Shop update: New Print
psalm_print06.jpg

I don't update my online shop nearly as often as I would like - and frankly that is just life - I can't always do it all, but I try not to give myself too hard a time over it. I know there will be periods where I can spend more time on it than others and that is ok. I am having a bit of a push to get lots of new products into the shop that have been hanging out as ideas in my head for far too long now. Last week I put up the new Father's Day Cards and this week I would like to share with you a new print that I designed.

When I read this bible verse from Psalms I knew that it was something that I wanted up in our nursery so that I could read it on a regular basis. Then I decided it would be a great gift to give to a couple of my friends who have recently become or are about to become parents. I wanted to keep it simple but I also wanted the type to be white rather than black and a bit more subtle than my other prints.

I decided to go for a simple grey background but then I tried a green version and liked that too - so I decided to get them printed double sided so that my friends could choose which colour they prefer and fit better in their homes. Genius huh! It is basically two prints for the price of one!

I got a few extra printed to go in the shop. They are printed on really beautifully textured card and as mentioned above one side has the grey background and then the other has the green background. They are A4 and could be displayed in a standard A4 frame or would even look cool on a clipboard on the wall, or washi taped on too. 

I think they would be perfect for a kids nursery or as a gift for a new mum. Or actually they would be great to inspire and encourage anyone. The Psalms really are beautiful.

If you want to get your hands on one they are on sale for only £6.

I think I had been getting a bit stuck in a rut again with my hand lettering..but I really like the last 3 of this set. They are a bit different and a bit more interesting. I am going to try and use these hand letterings on instagram as a chance to experiment a bit more as I really don't do that enough. 

In other news have you seen this cute little series Bianca has started where she hand letters things her friends have said? She included something I said - turns out a lot of people can identify, haha! I am looking forward to checking out more of them as the series continues. 

In other hand lettering news I am trying to get back into practising my calligraphy after this workshop earlier in the year. I want to do the next level workshop but definitely need to work a bit harder on it before I am ready to sign up. 

Hope you all have a lovely Friday and a great weekend. I am looking forward to hanging out with my siblings.

Guy's the winner of the epic birthday giveaway is Laura! Please drop me an email and let me know your address so that I can post all the lovely goodies your way! I have had such a lovely week and so far being 30 is going great! Next week we are heading to New York and Boston and I CANNOT WAIT! If anyone has any good recommendations of places to visit in either city, please let me know. 

As I mentioned last month I haven't been keeping up with the #52handlettered prompts but I have been working on my hand lettering regularly and posting it to Instagram. Here are a few of the ones that I created this month. I am still enjoying the white on black look so that is good.

Valentines Printables (Free)

I am not really big into Valentines day but I am into letting people know how much I love them whatever time of year it is, so I wanted to do a free printable that you could use for V-day but also at any other time. If you click HERE then you can download the 3 hand inked quotes that you can see in the images above and below. They are set up A4 size so all you need to do is download them and press print. 

Black type on white always looks good, but you could always print them onto coloured paper and card. They work washi taped to the wall or even framed and given as a gift! 

I also like the idea of hiding them around the house in places that the person you love will find them. Little messages of love to find throughout the day. 

I hope you enjoy using them and giving them. If you take any pictures of them in situ on twitter or instagram please tag me! I would love to see them.

Etsy shop launch

Happy Sunday! I am so excited to be able to finally share with you my etsy shop! I have been working on it for quite a while now and the day has finally come to launch it! Head over there now if you are interested in typographic prints, greetings cards and envelopes made of old maps! I am planning to keep adding things to it every couple of weeks so it should be worth checking back every now and then too!

While stocks last I will be giving away a free tote bag with every order over £20 - so if you see anything you fancy get in there quick! The tote bag has the slogan 'Off on an adventure - back soon' on it and was hand drawn by me with an illustration of a bike. There are 20 of these tote bags so get in there before they are all gone. 

Over the coming months I am also planning to do a giveaway and some promo codes so keep checking back here on the blog and on twitter to find out what is going on and maybe snag yourself a cheeky discount! 

Anyway I am so happy to finally be properly involved in the wonderful etsy community (I have dabbled a bit in the past but am taking it a lot more seriously this time!). I would love to hear from you, so feel free to get in touch if you would like anything at a different size or if you would like me to work on a custom order for you! Check out the new shop here.

Have a great week!
