It's my favourite kind of day today, bright blue sky and chilly scarf and hat wearing weather, the perfect autumnal day to start getting excited about Christmas.
I am very excited to show you some of our new festive products, that we are adding to our web shops right now.
My favourite first.... Belle & Boo retro paper chains, they remind me so much of my childhood, I can't wait to decorate EVERYWHERE in them this Christmas! it took a really, really long time to work out how to fasten them, we didn't want to lick or glue or staple, so Clare's very clever husband came up with a cunning paper slotting system, it makes my brain hurt just thinking about it but it works!
We have a charity Christmas card pack 4 each of 3 snowy designs, so that's 12 in total with traditional kraft envelopes.
25% of all profits from each pack will be donated to Bristol Children's Help Society helping underprivileged children take a break.
New tags that look very cute with our new gift wrap
and what about this gorgeous Christmas tape, we wanted our kraft envelopes and boxes to look like they had been screen printed with this snow scene, it was a little bit tricky working out the logistics but I am thrilled with the end result, expect to see it on any Belle & Boo parcels that come your way.
Then we have sweet, sweet tins, literally!
We are selling them filled or unfilled; with sweets on our website and unfilled on Etsy, so check out both. They are such a great price and beautifully printed, the perfect stocking filler and the sweets are yummy, I should know I have eaten far too many!
Talking of yummy and a stocking filler we also have a Boo cookie cutter, which I used for the first time yesterday. It comes with a recipe for 'Grandbunnies Special Spicy Biscuits' which are delicious and Christmasy. Adding boo's eye is optional, I used a kebab skewer, ouch!
In the next few days we will be adding a fun gift wrap pack, so thats wrap, tags and stickers and some really lovely fabric for all those Christmas craft projects, so check back here soon.
On another note, sorry for disappearing for so long, Russ and I took a much needed break too Devon, we slept, ate, he surfed and I walked it was perfect.
