  22. Hi Arounna,

    Beautifully done! I can't tell you what an inspiration you are/have been to me. As an aspiring textile artist/entrepreneur I come back to your blog every day and am just in awe of how much you accomplish, your creativity and the gorgeous simplicity inherent in everything that you do. Thanks also to your blog I have been introduced to natural dyeing and I am excited to get my garden going this Spring and start experimenting with colours. Thank you so much for what you do and for being so inspiring!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's exciting! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations on this achievement Arounn! It does feel fantastic when you realize and put out an idea which started as a little 'wow, we could do this' in your head. So glad you added a DIY project with the water color printing. I look forward to these, especially something on natural dyeing. Would also love to share work of some designers/artists you might like.
    Congratulations again!!

  86. Congratulations on b.a.h.1!
    I think the magazine is great - its' simplicity and elegance matches perfectly with your journal, and you continue with your beautiful,simple photographs which ties the website and magazine together so nicely.

    I love that you've included a 'how to' section too. One of my favourite things about your journal is that you are so generous with your imagery - sharing photos of works-in-progress is not something every artist does, but as an artist myself, I find it so helpful to see others' techniques.

    All in all, I think your hard work is so evident and I look forward to the next edition. Bravo!
