Our new wood boxes for this parcel of pretties are on route to the studio as I type this! I am so excited to offer this for holiday, it is all the best sellers of this past year! It is also all my very favourites (the Queen’s English of course). The small parcel tags in the cutest oval kraft hat box, it’s not just a pretty item it’s so functional to be able to have this sitting on my work station when I am wrapping up parcels; before the tags would be strewn across the table and would get bent or have ink all over them and now they are housed in a perfectly delightful vessel. The tiny twine which I can’t get enough of, I wrap all my smaller items in it, it’s so delicate but still rustic. The Archive labels are a perennial favourite, they are just classic with their pitch black border, slightly off white color and wine label worthy paper stock, sigh. I have been in love with this imported deckled-edge paper since I was first introduced to it, rumor has it that the company created stationery for Napoleon and Josephine, it has a very royal lineage. It’s just very luxurious and what I use when I am sending something extra special. The monogram handled stamps are by and large your favorites so I put one in this set, but running a close second in favorites are the antler and now the striped bow (my new love) and if requested the monogram can be substituted for either one. The best part is I made the box to fit perfectly into a Priority mailer, which means that you or your recipient can get it in no time, it will ship immediately if you don’t get a custom monogram! Great for all the last minute shopper, but you aren’t a last minute shopper are you? No, of course not! This is a pre-order item and will be in December 5th, if you order now until 12.15.12 you can get it for $25 off the listed price, only you, because I love you of course. It will ship free in the U.S. (so sorry my overseas friends!), just use the code BESTOW at check -out, you can order it here.
Cute right? So cute! I love stripes, I love bows, I love tiny! Together you have the new striped motif stamp! Too many exclamation points? Okay, I will try to dial it down this Monday morn, but I am excited. I have to admit this holiday creep that happened the day after Halloween has thrown me a bit. Why did I not notice that people are getting ready for holiday so soon? I am usually either hyper aware or totally oblivious, it’s how I live my life, the holiday creep must of been one of my oblivious moments, but back to the stamp…I think it will be something that will be useful way past Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanza, etc. It’s just a good little stamp to have. It’s especially cute printed in red, very festive! Of course, I shall be giving one away because Mondays are always better when a prize is involved, right? Just re-pin this here, or Tweet it, or leave me a delightful comment, I am open to however you would like to enter to win. I will announce the winner next Monday. If you can’t wait, you can always pick one up here.
How is your shopping coming along? Are you like everyone else and have started your shopping in July for holiday? Or are you waiting until after Thanksgiving and will succumb to the holiday heat? I’m not a last minute shopper, I actually think about gifts all year round (if you haven’t gathered yet, I am a bit obsessive, so no surprise that I have been thinking about something for 12 months straight). This will be the first year though that I prepared so thoroughly personally. I was assuming professionally I wouldn’t have to bring out the goods until the day after Thanksgiving, but I have quickly learned otherwise–noted.
And I must announce the winner of last weeks giveaway the Stag silhouette + tiny snowflake, I couldn’t choose just one so I chose–Paulina Bäfverfeldt and Georgina Gill (because flattery gets you everywhere with me). I do hope it makes the winners less anxious to know they can make holiday goods (cards, tags, ornaments, etc.) on the fly! Good luck to everyone on today’s giveaway and thank you all as always for playing, it delights me to no end to be able to see what you will create with the prizes. Oh, yes, and of course this giveaway is open world wide!
Hello, and good Monday to you! I am not here, I am being swept away by my husband to the Appalachian mountains, have any of you seen Deliverance? If you haven’t do, but don’t, it’s seriously intense and disturbing. I will wax poetic another time about Jon Voight who stars in it (one of my top 3 favorite actors), but today on this fine Monday morn I think I should be giving away a set of the new stamps, no? I am adding an awesome stag silo, we have a ton here where I am currently living, so I felt duly inspired. For the record, they are much bigger in person than they seem in the media, the same can not be said about the Kardashian’s. I met them last year (the Kardashians not the stags) and the tiniest one is absolutely miniscule and the one everyone thinks is ‘large’ is totally perfect; I digress. I also have a snowflake in the shop I have a seriously cute striped bow that I haven’t had a chance to shoot for the shop (did I not mention I have been whisked away?). I am kind of crazy for it, I did take a shot with my Iphone here. I have much more to shoot, I have some new wood box sets, and some super easy but chic d.i.y’s. Can someone please let me know how holiday came so fast?
If you would like to win both the stag and the snowflake together and start on your holiday cards + gift tags, then I shall choose one winner on Friday (time is of the essence, you need to get ready for holiday gifting and what not). All you need to do is re-pin this or leave a comment below, I am easy, whatever you are up for. Btw, I so want to see how crafty you get if you win, k?
Tomorrow I have a new podcast addiction that I think you will love being introduced to! There’s maybe 173 episodes and I may have listened to them all in one day, maybe. I will also announce the winners for the ‘to’. stamp, thank you to everyone that played!
