Christmas Post Dates, Papercut Pretties & Giveaway!

Hurrah! I've emerged from my piles of paper to do a quick Storeyshop update. My studio really needs tidying as there is even more paper on the desk and floor than normal. All good though, as I have been merrily scalpelling away. I'm excitedly waiting for a magazine to come out with my papercut winter wonderland inside, just about keeping up with card and poster orders and also working on a range of design projects.

I have been freelancing a lot aswell. Designers across the land seem to be taking their last few days or weeks of holiday before the new year and I'm filling their seats and doing their work while they're away! It makes for some late nights, trying to keep up with orders at the same time, but also means I get to mingle in normal studios and offices and give my hands a break from scalpelling. I even got invited to a real work's Christmas do. Result! Sorry for the lack of recent blog posts, especially my 'I Want Wednesday' lovely shop recommendations but normal service will resume very soon!

Right, the dull but important stuff. Last Christmas posting dates:

MON 5TH DEC - South & Central America, Caribbean, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Far East, Australia and New Zealand
FRIDAY 9TH DEC - Europe, United States and Canada

Please bear in mind that these are the dates I'll need to have orders made and packed by. Current waiting time for hand cut orders is around 10 days so please order as early as possible to avoid disappointment. As with all my estimated shipping times, these dates are a guide and delivery will not be guaranteed to arrive in time for the big day. I'll do my best though!

I'll leave you with a couple of my latest papercut posters...

ps. In case you haven't seen on my Facebook page, I am having a little giveaway this week. Just head over to the Storeyshop page and 'like' and/or comment on my status about the giveaway. Winner will receive their choice of laser cut card absolutely free! I'll announce the winner on Friday. Good luck!

Guess what? We actually stopped working and went on a little holiday. We went over to Ireland (Greystones, Dublin and Donabate). Just a few days away but it feels like it was longer. 'Twas very fun especially as we hadn't had a break for so long and we got to catch up with two sets of friends out there who we'd not seen for ages, too. I didn't take my new fancy camera but took some snaps on my phone (excuse the blurriness). Yes, I'm the geek who always takes photos on planes!

(Think, maybe, I spent a bit of a long time in the advertising area of the Guinness Storehouse!)

I know. It looks like we just flew over, drank Guinness and then came home. Sort of, but we did squeeze a few more things in too! Great trip and I've come home feeling very inspired. So, once I have caught up with orders, look out for some new Storeyshop designs and lots more blog posts. And I think a giveaway might be in order too. What do you reckon? What Storeyshop goodies would you most like to win?
