Hello all,

Happy Wednesday to you and apologies for the lack of post yesterday - I had the busiest day off ever, it was pretty manic but I managed to conquer a rather mighty to do list - so well done me!

Anyway, it's a rather exciting day today - as you can now pre-order my new hand illustrated succulent kits from my Etsy shop! I have a few up for pre-order at the special introductory price of £28, they'll be  £34 once they're fully up and running so grab one now before they go!

Each kit comes with everything you need to plant up and care for your own little succulent, including a sweet little care leaflet.

They make an awesome gift {or treat for yourself} as they are super easy to care for by even the least green fingered of individuals AND they look very pretty on a desk or sunny windowsill!

You can get your hands on one here.

Let me know what you think won't you! :)

**p.s. If you'd like to see more - Harriet got a sneaky preview of my soon to come larger succulent kit & has done a blog post with a lovely snap of it here!**

Hello all,

I thought I'd share with you today a little project that I have been working on - it's a new product that I will soon be bringing to my little Etsy shop, just in time for summer {I hope}.

As you are I'm sure well aware, I have a bit of an addiction to succulents {there are worse things to be addicted to right?!}. Well I thought what better way to spread the love and bring a little bit of summer into all of your homes than to offer little terrarium/planter kits in my shop! They are the easiest plants to look after, and they're super forgiving if you forget to water them sometimes {oops} - so they make the perfect addition to even the most un-green fingered individual. Plus they come with all of the advice you need to keep them thriving! simples.
Each one will come with everything you need to get started with your own little succulent garden:

*//. hand illustrated cup planter
*//. proper cacti & succulent soil
*//. fine gravel
*//. the all important succulent or cacti
*//. a little care sheet
You'll then have the option for a few pounds extra to purchase a little terrarium toolkit which will give you everything you need to keep them happy going forward!

*//. plastic spray bottle {for just the right amount of weekly water}
*//. soft bristled paint brush {for dusting soil out of the leaves}
*//. round ended tweezers {for getting rid of dead leaves but not hurting the pretties}
*//. long handled metal spoon {to move soil into hard to reach places around your plant}
*//. a little handmade canvas bag to keep it all in!

There will also be the option to opt for bigger planters with a few more plants for the adventurous ones amongst you!

I'd really love to know what you think...all comments, suggestions, questions welcome :)
