Competition closes on 25 June 2016, and the prize must be collected from our shop in Cape Town.
WHAT’S IN YOUR PURSE?
Our PURSES make the best gifts…whether it is for a friend or for yourself, you can never have too many – and you can use them to carry just about anything…from keys to make-up to pens to cash to sunnies. So we have decided to do our bit to help you tighten those purse strings this winter with 20% off all purses all week! Just use the discount code PURSESTRINGS on checkout. Discount code ends Monday 13 June 2016. Only while stocks last.
In other news, our first lot of trays and pot stands (ideal for holding hot or warm pots or containers) are finally available to purchase directly from our shop. They are all heat resistant to 120C, and stain & scratch resistant. The trays are made using melamine and the pots stands are cork backed with a melamine surface.
We have also just received lots of new stock of our colourful patterned lampshades…
…which means we have added some of our older ones to the bargain box in the shop where you get half price off!
I can’t believe that it’s already January again : ) Its 2014 this time, and I have a very good feeling that this year is going be awesome. There are so many exciting things already on the cards…Cape Town is deservedly the World Design Capital 2014 (which means there will be lots of fun to be had and beautiful things to look at in the mother city), Handmade By Me has some new product and design ideas in the pipeline (plus I am going to start painting again which I cannot wait to do), some of my best friends are finally moving back home to this beautiful city, some of my best friends are getting married, beautiful babies are on their way, and most importantly I am getting married to the love of my life and I can’t wait!!!
There is a lot to be excited for this year!
And with that I wish you all a fantastically happy and healthy year ahead!
To mark the first Handmade By Me blogpost of 2014, I thought I would leave you with this little article I discovered by surprise in the latest issue of Ideas magazine. It’s an article all about blogs, and my little Handmade By Me blog which I started right in the beginning, before I even had products to show you so I filled it with soup recipes, has been featured alongside some great local well known and established blogs. I am honoured!
SA Decor & Design recently featured a lovely blogpost about me and my fabrics, and this then led to the idea of us having a little competition where you can win a handmade by me lampshade in the design of your choice : )
All you have to do is LIKE and SHARE each post that SA Decor & Design put up for the Lampshades and comment on your favourite design from Handmade by Me.
Yes that is correct, South Africa’s premier online fashion destination 36 Boutiques is now stocking a range of Handmade by Me products! For those who don’t know 36 boutiques (seriously?), they are a predominantly fashion orientated online shop that sells both local and international brands, and offer all kinds of wonderful things like free delivery and free returns…in fact they make it really hard not to buy anything from them!
“We believe in the power of fashion to identify, individualise and tell a story. We spend every day seeking out the finest brands, designers and products for our members. We believe in managing a fine balance between local and international brands, always aspiring to the highest standards of quality, fit and fashionability.”
I am so delighted to have handmade by me up there amongst some of the best and most awesome brand names….yay!
