daily ritual.”
As something who dabbles in origami I absolutely love these – very inspirational.

This folded clutch isn’t currently for sale, as it’s a prototype. But it’s got potential!
You can fit plenty inside the “Lodwar” clutch: phone, keys, wallet, makeup and even glasses. All the essentials! In my Etsy shop now.
I love a wedding, any of my friends will tell you that.
One of my favourite ideas (seen at my friends Sam and Anna’s wedding) was a typewriter and paper instead of the wedding book…..at least it was my favourite until now!
Guests at the wedding of Amanda and Steve were invited to sign pieces of fabric that would
be stitched into a wedding quilt. I can’t explain how much I love this idea – major “yoink” potential!
