A weekend of celebrations...

First off, a big Congratulations to the All Blacks for showing the Wallabies how it is done! What a fabulous performance!!  

Now back to the The Little Card Factory...
Happy 2nd Birthday to Crafternoon Tea.  Crafternoon Tea was The Little Card Factory's first ever market, and every month I meet more and more lovely customers.  A big thank you to Lisa and Daniel for all their hard work organising every market, we really do appreciate it. 

All customers from the market went in to a draw to win prizes from all the stall holders.  There were some beautiful prizes out there.  I hope the winner of my draw is happy with their collection of The Little Card Factory Christmas Cards.

Finally a huge huge Congratulations to my gorgeous Grandparents.  This weekend they celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary.  Unfortunately it was a bit far to travel home to join the family for the celebrations, so I opted for making an extra special card.

Congratulations Granny and Grandpa!  I hope you enjoyed your day with your beautiful family, sorry I couldn't be there to join you. xx

I know it is a little early but.....

The days are getting longer, and occasionally we are being treated to a warm sunny day which means Summer can't be too far away! Being from England, and only having had one Christmas in New Zealand so far, I am still getting used to the whole 'shorts and t-shirt, where's the BBQ?' Christmas thing.  It just doesn't feel quite right.  However, Christmas is still Christmas, no matter how hot or cold it is.  It may seem early, but before you know it, The All Blacks (or maybe England) will have lifted the Rugby World Cup and it will be the end of October and for those of you like me that need to send cards abroad, it is time to start thinking about here is a little preview of things to come at the craft markets over the next months building up to Christmas.... As always, they are all 100% hand made.  Each card individually drawn and coloured in!

Rather than selling packs of the same card, you will be able to 'mix and match' your own pack of 6 for a set price or buy them individually.  More designs are on their way, I just thought you all might like a little preview!

The Little Card Factory will be back in Kingsland this Saturday 17th September, so pop along to check out all the arty crafty goodness that Auckland has to offer...see you all soon.

A Rainy Saturday

When it is cold, wet and windy outside, there is nothing better than spending the day working on some new ideas.  Fathers Day is Sunday 4 September this year, so I hope to get a nice collection out there for you to give to your lovely Dads.  A few photos below...more to come soon!

For those of you who like to leave little notes for people, or write lists or even just notes for yourself, I have been making little note cards that come in a 10 pack.  Each card is plain white with a small drawn rose in the corner, leaving plenty of space for your notes and lists!  They also come with pegs for attaching them to whatever you like, or just sticking up on the wall.

And if you like the design, it also comes as a card...
