Etsy Wedding Showcase May 2013

Last month I was delighted that my

Origami Bowtie

was to be included in Etsy UK's first wedding showcase at the Gallery Soho, London.

The two day event was by all accounts crowded with B2Bs, Bridesmaids, Mums and the men of course! Unfortuantely I couldn't make the journey down there myself but luckily Diana Stainton was on hand to take lots of pics. The full album can be found on

Etsy Uk's Facebook Page

and Diana has her own

Etsy Shop too

Vivid Please Print

I was trawling Etsy for a New House card for a friend recently and was disappointed with the lack of nicely designed New Home cards.

I usually use the Shop Local function on Etsy as I like to support local designers, perhaps re-acquaint myself with a brand I have seen at a craft fair or discover something new in Edinburgh, Scotland or UK. Also I was in a hurry and didn't want to wait for overseas mail.

This time I was sorely disappointed, nothing was coming up in searches. I tried Folksy too, but not one card would fit the bill. Too many blue nosed bears and not enough bloody good design.

It wasn't until my The Market neighbour of old, Vivid Please tweeted their Flirty 30 sale that I took a gander at their new collection. And I am glad I did. Instead of a card I would get a print. It was a great price and a New Home card & Gift in one.

It was only the day before that my Other Half and I were talking about the merits of Mac 'n Chesse Vs Coni-Cheese Vs Macaroni Cheese.

It came smartly wrapped by 1st Class Post with a bit of Washi tape & a "Words are for Nerds" pencil for good measure. A pressie for me and my friend. Now just to find an A4 frame...

"home is where the mac 'n cheese is..." Vivid Please, £12.00
