ITS IN THE MAIL

While surfing the net this morning (and yes it was work related – kinda) I found these beautiful rugs featuring royal mail stamps from www.stamprugs.com. They were granted an exclusive licence to manufacture these exquisite rugs which can be used as a conventional floor covering or hung on a wall as art.
The colours are gorgeous and I have to have one. Only problem – what colour and which room!!

Back to School

I love this time of year and it isn’t because I get to pack my four children off to school again, well not entirely!! I love shopping for school supplies. Walking through stationery stores, with shelves full of brightly coloured notebooks, file folders and rows of freshly sharpened pencils. Its an excuse really for me to buy a new sketchbook and set of coloured pencils.
So to everyone starting a new school year, have fun learning :)
A new card from our Spring Ocassions collection – SS06 teachers have more class.

Just my Type

We’ve just launched a new range called “Just my Type” which includes birthday and other everyday occasions eg; new baby, anniversary, thank you, plus bar/bat mitzvah and a card to support a friend with cancer. Recently someone close to me was diagnosed with cancer and so this has been on my mind lately.

The 2 cards below are both birthday titles. The designs feature colourful text in different fonts and japanese paper diecuts added by hand finish the eye-catching look

The next three designs are also birthday cards

The baby card in lemon + lime makes it perfect for either a girl or boy. We added a graduation card to our everyday range this time as we see a demand for these cards all year round

The just my type ‘love’ selection includes a happy anniversary card with champagne bottle, engagement, wedding day and shower card for our north american customers.

We also included three ‘faith’ cards to celebrate bar & bat mitzvah and confirmation.

We welcome your suggestions as to new titles we could include in this range. Please let us know what you think.

summer road trip

Summer is our busiest time – getting all our Christmas orders out to stores and dreaming up fresh designs for the fall trade shows – so we usually don’t get much time to relax and soak up the sun. This year we made time, we took a 2 week trip north to Blue Mountain, Collingwood. On our travels we came across the Eugenia Falls Conservation Area. There’s a trail that takes you along the Niagara Escarpment and down to the scenic falls with nice views through the shady cedar trees.

On the road leading to the falls we found the Infinite Gallery, a former general store, which is now home to the exquisite art of Kate Civiero, handblown and fused glass sculptures and functional pieces too such as vases, bowls and jewellry. We bought a set of magnets in vibrant blues and greens.

Other artist’s work is also on display – the photographic prints of Urban Pink Photography were my favourite and we bought the three images below. My daughter chose the blossoms for her room because the turquoise matches her wall colour. The other 2 were my picks. Having lived in California for a couple of years I had to have the beach scene.
