Printable Recipe Cards and Organisation!

Hi everyone. I’ve been organising my life recently! Maybe it’s the start of a New Year, but I want to streamline my life! I’ve been collecting recipes for years – torn out of magazines, scribbled down from TV programmes, tips and recipes from friends and lots of recipe books. The problem is they’re on scraps of paper, here and there.

I’m a fussy fusspot. I’ve been searching for the perfect book to house my recipes. I couldn’t find anything I liked, so I went for a plain hardback book from Paperchase – that way I could customize it with my own designs!

Recipe Book

I haven’t finished designing the cover. I made a little typographic doodle and cut it out and stuck it on the cover. I will probably change it. My recipe book is a work in progress, because I am only storing recipes that have been tried out and I actually like. So it will be a while until the book is filled. Read more…

New Dreaming on a Star Stationery!

On 01, Sep 2013 | No Comments | In crafts, etsy, my work, shop, stationery | By Tina

Hi everyone. As you may know, one of my dreams is to have my own stationery range. I have my own Printables shop on Etsy, where I sell some printable notelets (amongst other things).

However, last week I made little notelets boxes for these notelets, and it really started to feel like proper stationery!

A Spot of Comp Shopping!

On 12, Jul 2013 | No Comments | In design, designer, etsy, Hallmark, illustration, inspiration, shop | By Tina

Hi everyone. I’d like to share some Comp shopping I’ve been doing these past few months. Comp shopping is when you buy items from your competitors. (Although to be honest I don’t like to see them as competitors. They just work in the same field and there’s enough work for us all!)

These are some of the lovely treats I’ve bought!



This is a tiny folder containing sticky notes in different sizes. I adore the illustrations – so cute and bright. Read more…

Hi everyone. Today I’d like to talk about Etsy – It has recently come to my attention that not everyone is familiar with Etsy, so I would like to give a brief description of it.

My Envelop Shop Launched!

On 08, Oct 2012 | No Comments | In homewares, my work, shop, textiles | By Tina

Hi everyone. First of all apologies for not posting Thursday or Friday last week. I had a lovely short break in Cork and had limited internet access.  But today I am officially launching my Envelop shop, selling tote bags and aprons, so far.  I will be adding cushions and other kitchenwares very soon.  I am very excited seeing some of my designs on items and I hope you like them too.

Please click here to see my shop. ♡
