Diana Renjina


Love these nature and folklore inspired hand painted wooden brooches and ornaments created by Riga-based illustrator, Diana Renjina. The wooden pieces are made from birch plywood delicately painted with acrylic paint and varnish.  Her main artistic focus is illustration but also wants to explore graphic and web design freelancing on a variety of projects.  

More of her work can be viewed on Instagram, Behance and Facebook.  Her brooches and illustration prints can be purchased in her Etsy shop, Knee Deep in a Cold Sea.

Romper Room


Found these felt animal coasters on Japanese handmade market site, Iichi. The items are made with three layers of felt enhanced with simple animal detail embroidery.  More of their designs can be seen in their Iichi shop, Romper Room.  You can also them on their website.

M’s Craft

We’re always on the lookout for creative ways to wrap a gift.  We found these garlands that we think will greatly embellish a package.   It is sold in the Japanese handmade market site Minne.

The shop name is M’s Craft and as typical of Japanese sites the creator’s name is not listed.  The items are made from cultivated in-house flowers carefully chosen for their colors and picked as per season and occasion.
