{hello} it's time for a little giveaway...

Hello all,

It's been a rather busy week this week - in a good way generally, lots of nice orders from my Etsy shop - it would seem Christmas shopping has well and truly started! So last night involved a whole lot of wrapping of parcels and addressing labels. 

It's rather exciting times...anyway, there has also been exciting times on the Twitter front {hooray!}. I have passed the 300 follower mark, a mini milestone shall we say...so I thought I'd mark the occasion with a little giveaway. 

SO, to be in with a chance of winning one of these little beauties...all you need to do is follow me on Twitter {@ohnorachio} and then RT my tweet about this little giveaway. Couldn't be easier eh? I'd love it if you could share the love with your buddies - the more the merrier. 

I'll be picking the winner at random next Thursday via Twitter and here so keep your eyes and ears peeled and good luck! 

{IT'S COMPETITION TIME!} and the winner is...

Hello all!
Today is a rather exciting day, I had a rather amazing time at Wilderness Festival with Jack at the weekend, and now it is time for me to announce the winner of my very first blog competition...hoorah!

I would like to congratulate the lovely Louise Wright {follow her on Twitter @louillustrator - she's a very talented lady!} - Twix clearly found her piece of paper very appealing - as you can see below. 
Twix did a marvellous {and very thorough} job of choosing the winner. She spent a good minute rooting around in the bowl of names before emerging with one piece of paper in her mouth...they say never work with children or animals - but she was a gem to work with {I had visions of her a: not picking any out and being totally disinterested or b: picking/kicking out many names from the bowl}.

Apologies for the somewhat blurry photos I was desperately trying to catch the events unfold, and grab the piece of paper before she stuffed it into her cheek pouch!

Thank you a thousand times to those who entered {over 100 of you lovely people!!}, if you didn't win, do not despair - I shall be holding another exciting giveaway very soon so please do keep your eyes peeled for the next one!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I'll be sharing some festival photos later this week!

{IT'S COMPETITION TIME!} can you tell I'm excited?

{watch this space} it's nearly competition time!

Hello all,

Just popping by today with a little lunch time post to get you excited about next weeks upcoming competition over here on the blog! Yes, that's right - I will be hosting my very first competition...yay!

Keep an eye out over here as in the coming days I will enlighten you on just how you could get your hands something rather lovely...just perfect in fact, for this gorgeous summer weather...
{I'm super excited!}

p.s. I totally took this picture this morning outside my flat...gorgeous eh?


{monday monday} a sneaky peaky...

Hello all,

Hope everyone's weekend was lovely - the weather certainly helped with that I'm sure - let's hope this continues now until October eh?

Just a little post today to keep you all updating on what's going down in the shop and what's coming up in the coming weeks...

It would seem that I am by no means alone out in this big old World in my love for stationery. My 'Big Book of Ideas' has been selling very well and I've had a lot of interest lately in all of my notebooks, so I've decided to concentrate on filling the shop with a few more very pretty, hand illustrated notebooks. Summer is the time to plan, travel and get things done and what better way to keep your thoughts coherent than in a lovely little (or big) book!

Here is the first addition, some of you may have already seen it but for those that haven't...ta da!

I absolutely love this little beauty as it appeals to my love of Kraft paper (its front cover) but has a myriad of rainbow coloured pages within that you can doodle on, write lists on, or just flick through and admire - whatever takes your fancy!

Here, is my hoard of different supplies I came back with on a recent trip into London, my fave is by far the enormous rainbow journal - it's square {swoon} and has even more different rainbow colours than the mini one {yay}.

So, keep an eye out on Twitter {@ohnorachio} and Facebook {I have a page you can 'Like'} for more details on things to come...

oh and one more thing...I have a competition coming up...more news on this later! {eek!}
