We have been receiving some lovely emails this this week, a particular favourite of mine was from Heather,
'I'm always excited to see what Belle & Boo are up to and often indulge my 4 year old daughter in the odd item. Imagine my excitement when I just saw my 80s childhood patchwork bedlinen from M&S in your latest images to accompany your new book!'
I received this email just moments ago from sweet Elise
'Ohh boy, you've done it again! I cannot resist those cupcake holders. I have just made my third Belle and Boo purchase for the week!'
Which I think sums up this week nicely. It's been manic but oh so much fun sharing all our new products with you & now I can reveal the long a waited wall stickers.
Where shall we start hhmmmmmmmmm
I know BOYS YYYYYYeeyyyyyyyy
These dino illos were inspired by Tracy's son Jude who once told me I should draw a boy sat on a dinosaur (so almost a year later) I did just that.
I designed the above specifically for wall stickers, however we have also adapted some old favourites & I am thrilled with the results particularly these Cowboys & Indians Stickers.
I honestly can say if I came over to your house and tried to paint this as a mural directly on your wall it would not be half as good as these look. I am going to give these to everyone I know that has a son, actually just everyone I know that has a child!
Before I show you any more, I will quickly share how it came about that we now have wall stickers. When Kate & I were at the Kids Modern fair back in April people kept coming up to our stand and saying "have you met the sticker man?" "you should go and say Hi to the sticker man" When we did pop down to say "Hi" we met a lovely sticker lady and her husband the sticker man, collectively known as Chocovenyl! Immediately I was excited we had been in talks with other stickers companies in the past, but had never really liked the quality of the products. These wall stickers were/are stunning printed on a fabric paper in incredible colour, my photos really don't do them justice. We also really liked their ethos, as it says on their website
1. We will ignite you with our sheer excitement over this revolutionary new medium.
2. Unframe art, working with the world community of artists and the new generation of designers / illustrators who are creating a most exciting art for your home.
3. And, finally, we want to put a smile on your face.
Ok let me show you some more
Belle & Boo 1st Meet
Belle Hugs Boo Pink the stickers come in a variety of sizes include 5 very cute A4 size stickers called miniz which are just £14.99
This parade print you will have seen before as sticky tape (& will feature on a dress next summer) makes a stunning strip/border (Kate's little girl Robyn seems to think so anyway)
There are also these colourful balloons which were taken from a new illustration called 'Up, Up & Away' which will be released as a print next week.
Last but not least how could we not have a Boo, where will you put yours?
(seen here on Tracy's rabbit hutch)
oh & by the way I have used these stickers I mean really used them, they have been put up & pulled down far too many times now trying to get a photo that does them justice & they still look amazing (does anyone get the feeling I really like this product!)
As always if any of you do buy a set and happen to take a photo we love to see Belle & Boo in there new homes.
Which stickers are your favourite?
