December Wallpapers

Hurray, I did it! Apart from a delay right at the start of this project, I completed all my monthly wallpapers on time (let’s not talk about how I am finishing these ones at 8pm on the 3oth). The final wallpapers feature my happy snowflake and some of you are lucky enough to have snow already. I’ve barely seen snow for the last couple of years so I’m hoping to get some this winter.

As always, I’ve made desktop wallpapers with or without a calendar, plus an iPhone/mobile wallpaper. These should fit most computers and smartphones. Download the December Wallpapers.

I’ll post again soon with some thoughts on this project and what I’ll be doing next year. I hope you’ve enjoyed my wallpapers this year!

I do a lot of my Christmas shopping on Black Friday. If you do too, and fancy picking up some of my products, then here’s all the offers I can find.

Black Friday 2015

At my own shop there’s 25% off almost everything (excludes diaries, cross stitch kits and stickers) with the code BLACKFRIDAY15. It starts NOW and ends at midday tomorrow, so you all have plenty time to shop.

Lucky Bags - available now in limited quantities!

You’ll also find new Lucky Bags, which cost a mere £5 and include £10-£20 worth of cute stationery, cards, brooches, badges and more.


At my other stores, there’s 15% off everything in my Etsy shop with the code BLACKFRIDAY2015, 20%-40% off selected products at Not on the High Street and 15% off at my DaWanda shop. No code required for the latter two and all 3 run through Monday.

2016 Calendar Magnets & Postcards

2016 Calendar Magnets - 5 A Day

Sorry for all the product posts this week – I haven’t had time to write any of the other posts I had planned. 2016 calendar magnets are finally in my shop for those of you who collect them. I only have a handful though so don’t miss your chance.

2016 calendar postcards

There are also postcards, which are handy for pinning to your noticeboard, sticking in your journal or sending to friends. They’re just £1 each and I’ll also be putting them in free with larger orders, while stocks last
