Tickle the Imagination

When I think of creativity and resourcefulness one friend in particular springs to mind. She is a designer, a creator, a photographer, a blogger, the person behind the beautiful accessories and homewares label Blossom & Cat, and the craft editor for ‘tickle the imagination’ magazine. Her name is Helen and I’m excited to share her latest contribution to the magazine with you.
