A Very Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone, Thank you so much for all your lovely comments & support through out 2008. It has been a wonderfully busy & productive year for Belle & Boo & miraculously Kate even managed to find time to get pregnant ! So excitingly there will be a brand new Belle & Boo baby arriving early Feb & an extra pair of helping hands with the business (a friend of ours called Tracy) but more about that in the New Year.
I LOVE decorating the flat for Christmas, then every year I have the same dilemma, sit in and enjoy the sparkly tree or go out and celebrate with friends, I try to do a bit of both, but the tree often wins!

& at last I finalised my Belle cut out doll, I am in LOVE, she will be for sale in my shop early January, complete with a wardrobe of clothes I would kill for !
Have fun everyone, Russ & I are now dashing off to spend time with both our families up North x

What's that saying?

...there are no buses for ages & then 5 come along at once?
It feels a bit like that here in the Belle & Boo studio.
A few days ago the the lovely Eloise from Hidenseek asked me to be part of her shop local feature, which you can read here, it's charming. I have been a fan of her beautiful illustrations for a while now, this is a personal favourite.

I couldn't tell her at the time (as I promised to keep sshhhhhh) but today Belle & Boo became Etsy's featured seller so thats what I mean about those buses !

We have only been up there for a few hours & we have been inundated by such generous convo's, if I haven't said it before I LOVE the ETSY community ♥

To celebrate we are offering 25% off all prints & don't forget there are still lots of scrummy stocking fillers.

Also a sneeky peek of whats coming VERY soon (I am SO, so excited)

also Catherine from Bumpkin Bears, contacted me to say she has opened an Etsy shop, how could you resist these festive Bumpkin Bears.
