I used to spend many happy hours making and decorating cards and envelopes as a child but then academic studies sort of got in the way and sidetracked me for a while. Over the past couple of years I’ve rediscovered the joys of all things crafty and couldn’t be more in my element! These are some of the recent cards I’ve generated by computer, but I’m in the progress of handmaking some too (photos of these will follow eventually!)
And here’s my little furry friend, impatiently waiting for me to finish taking photos so she can lay in the sunny patch (this photo was taken a few hours ago, and she’s still there!)
Just need to price this batch of cards up, and then they’re ready to take to my one and only stockist (so far!)
Word has spread (or maybe just trickled down the road) to the local landlady about my new little venture and she has asked if I’d like to sell my wares at her pub! So here’s my basket of Christmas cards all ready to deliver to the Star Inn in time for their Christmas parties in the next few weeks. I might just stay for a cheeky glass of wine by the fire while I’m there ….
I’ve been getting into the festive spirit and designing some Christmas cards to sell at various local Christmas fairs. Please can I just do this all day every day?! Here’s a little selection.
I’ve had a great time recently designing a range of new baby cards for Cherished Bundles to sell. They are currently being printed so as soon as they arrive I’ll post some more photos. It’s lovely to spend some time designing whatever pops into my head, in between sipping coffee and gazing out of the window at the beautiful hampshire countryside. A heavenly way to spend an afternoon when times are quiet at Standup8.
