It’s an age old question that’s left Children all over the UK wondering Just how will Santa Claus get into their house this Christmas if they don’t have a chimney?

With only 39 days until christmas rumours are emerging. It’s been said by some that Santa Claus uses magic to make himself teleport from outside to inside for houses that don’t have a chimney. Some believe that he uses this magic to make his sleigh and reindeer shrink, so small that they can, if needed, fit through the letterbox or any other tiny opening.

 

Of the 7.9 million families with children in the UK (Office For National Statistics) you too may wondering…

Just how exactly Father Christmas will be able to get into your home to deliver your presents?

To find out we went straight to our source in the North Pole and got the inside scoop:

“Don’t believe everything you read.  Sure, Santa Claus uses magic get into homes without a chimney” said one Elf who wished to remain anonymous “But seriously are you kidding me – of course he doesn’t teleport or shrink himself”

“He gets in the same way that anyone else would. He uses a key. But not just any old key, a key that has been left out on Christmas Eve by a Child. Most importantly: A Child who believes. And it is that child’s belief that creates the magic within the key”

“A magic key hung on a door on Christmas Eve night is your sign to Santa that your household believes”

So, there you have it folks. The answer to the age old question ‘HOW DOES FATHER CHRISTMAS GET INTO A HOUSE WITHOUT A CHIMNEY?’

The answer is simple… with magic…a Child’s belief… and a little help from a key!

Be sure to leave your magic santa’s key on your door at night as a sign to Santa that your house believes.

Giving money as a gift?

Giving money as a gift idea

Personally I LOVE getting dosh for a present. Whether it’s Birthday’s or Christmas presents, cash is always the best gift.

I have a list of beautiful (translate: expensive) things on a Pinterest board that I’d have had to have been a REALLY good girl to get as a present. Cash is the perfect gift because I can add towards buying something really amazing that I’ve been saving up for or wanted for ages.

BUT when it comes to giving gifts, I’m never sure whether the receiver feels the same way as me at receiving money. Is it thought of as lazy, un-thoughtful? Like you couldn’t be arsed, or left it till last-minute so just stuffed some cash into a card. I couldn’t disagree more, giving money is the most thoughtful gift I can give to you. If I’ve not found anything after my excessive online window shopping that I think you would want. If there’s nothing good enough for me to part with my money, that’s good enough to give to you. If I’ve not got a clue what to get you even though I’ve been waiting for hints over the past months each time we meet up. If I think you’re worth more than a last minute dash to get you something from the toiletries isle on my supermarket big shop (talc, shower gel, body cream). I want my birthday (girl/boy) or Christmas giftee to be able to treat themselves to something that they’ve had their eye on for ages but held off buying because it may have felt too indulgent, excessive or whatever (a Clarins hand lotion, Dior lipstick, a Mulberry purse or to put towards their travelling fund to Bali).

Christmas present gift ideas for people who are hard to buy for

Christmas cash money card

If I give you money it’s because I want to spoil you. And it doesn’t have to be a lot of money, but with any amount of money gifted – it’s the thought that counts – far more than a Boots 3 for 2 that I’ve had in the cupboard since last years January sales.

And the thought is in the detail. If I give money as a present, it’s going to be given in a sweet little glassine minilope, on a beautiful card that’s environmentally responsible and packaged in a rustic little brown envie or box tied with jute. Because I have thought about you, I do care and I want you to treat yourself to something you’ve always wanted.

Don’t buy talc. Be thoughtful – give the gift of money for Christmas or Birthdays with our sweet little hashtag cards.

 

We’re updating the website with all of our Luxury wedding stationery collections and they are looking FINE.

We spent the last few weeks in the studio getting photography tip top and first up to show off is the stunning gold foil beauties our Gorgeous grey and gold wedding invitations. Printed on luxury grey card (300gsm) with luxury gold printing and written in stylish modern fonts. We love this collection and it’s been a hit already with lovely customers.

Grey wedding invitation

Cool, clean, crisp and super stylish. These grey invitations look amazeballs when styled with all grey stationery items to keep everything one shade of grey. Super swish having grey invitations with a different shade of grey. In a recent order for James & Stephen we designed their invitations in the marble grey card but with simple grey info cards & RSVP’s (printed with the gold lettering) still in keeping with their grey and gold theme but mixing it up a little with the differing shades. If you’re feeling brave the grey invitations look striking when they are contrasted with black envelopes. But I have to say it quite frankly knocks our socks off when paired with a hot pink gift card printed in metallic gold ( I do love a grey and pink pairing personally ).

Other card colours are available for your wedding invitations. Loads in fact (not just grey) which all look stunning with the gold printing. We’ve designed this collection so far in navy and gold, black and gold, pink & gold and marble and gold. All of which looked so stunning. There isn’t a card colour that the gold foil doesn’t work beautifully with. See our board colours here:

Card colours for gold printing

Not happy with just gold printing, we’re experimenting at the moment with white inks and copper printing which we’re very excited to show the results of in the coming weeks.

So here she is in all her grey and gold glory. the Grey & Gold Wedding Stationery Collection is here. Isn’t she pretty…? If you love her please feel free to share with friends we want to get this collection out to as many people as possible. She’s too pretty to not be seen.

Dearest Spring

Spring flowersDearest Spring,

Where have you been hiding? I’ve been waiting for 1 whole year now. I was expecting you here on 1st March, you know the first day of spring. I expected you to stay last week when you came round for a brief visit. I’ve done everything you ask, I cleaned my house, got all of those odd jobs done, tidied the garden, bought fresh flowers, finished my wall gallery, polished my chandelier, bought fresh flowers. I bought myself some pretty summer dresses too, so please don’t tell me that you’re not coming. Not that I don’t like your brother Winter, but to be honest, he’s not really my type, he’s been hanging around since last september and he can’t stay here anymore.

Anyways, let me know if you lost my address –  I’d hate for you to get lost.
