Magical Sale!

It's time to have some fun so there is a 15% off everything SALE over at my Etsy Shop. Running just until midnight (GMT) Friday 21st October! It's easy peasy all you have to do is enter the coupon code MAGIC4ME at check out and you will automatically have 15% taken off your total (not including shipping). There are lots of new goodies in store so I hope you'll enjoy exploring and can collect a bit of magic to hide for Christmas time, ready to spread to those you love.   Amongst everything you will find Prints that can be personalised and these new garlands which will be so cute for Christmas decor and can be used year after year, being made of a gorgeous quality linen texture card.


Alongside these you'll find Christmas cards, new scalloped Gift Tags and whole new Party Ranges (which I'll show on here soon)!

The Bears did not want to be left out of the magic so if you go along to their page on my website and take 30% off their adoption fee as shown then this is the saving you will make to bring a very special new friend into your life.  Both Callum & Romeo would love to spend Christmas with a loving new family.  If you would like to adopt one of them then just send me a note.

Must dash, there is an ever growing to do list, but I hope you'll all have fun with this Sale and
it helps you out a little during these tricky times.   Catherine xx

Springtime Baby Shower

Yes, I'm still here!  I've been so busy here with orders and getting new items ready to share that my poor Blog has been rather neglected.  You can always keep up to date more regularly on my Facebook and Twitter pages.  I've also been back in England and had a lovely time seeing family and friends and with sunshine every day, which was a bonus after the rainy Summer we've had.  As I sit here in my wool jumper with dark clouds out of the window I know winter is rapidly heading this way whilst my friends Down Under are enjoying Spring bulbs and blossom!   So when I saw these photos of a Baby Shower styled by the super talented Kate of Kiss Me Kate Events in Australia I knew I had to brighten your day with them. A while back I was contacted by Kate to illustrate some images inspired by the Bunnykins for her cousin's Shower. Do you remember the Bunnykins? I have got a sweet Bunnykins plate that I ate out of when I visited my Granny, with the little Bunnies running around the edge, so when she asked I hopped at the chance ;-)

I drew this wee sleepy Bunny sat on ABC blocks with a comfort blanket. Not knowing if it will be a baby boy or girl we decided to go with primrose yellow and a mix of greens and pinks.  To go with this Bunny I drew a running Bunny for Cupcake Toppers & Stickers.
Here are a few photos I took before sending them on their way.

For the rest just sit back and enjoy this beautifully fresh Springtime Baby Shower, which you can see more of on Kiss Me Kate's Facebook Page .

The most delicious looking Lemon Cheesecakes I've ever seen!

I loved these Bunnies that I am thinking I may make some items available in my Etsy shop , what do you think, would you like them?
Moving from Spring to chillier days over here I'm busy getting some whimsical Christmas items all together, so if you are planning a party in the festive season watch this space!
Thanks for visiting and I'll see you back here soon, Hugs, Catherine x
