Business As Usual

I'm back at Storeyshop HQ after a busy 5 weeks of freelancing in London. I was covering my old job as senior designer on Company magazine as well as getting to help out on the second edition of their 'High Street Edit' fashion magazine. An entire magazine nicely designed, on lovely matt paperstock and entirely about shopping. My dream!

I loved being back in Soho with every shop I could ever wish for on my doorstep each lunch hour but the thrill did wear off (somewhere during week three, I think) and I'm very happy to be back in the Northumberland hills with scalpel and card in hand.

Apologies again to anyone who wanted personalised cards while I was away. I couldn't keep up with orders on top of full-time freelance hours and commuting in and out of London (I stayed with my parents in Sussex for most of my London stint). All personalised orders are available again now though. Absence definitely made the Storeyshop heart grow fonder too as I have lists of new ideas and products to get cracking on! Although I am back to the lonely single tea runs, there's nothing like time in an office to make you appreciate working from home on something you love.

Here are some photos of a recent order I made for personalised menu cards. They were for a bright, colourful-themed wedding in France.










While I was away I also reached my milestone of 1500 Etsy sales. Woo hoo! I will be running a giveaway very soon to celebrate!
