Earth Greetings

In these times of e-mail, e-cards, Facebook, iMessage, SMS and Whatsapp more and more people have started skipping the traditional letter or postcard. Yes it is nice to hear that beep and receive an electronic message but at Christmas time nothing goes above an old fashioned, handwritten Christmas card from a friend or loved one. Of course we all know the paper we write our Christmas wishes on has to come from somewhere and many trees are lost to make all those lovely cards.

This year Sustainababy is offering you a fabulous eco friendly option, check out these gorgeous cards from Earth Greetings:

Cheeky Pickle

Sneakily I was pretty chuffed with our bread dough creations from last week, but of course there is always boss above boss when it comes to handmade treasures. Australia houses a lot of amazing artists and I know many of you love buying handmade pieces but you do need to know where to find them so I love sharing some my latest discoveries with you. This week’s handmade medal has to go to Cheeky Pickle, I think you will love their delightful range:

Cheeky Pickle Owl PrintCheeky Pickle is the love baby of Ali Benyon, a talented Melbourne designer with a keen eye for style, design, texture and patterns. She combines these interests in her own unique range of handmade, stitched paper designs featuring a range of different themes. From the sweetest animals and beautiful flowers to cute nursery designs and even personalised styles, what could be ordinary pictures turn into eye catching when Ali is finished with it.

Cheeky Pickle Light House PrintIf you are looking for a special piece to decorate your wall or compliment your nursery a Cheeky Pickle Art Print could be just what you are looking for. Each Cheeky Pickle Art Print ($24) is an (unframed) print of an original, stitched paper collage by Ali. The prints are full of beautiful little details; the wonderful colours, different patterns and most importantly the delicate stitching make each print a striking piece of art.

Cheeky Pickle FoxAs the prints are A4 size it is super easy to find a suitable frame for them and you can select a frame that really suits your room and decor. If you love Ali’s handywork you will be pleased to know that there is a range of Cheeky Pickle Gift Cards and Cheeky Pickle Gift Tags available too, the same wonderful handstitched designs but in bite-size pieces will add a lovely touch to a sweet gift or personal message. How gorgeous is this adorable fox from the Woodland Collection?
