VALENTINE SALE and wedding planning panic

It's that time of year when everyone is 'loved up' and Paper Lark is no exception. I have just launched a VALENTINE TEMPLATE SALE just for you.

It's totally LOVE central at our house. Andy and I are getting married in April and planning a wedding is more hard work than I thought. As the weeks roll by, I won't lie, but a little bit of 'wedmin' panic has set in.

It is now 8 weeks to go until the big day... and I still don't have a dress. The invites have not been sent and neither the singers, DJ, venue styling or florists have been booked.

In our defence, we got engaged 2 mths ago and then jumped on a plane to the UK for a lovely Christmas with family. Only when we returned in mid Jan did we get our butts into gear on the wedding planning.

Joyiously we have booked the most stunning venue for the ceremony. It will be held under a bandstand high on a hill with views of the Swan River and Indian Ocean. Lucky us!

Then the reception is in a river front restaurant with our own private wooded jetty...not bad either! Some pretty awesome photo ops there.

Oh! and the most important task! we have booked our Photographer.....she is C.J Williams and we are so excited to have her photograph our day. Her work is amazing!

You can check her out here:

Be sure to check out the SALE. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day wherever you are!

A note to self disguised as a Thanksgiving blog post

At Thanksgiving it's time to review the year and find the people, events or circumstances that we are thankful for.

But what if we were thankful every day? Oh yeah heard that one before! Yeah me too.

But really, what if at the end of EVERY day we sat and wrote out the things we were thankful for during that day. What would that really do for us?

What if we cut out some of the complaining, the negative talk or 'poor me' rants we all sometimes have?

Could we do it? Do we want to? 

Do we need the negative to see the positive? Do we need to fall into the lows to be able to ride the delights of the highs?  

 

I came across a great TEDx talk recently on why humans seem to focus more in the negatives than the positives and how to get unstuck. If you have ten mins it's a funny watch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XFLTDQ4JMk

 

 So in this blog post that I have cunningly disguised as a 'note to self' as well. I want to say we should take lots of time every day to be a bit easier on ourselves. Be thankful not only for our friends and family but be thankful for OURSELVES. Maybe that daily 'thankful list' can include some lovely qualities we have and how we showed them that day.

Because who WE are, is NOT who WE THINK we are! Heck no!

We ARE who our best friends think we are. Cos' they have the proof! ...and they are willing to tell us all the glorious evidence at a moments notice.

 

Happy Thanksgiving lovelies

So please enjoy 50% Off!!! Here's to a pretty and sparkly Halloween!

New Holiday Card Ranges

It was really important to me this year to design some Holiday Card Templates for you that would be UNIQUE and have the 'special' feel to them.

Just as hand written notes are so special to receive, the Hand Painted Collection aims to give you something EXTRA special to offer your clients.

I've been working on these designs for a while now. I got my paint brushes out and loved getting

paint onto paper! With an added touch of gold foil effect these templates will hopeful be winners

with your clients....or even your family this year.

Stay Creative!

WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT?

In my world...it's got to do with a whole lotta love.

I am so lucky to be loved by the greatest guy. He supports me, watches me and cares for me. Paper Lark would be so different without his support.

And something you may not know is that I named 'Paper Lark' after him. Let me tell you why....

He gets up sooo early each morning with such energy and bounce that a few years ago I named him 'The Lark'. Dancing about making his breakfast, I have never known anyone like it. I can't even peel my eyes open at that hour, but there he is bouncing about and dancing, making me tea and wanting a hug every day. 

Like a child, he has not lost his ability to see the wonder and sparkle in every day. It's pretty addictive...and so is he.

 He has my back and I couldn't ask for more.

Thank You Andy
