Celebrating Winter with Visi…

To be honest, right now we’re celebrating the exciting fact that our placemats are in the latest issue of Visi magazine : ).  While they, on the other hand, are celebrating winter (and what a day to do that too). We’re just so delighted and honoured to be featured as part of their “32 reasons to celebrate Winter…No. 7 because it looks great on paper.”

I love having people over for dinner, especially in Winter. Not only do you get to cook heartwarming and tasty tasty dinners, and use all the pretty bowls and plates you’ve collected over the years, but you don’t have to leave the comfort and warmth of your own home, and you don’t need to hold back on the vino because you aren’t driving home afterwards. For those who are slightly less comfortable with the idea of hosting a dinner party, look no further than our decorative placemats, guaranteed to make your table look so beautiful, again and again, even if the food doesn’t quite work out!

Celebrate Home…

Earlier this year I was approached about doing some Handmade By Me advertising up for a new home magazine that was being created and launched in the United States called Celebrate Home Magazine. There was an article being written about a lady who had a collection of over 500 tea towels, and being a tea towel collector, maker and seller myself, how could I resist? Check out “Dish Towel Diva” on page 93. There was also a lot of support for young designers like myself to use this as a platform to get their products and ideas out there so I am really happy to help promote this gorgeous magazine, not to mention all the beautiful recipes, homewares and all kinds of great ideas it has inside.

Don’t forget to look out for the two Handmade By Me ads : ) I would love to hear what you all think???

Here is a link to download a free pdf of the mag and from here you can order a fully printed version should you like. Please feel free to send the link on to family and friends and enjoy!
