Getting There

It's slowly all coming together. I spent the day looking after the gorgeous baby Robyn, whilst Kate worked on the business plan (doesn't that sound grand!) we lunched in front of Tower Bridge, ham sandwich for me, milk for Robyn! but anyway I am getting side tracked what I really popped on here to say before I go and eat the delicious dinner Russ has made for me is......
... I have just uploaded the new invites, notebooks & blank cards on to Etsy all made from recycled card & paper & all very sweet.
Invites are flat cards, printed on both sides, there are 8 in a pack, with white recycled envelopes.

Ava's Tea Party

& for the boys Pirate Party

There are 4 different Note Books, I am not sure which my favourite is just yet

oohh I don't really have time to list all the new cards (Russ is hovering!) but quickly I will just upload my favourite

& one last thing a BIG thanks for all the feedback left on my last post, it really helps to know what you are thinking.

sOOOOoooo many NEW products

I have spent the entire weekend, photographing, resizing, colour adjusting NEW products. WWhhoooooo HHoooooo I would like to say, it's all done, but oh no, no, no, no, I am actually going a little crazy ! I am only about half way through, but I thought I would give you a sneaky peek, before they are available in the shops.

Large Prints
We are constantly asked for larger prints, so have decided to start with these 2,
Ava's Tea Party : To fit a 16" by 20" frame

Pirate Party : To fit a 40cm by 40cm frame.

Note Books
Which if I do say so myself are so yummy and well made, they are produced by 1973 & are printed with vegetable inks on board made from 100% recycled pulp.
There are 4 styles all together, here is a peek at 2

Check back soon, to see a new dress, part invitations and 8 new blank greeting cards.
Actually whilst I think about it I wanted to ask your opinion about other possible new products. We might have an opportunity to produce a range of bath time products for young children 3-7 year olds. It is a delicious, natural, nostalgic range of products, but it would involve a sizable investment, I guess Kate & I are just weighing up the pros and cons & any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

OK my eyes are square, gotta go and stare at the sky for a while x

'Ola' Russ & I just got back from our first home exchange. We swapped our flat in London for a house in the Albaicin district of Granada, Spain.

The house is situated on a square that the guide books boast has the best view of the Alhambra & they are not kidding.

It was a flying visit just 3 days, but long enough to be boosted by that Spanish passion for life, the food, music & the Alhambra, what can I say? We visited 2 days on the run and I woke up on the last morning wishing I could go back again. 'Gracias' Christine & Stik for trusting us with your beautiful home.
