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. You can find us at stand H21, please come and say hi we would love to see you!

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!!

NEW: tea towels, greeting cards and gift wrap!!!

Tea towels and greeting cards in all my designs are now ready to purchase online at my Etsy store. Feel free to have a look and see if there’s anything you fancy.  All tea towels are printed onto a cotton linen canvas which is the best of both worlds really, linen for quality and cotton for softness, and they will last. Don’t forget about my Save the Rhinos tea towels, I’ll be donating 10% of any purchases to www.stoprhinopoaching.com

And after my valentine card became so popular I decided to make some others using my designs. These are printed onto a silk card and folded into A6 size, and are available in mixed sets of 5 different patterns, with plain white envelopes included. There are 2 different sets to choose from. See below.

****************************************************************************************************************
I am also starting a gift wrap service where I will wrap your purchase nicely and include a message from you in a card with the same pattern. ie if you choose to buy a vintage floral cushion cover for a friend’s birthday, I’ll wrap it up, write your personalised message into a card with the vintage floral pattern on it, and send it to the address you choose when purchasing. Please ask if you want to know more about this.
