Sorry for the lack of posts lately but life has been hectic here with a craft fair every weekend since November, which I have enjoyed but now it is time to relax enjoy Christmas and look forward to 2012. I promise that next year I will keep up to date with the posts as I am going to go full steam ahead with my plans and start produce more ranges so it looks like a busy January!

Hope you all have a great Christmas and see you all in 2012!

I know it is not even Christmas but I am starting to think about my goals for 2012. It has been a non stop six months and now I have a bit of breathing space to reflect on what I have done so far and how to move on in the future.

I think my number one goal is to expand my ranges and give more choice. I need to concentrate on a male range (such a hard subject to do), a female range an older kids range and some occasions including Valentines Day. I also want to attend bigger craft shows to get to know my market to see what does and does not sell. A trade show would be good too but something to aim for towards the end of next year, don't want to run before I can walk!

In the meantime I am working hard attending as many of the local craft shows to hopefully sell a few things. Don't forget the online shop is open too and has many Christmas Cards and great gifts so please take a look.

Postcards now added too!

Ely Cathedral Postcards just added to the shop. There are two different versions in four colours and would look great in a frame together!

NEW hand screen printed gifts

Here are the new range of Tea Towels and Bags I have hand screen printed. The funky flower print comes in three colours pink/red, black and blue which are now available to buy in the shop at £4.00 for the Tea Towels and £5.00 for the Bags.

They are a perfect small token Christmas gift for a friend, neighbour or teacher.

Also a huge thank you to my husband for all of his help and patience with this project!

The Ladder Club

Last Friday I attended a Ladder Club seminar in Southend-on-Sea. The seminar is for new greeting card publishers and is packed full of essential information advice and tips of the trade. It is run by Lynn Tait from the Lynn Tait Gallery and guest speakers included Karen and Claire from Paper Salad and Jeremy Corner from Blue Eyed Sun all of which were very interesting and inspiring. There was a lot to take in and was sometimes a bit daunting but I am now a fully fledged member of the Ladder Club and hopefully will be there one day sharing my success story!

More new cards

I would just like to share with you some new birthday cards that have been taken from the beach postcards that I produced in the summer. A lot of people were disappointed that the images were on postcards and would have liked to seen them as notelets and birthday cards so your wish is my command and these will be in the shop very soon.

Funky Flowers

Been working on tea towel and bag screen print designs lately and decided that they would also look good on card and notelets. They will be available to buy on the website soon.

More Age Cards

Firstly a BIG thank you to all the positive feedback about the website, it really is very encouraging. Since launching the website I have also managed to secure my very first trade order with a local book shop which is very exciting. I will be adding a stockists section to the site very soon

Also more children's ages have been produced and are at the printers as we speak so here is a sneek preview of additions which will be in the website shop next week.
