Let’s start with Fable & Black‘s fabulous collection of Japan-themed enamel pins, including my Mt Fuji. I’m feeling quite excited about going back to the Ghibli Museum now.

Cute Craft Club has been posting a few fun photos of my products so check out her account. I love this one with all my gift wrap patterns together. You also need to see this Little Ghost stamp video!

Angela ordered some of my new Ice Lollies gift wrap and tags from Zazzle recently. It’s always fun to see how these products look in real life and it looks nice and colourful.

My gift wrap sets come with everything you need for a cute parcel, as my mum shows here! Using the stickers on the envelope is a great idea.

And finally, More Than Fairy Cakes has been using my Seasonal Fruit & Vegetables charts to help with grocery shopping.

Seeing your photos honestly makes my day so please share yours with me – just tag @marcelinesmith on Instagram, share on my Facebook page, or leave a photo with your order feedback using the Etsy app.
