Re-stocking the shop

I'm surrounded by boxes full of printed cards . . . the new 'not just for Valentine's Day" range has been printed and arrived this morning – and I took advantage of the sunshine this afternoon to photograph them.

I promised that my Etsy shop would re-open early in 2013 – well, I've dusted down the shelves and the new shop front is up . . .

. . . I'll re-stock the shop over the next few days; and update all the links and update the web site, so "bear with".

This morning, after Lorna had delivered the boxes of cards, I drove over to the picture framer's to collect some more frames – these are for the new woodcuts 'Love song' and 'My heart leaps' – they will be in the galleries soon.

It was a glorious day, cold (well below freezing all day) but the sunshine made the remaining snow and hoar frost twinkle; so it was a pleasure to drive up to Depden, a little village not far away, where I had arranged to meet Tim to persuade him to stock my cards in his lovely farm shop/café.

At the farm shop it was a pleasure to meet Cheryl, she is a very keen stitcher and knitter and was holding a 'stitch'n'bitch' session in the cosy café, so I joined her and had a bowl of Tim's delicious lentil soup for lunch.

And the good news is that my cards are now for sale in Depden Farm Shop.

Must go, I have cards to pack and prints to frame!



  1. The cards look lovely - and I really like Depden farm shop. I hope your persuasion was successful!

    When is their knitting group?

  2. That farm shop is fab (and right next to a great nursery too!). I'm sure your cards will sell very well in there. Hope the shop update continues to go smoothly :-)

  3. Sparkly bright start to the new year and the new designs are just great! I will look out for the reopening of the shop.

  4. Lovely cards :) Yea for a new stockist!

  5. Good luck with you expanding venture! :) x

  6. Beautiful cards, beautiful day..nothing is as invigorating as a cold, bright day and an exciting business venture! : )

  7. Your beautiful cards deserve to be stocked everywhere Celia!

  8. They look fabulous. One day I will have one of your prints on my wall too!
