Creative Thursday “the tinies”

A World of Tiny Objects Spread Throughout the Fabric

“Creative Thursday” is a blog started in 2004 by an American designer, Marisa Anne with a wishful idea, “Engaging in creative activities at least on Thursdays.”
Marissa’s lovely illustrations created a sensation through SNS and blogosphere, and this popularity led to an introduction of her picture books and children’s clothing.
