Fa La La, Fa La La...May the Christmas Shopping commence!!

Remember, Remember the 5th November...not just because of Guy Fawkes, but also because that is when Angie last did a blog post!!

I have a feeling I may not get much of a chance to do many between now and 2013 so let's make this one 'Merry & Bright!' and may the festive chaos begin!!

The next few weeks for me will be filled with Christmas shopping (I've got my eye on plenty of handmade lovelies!).  I'll also be juggling a very full order book ...if you are on my waiting list, the heads up is: I'm full for this year and it looks like January is taken care of too so those on my list are looking at Feb 2013 onwards and I'll be booking those in, in January (I just thought I ought to get that out of the way up front!).

There is also quite a 'fair' bit of work to do for those lovely people over at The Heart of a Garden to take to Spring Fair International at Birmingham's NEC, 3-7 Feb 2013.  As I will have lots of new designs on their stand, I will be escaping for a day that week to have a very good look around - so expect a full Spring Fair review from me on this blog in February!

Meanwhile, have you seen my new Christmas card designs for 2012 in their full glory?...No?
...well here they are...

...There are 6 designs in total and all are available from my website, Etsy and Folksy shops as either packs of 12 (2 of each design) or packs of 6 (1 of each design)....

I'm not sure whether to list them individually too?... I really would welcome any feedback on that...

The cards are 15cm x 15cm and printed onto FSC, 280gsm card with white envelopes and are blank inside with plenty of space to write a full Christmas catch up note...

There will also be gift wrap coming to my online shops soon - those are in the process 
of being photographed nicely... 

...when you order a multi-pack of Christmas cards, I parcel them up nicely with bakers twine and attach one of these lovely matching tags...

...for the best offer on these Christmas cards, my website is the place to go.  My site is all paypal verified 
and secure - and because I'm not having to pay all sorts of sellers fees, I'm able to pass that little saving on to you and offer the price with postage included....

AND FINALLY!...just in case you didn't see my facebook page post last week...I am absolutely over the moon and thrilled to bits to be in Somerset Life magazine this month as their featured artist!

This month's issue is all about my home town, Bridgwater and it's magnificent, annual Guy Fawkes Carnival.  

Of course, our family all went and saw the carnival light up the streets of our town on Saturday night.  As always it just seems to get better every year.  It is not an exaggeration to say that some of the carts are full West End productions on wheels - completely amazing and very, very inspiring!!  The highlight for me was seeing how the carnival inspires my children just like it did for me when I watched it when I was their ages
...and look what that has led to!

 Have a great week! :)
