PGC – Mothers Day Gifts

We’ve been discussing crafty mothers day gifts this week, from the point of a mother I would love crafty gifts from my kids, anything we could do together would be even better but it is a very hard thing to get “right” I use a particular brand of products which are not available in the shops: however I would love something hand made from my kids.. a cute picture or card would literally make

My Mother’s Day complete!

So what’s different with my mum? Would she appreciate a hand made gift more than something shop brought? I think so! All mums would prefer something from the heart rather than the shop which is why this year I will be making her a paper succulents garden to match her decor, I know that my mum will appreciate the gesture every time she looks at it.

I must admit I wasn’t taken with this kit the first time I looked at it in the catalogue but I’ve seen some amazing looking wreaths and boxes on Pinterest that I cannot wait to try!

Planner Girls Collective : My Favourite Planner/Stationery Shops

Ok Ok I know I post about my favourite shops alllll the time, I always like to buy from small business as oppose to larger corporations, being a small business myself I know the value in each and every customer and I always try to spread my business.. the months I cannot afford to spend I try to help promote and drive sales to their shops.. I believe that building smaller businesses is best for everyone..

… so you know I’m going to mention @thegeekyplanner, @hazydaysuk and @allthingspaperuk right?? I’ve covered each of these (in detail) before so I won’t go into them now..

Being quite a tight arse I actually don’t purchase that much, Little Rainbow Moon is someone who I love her shop and we have recently done some collab work, I have a haul video coming this week from her store, I find that as she uses her own artwork it really stands out and sings to my soul.

I tend to buy all my art supplies from HobbyCraft or The Works, I love ECLP for actual planners but I must admit her accessories seem really high in price and I don’t have a spare kidney to sell to fund a shopping spree..

..Unfortunately Amazon usually wins in all areas, although they are not always the cheapest I do love my Amazon Prime.. I love that I can think of something one day and it per here the next.. yay for Sunday deliveries. Another plus with prime over snail mail is that my mail doesn’t actually arrive until about 7pm and even then a first class letter can take a week to reach me lol.

But when I am on a binge and want to bulk out my craft supplies I head to http://www.everycraftsapound.co.uk as they have some amazing bargains, even if it is old stock, they do have a minimum spend and delivery is a bit pricey (but i begrudge paying shipping at all now thanks to Amazon Prime haha).
