about me

 

Hello! I’m Cornel and I blog about things that inspire me, things I’ve made and Craft Share, the craft group I started in 2009.

You'll find lots of crochet on my blog, as well as my crochet and sewing projects for Ideas Magazine, since September 2011.

What do wedding invitations and tattoos have in common?

 

Everything! If you know who Mara Zepeda from Neither Snow is.

She studied Copperplate and Italic calligraphy in New York and Philadelphia

and now works from a studio in Florence, Italy.

Her beautiful letters and words can be found on wedding invitations,

place and escort cards, corporate logos, family trees, greeting cards

and client’s arms, sides, shoulders, necks…


I particularly loved this tattoo she designed for Karen,

who lives in Toronto:

Karen says: “I really love it. I finally found my vocation,

and knitting ‘a few stitches a day’ is part of my life,

part of me...

I love being able to express my creativity in my knitting designs.” 

 

I would love to know what you would choose

to put on the inside of that crafty arm of yours…

Cornel x

Not that I like or would even ever tatoo myself, but if I would it would say something like: "Never without a kitty-cat" or "I'd rather be crafting".

Hi Carey! I love that! Especially the crafting bit. Mine could read: 'sew, this is it...' Thanks for your comment. C x
