Seven Things: September

A Glimpse of Life: Captured via Instagram

I snapped a batch of things in September using Instagram, I didn't post all of them, so a few photos will be new, even if you follow me. None the less, here are the stories behind these glimpses into my life of late...

 1 > Brooch Orders: I've had some lovely wedding orders lately, including a batch of bridesmaid gifts. I often wish I had more time for the handmade element that shaped my business and I hope that at some point I can reinvest in it.

2 > Birthday's and Celebrations: A friend had a very special birthday and a group of my closest friends celebrated in true style with a day at the Oyster Box Spa, cocktails and a delicious dinner. I had fun wrapping this gift for Amy's 30th, which included a beautiful Typo letter.

3 > Terry's Work: On a recent trip to I heart Market I spotted this sweet character created by Terry! Too cute! Her work is really wonderful and whimsical.

4 > Hot Chocolate: I have been working at the beachfront on a few projects and I can never resist a stop at Cafe Jiran for hot choc. It's delicious!

5 > Typo Visit: We finally have a Typo store in KZN, not Durban, but in Pietermaritzburg. Last week Caley and I make a little trip and what fun it was! I got a few little things and have enjoyed using them this week. I have stashed a few of the goodies in my 'gift drawer' to add to future presents.

6 > Card Swap: I recently took part in a card swap via the blog of Mezz. My partner is from Australia and it was lovely to create some cards and tags for her to use. I hope she likes them! The cards I received were hand sewn with little paper clouds and sweet button details.

7 > Another Swap: In between a mass of work, I did another swap via The Tichenor Family blog (thanks Caley for letting me know about it). My sweet partner sent me the loveliest scarves and I hope she enjoys the selection I sent her.

I hope you have a very happy weekend! Any creative plans?
