PhotobucketI first came across Anita Mundt through her scrapbooking and photography (she used to design projects for Scrapbook inspirations magazine). But I've just discovered that paper and pics aren't her only crafty-specialities! She's able to whip up beautiful projects from fabric and crochet too. If you're on Pinterest, check out her My Creations board. Anita made this wooden poef covered in vibrant print fabric and bobble trim last year. LOVE it! Reminds me of the stools we used to perch on when little in my grandparents house - but with a modern-day twist!
