I'm back and checking in to catch up with you all (that's if anyone is actually still reading? I've not blogged for such a long time) I guess I better wish you all a Happy New Year too (it's been THAT long!)
Life has been pretty hectic if I'm honest. I've been busy studying, doing coursework and revising for mocks etc. at College and then when I'm at home I've only really got time to wrap and pack all my orders from Bramble and Bracken (which have been coming in thick and fast and I can't quite believe the support and success of it - thank you!!!), gobble down some dinner and then watch a smidgin of TV (OK, I admit it - I've been watching Celeb Big Brother!) before going to bed and then doing it all again the next day! I am not complaining at all as I am truly loving the balance I've got at the moment of serious education and the excitement and fun of having my own business but of course somethings gotta give and in my case, it's blogging.
All the things I used to do a lot like baking, crafting etc I just haven't really had as much time to do lately and when I have done something I wouldn't say it was worth blogging about or was particularly interesting, so I am sorry there is such a lack of that sort of thing around here now.
However, if you used to like my 'finds' section then you're in luck! I am now hunting down and sourcing unique, special and down right gorgeous companies pretty much daily as part of growing Bramble and Bracken. I really enjoy finding out about little businesses and being on the look out for incredible artists who may not be that well known (yet most certainly should be) and that's the sort of thing you'll find in the shop nowadays. Alongside my designs on phone cases we've got an expanding range of stationery, homewares and accessories. Many of the items are made in the UK but we've now got some lovely new lines from the Netherlands, America and South Africa too!
Anyway, I'm rambling...here is just a brief look at a few of the items we've got online now! Lots more coming for SS14 too, so you'll need to keep your eyes peeled!
To go alongside our infamous 'Instagram' phone case, we designed 2 more for the new year - don't be afraid to admit that you're kind of a big deal!! ;)
Bramble and Bracken are thrilled to be the only UK stockist of Miss Honeybird stamps and have a vast collection for you to choose from - they come all the way from the Netherlands!
From a little less further-afield, in fact just down the road in Southampton are these brilliant cards - we love the hand drawn illustrations on them and we have pretty much every occasion covered! From Valentines to Mother's Day!
We are also SUPER excited for these amazing cushions to arrive from the US - there's not much more to say other than they're lovely! yay!
Well that's us all caught up then! Hopefully you all follow me on Instagram and Twitter so you can keep up to date with the goings on.
Will try and be back soon!
