Bread and Jam Launch Giveaway

As some of you will know, I have been busy setting up a new shop with my other half, and so far so good - we've been busy printing lots of goodies which are up for sale, with more to be listed in our folksy and etsy shops over the next week.

So as a launch for our new shop, I wanted to let you know about a giveaway that we are having.
All you have to do is pop over to our facebook page and follow the instructions (all very simple indeed) and you can pick any one item from our shop to be sent to you.  Pretty fab I think.

New Beginnings

Well firstly I must apologise, its been nearly a month since I last posted.  I have no idea where that time went, and cant quite believe its May already.

I have, however, been rather busy, setting up a new business 'Bread and Jam' selling hand printed goods for your home and to give as gifts to loved ones, using are own designs.  I am not alone in this new venture, and have set this up with my other half.  We have a small offering at present, but soooo many ideas.  We just now need to turn them all into reality.

Anyway, I thought I would give you a little taster of our products so far.....


So if you fancy popping over to our shop to see what we have to offer just click on the banner below:

And we would love for you to come and follow us on facebook, so just click our logo to go through to our page:

Folksy Friday

After the announcement that postal prices are set to rise (again) it makes you wonder whether good old fashioned letter writing will actually die out.  Personally, I think there is nothing nicer than receiving a hand written note, to know that someone has taken that extra little time to write to you.  My kids love to receive things in the post, and I still encourage them to send thank you notes, letters and pictures. So for this weeks Folksy Friday, I have decided to feature some lovely handmade writing sets and note cards.  I hope you like them.

Ankara Notecards from Say It

Modplants Notecards from Mrs Eliot Books

Old Fashioned Text Message Notecards from Arbee Cards

Chihuaha Writing Set from Senior Picklesworth

Kawaii Kokeshi Stationery Set from Japan Corner

Winter Cow Parsley Notecards from Gooseberry Moon

Mexican Tile Letterpress Notecards from Cerulean Press

And these are a selection of my Owl Writing Sets in my folksy shop.

So there's no excuse not to pick up a pen and write a short note to someone you care for, when there are so many fantastic writing sets and notecards to choose from on Folksy.

Have a fantastic weekend x

Wedding Picnics

With all this gorgeous sunshine at the moment, you start to enjoy the outdoors a little more, and I especially love eating outdoors.  And then today I came across this idea - if only I had thought of this 10 or so years earlier, my wedding would have been so different.  So these are some fantastic pictures of wedding picnics...
