Back To School With Hello Pretty

Mother's Day with Hello Pretty

A Very Pretty Blogger Secret Santa

So we like getting presents.  Our whole job is proof of that. (Plus buying online and having your stuff arrive all packaged up is kind of like mini me-to-me prezzies)

So we eagerly jumped on the #bloggersecretsanta bandwagon, organised by Kelly of Sunflowers and Spears, and I am SO glad we did.

When our package arrived, I squealed like a lunatic in the Post Office - which is fine because it was a Christmas rush kind of day, and everyone in there was feeling kind of crazy anyway - and stormed out, fighting the urge to rip it open in my car while I was still in the parking lot.

Over and above the excitement of receiving a Secret Santa gift, there was also the added excitement over that fact that it had come all the way from South Korea. I mean. How cool?

Roxy Hutton of citygirlsearching was our Santa, and boy did she hit the nail on the head.  Aaaalll of the cute pink cat stationery in the world seemed to spill from that envelope.  Every single detail was given thought and a great deal of love, and as a result it took over half an hour to unwrap (I had to take photos of everything to show you all, otherwise there’s no proof it actually happened.  You know, like yesterday’s latte art or this morning’s Eggs Benedict.)

Many thanks Roxy - you are a gift giving genius and I am in love with everything you sent and the considerable effort you put in. *hug*

Ohohohoh!  Also, if you love this stuff, Roxy is now SELLING it!  You can now also be the owner of pastel cat stationery from South Korea! Check it out over here.

We Are Messengers designs

Now ladies, in this Age of Craft, who doesn’t love a good ceramic somethingsomething and a pretty piece of stationery?

On browsing around IDSWest a while back, I came across the work of We Are Messengers - Alex and Iwona run the design studio, and created a craftier side business named after themselves to go with it.  Under the Alex and Iwona brand they created stunning illustrated ceramics, stationery and jewellery to be sold at various shows and markets, which are COMPLETELY lustworthy.

Gorgeous, no?  I’m just dying over those necklaces.  You go Alex and Iwona!

"This Many"

What a great idea - designer Sarah Hollowood’s “This Many” card from the Wieden + Kennedy Studio store (seriously, W+K, we heart you so much) lets you colour in the relevant number of candles, so the prospective birthday boy or girl gets a super cute card that’s also personalised.
