I wouldn't mind a paper cut from here!

These paper cuts are absolutely amazing. I cannot get my head round how someone can have so much patience. I've had a go and it isn't easy I can tell you that. Instant gratification is what I need! I particularly like this one of the two lovers on the bike. Have a look at this article for more photos. Rob Ryan eat your heart out!

Sheffield University Global Enterprise Week

PIPO has been invited to hold a talk at the University of Sheffield's Global Enterprise Week about craft business start up. How exciting! Find out how PIPO got the idea and got started.... and watch her tremble with nervousness on the stage! It will be great to see other crafters and their work and ideas. For more information, visit their website.
