Notepad Monday

Don’t you just LOVE making lists? There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to cross something off. Sometimes, if I need cheering up, I’ll add things that I’ve already done on my to-do list just so I can feel the joy of the cross off (kidding, not kidding).

For notebook Monday I’ve taken a little side step and found myself in notepad land rather than notebookville. I’m sure you won’t mind. Right fellow list makers?

I gotta focus! – Quirky Paper Co (my fave)
Desk pad – Mi Goals
Remember notepad – Charm and Gumption
All in a week’s work – Thimble Press
To the market notepad – 1canoe2

An Ashley Percival Giveaway!

Two years ago I featured the gorgeous animal art of the super talented illustrator Ashley Percival. His animal illustrations have a kind of laid back, magical quality that would work so well in a nursery or kid’s room (or grown-ups room too – I’m a big fan of this one!).

I was so happy that Ashley got in touch last week to let me know that he had a bunch of limited edition prints available on his Etsy store. They are, of course, so lovely and would make a great inclusion in anyone’s art collection. Oh and they are perfect Christmas pressies too. Want to win one? Keep reading!

This one has been exhibited on the London Tube!
Owl of the Night.

Christmas cards too!

Ashley has also designed a range of Christmas cards featuring his animals that will be sold online and off (the range will be hitting Paperchase very soon).

Win! Win! Win!

Ashley has graciously offered to send 4 limited edition prints (of your choice) to one of you very lucky readers! There are a few ways to enter so get cracking! (Ashley will send the prints anywhere in the world too. Thanks Ashley!)

10 Christmas cards with an Aussie twist

It’s only 5 weeks until Christmas!

Christmas is my favourite time of year. As soon as the stores hang up their tinsel and fairy lights I start playing my Christmas playlist and start unpacking our Christmas decorations.

The way we celebrate Christmas is so very different than our friends in the northern hemisphere. It is generally hot, we spend a lot of time in the pool and we chow down on cold meats, salad and a big ‘ole pavlova.

As our experience is different it always seems a little weird to send cards depicting a white Christmas with snowmen and snowflakes and…well…snow! So I’ve tracked down a few Aussie Christmas cards that depict a Christmas down under. Enjoy!
