Today is a mummy/baby day but as my baby is STILL asleep (😱) I’ve snuck up to the studio to do a quick tidy up. I’m finding the days I commit to working are all go go go on the projects in hand so the space gets messy quite easily. So I’m having a quick tidy out of the drawers whilst I can, making sure everything has it’s perfect place in an organised system. I’ve got loads of little loose bits like these wax sticks so making mini compartments for things, which quite frankly makes me very happy 😊🤓

Day one being back at work (part time for now) and I’m already feeling that pressure of being good enough. Having good enough content, good enough designs, good enough service... it goes on. The past few months of my personal life have definitely put a few things into perspective but I wish I could ease off on myself when it came to work. It’s not that I don’t believe I should offer the best work I possibly can, because of course I do and always will but it’s trying not to compare what I do to others. And reminding myself that those others may have had a very different 2018 to what I have. I’ve not had the time I’d have liked to have committed to my business. I’ve not been able to socialise with work friends or attend events I’d have liked to. I may have talked about my new branding for far too long and still not got it out there but feeling this way is not going to help. So, phone down, kettle on and off to focus on one little baby step at a time with a positive attitude. Paperknots is back! #letsdothis

I’ve mentioned previously that I am selling quite a few wedding items on here to make way for the new website. And here is the BEST one yet. These wedding stationery DIY kits now start from just £50 for 25 invitation suites. That’s £2 for an invitation, details card, RSVP (with envelope), wrap, tag, twine and postage envelopes! Perfect for the couple looking for stylish stationery at an affordable price. I’ll be adding all the details and a link in my stories which will remain in my ‘story highlights’ until items have sold out. Give your friends a little tag if this could help them with their #diywedding or #budgetwedding 💌

Think it must be the graphic designer in me but my head will always turn when I spot striking numbers. Definitely #mytypeonpaper 😆(or building in this case). Not sure what it is about them but typographically I always find them very pleasing #designgeek #numbergeek 🤓

2 years ago today. One of the happiest most memorable days of my life. We never stopped smiling and I can’t stop smiling when I think back to these very special moments. Chris surprised me by booking the day off work today so we can spend it together and although there’s now another little Groves in tow I wouldn’t have it any other way. You are the best husband and we made the best daughter. Love you to infinity and beyond @greeme

It’s been such a long time since I had a little Paperknots production line on the go so it’s very exciting to be assembling these lovely invites from our Riverside Story collection this morning. There’s definitely something ‘strokable’ about stationery all lined up right 🤷🏼‍♀️ 🖤
