Pre-release Aumsome Postcards – National Stationery Week Giveaways

With National Stationery Week sadly over, it’s about time to announce something special. Inspired by all of the stationery love out there, my own love of letters and a desire to spread a bit of joy in the world… I’m very pleased to announce that Aumsome the shop will be coming soon. I have designed my own selection of postcards to start selling. There are currently five designs but I plan to release new ones every month, to increase this. I am really pleased with the current selection, which I hope will be popular. These Aumsome Postcards are something that I have previously made for myself to give out and I love them. I am so pleased to be able to share them with you.

The shop will launch in a few weeks. However, the first batch of postcards arrives this week. For the third and final giveaway of National Stationery Week, I wanted to share with you a set of the postcards. The winner will be the first person to sample them! I cannot show you a picture right now – as they have not even arrived yet. However, this is one of the designs that was printed in a test.

The rest of the four are surprises. However, the winner will receive a bundle of postcards that they can send to their family and friends. As you know, I love writing letters. So I really hope this prize helps inspire you to write some too. As a thank you to all of you for your support, I’ve held three giveaways out of my own pocket…

30 Before 30

It’s dawned on me that I am a lot closer to thirty, than I am to twenty now. I have already done a few of the things that I wanted to do at this point. However, there’s certainly a lot more. There are some bigger things – like actually buying a house – that I’ve not gotten the chance to do yet. But more than that, I realised that there are a number of small things that I keep saying I’ll do and simply just never got around to. It was “I’d like to do this sometime” but without a fixed deadline or date, it never really happened. So, it seems like a good time to start a 30 before 30 list of things that I want to try and do in the next couple of years. A number of these are, most definitely, stationery related goals. A few are things I’d just like to do more of, and so have set some targets for them.

I’ll be honest… A number of these were influenced by my Stationery Self-Care post, which lists a bunch of ways that stationery can help improve your self-care routine. It’s something I need to focus on right now and that’s why, I think they quite rightly deserve to be goals that I aim to achieve. So without further ado, here we go~

New Year, New You? Goals for 2019.

The past year or two has been full of one thing after another. It felt like one obstacle after another. It’s drained a lot out of me and I dropped a lot of things – actively blogging being one of them. Heck, even being happy was a struggle for most of the year. A lot of negative things happened, that’s for sure. However, I’ve gotten to the point where I need to stop feeling sorry for myself and start actively living again. Time to set some goals. This is definitely easier said than done.

An unexpected bereavement in the family has taught me a lot. He was a man who worked incredibly hard. He was kind and selfless. Even now, he continues to inspire me. So it’s time to work hard and reach the goals. And what better time to start making changes than your birthday?

So today, on my birthday, I’ve decided to reopen the blog and hold myself accountable to start actively doing all of the things I have wanted to do. To work hard and achieve them. It’s time to stop slothing around and start acting.

Goals for 2019

Goals for 2018

Hello and welcome to the long over due post – my goals for 2018.  I know it’s already past mid-Feb and therefore we’re already over a month behind but this is actually my first post this year.  I decided to take some time out of blogging and focus on my health.  The hiatus was a little longer than I anticipated but it’s definitely been required.  However, without further ado, I wanted to jump in and start blogging again.  There’s so many exciting things that I’ve wanted to share with you.  I really missed blogging, so hopefully I can start sharing these great things with you again.

The Christmas Tag

The Christmas Tag is making its way around and it looked like a lot of fun so I wanted to do it today.  As luck would have it, the lovely Natalie nominated me!  Check out her lovely post here.  It’s definitely perfect timing so I had to jump at the chance to do it for today’s post.  I feel like it’s a good way to get into the festive spirit – and I definitely need some of that right now!  Because, for some reason, it doesn’t feel like Christmas yet!
