Happy Customer Photos – June, July & August

Time for a look at some more of your cute photos featuring my products. It’s getting harder to do these posts as most people share on Instagram Stories. That’s cool though – I still love seeing your pics wherever you post them.

If you’ve been wondering what my Happy Mail Trouble Club members have been getting, here’s a super cute photo from Kasia of her first package. They’ll generally be a mix of handmade things, items from my own stash and whatever random stuff I’ve found in the studio lately. You’re too late for the August delivery but join up any time this month to get the September box.

The Craftea Cafe put together these cool space-themed gift bags for her son’s teachers including my badges. I would be totally delighted with this.

Emma always has the most colourful outfits and this rainbow Ghost is looking forward to an outing soon.

A lovely colection of red enamel pins from Fable & Black including my Mt Fuji.

And finally, Becky of The Pink Samurai has expanded what is surely the cutest enamel pin collection in the world! I love it every time she shares a photo of this wall and always search for my Ghost and Fuji pins. Can you spot them?
