Pack of 3 A6 Notebooks

Screen printed wooden clipboard

A riso printed calendar postcard

3 greetings cards (Good Luck, Pugtato & Birthday Tiger)

A HB pencil

Subscription – Flow Magazine

flow12

There’s nothing more exciting than getting a little parcel delivered to your door and subscriptions, in my eyes, are the greatest thing to hit the market since sliced bread! I have subscriptions to Graze, Uppercase, Papergang, Lootcrate and now I have my eyes set on Birchbox – basically anything that has good design and/or food then it’s a thumbs up from me. So you can imagine my glee when a lovely friend of mine told me about Flow Magazine.

A Dutch magazine that is printed in Poland and sent out to 20 countries around the world. It’s filled beautiful illustrations, creative articles and inspirational resources all combined with different styles of paper and completed with a little paper gift – this particular issue had gift tags and a ‘one letter a day’ booklet.

What’s great about this magazine is that the creators are full of love and you can feel how passionate they are about creating them. I am definitely signing up for these guys and I can’t wait to see what delights they have in store. To sign up yourself click here.

“Small happiness, daily life and the beauty of not always managing to be perfect. That is how Flow began. Flow is all about positive psychology, mindfulness, creativity and the beauty of imperfection.”

Textiles – Doops Designs

doops7

In appreciation of all this beautiful weather I went for a walk around the botanical gardens. There was so many different types of flowers, wonderful colours and even a terrapin or two! The inspiration came in floods, unfortunately life has gotten in the way of me putting pen to paper but that time will come.

The flowers I was most intrigued by were the cacti so I went on the hunt to find some pretty patterns and I came across a mini Australian based shop called Doops Designs. Ran by Designer/Illustrator Jane Newham it is filled with beautifully hand drawn images as well as being hand screen printed by herself in her small studio behind Byron Bay.

The cute cactus illustrations are on cushions, tea towels and even a ladies t shirt. Together with some bright colours using eco friendly water based ink these products look good and they do good – what more could you want? Have a look at her Etsy Shop and her Instagram for some lovely stuff!

Designer – Lizzie Mackay

lizzie10

I was looking around trying to find some cute illustrative patterns to help inspire me for a little project for my special little nephew and there was a huge selection on the internet but I found Lizzie Mackay. She is a designer and illustrator based in the West Country in UK and has an impressive portfolio ranging from childrenswear, stationery, books and fabric. She’s worked with Mothercare, Hallmark, Asda and BabyGap.

Her style is beautifully executed mixing hand drawn elements with vectors to create a mixed media effect. She uses limited soft colour hues to continue the cutesy theme and works well on children’s clothing. She has a happy go lucky attitude sourcing inspiration from everything from nature to interiors.

“I believe in dreaming big, laughing lots and following your arrow wherever it points.”

Check her work on her website here.
