Gift Boxes

A couple of new additions to my gift boxes range all on the website.

Just finished these gift boxes and put them on my website. I thought I would make them so that after the gift has been taken out then they can be used as trinket boxes for jewellery or hair grips etc. I know my daughters always had boxes of bits and pieces on their dressing tables and I think these would look good instead of plastic boxes. Having said that my daughter (whose birthday it is today) has just started selling the plastic shoe boxes on her website and I think they are just what I need, I love putting things in boxes and having a place for everything. So between us I think we got it covered!

My website is this is the boxes page.

Baby Card

I have just finished this Baby Card and have put it on my website and unfortunately found out that I am restricted with the number of photo files I can upload to my site. Don't quite know what to do now maybe I will have to keep changing the pictures on my website and actually archive all my pictures here or something. Or, which is what I know I should do..........upgrade my package......but gotta sell first!

Anyway here is the Baby Card .

Updated website.

I have just updated my website and put some blank cards on which can be customised if necessary, its very difficult to know what to make unless you have an idea of the recipient and that is what I would like to do, as I have before, the customer tells me who the card is for, some little bits about the person, age, gender, hobbies etc and then I make the card for that person. I then take photos and send them to the customer and once they are totally satisfied I then send it to them and they buy it of course (hopefully ;))

I had one customer wanting a special card for her daughter and she said she wanted a traditional type of card with a proper verse inside, not soppy and sentimental but a nice verse, which is what I made for her and she was very happy about it and I know her daughter will keep that card because it came from her Mum and she knew she really had put some thought into buying it. Another wanted a card for her daughter's 40th birthday and she was into horses, so I made a card with a huge rosette and 40 in the centre, the parents loved it and so did the daughter I am reliably informed and she has said she will treasure it.

It is nice to know that the cards I make are kept as keepsakes but more than that it is nice to know that if you received a 'pambi greetings' card that the person sending it has gone to the trouble of asking me to make it and that it has been made with care and sent with much love.

Have taken over my website, my son is too busy, so I have completely re-vamped it and to be honest I am quite pleased with myself for doing it.

I have put some of my cards on for sale and have reduced the prices so hopefully will evenutally get some sales.

Now I am trying to get it noticed.

So if you read this then please go have a look at my new website and I would be very interested in your comment, good or bad, as I need all the help I can get!
