Little Dandelion's journey has enabled me to cross paths with some amazing craftspeople: woman, mainly, going it alone, forging a career on the merits of their artistic talents and their bare hands. Wonderful. Debbie Smyth is one of my favourites.

I was first exposed to the beautiful artworks of Debbie Smyth through Karen McCartney's blog on Inside Out Magazine's Home Life in January 2010. The intricacy of her pin work is incredible. I had never seen anything quite like it before. I had to have one.

I contacted Debbie and she happily agreed to create a one-of-a kind Little Dandelion logo for me. I could not have been more pleased when it arrived. It takes pride of place in my workroom and I look at it everyday for inspiration. Thank you Debbie. You are amazing. When are you coming to Australia to exhibit? We want you!
