Firstly I would like to say a big thanks to everyone who ordered a handmade by me surprise with presents in the post! This is now closed and all orders will be making their way out to you : ) For anyone who missed out on this, check out presents in the post here, they have different designers featuring each month and I know for certain that there are some awesome one’s lined up!
And here are some closeups of the fly away birds cushion cover, also available in tea towels, napkins, tote bags, purses, aprons, lampshades and wallpaper.
And here is a closeup of the space rocket solar system wallpaper, also available in cushion covers and lampshades…don’t you think this design would make an awesome bedside lamp for a little boy’s room…
If you are thinking about signing up for a Presents In The Post surprise gift, you should do so right now. I can officially (and very secretly) say that handmade by me will be joining up with Presents In The Post in the upcoming few months. Now I can’t say when, and I can’t say what, but what I can say is that it will be gorgeous!!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Presents In The Post…go here right now! With their beautiful illustrations, great selection of past presents and lovely photographic inspirations its pretty hard to resist.
“Presents in the post is a Surprise Present service and an online Shop. If you sign up, Raj will send you things by local makers in the post.
