Belle & Boo and the Birthday Surprise

We are so excited to announce the release of the first Belle and Boo full colour picture book!

"It's someones birthday today - but whose special day is it? Time to make a card and a cake, and get the party ready. And with Belle and Boo there's always a surprise, or two!"

As I'm sure you'll remember from her previous posts, Mandy worked so incredibly hard on the book with the folk from Orchard Books, and her efforts have definitely paid off as it is absolutely beautiful and we're all very proud of it (and even more proud of Mandy!)  here at Belle & Boo.

The final product is 32 pages of full colour Belle & Boo goodness, and the hardcover edition (£10.99) comes with a removable Belle Hugs Boo print inside. It's available now from our website!

Some lovely folk have written reviews too which you can read here and here and here!

And have we told you there will be more books to come? The second book, Belle & Boo and the Goodnight Kiss is coming out in October. Very exciting times.

We have a brand new sticky tape online too. We had received a few emails saying that all our tapes seemed rather autumnal and wintery and would we consider a spring/summer tape. Why yes, we would! So here is the outcome... "Boo & The Butterfly" is a very pretty tape, that is thinner than our usual. It's 36mm wide and its 66meters long which is certainly more than enough for all your taping desires! I've been taping things up that don't even need taping just as an excuse to use it! Is anyone starting to think that Boo is stealing the show? 
Boo Tape!

 Yesterday Patrick took this photo out the window of Belle & Boo Towers yesterday. We figured it was a good omen for today's book release!
So pretty!

Lots of love,

Happy Easter

Hello, I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and a great bank holiday weekend!

I've been baking loads of Boo bunny biscuits (hazelnut and coffee flavoured - yum!) and lots of carrot cake as I figured that's what Boo would want this Easter! (I know my family appreciated it all too.) 

I hope all the lucky recipients of our Easter tins loved them as much as my gorgeous little niece in New York loved hers. I might be biased, but I don't think it gets much cuter than this.

If you went on any egg hunts with your tins be sure to send us in some pictures!

Lots of love,
Clare x

Welcome to the World!

We are so excited to announce the arrival of Mandy's little baby boys! 

Ellis and Samuel were born in Bristol on March 15 and both babies and mummy Mandy are doing well. 

The boys are very lovely and have stolen all of our hearts here at Belle & Boo.
