and off we go...

Well our first week of business for the year has been busy! Customer orders, stock orders, brainstorming about an exciting project that we have coming up, and catching up on some boring admin tasks like accounts and stocktake!

We both stripped our corkboards over the weekend, and have started revamping them in 2012 creativity and spirit.  You have to love a blank canvas and the opportunity to add colour, pictures and inspiration to match your current goals and focus.  And the beauty of a cord board is that you can change it as many times as you like!

Here are the start of ours...

And we stumbled upon these wise words from Emerson on the ever lovely Spoonful website, and felt compelled to share them with you!  We definitely need to print this off and stick it to our inspiration boards or the inside cover of our super fabulous Frankie diaries so we can read it every day!

Apologies that our products are a little low following the Christmas craziness but we promise we will be restocking both old and new very soon!  We'll be attending Life Instyle in Sydney again next month so we'll be sharing new ranges and designers as they land on our doorstep.

If you're looking for some inspiration or happy reading, make sure you get your hands on a copy of Spoonful Issue 6 - it is something special.

hope you all had a nice weekend x

happy 2012...

Happy New Year everyone! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and start to 2012.  It feels like we are a little late, but having taken an extended holiday since Christmas, we are only back to business today.  Yippee - it was lovely to have a nice, relaxing break and to think about the coming year for presse-papiers and this blog.

There's something about the beginning of a new year that ignites feelings of hope and imagination for all that lies ahead, and perhaps for all that may be possible. Although that might just be the effect of too much sun and wine over the festive period as well ;-). But in all honestly, we are envisioning lots of exciting things for us this year, including:

* a real focus on DIY and crafty talent
* a broadening of this blog to connect with other like-minded folk , and as always
* we want presse-papiers to represent and stock all the gorgeous paper product and supplies that we as thirty-something year old women and mums use in our daily lives! Simple, yet unique and beautiful paper and stationery products to pretty our homes, offices and lives.

So a few minor tweaks and changes to look forward to over the coming months.
