December News & Shopping Offers + November Favourites

Here’s a catch up on what’s new, plus shopping offers. November was so busy (and boring!) that I only shared salesy stuff on my blog and Instagram so I skipped my favourites post and included the only interesting section at the end.

News and reminders

  • Christmas is coming up fast and you need to order ASAP if you were hoping to receive items in time for gifting. Please check my Christmas shipping page before ordering.
  • I’m adding a free foil Snowflake sticker to most orders over £5 (or that leave a nice note!)
  • My shop will close for a Christmas holiday on December 16th and then I won’t ship again until January 4th 2021.
  • All 11 of my 2021 calendars are available on lots of products at Spoonflower, Society6, Redbubble, TeePublic & Zazzle. Check the bottom of this post for today’s offers and look out for more discounts.
  • I’ve created a handy page with all the information and links for buying or making face masks (for non-medical use) with my designs.
  • Join my Patreon from $1 to get exclusive content including weekly behind the scenes updates, exclusive downloads and more.
