Harry Potter Fans!

This week, although very busy, I have managed to find time to add a couple of new Harry Potter themed cards to the store!

There is now a ‘Deathly Hallows’ style card featuring the iconic symbol, that you can send for birthdays, or any other occasion you have in mind, together with a Hogwarts Express Engine card. Both have the Custom Request option, if you want to use this for  something other than a birthday. I have also revamped the Platform 9 3/4 card a little, which is already a very popular one! There is a themed card for those currently taking and hopefully passing their exams this summer. So I hope HP fans will enjoy receiving  any of these!

Don’t forget the general ‘Thank You‘ cards for teachers also available in store with the 20170605_115235Summer term drawing to a close. I’m sure teachers would love to receive these cards, just as much as the kids sending them, and there are three designs to choose from. If you have a special theme in mind, why not use the Custom Order item to have something unique created!

 

Look out soon for some new cards in the Mickey and Minnie Mouse theme range, as there will be some great new additions!

Wishing all the Dad’s out there a great Father’s Day on Sunday, so have a great weekend!

Sporting Time of the Year.

Spring and summertime are always great times to enjoy the outdoors and sports. I was recently asked to make a Custom Order sporting card for a birthday and this inspired me to add a small selection to the store. I’ve started with just a few popular ones to choose from. There is football, golf and rugby, but as always, if there is a sport you would like, you can always hit that “Custom Request” button in the item and I will do my best to accommodate you! Any popular requests will be added to the store. Click HERE to order online.

So with warmer weather and a long weekend coming up, I hope you get to enjoy the outdoors and have some Easter fun!

Happy Easter everyone!

Little Princesses!

Everyone loves a Disney Princess! Do you have a little princess in your life? There are lots of little girls out there (and some bigger ones! 🙂 ) who have a favourite one. So I have designed and added some new cards to the store this week with some of the most popular Disney Princesses! The cards have a costume design and a personalised banner greeting, all completed with a little sparkle. There are eight to choose from; Belle, Cinderella, Tiana, Rapunzel, Snow White, Aurora, Ariel and Elsa!

If there is one that has not been added that you like, you can of course request a “Custom Order” at no extra charge! You can check them out by clicking here.

Also, don’t forget your Easter cards too, which are in store. Three designs to choose from so I hope you will find something there that you like.Easter Cards (1)

Have a fun week!

Crafting, Cooking and Everything In-between!

It’s been nearly a year now since I made a huge decision about my life and lifestyle and decided to give up a very demanding career. I’ve been a full time mother of three, (which I can say is by far the most rewarding and hardest job I’ve ever had), and had a career for the past 20 years. I wanted to take a step back and appreciate the smaller things, because life is too short, right!? All the kids had left home and for the last 4 years it’s just been the two of us. The perfect opportunity to make a change.Changes (1)

Bored, absolutely not!! Do I enjoy not having to make the trip to work every day, yes! So now my days are filled with other things.

I craft from home and run my Etsy Store online which has been growing nicely. I’d always “made” things in the past, being a dab hand with a sewing machine, always making things for the home and the kids and loved crafting as a child. The store keeps me busy, creative and mentally active. It’s quite a lot of ‘work’, but so much fun! 🙂

I have also learned to cook……properly. 🙂 Something I was never very good at or enjoyed, but have found a new appreciation for and realised I can make healthy food myself!

I live in a village so have the opportunity to keep up my fitness, walking in beautiful surroundings rather than the treadmill after work. I’d become a treadmill slave, as this was the the only way and time I could squeeze in exercise. It could be a little boring staring out the window or at the wall, every day. 😀 Going out (weather permitting) is so much better, fresh air and scenery! (I still treadmill as a back up.)

Thinking about making a change to your life? If you have the opportunity and means, try it. You never know how much it may improve your life!

Have a great week!

There is also a new children’s birthday card available, from the PAW Patrol! 20170302_124051 (1)A favourite with lots of little people! This can be personalised as usual, you just add the name when you order.

 

 

 

Recently I had an order for a birthday card, where the name of the person receiving it was requested in Chinese, as this was a language they were studying.

20170206_132024-1I had some great feedback today, that both the sender and recipient “loved it”! Its so great to be able to do something out of the ordinary, that makes not one, but two people’s day! :),

There is a Custom button on each item in store, if you need an adaptation of a card you see and also the Message service. I’m always happy to talk to customers to make something unique for them.

Finally for this week, Easter cards available soon to order, so keep an eye out for those!

Have a great weekend!

Reaching Far and Wide…. Spread Your Wings!

When you are selling your craft online it’s hard at first to know if you should stick to local shipping or add overseas.

I took a little time to think over this one, how much would it cost, time taken to get items shipped out of the UK and eventually decided that it really made little difference! OK, so sticking a stamp on a UK item is pretty easy and walking to the post box is good exercise 🙂 Posting overseas means a quick trip to the local post office. Either way, when you are ‘working from home’, it’s nice to get out into the world and change your environment for a short while. All about the work/life balance!

This is something that I don’t regret in the slightest. I’ve had many orders from overseas proving to be a positive decision. If you limit yourself to a restricted audience, you limit the possibilities for sales. How silly would that be. So don’t be afraid to spread your wings, you may just fly!

This week I have added a new birthday card to the store….Baymax, 20170301_113848from the animated movie Big Hero 6. He’s popular with the kids and one of my grandson’s favourites too. As always this card can be personalised with the age and or name of the recipient. You can also request a Custom Order for this card design if you have something else in mind!

 

There were also some remakes of older cards too, so check out the store!

Have a great weekend everyone!

New Cards for Tuesday!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Busy for me with a fun BBQ (in the rain) means that we are sadly heading towards the end of the summer. But a busy week ahead nevertheless!

Lots of creativity, planning and ideas with new cards coming along in the near future!

Today, added to the portfolio are a second “New Baby” card, full of hearts, available in pink and blue. Also and a couple of very colourful kids cards that can be personalised with their names. Cinderella castles and carriages topped with a crown, wand and bow for all the little princesses in your life and trains and cars for all the little dudes.

More new cards added at the end of the week, along with some gift tags. So keep an eye out for those!

There will also be a September “gift tag pack” give-away, with any orders placed during that month, as we move into Autumn. Great for adding that personalised touch to your gifts.

Have a great Tuesday!

Sharon.
