Here is a sweet little card to ask your girls ‘Will you be my bridesmaid?’.
I wasn’t quite sure what to do to be honest, but ended up using rubber stamps, scrapbooking paper and washi tape for a bit of fun.
I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful package from Jenny in Canada. So gorgeous! She even sent me a banana bread recipe which I’m dying to try out now that the weather has cooled down.
It sure made a nice change from the usual bills and junk mail!
What was the last piece of ‘fun mail’ you sent or received?
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.)
Thank you SO much to my friends and family for their support, especially my Dad for helping set up and The Man for being there helping all weekend.
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
How are we today, friends? I’m still recovering from my huge weekend at Bowerbird Bazaar – no stamina now since I turned 29 on Saturday
I wanted to tell you about an awesome project I’ve been working on and have just released. Called the Clever Hello Club, it’s a greeting card subscription service where you receive two of my Akimbo cards each month.
Some will be seasonal and others will be for life’s occasions, both big and little. I love having a stash of cards ready to go for any occasion because I hate that last-minute dash to the shops before a party, don’t you?
You can choose from either a 6 or 12 month subscription for yourself or as a gift (ahemmothersdayahem). And because I know you’re spread all over the world, I’m not charging any more for international shipping (you can’t say I don’t look after you!).
I’m currently taking orders for the first shipment which will go out in June. Join us in the Clever Hello Club!
Since I was not at home for virtually all of January, everything is rolling around so much faster! I mean, Valentine’s Day, really? Where did that come from?
But the 14th is certainly fast approaching so it’s time to get ready. If you’re like us and don’t do fancy dates for V-Day, you’ll love this cosy breakfast in bed, topped off with a free card for your sweetheart.
I was pretty thrilled last year when one of my fave design authors Charlotte Rivers (not just saying that – I did already own some of her books and follow her blog) asked me to submit some of my work for her upcoming book. But then I put it out of my mind because books take so long to reach the shelves and besides, not everything that’s submitted will make the final cut.
Huge thanks to Charlotte and her publisher Jacqui Small. It means so much to me to be published in such a beautifully produced book.
