SHOP OPEN

Just popping in briefly today to let you know that the shop is open again for all your greetings cards, prints and enamel pin needs (haha well maybe not all of them, lets not carried away now). 

I have lots of ideas up my sleeve for new products and a bit of a redesign of the shop and website, and I will slowly be working on those in every nap time available over the next couple of months, but I thought I might as well get the shop up and running and then I can add and change as I go along. 

If you sign up to my newsletter which is going out tomorrow there is a 25% discount code to spend in the shop - a big thank you for those of you who have signed up already and are following along and getting up to date news, discount codes and freebies etc.

I have really felt so blessed because of all the support of my small business this past year - it has started to grow in exciting ways and I have really enjoyed working on it. 

If you do want the discount that I mentioned above I have made it super easy and have inserted the sign up box below so that it is easy peasy! 

Have a lovely Tuesday!

Insta Faves (part 7)

It's been a while since I have done an insta faves round up (and we all know I love doing them since I am on part 7!!). I try not to get too fixated about numbers on instagram but I would love to make it to 1K followers in the next month or so and I have been trying to be better at posting regularly and being more present there. It is my favourite platform and I find it so inspiring. 

Anyway, in my travels on there here are some of the people I have found and love following at the moment - I have tried to keep them all stationery inspiration this time because there is nothing like snail mail and paper treats to make me happy!


@unpeusauvage  - Delicate envelopes, stickers and notebooks and frankly life looks beautiful in the instagram feed of this italian knitter and stationery maker.

A notebook giveaway
notebooks01.jpg

Hi, my name is Liz and I have a notebook addiction. It is a bit of a problem really, I seriously can't get enough of them. I have quite a collection at home, and some of them are so pretty that I can't bear to use them. Crazy huh! I also can't seem to give gifts to my friends without there being a notebook in there. So eventually me designing some of my own just had to happen. 

I am so excited that I will be selling these at the Crafty Fox Market on Sunday - and then next week I will aim to get them up in the shop

In these photographs are only the A5 notebooks but there are also a couple of little A6 ones too which would be super handy to have in your bag for quick notes and lists and things. Also did you noticed the inked polka dot insides. I love that bit! The notebooks all have blank pages inside. 

So anyway here is the exciting bit. I have decided to give a few of them away! In the next couple of weeks I am going to be sending out my very first newsletter (eek!) - Everyone who signs up to the newsletter in the box below will have their name entered and I will pick two names at random to win a set of the two A5 notebooks. I will email the winners on Monday (5th October).

Also, in case you were in any doubt here is a great article about why you should carry a notebook with you everywhere

Hope you all have a great weekend and if you don't have plans on Sunday come and visit Crafty Fox and say hey! I would love to meet you in person!

An evening at the London Graphic Centre
LGC_02 copy copy.jpg

The London Graphic Centre has been one of my favourite shops for the longest time and I have been shopping there ever since I was an art student (it is actually freaking me out how long ago that was now!). Whenever I would visit London I would pop in and I got myself a really nice portfolio folder from there to go around to all my interviews when I graduated. 

I am now lucky enough to work pretty nearby, so I can pop in on a lunch hour or after work and browse all the paints, inks and pens and try not to spend ALL OF MY MONEY!

Anyway last week they hosted an evening for creative bloggers to pop along and see what they were up to. I jumped at the chance and the evening did not disappoint. 

Not only was it awesome to meet some of the other lovely creative bloggers that I have been following online for ages but never met in real life (and guess what - they were totally lovely in real life), but I also got to wander around the store after hours and drool over everything and also play with some new products and partake in a bit of colouring in. 

The London Graphic Centre have events planned in the next few months for things like halloween and Christmas but an exciting one that is coming up is student day on the 6th October. If you are an art student you need to get yourselves down there because not only will there be lots of fun activities, food items (art supplies and food is a totally winning combo in my book) - but you will also be able to get a 15% discount and this goodie bag jam packed with useful art supplies. They gave me one of the goodie bags to check out and it is seriously so generous. Check out some of the things you can get your hands on....

How cool is that Freitag card wallet! Anyway if you are an art student totally get yourself over to London Graphic Centre next Tuesday, and thanks to all the staff at LGC for organising such a great evening. 

Hope you are all have a lovely week!
