parties and gift wrapping...

We've had countless children's birthday parties over June, and aside from watching all the excited little faces and eating lots of cake, we have to admit that of course, our favourite part of any birthday is wrapping the presents! We love the creative potential of seeing the paper, tape, string and tags all come together and become an extension of the present itself!  Of course, it is typically ripped open in less than 30 seconds but that's not the point :-)

(Sorry about the amateur pictures, but that is another reality of children's birthdays - you snap when you can!).

the power of words...

There are a trillion quotes out there in the world and yet only a few will be able to connect with how you are feeling on a certain day.  Here are a few jumping out at us tonight...

We're still working on creating our own pinboards, but we will make sure they are worth the wait x

absenteeism & some giveaways...

We're so sorry for being absent from this blog over the past few weeks! Day to day life, plus sick children, a space birthday party and family visitors have all contributed to the neglect. 

To make it up to you, we are being extra generous this month and are part of a number of giveaways and bargains!

Firstly, we are part of the upcoming OHbaby Ultimate Competition 2011, which launches on July 1st.  We are contributing a $100 voucher to the overall prize package, which will allow the lucky winner to choose their own range of gorgeous paper and stationery gifts! Make sure you keep an eye out on the OHbaby website to be in to win.

We are also offering a free gift with every purchase made in June for likers of Babybites - all you need to do is write babybites in the comments section when you order to receive a little surprise.

And we are giving away a suite of MT tape through our new friends at Fancy - New Zealand's coolest design blog.  You will also receive a free spool to hold your tapes, and a cute little information booklet giving you lots of ideas of how to use mt.  Be in to win simply by joining our mailing list, or becoming a liker of ours on facebook. 

Exciting - make sure you don't miss out :-)

Plus, in case you didn't already know, we are now stocking a range of our cards and invitations in the boutique childrenswear store, Peppin, located on Jervois Road, Herne Bay Auckland, so if you are in the area, pop in and have a look.

have a good rest of the week x
