Last Chance For Halloween

It’s the last weekend to shop for Halloween and get these special offers.

Glow in the Dark Ghosts

Glow in the dark Ghost brooches are back, and they brought a friend! The big ghost now has a printed face to stand out better in the daytime. I took all these new photos and you can’t tell any difference but believe me, it looks a lot cuter.

The Trapped Ghost was a tricky file and got a bit rushed. I’m not totally happy with it so they’re available as an add on at a very reduced price. I added a cool spot gloss to the Ghost but really I should have cut it out so it would glow. I might try this again next year but that’s a long way away. These also look really fuzzy in photos but that’s only because they’re so small.

Halloween Offers

My Halloween Mystery Bags will disappear at the end of the month so don’t miss your chance to get a bargain bundle of spooky cute stationery including exclusive stickers.

If you buy 3 items from the Halloween collection before the 31st, you’ll get 25% off them all. That includes sale items too! No code required – it’s applied automatically at checkout. There’s a a free foil sticker with all orders too, until I run out.

Shipping & Delivery

I’ll be shipping orders on Monday & Thursday next week which should arrive in time for Halloween in the UK, but there are still some delays so I can’t promise it. All orders include free UK shipping and there’s affordable shipping worldwide.

You might spot something spooky cute in my Etsy shop too – more about that on Monday!
