For those Londoners on a budget looking to make the best of the sizzlingly weather today, here’s a quick tip. Pack your own snacks and drinks as you go out and about to avoid spending needless cash. A good example are these oat cookies which can be a great family treat & could distract the kids from the sweet shops whilst you soak up your long awaited vitamin Ds from sun!
Functionality is key in whatever I do, especially in the craft that I make and in my everyday life. So, making this flip box was important to me because I made it for a loved one living with Glaucoma. It is a health condition that causes loss of sight. To find out more on the condition click the Glaucoma link above.
My aim was to make a treasure box for storing things within reach, so that it's easily accessible. I also wanted to inscribe an initial on the box, using a raised cut-out letter for it's owner to recognise it easily if it's misplaced.
Thankfully, the box was well received and has proved useful for it's owner. Which goes to show that art can be a really useful tool when made with a purpose.
Every city has it's charm and Lagos is one of those cities that's filled with beautiful imperfections and unique contradictions. Imagine being stuck in traffic and seeing these words inscribed in Yoruba, a dialect of Southern Nigerians, saying 'Afi Suru'. Which means to 'Exercise patience'. It's the classic Lagos experience!
