❤ ♥ {playing cupid} ♥ ❤

Hello all,

What a manic Monday I'm set to have! This weekend was equally busy, what with our one year blog birthday and the little South bloggers meet I organised, as well as worky work all Sunday and orders galore to make!

I hope you all had a fun, or perhaps nice and relaxing weekend? Later in the week I shall endeavour share some snippets of our blogger lunch...but for now I thought I'd share a little insight into my role...as cupid!
So over the past few weeks my little illustrated Valentines cards have proved rather popular all over the World which is super nice to see - I love to think that my little hand illustrated cards are making people's v-days just that little bit more special...although I did think the other day how sad it is that all these cards will most probably get thrown away :( {Jack said to think of them as 'temporary art' - which made me feel a little better!}.

Anyway, I offer to write the customer's 'beau's' name on the envelope, which a lot of people like me to do, however this year - I've had numerous requests for me to write the whole card and sign it anonymously and then post it directly to the recipient!! This makes me feel like a real life cupid, but I did also think that with no name to the cards, but my sticker on the back - there may be a few men {and women} out there thinking the cards are from me?! Either way, it's nice to think that I'm helping to add that little bit of mystery and fun to the big day of love!

If you'd like a little card for your Valentine  - today is the last day to order!

Happy Monday!
xo.




{giveaway time!} love is in the air...

Hello all!

Is anyone else starting to feel a little warm and fuzzy with all of this love in the air? Well I certainly am.

So, in the name of sharing a little love - I've decided to throw a lovely giveaway. You could win one of three sweet hand illustrated cards by yours truly....and it's really simple to enter!

Three lucky peeps will each win a hand illustrated Valentines card - hooray!

{new} mini cards!

Hello all,

Today I give you a little update to my Etsy shop! The ever wonderful Leigh of Nook & Cranny was kind enough to send me supplies for the teeny tiny cards and accompanying envelopes you see below - I must say, I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for cute little things {and stationery - this definitely plays to both those loves!}...

I wanted to put together a little pack of cards that you could keep in the drawer and have one for every occasion!

I'd love to know what occasions you find yourself often needing a card for - I intend to develop and change the set according to what people want most - as always your suggestions are most welcome!

Here is what I have on offer so far:
*available as singles or as a pack of 3
I really hope you like these new additions - they are literally 3x3 inches - eeny weeny...
Let me know what you'd like to see on these mini beauties and I'll get making!

xo.

p.s. you can get your hands on these babies here!

The Cards Are Done...YAY

So, I've finally completed the set of cards ordered by the lovely Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth. Today I'm working on the brooches and pins they've also asked for. I thought, even though its a Saturday I'd share with everyone some pictures of what I've done.

Although today is a totally horrible day - that's probably actually a good thing because it means I can stay inside and get my work done without feeling like I should be outside in the sun!

I do hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far (I know it's not even noon yet!). I'd love to know what you think....



xoxo.
