Little Treasures: Made by Hand by Pia Jane Bijkerk

This week, just when I needed it most, this beautiful, small, perfectly formed book arrived all the way from Australia. My heart skipped a beat as I opened the parcel and realised what it was. As I turned the pages it brought tears to my eyes. There is more love in this book than I have ever seen in a book before. This is a book of gorgeous handmade treasures that were sent to Pia's little girl from around the world when she was born.

So much handmade love, photographed so wonderfully in that special way that Pia does, adding a whole other layer of love on top.

This stunning, limited edition book was self-published by Pia and crowdfunded through Pozible.  An amazing and special project and I'm proud and delighted to have been a tiny part of that funding to make it happen.

In addition to the beautiful images there are little stories about the lovely handmade gifts and some sweet little tutorials too. A book full of inspiration.

As a mother, photographer and maker, this book just fills my heart with joy. I know I will come back to it many times for inspiration, a peaceful moment or to just reflect on the wonders of motherhood and making.  

Thank you Pia for creating something so precious. xxx
