Show Us Your Arts

One of bY Mi's newest stockists, Shop of Interest, is helping put together a unique project to raise money for Scotland's leading mental health charity, SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health).

Show Us Your Arts is a crowdfunded auction of prints, jewellery, paintings and crafts donated by the artists & designers with an exhibition at the end of July. From as little as £10 you can get an Art bundle or if you donate £30 or more you get a portrait sketch of the person of your choice. One lucky donor will even get one of my limited edition Golden Arrow pins.

Go on take a look at the the great selection of pieces that have been donated, it would make a great investment or gift and will give you that warm fuzzy feeling inside too.

I plan to head along to the exhibition at the end of the month and will report back how it all went.

PS if anyone is struggling to think of a birthday present for me next month, a Show Us Your Arts art bundle would be very gratefully received

the 20/12 collection

2012 was a special year, each month bY Mi launched a brand new product in a limited edition of 20.

I decided upon this project mainly out of impatience to get making some of the many ideas that are rolling around in my head but also to showcase the diverse uses for bY Mi's unique textile origami. The project will enable origami fans and customers (that's you guys) to get a real insight into my creative processes and hopefully inspire more projects. Each month I did my best to keep you all informed on Facebook, Twttier & by Newsletter, the inspiration, development and creation of the final piece.

The full collection is available to buy on Etsy & Folksy or at a bY Mi Craft market stall. One product was launched each month and you can view them all below. Each piece comes with details of the bY Mi 20/12 Collection and the all important edition number. The Collection starts with piece 01/01 and ends with 20/12. Remember there were only 20 made of each of the 12 pieces.
