Friday is my day: ThePaperMachines

Hello all! Today we are traveling to Manchester, England to meet Raphaela from ThePaperMachines! Enjoy the ride :)

Totem Necklace No3

Hi! My name is Raphaela and I'm a French designer living in Manchester, UK.
I make bags and accessories, all from salvaged leather and locally sourced supplies.
In my free time, I like to play the violin, read books and watch more anthropology documentaries than anyone I know! 

Tea!! Then I check emails, and answer them as I'm having a nice breakfast. Then I take advantage of the sun and take some pictures of my new items! Then it's time for me to get into my daily sewing routine. Today I needed to replenish my stock of drawstring bags in which my jewelry is sent. Lots of fun to see them all done!

Post office time...Not the funniest part of the day but today is quite sunny so I decided to stop at the park on my way back. It's so nice! 

 [12 am]
Lunch time..I like to take my time to cook myself something nice, today it's roots vegetable bake, with rocket on the side. Yummy!

 [1 pm]
Back to my studio until the early evening. Put some good tunes on and get cutting, threading, drawing and sewing some more. I love vintage decor and my room is filled up to brim with artworks in pretty frames, records and old books. It's a bit like a cocoon where there is always something nice to look at and be inspired from.  

[6:30 pm]
Time to tidy all the mess I created! Then my lovely half and I will share a homemade dinner or sometimes a pizza, then I might list some items and go through my tags and descriptions, blog about my day and watch a film!

Hope you enjoyed following my day!

Thank you Raphaela! As for all of you lovely readers stay tunned for our next week's guest!
Until then, have a great weekend and be creative :)
