copy - inspiration - what do you think?


31 January 2012

After an email yesterday I found another person who is very much copying/ taking a lot of inspiration from my work. If you are not in a mood for this don't worry see you another time with more optimistic mood, but if you have couple of minutes please follow these links: 

+  my shop/work - started doing these pictures back in 2009

1. number 1- started 2011

2. number  2 - started 2010

3. number 3 - started 2011

4. number 4 - started 2011

5. number 5 - started 2010

6. number 6 - started 2010

7. number 7 - have even similar coloured logo:) - update - the owner of the shop took down their listings and changed logo since this post... what do you think? I have had emails in past about some of these from my customers and let it go, as it just made me feel worse dealing with it then better. But today I have been thinking about  it  and I'm simply I do understand the word is becoming very small with internet and all inspiration around us, and we all look at the same blogs, websites etc. But you just don't get the exactly same idea, in my case personalised hearts with initials, dates etc, half stuck hearts, hearts from books, in row of 7x6....

So apart from ventilating this on my personal blog I won't do anything else I just hope...they step on a lego one point ( and nothing personal)....

Very happy we have a new stock list for our poster. Do you remember I posted these great photos just before we went to NY in November? What a happy coincidence when Sofia contacted me after Christmas about having our poster in her shop. And the poster seems to be very popular as they all already prebooked:)... Sofia has a great style, and her blog and home is prove of it...and how sweet is the name of her shop? .....little cute mokkasin

BIG thank you to Emma who mentioned our letterpress cards yesterday..

Hello there! Can you help me? I'm working on new stuff for the shop which involves "your favourite song" or " your favourite song lyrics" and I need some suggestions...this can be anything in English and no longer then 200 words. Thank you! and have a good day:)

new letterpress cards


23 January 2012

Because we believe that a message doesn't have to be shouted,

even a little whisper can make you smile or love.

new letterpress cardsnew letterpress cardsnew letterpress cardsnew letterpress cards
new letter presscards
This is our new project with Audrey. Letterpress cards, mostly "printed" without ink (blind embossed). All cards are printed by hand on vintage press Adana. There are Valentines/Wedding/Anniversary cards, Happy Birthday and Congratulations cards. Other cards are set of 10, 20, 30 in a box - Thank you, Merci, You are invited, or Personalised Monogram Cards. 

We love the almost invisible effect of embossing without colour and think that sometimes words with true meaning don't have to be shouted loud....
....Let us know what you think.....

things I & others made


5 January 2012

Just before Christmas I made  few presents for my sister and mum. I wanted to try make these ribbon necklaces for a long time. I made coral coloured one for my sister and navy and yellow for my mum. We also did a tiny bracelet with A. for her best friend, which we wrapped in magic bags from Audrey and had great fun making ribbons with butterflies and stars. 

On the last photo is a Birthday Calendar  also from Audrey which you can buy here.
