Please welcome our newest designer
 to the neighborhood, Aurora.

My name is Aurora and I am from Spain.
As a kid, from my mum and my grandma, I learned crocheting, knitting, sewing and embroidering. I have always been a crafty type of person and I love playing with fabric, ribbons, buttons and thread.  Some years ago, I discovered scrapbooking, but with two small kids it was very difficult to follow on long projects.  On the summer of 2013, I decided to learn how to use the Copic markers that my husband had bought me some years ago.
Since then I haven’t been able to stop using them, and with them came a whole world of images for colouring and projects that were just my size, with endless possibilities to use all the techniques and materials that I could think off.
