Hot chocolate jar homemade gift with free printable label

My latest project is up on Polka Dot Bride.

It was designed as a sweet wedding favour, but without the wedding-specific label it would make a great idea for homemade Christmas gifts.

Check out the full post!

P.S. Don’t forget about the free blog event I’m speaking at tonight at Woodcroft Library! Meet some likeminded people and ask some local lifestyle bloggers about why they blog and the future of the industry. Hope to see you there!

Akimbo at Bowerbird Bazaar

I’ve mentioned my big weekend at Bowerbird Bazaar a couple of times this week so I think it’s high time I showed you some photos!

Last time my stall setup was pretty basic as I was just trialling the market to see if it would work for my business. Thankfully it did so this time around I put a fair bit more effort into my display. It still has a way to go but I am quite happy with it.

I launched some new products including these screenprinted white on kraft cards which were a hit so I’m very happy with that! (Coming to the online shop soon.)

And a HUGE shout out to all you lovely readers who came along and said hello! It’s so nice to put faces to the blog stats 😉
