I Love Stationery cover

I was pretty thrilled last year when one of my fave design authors Charlotte Rivers (not just saying that – I did already own some of her books and follow her blog) asked me to submit some of my work for her upcoming book. But then I put it out of my mind because books take so long to reach the shelves and besides, not everything that’s submitted will make the final cut.

I Love Stationery - Akimbo

So imagine my excitement when I flipped open my freshly-delivered copy of her book I Love Stationery and found a whole page feature on Akimbo‘s Woodland collection!

Huge thanks to Charlotte and her publisher Jacqui Small. It means so much to me to be published in such a beautifully produced book.

  • Congratulations Alicia! You deserved to be in that book. Well, I’ve been in your blog for the second time but I must say, I came back because I love your work! And I admire you on making the DIY for your wedding. I am getting married soon and been looking for great projects especially the corsage for the principal sponsors. Any idea about it?

    You have a great blog!
