For All Ages

It was love at first sight when I opened crankbunny's Etsy shop. Her paper creations beamed with such intense personality. They're like characters in a whimsical movie, Labyrinth perhaps?

There was a book long ago that I used to take from the library time and time again. My room was its second home. I don't remember the name of it but it was a mystery picture book. You find clues on each page which lead you closer to solving the final puzzle. I wasn't old enough to understand it at the time but I still loved the idea. This shop brings it all back.

...I wish I knew the name of that damn book! Anyways, bore story aside, her timeless style is one that can easily be adored by many. So much to see in her shop <3

Love that Etsy shop! Those designs are the perfect kind of slightly creepy whimsy that I enjoy.

The book you found in the library sounds amazing actually, I love those sort of books.. my favourite when I was very young, (which is nothing compared to the one you describe) was Where's Wally, haha!

I love the shop you have found, I have added it to my favourites, it's a shame she has closed for the holidays, I love her pop up cards. I use to think pop up cards where too childish, but not hers! Love them!

I just love this blog.

It's got a unique feeling and a really good dark-ish mood to it. Keep up the great work, beatblack.

All the best from Helsingborg, Sweden.
