My name is Adela Silvestre, but as soon as the Instagram homepage welcomes me I’m magically transformed into The Mint Feather, a crafter who loves scrapbooking, Home Decor and product photography. There, I explore all kinds of handicrafts or fields of art. I can think of I absolutely go crazy for wood and cardboard techniques. The noise of my electric screwdriver is my white noise. Collage making is my favorite art expression and decorating my house is my personal therapy. Without a doubt, what I most enjoy is looking at random objects and thinking how I can transform them into something completely different and creative. Are you joining the party?
