I love sending and receiving cards. I always have a stock in the house for emergencies and forgotten birthdays but as a general rule I like to pick something special for each person. Ayoma Cards have a new subscription box service that allows me to do both.
Zoe sells completely handmade and personalised greetings cards on her Etsy shop, which you should completely check out. But she has also launched Ayoma Cards Monthly, a new monthly subscription box service for the cards and I have tried it out.
Excitingly I got sent the latest box from the amazing Boxcitement to review. This months theme is Pop Art and it did not disappoint. Filled to the brim with fun little gifts, each one picked to make you smile.
As you may or may not know, next week is National Stationery Week. The guys over at Stabilo believe that stationery matters and so do I. They aren’t just making functional and practical items, it’s so much more than that.

I fell in love with this option so much I got one for myself!!
Just before Christmas I was contacted by the wonderful people at Crafter’s Companion, a leading papercraft company who create and sell some amazing products that get us crafty types all excited. They wanted to know if I would like to review the recently launched Colorista Range from Spectrum Noir.
I love colouring in, it’s something that is quite easy to fit in around everything else and something I can even do with L. I can set him up with his own colouring book and crayons whilst I enjoy my own. So of course I said yes. Continue reading The Spectrum Noir Colorista Range→
When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.
I have spent enough time working from the sofa on my laptop, it has it’s benefits that’s for sure, but I have found it increasingly more and more important to have my own workspace and here’s why.
