Hi %recipient.firstname%,


I have been very moved by all those who sent me best wishes in reply to last week's newsletter. Fortunately, as I said, the only damage that the tornados did to us was to leave us without electricity for a few days.

Thank you very much for your support. I will do my best to continue offering you exciting projects.


Oops. One of my subscribers, Marie-Josée, told me that there is a word for the fear of elephants. It is called pachydermophobia.

That prompted me to do some research. Is it true that elephants are afraid of mice? In other words, are they suffering from musophobia? Well, no, that is a legend that has no base in truth.

However, elephants are very scared of bees. And that is called melissophobia (or apiphobia). So, now you know :-)


The illuminated insects that I presented two weeks ago were inspired by an exhibition of Chinese lanterns that I had seen in Montreal.

This time, I want to share them with you. Take a stroll through the Chinese Garden at night by watching my new video...



There are all kinds of lanterns. Now that autumn has officially started, have a look at this lantern decorated with autumn leaves. It makes a beautiful centrepiece, or you can use it as a nightlight in a child's room.



More lanterns that you can make yourself:

Pumpkin Lantern Cat Lantern Chinese Lantern with paper plates Valentine Light


Have a great week!
