I am so lucky to have an amazing mum, and I sure do appreciate it!
Living a couple of hundred miles away from my family is tough at times, and with being so busy the last few months I really feel like I owe my mum a great big treat or two, which I am working on (hello Mum if you're reading!)
From doing markets this weekend, I've sold really rather a lot of Mother's day cards. The most popular one without a shadow of a doubt has been any with the words "Mum, you're bloody brilliant" on - which clearly means we are mostly big fans of our mums.
I know that some folk don't have their mum's around any more, or maybe were closer to another relative growing up, so I've been sure to add cards with wording saying "To a Special Lady" on cards too, so as not to alienate any potential customers. I try and cover all bases, and if I don't, then I'm always happy to take commissions!
So, I've been thinking about Mother's day gifts... there are a few things in the Oh Squirrel range which I think may just do the trick so here are some suggestions:
Printed Fabric Embroidery Hoops - £15
If you would like to commission one of these with a photograph or wording of your chose then this can be done also - I will be launching this as a new product offer shortly! Any Bespoke Mother's day orders will need to be received by 5pm Wednesday 6th March, to be sent out first class recorded delivery before Friday 8th.
Fabric Mirror & Case Sets £4
Pick a mirror, pick a case - et voila! More designs in range, please email if interested.
Old Photograph / Vintage Fabric Lavender Bags - £5
One side printed old photograph, the other side vintage fabric - stuffed with lovely lavander to make your knicker drawer smell like a dream (good for fighting off the pesky moths too)
Notelet Sets £3.95
All one offs. Please let me know which of the styles you'd like:
Fabric Thank You
Fabric Mounted Stamps
Mum Fabric Tags £2
If you've treated your mum to a present already and are just looking for a way to wrap, then these are a lovely way of finishing off a gift.
Vintage Fabric Tote Bags - £12 (the artwork in the photograph, I cannot take credit for!!)
I am going to do a bit of an offer, and if you spend £10 on gifts from the above selection, then you can have a FREE CARD! This offer is exclusive for online orders made based on this blog post.
Cards illustrated are similar to those available, please let me know which of the wording selections you would like and I will send options accordingly (as y'know...everything is bespoke and a one off!)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to place an order. Because of the bespoke nature of Oh Squirrel it may be the exact item featured isn't available but I will always send you photographs of any substitiutions for you to choose from.
Prices don't include P&P, please specify if you're happy to send just first class or would refer recorded and I'll quote accordingly. Packaging itself is free, it's just the stamps I charge for! I'm happy to gift wrap also, because I do love my customers!
