I’ve just finished this yoyo set that I’ve been working on for a while. It’s a bit different from the old regular ones. This new style contains 64 yoyos, as opposed to only 16 and it uses no matte. It’s in the shop here.
-Here is an inspiring tutorial on papercut work. Back in the day when I first worked in graphic design my specialty was in paste-up and wow many people with my way around a pen knife.

Anyway, I think I need to try my hand at some paperwork soon.

-Hey creative ladies! This just in, keep plants in your studios and be more creative and productive! I read this on AOL yesterday: In a study from Texas A&M University, women who worked for an hour in a room decorated with two potted plants and a bouquet of flowers generated 13% more ideas than women in a room with abstract sculptures. Studies show that plants are a mood booster, and good moods are associated with higher levels of dopamine, the hormone that controls the flow of information throughout the brain. Your next bright idea: Head to a nursery or garden store and pick up a few houseplants of your own.
