Anyone else feeling slumpy-and-grumpy this fine morning? 😴😡 The morning school run routine is getting pretty real (insane) now that we’re halfway into the term, and the work to-do-list is longer than the M6. 🛣
But heads up folks! (Wish it was on a pillow)
We march on! (I’ll try not to trip)
Coffee! Laptop! Lipstick! (Anything to distract from the eye bags)
A dose of positive mental attitude! (Cue creepy, try-hard grin)
Let’s smash Thursday! (Holds eyelids open)

Your genius brain plz!!!
I’m expanding the babies and family range of cards 🤰🏽🤱🏼🤰🏽🙌🏻 and seeing as you all crushed it with the ideas for ‘Nostalgia’... let’s unleash your creative minds yet once more!
Each card will be a stand alone image, in the middle of the card, that goes with a foiled caption like ‘New Baby’, ‘You’re Preggo’, ‘You’re Engaged’ and any other family and baby related events!
I have some solid ideas already... but there’s room for a few more, so comment below! It can be funny, lovely, ridiculous, serious, a bit weird - basically anything and everything that family life consists of 🤔
If I use your idea in a final design, i’ll tag you on the back of the card... ‘inspired by @you
’ 👍🏻😱- GO!

On the phone for dayz... 🤳🏻
Calling the warehouse where they pack and ship my cards, then stockists, then the warehouse again, then agent (woo!), then warehouse, then mum for a quick chat. 🙋🏻♀️
Just gotta get me one of these personalised phone cases from @casetify
to make these long calls more pretty. ❤️💜🌸📱
Plus my phone is cracked.
I appear to flail about in life in a way that regularly launches my phone into mid air, followed promptly by onto the concrete. 🤦🏻♀️ Send coordination aid.

Now I need to decide where to put my little piece of award glass! Downstairs loo? By the bed? Next to my primary school ballet certificate and 50m swimming badge from year 7? 🤓 Just kidding. (Sort of)
Either way it’ll be somewhere my kids’ sticky fingers can’t get to it, because I’m super proud of it!
Thank you @topdrawerlondon
and the panel at #paperawards
- a much treasured block of glass!
