A Giveaway with Crown And Glory and Rock n Roll Bride!

Nubby Twiglet | Rock n Roll Bride for Crown And Glory

A few months back, two of my friends, Kat and Sophie collaborated on a line of awesome hair accessories. The second I got a sneak peek, I pre-ordered a few for myself. After wearing them across Portland, London, New York and Palm Springs, I’ve fallen head over heels not just for the unique styles but also for the craftsmanship. These pieces are tough!

A lot of thought was put into this line and I love how each piece comes with a branded linen dust bag to protect it. I may be slightly biased about the line since there’s a Shauna headband but I actually end up wearing the Emma most often!

It’s Time to Pick Up The Scisssors. I’m Missing Making Collages.

Nubby Twiglet | My Cross To Bear Series by Shauna Haider

As I was digging through my archives over the weekend, I came across my art series from 2011, My Cross To Bear. And as I scrolled through, it reminded me of how much I missed creating collages.

I started making collages years before I really understood what graphic design was or owned a computer. In the late 90s, I began carefully piecing magazine snippets together, forming rough layouts. It became a huge passion of mine and lately, I’ve felt like I’ve lost touch with it.

Design is my job, but it’s tricky because it’s also my passion and my hobby. Doing design is my everything which makes it really hard to step away. But in a way, I’ve realized that don’t need to step away from something I love as much as just switch things up. Occasionally, I need to change the mediums and take the time to get back to my roots.

I’m ready to start making collages again. Just for fun.
