New Year, Another Fresh Start

Hands up if you're all set for 2013? 

Me? Kind of.

Let's recap... at the beginning of 2012 I wrote a similarly titled post about a New Year, Fresh Start. I rambled on about all the new things and adventures that this year would hold and whatnot, and I must say the year did not disappoint. 

I did some freelancing, got to work in new industries, tried making my own rubber stamps (but haven't blogged about it yet as I'm not very good at it and need more practice) as well as lots of other stuff; all in all I had a fun year. 

I must admit, the thing that I've neglected this year has been this blog and the Left & Write shop - tut tut to me. I did have big plans to do more stuff, but you know - stuff happens.

So, what's in store for 2013 for Left & Write?

For starters, the Left & Write shop will be closing [insert sad face here]. 
As sad as I am about doing this, it's for a good reason - I'm moving to Hong Kong. So whilst I'm getting settled there, I need to put the shop on hiatus... for now.

In the meantime, I'll try and keep the blog updated as much as possible and be sure to keep you posted on any stationery adventures I may have in HK.

To commemorate our move to Hong Kong and to remind us of home, I bought these prints from Fade Out Design which we plan on putting up in our new apartment. 

All that's left to say is, Hong Kong here we come, and...

P.S Keep an eye out for the upcoming Left & Write mega-sale. Details to follow.

New Addition

Have you met my friend Lord Garland Jenkins?
He's the latest addition to the family and is currently residing in our workspace / office.
I think I love him.

I may need to get him a playmate so he doesn't get too lonely. The hard part is deciding who to adopt from Berkley Illustration.

Gifts From The Postman

I love when I get parcels through the post, and look what arrived today.

All the way from Japan - a selection of hand painted rice papers which I think I may turn into badges.

From good ol' eBay some Swarfega - apparently a good alternative for the Gocco screen cleaner. Will have to test it out and report back.

Lastly, also from Japan this Gocco Screen Correcter - obviously when I saw this I was intrigued. Will also have to give that a try and let you know how it goes.

That was all for today; not a bad haul if I say so myself.

New Look

I'm not talking about the high street store, I'm talking about the new look banner
for the Left & Write Etsy Shop

I thought it was time I got rid of my clunky attempt at a banner, and called in the professionals at MAUstudio

Nice, isn't it?

Well I may have to call on their help again to maybe get a new banner for the blog since the shop one looks so nice now; I can't have it feeling left out...

Every Kid Should Have One!

If you know any kids who have a birthday coming up, or maybe you are being super organised and starting to buy your Christmas gifts... look no further for the ultimate kid present.

Warning: The kids may not share this enthusiasm.

I think you can't put a price on nice penmanship.

You can find this genius of a notebook by dlaurengoods on Etsy.

This a reason to love Etsy.

But anyway for your perusal, here is the NEW STUFF.

After originally blogging about them here - I finally made them and got them on Etsy.

My First Etsy Sale!

With my lack of internet, I wasn't able to blog about my tiny milestone - I made my first Etsy sale. Woo hoo!

Ok, it may have been to someone I know - but a sale is a sale.

What did I sell? A pack of Say What... pack of 4 customised badges.

Wrap It Up: New Gift Tags on Etsy

I was able to squeeze in some 'making stuff' time and in the spirit of Christmas and gift giving, I made some more gift tags (now available at my Etsy)

I quite enjoyed making them using my trusty gocco, hand cutting the tags with my corner rounding scissors, and buying some lovely ribbon.

I love packaging and wrapping presents as much as I love finding the perfect gift. Hence my little penchant for gift tags. If I could make wrapping paper, I'd make that too... oooh there's an idea - watch this space.

Gift Tags: For Christmas and Beyond

When I was printing the Diamond notebooks I had some ink left over on the hand stamp and it seemed a shame to waste. So I carried on printing on some card stock until the ink ran out.

What to do, what to do with these diamond prints now?

At first I thought about turning them into notecards or postcards, but instead I opted to cut them out and turn them into gift tags.

A diamond shaped gift tag is just as good as an actual diamond you know!

So here they are now available to buy on Etsy

If you would like them printed in another colour, or tied with a different colour ribbon then just let me know.

Ink Diamonds

After wondering what to do with these books, I have finally gocco printed on them. Hurrah! I even got to use my new modified gocco hand stamp kit from Northwood Studios. Double hurrah!

I used a simple diamond design complete with sparkle lines (sounds like a move out of Bring It on) to print on to the front and back of these square spiral bound notebooks.

What I liked best about these notebooks was the colourful paper - almost too pretty to write on.

Anyhoo, now they are all packaged up and ready to go. Want one?
Pop by My Etsy.

Hmmm... what to print on next?

Open For Business

I finally got round to doing it.

I have finally uploaded items to my Etsy shop for sale. Albeit, two rather lonely looking items, but I'm working on it.

So feel free to pop by and maybe buy...

My Etsy

I set up my Etsy shop a while back, however it is still a little bare as I have not yet made enough stock to sell. I'm still experimenting with ideas and trying to decide what to make. So bear with me, but keep checking back as you never know ...
