For the week that’s in it…look, see, win…

The Design Indaba Expo opens on Thursday so we have been crazy busy these last few weeks getting ourselves and our products ready for it. If you follow us on instagram, facebook and/or twitter, you may have noticed some sneak peeks of a few exciting new things we have up our sleeve for our stand, but just in case you missed them, here is a little teaser of what you can expect from Handmade By Me over the weekend.

For those of you who have no idea what I am going on about… “The Design Indaba Expo was inaugurated in 2004 and provides a commercial platform for the finest South African designers to leverage goods and services to the local and global markets. It also introduces the most influential international buyers to the finest South African creative products and encourages export.

As the only local platform that welcomes advertising, architecture, craft, décor, film, fashion, graphic design, interior design, jewellery, new media, publishing, product design, and visual media under the same roof, Design Indaba Expo is a celebration of diversity.”

Have a look here for more information regarding the event.

And because we’re so busy getting ready for the Expo, we are doubling up on today’s post so we can spend next week recovering : ) I thought I might leave you with this insanely large and extremely flattering article on Handmade By Me and me, Sera Holland, in the latest Ideas Magazine. Thanks so much to them for the amazing feature I am so unbelievably flattered and honoured!!

Christmas presents all wrapped up and delivered to your door…

I am offering a one-stop shop for all your Christmas presents this year! Its as easy as pie and you get to avoid any last minute christmas nightmares! All you have to do is send me a list of the Handmade By Me items you would like to buy and I will do the rest. When your items are ready I will gift wrap them individually and deliver them to your door. If you live in Cape Town you are very welcome to come and collect directly from me. For everyone else I have extremely reasonable courier fees and they can get the goodies to you within a day or two. For overseas customers I will use the post office. If any South African customers want to post items overseas I can do this for you and save you the hassle of doing it yourself. Please bare in mind for any orders not in stock I will make to order and the fabric can take around 3-4 weeks to arrive so it is best that you get your orders in as soon as possible.

There are 4 ways to best view my selection of products, here on my blog, my Etsy store, Hello Pretty and handmade by me’s facebook page.

Please note that I can customise orders for you too. If you see something you want, but its not available in the design you like, chat to me I am happy to help!
