happy thoughts

I’ve been a little under the weather for the last few days, which of course is no fun. So I’m cheering myself up with happy thoughts and drinking tea and re-watching favorite movies.

Etsy shop Paper Owl has all kinds of beautiful prints and adorable dishes to brighten up your home! Katie was sweet enough to answer a few questions about her lovely work and she has even offered a giveaway to one lucky reader!

Q. Could you tell us a little about yourself?
My name is Kate Blake and I am an illustrator living in the UK. Aswell as drawing I also paint and make things for my Etsy shop Paper Owl.

Q. When did get started making such cute things?
