{pretty pulp} lovely packaging

Clockwise from top left: via The Knot; via Hege Greenall-Scholtz; via The Die Line; via Upon A Fold; by Creature Comforts; by A Creative Mint; by Wild Heart on Etsy.

One thing that has been on my to do list for a while is packaging for my shops. In fact on my list it says “review Lime Lane marketing materials”. I mean in all honesty, high on the list is “spend some time on shops” but one has to start somewhere.

I have lots of ideas buzzing around ~ when do we not ~ but can’t quite pin down a neat, little packaging idea that I am entirely happy with. I have a picture in my head but it is still a little blurry, if you know what I mean.

So two things:

  1. I pull together some pretty packaging ideas ~ it’s fun, inspiring and helpful.
  2. And I throw it open to you ~ what stands out for you when you receive a package from a handmade seller.

My “research” finds the following might be part of the list:

  • it should be like opening a gift
  • there should be a personal thank you note
  • a free gift like a postcard or print
  • a return discount voucher
  • recycled wrapping
  • eco-friendly wrapping

get cookin’ and set the table… the in-laws are nearly here! by radishandruth

I’m actually in the middle of Christmas menus at the moment, as we are hosting not one but two dinner back to back. And Hubby has his heart set on a proper turkey this year.

We haven’t managed to lock anything in yet and we aren’t the types to cook the same thing twice. We like to shake it up, do something new and fly bu the seat of our pants each and every dinner party.

I must admit, I love the planning. Looking through recipes, writing down ideas, menus and lists. The sweating over the hot stove, not so much.

What about you? Traditional favourites every year or do you like to mix it up?

‘peace 2′ by gretchenmist

I’ve been a long-time fan of the work of Belinda from gretchenmist, I have one of her prints hanging over my desk right where I am sitting now, and always love getting a little convo saying she has included something of mine in a treasury.

Belinda’s artistic eye brings together the most beautiful collections, and naturally this one filled with blues and greens is no exception.

A little bit of peace for the festive season, also, I think, known as the frantic season.

Hope you are finding some peace and calm in the middle of all the festivities.

ps. Speaking of keeping calm:
