In the spirit of all things Christmassy, the lovely folk over at Consol Glass sent me a fantastic hamper, filled with all sorts of glass goodies but there was a challenge involved! I had to come up with Christmas themed ideas, using glass, for Consol Glass to use in their Christmas eBook. What a fun idea! I thought I would share how to do Christmas with Consol. [Read more…]
I can spend hours buying gifts for friends and loved ones but I do believe, that you need to spend time on the packaging, as well as the gift selection! I probably spend as much time buying gift bags, wrapping and cards, as I spend on the actual gift buying.
I was delighted when Wilna, from Melrose & Co contacted me and asked whether she could send me a few of her gorgeous cards and gift tags!
Wilna’s creativity and love of pretty paper is very evident in her gorgeous creations. She started out making cards for friends and family, who eventually encouraged her to sell her cards. She uses plain and patterned paper to create her cards and may even up-cycle, bits of magazine pages, for a vintage feel.
There is something for everyone in the Melrose & Co. card selection and Wilna has also created a very cute, Safari and Farm range, of children’s cards and gift tags.
