Well I've really not been too good at posting anything on social media this past month - I think Christmas and my little boys second birthday has took up most of the time I usually set aside for those things. But it's a new year, the Christmas decorations are down and I feel so ready to get going again with my card business! Sunshine and Freckles finished the year and went into 2018 on a high as our cards are now stocked in the fabulous Arighi Bianchi in Macclesfield, Cheshire!
I really am so happy that such a prestigious shop, with such wonderful and unique home furnishings and giftware are stocking our cards!
Happy New Year everyone!
We are pretty chuffed that our cards are now stocked in Tea-Cake in Leek. You will find this gorgeous little gift shop and tearoom in Getliffe's Yard just off Derby Street. Getliffe's Yard is a bit of a hidden gem in Leek, but really has the most lovely boutiques and small businesses, just what Leek as a town is all about. We cant wait to pop in and see our cards :)
It seems like I've been getting my three new card ranges ready for ages now (its hasn't really, in the grand scheme of things). But with being a working mum, juggling work, home life and looking after our gorgeous little man, I have to try to grab to a bit of time while he naps and on a night to finish the designs off and get them ready for print. It probably has taken longer than I thought. But I wouldn't have it any other way!
They will be launched by the end of the week (which is also when I turn the big 3-0!...ahh), and I really cant wait for you to see them.
We have not one, not two, but THREE brand new card ranges coming very soon!
Included is a funky range of age cards, named 'Neon Numbers' all featuring gold or silver foil elements and bright neon coloured paint splats! (Super cool if we do say so!)
'Gold Rose' which is a cute mix of everyday cards with a fun, care free feel, all featuring gold, silver and very on trend rose gold embellishments.
And last but not least, 'Rustic Ruby'! Ten gorgeous cards with a naive, rustic feel with gold, silver and rose gold lettering and elements.
Expecting samples back from the printers this week, we'll be able to show you our newbies very soon!
We are so excited to have a lovely little feature on the Print and Pattern design blog!
I've read this blog ever since I graduated University way back in 2010 (seems like an age ago now!) and it always features such brilliant surface pattern design, from small independent designers and illustrators to the big guys such as Debenhams, Caroline Gardner, Paperchase and Boden! Bowie Style (the author of the blog) has even released several Print and Pattern books.
Thanks so much Bowie Style, as a little designer and illustrator starting up a new business in this field, its super lovely to get a little notice from someone with such an amazing eye for design!
