|Cut paper luminaries|
Ama studied interior design in Belgium, but now lives in Mexico with her young family. She enjoys creating simple, yet stylish ways to decorate their home and lucky for us, shares her projects via tutorials.

Admittedly, English is not Ama's first language so the text instructions are not elaborate, but between excellent photos, downloadable templates, and the fact that she is happy to answer questions, her ideas are definitely worth a try. I love the sculptured lines of these wall lamps and folded Geo lampshade.
With the use of just a few supplies - Canson paper, wooden dowels, and acrylic paint, for example - Ama has been able to light her home inexpensively.

With Halloween on the horizon she designed these skull luminaries, inspired by the Mexican el dia de los muertos.

On a completely different note, I enjoyed recording a video with Diane Gilleland about blogging, building a platform, and All Things Paper, the book. If you don't know Diane of Craftypod, she offers perceptive insight into the worlds of crafting and blogging, and is also an author. Quilting Happiness is her newest title.
