Archive for August, 2010

Made With Love will be closed until 6th September for our annual recharge of batteries holiday.

You can still order online during this time but orders will not be processed until we re-open on Monday 6th September. We will then be back to normal working on our usual lead times as though your order has been received on Monday 6th. If you can wait till then great news, place you’re order online & we will be in touch on Monday 6th with confirmation of your order as well as expected dispatch info.

We’re off to Ibiza (a kind of working holiday for Simon) who is the marketing guru for MWL during the day but a world famous DJ by night. Simon is DJing at Kanya Bar on the Sunday and has a few other gigs lined up whilst we’re out there.

So, whilst myself, baby Lilly & big brother Joe Joe are kicking back, pampering ourselves  & relaxing Simon will be following his dreams. How proud of that we are!

I can’t wait to feel the sun on my skin and the sand on my feet and look forward to returning recharged ready for the Winter Wedding & Christmas Greetings season.


See You in 1 week!

August so far, has been an incredible month. We’ve sold more in this month than any other month on record (& it’s only the 20th) & our cards have been featured in lot’s of really great magazines and blogs. We literally haven’t had the time to scan all the clippings yet but we’re working on them as we get chance. It’s looking like August will be the best month on record for our greetings cards & wedding stationery being featured in the press too. Fan-flippin-tastic!

We’re delighted to have had our purple Mayfair sparkly crystal buckle wedding invitations featured in the September 2010  issue of Perfect Wedding magazine (September issue out now).

In a Christmas Wedding with a difference themed article ‘Create My Winter Theme’  by top wedding planner Zoe Lingard.

Zoe suggests a silver and rich seasonal colour such as purple to achieve a wintery look that isn’t overly Christmassy & stationery with a bit of bling. Zoe says ‘ you can’t use too much sparkle when it comes to a winter wedding’ – our thoughts exactly!

Thank you very much to Perfect Wedding & Zoe for featuring us. xox

It took ages to make all the teeny weeny thumbnails to include in the large background for the MWL Twitter page but it looks lush. A bit on the busy side but that’s rather like my mind at the minute. Do you like it?

We don’t fully understand quite yet how to use Twitter properly but have tweeted a little & plan to spend some time whilst in Ibiza this month with some Twitter beach reading & get acquainted with the in’s & out’s.
