My name is Diane and I'm a freelance editor based in Melbourne, Australia. Notes to a Further Excuse is a design and lifestyle blog that brings together my love of design, illustration, homewares, stationery, photography, travel and all manner of other other lovely things.
I love this cute collaboration with Australian label Made by White and Netherlands illustrator Lisa Manuels. Lisa specialises in drawing cute animals and people, and Lyndsay and Kelly from Made by White worked with her to produce a lovely range of brooches. The range includes knitting bunnies, beekeeping bears and tiny illustrations in coloured wooden frames - too cute!
I have a slight obsession with brooches, and I think that some of these designs will just have to go on my wish list! To see more from Lisa check out her blog and online shop, and visit the Made by White website to see the full collection (and plenty of other cute goodies!). Lyndsay and Kelly also have a great Made by White blog here.
