A Smiggle Accident
It’s no secret that I have a weak spot for cute things. However, I also have another weakness, stationary. Pens, pencils, journals, notepads, stickers, all the things! Now, if you combine cute and stationary together it’s an epic fusion of awesome. Smiggle is a store that does combine these things (and rainbows, with the way they organise their store stock). So.. I might have accidentally wondered into a store recently and brought a few things… >.<
This post is kind of image heavy (but they are cute images)
All the things
I have had a bag of things been sitting in my room for a while that I wanted to photograph and share. Some of these were given to me and others I brought myself. I wanted to share them because they are so cute. Beware this post may be picture heavy.
Christmas Ornaments. The middle one was a gift from mum and the others (two owls and cupcakes I brought from Big W).
My christmas designs, printed :D
My Christmas designs arrived and I am really happy with the result. I decided on the four final designs from all of your help, and what I liked too. Plus, I decided to have a notepad and stickers made. Even though the notepad is not really ‘Christmas related‘ it has to make an appearance. I don’t intend to sell them, just to share cards with friends/family and maybe include some stickers and a note with them. If you are interested in exchanging cards, let me know.
It might be a bit hard to tell, but the cards are also glossy and feel nice to touch.
Yay, giraffe Santa!
All the stars!
This photo kind of went a bit noodley and made the quality look eh. It looks better in ‘real life’. xD
Your friendly Christmas tree.
A fun little notepad I designed. I made the contrast of the design lighter, so you could see what you are writing haha. I also realised it’s a bit crooked. But, cute giraffe!
Loveable star stickers. I really love this and think they are my favourite thing (I do have a sticker collecting problem).
I am happy with how all of the designs turned out and can’t wait to post them off. I had all of my cards/designs printed with Vistaprint, price was good and they shipped really really fast! Might be a cool option for anyone in Australia looking to have designs printed. The only bummer is, when you upload a design, you can’t see a quality preview, they make you pay for that. But if you upload high quality files (for my designs I usually use the .ai, illustrator file) there is no problem.
Each year I love to design my own christmas cards and have them printed. This year I designed a card featuring three giraffes. It is a lot of fun to create your own cards and see them printed, I think it makes the whole process of sending them even more special. The christmas card was designed with Illustrator, however I have still not had them printed (I better hurry I know). Hopefully in the next few days I will.
What do you do for christmas?
Send cards, presents or something else?
