As long as I remember I have loved paper.

In my teenager years I handcrafted a lot of things; it was great fun, but I also believed that I had to learn something 'proper' to earn my living.

'Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.' William Morris
I believe that we should only have things surrounding us that fulfill the above.
Finding less and less paper products I want to buy, I have decided to produce my own designs.
If you look for something different and personal, I hope you will find something at Dandeliontree.

If you see something you like but it is the wrong colour, please contact me and I will see if I can get it in the colour that suits you best. The same counts for sizes and designs: It is all handmade and therefore adaptable!
