{Etsy} new festive look...

Hello all,

Thank you for your kind words about yesterday's little post. I really do love to hear your thoughts on all of my ramblings - but it means a lot that some of you felt compelled to offer your condolences on the loss of my grandma. You are all lovely lovely people.

Today I just wanted to share a small update with you...I thought I'd add a little touch of christmas spirit to my little shop! I know, I know - we're only in the second week of November...calm down Rachel...but John Lewis have started airing this years christmas advert {it's the cutest thing - watch it here}. So, if they can be all christmassy in early November and get away with it then..well, so can I!

Here is my new little shop banner...do you like it?
I was originally playing around with 'HO HO HO NO RACHIO' but it looked a little weird...


{Etsy} stationery lovers take note...

Hello all,

Do you, like me love stationery? Do you also love Christmas? Yes? Then look no further than my wee Etsy shop...

In my super organised christmas stocking drive, here's what I've added to the shop in the last week...they're my first hard back notebooks and I'm rather excited to share them!

{Etsy} dear santa...

Hello all,

Let me present to you, on this chilly Monday morning - my second offering in the run up to Christmas, I know, I know, it's October...but I'm being super organised, so feast your eyes!
Did you, like me used to leave a mince pie, a carrot and a glass of whisky out for Santa on Christmas eve? Oh my, I literally used to be in awe in the morning when I discovered the whisky was gone, along with the pie and a bite from the carrot...it makes me laugh that I believed it - I actually remember crying when I found out Santa wasn't real and thinking - next they'll tell me the tooth fairy isn't real either! {sad times}.

Anyway - as an homage to those amazing wonder filled Christmases where Santa was real, I created this super cute little hand illustrated treat plate. For those with kiddies {or those who are just big kiddies} this plate can become part of family tradition and {to be the biggest cringe} keep the magic alive!
You can get your very own little plate from my Etsy shop here.

Hope you had a lovely weekend despite the horrible chilly weather!
