Pretty PackagingThursday, October 13, 2011
Well my friends I spent a lovely afternoon cleaning charms on there way to Norway.... I LOVE packaging!!!! I love to make people feel like they are getting a present rather then an order :)...I love the simplicity of white crisp paper ( I am actually using some Australian 100% recycled at the moment - really lovely) or plain kraft... My colour palette is soft grey, brown, white, linen and black....
Kirstie is doing her first prac with toddlers and has nearly finished her first week and is just loving it...so nice to watch as a mummy.... She only has 2 weeks left of uni and then her first year is over....
“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
“You may tire of reality but you never tire of dreams.”
“There is such a place as fairyland - but only children can find the way to it. And they do not know that it is fairyland until they have grown so old that they forget the way. One bitter day, when they seek it and cannot find it, they realize what they have lost; and that is the tragedy of life. On that day the gates of Eden are shut behind them and the age of gold is over. Henceforth they must dwell in the common light of common day. Only a few, who remain children at heart, can ever find that fair, lost path again; and blessed are they above mortals. They, and only they, can bring us tidings from that dear country where we once sojourned and from which we must evermore be exiles. The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”
words from ― L.M. Montgomery (one of Kirstie's favourite authors)
