MeiFlower featured in Prima magazine

January 10th, 2012

Hello Everyone,

Got some exciting news to share with you today.

Sue McNeill, Prima’s deputy editor has featured MeiFlower on page 129 in the February edition of Prima magazine. Here’s what Sue had to say.

On a recent visit to a craft fair in Birmingham, I came across a store selling gorgeous ribbons. I always add a pretty ribbon to cards, gifts and flowers – it’s just a way of adding a luxurious touch without spending too much money.
So I was pleased to discover that the whole selection can be found online at www.meiflower.co.uk. With prices from 50p for 2m, the ribbons cost a fraction of the price you’d pay in a fancy store.

Just goes to show you never know who might end up buying from you ! Thanks Sue for featuring us in the magazine and i’m glad you liked the ribbons.

MeiFlower 25% Off SaleHi Everyone,

Happy new year to you all, hope you all had a great Christmas and a relaxing holiday…. I know i did, lol.  I even managed to sneak in a little bit of crafting.

A group of us went shopping and I was one of the first who was up and ready on Boxing day (ready to go with my left-over turkey sandwiches) for the January sales. I think i may have even been one of the first to get through the doors, I love my cheap bargains and I’m sure many of you do too.

However i was MAJORLY disappointed, the sales were definitely not that great this year and now looking at my shopping list that’s been stuck on the fridge door for months . . . I didn’t even manage to buy a single thing on it! Seriously not happy.

Anyway this got me thinking about what kind of sale to offer on my website. Should I put on sale craft supplies which are not selling, out of date, or just so last year . . . I think not. I’m going to do 25% OFF everything in store!
That’s right, no small print just nice and simple anything and everything online is 25% off.

So to end first of all THANK YOU everybody for taking time to read and comment on my blog, I really appreciate it. Secondly enjoy your bargains and Happy Shopping & I will catch up with you all soon.

Tinsel Like Glitter

Hi Everyone

Just thought I share my Christmas card with. Not had much time this year to make all my friends and family a Christmas card, managed to make a few.

Christmas tree stamp embossed with silver embossing powder

My Christmas card design for my family

I have used a Christmas Tree stamp from Dimension Stamps, Christmas paper I had in my stash. A piece of cerise grosgrain ribbon. I have used double sided tape on the top and bottom edge of the card, sprinkled tinsel effect glitter which I bought from Glitter Magic at the Craft show at the NEC.

Stamp embossed with silver embossing powder.

Silver tree finished off with pink gems

I love this Christmas Tree stamp, I think it is quite a timeless design which I would use again and again. I have embossed the tree with silver embossing powder to give a more of a contemporary feel.  I have finished off the card with self adhesive pink gems and a cerise pink gingham bow.
