I've got my shopkeeper hat on today, and I wanted to share some lovely new products with you today, as well as some early news of what’s coming soon …
Designed to fit in a project bag or a plastic wallets within an organiser, there are two colourful new mini notebooks available in the shop. While the mini ‘Out + About’ notebooks are designed to take to yarn events and woolly shopping trips, with lots of designated sections for shopping list and pattern ideas, the new additions are packed full of free form pages to write notes in. They have plenty of joyful colour and patterns to guide your musings, but that aside, they are a blank canvas for your own scribbles and notes. They are really compact (A6 size) and I keep one in each of my WIP project bags to jot down my hook size, where I’ve got to within the pattern, and any adjustments I've made. It’s also where I scribble down any pattern recommendations from friends that I want to look up later or add to my ‘to make’ list.
One item I’ve used regularly over recent years is a weekly planner pad, where I write my ‘to do’ items for the weekahead. I’ve pulled together the features I’ve found most useful amongst the different versions I’ve used, and have created two different colourful A4 planner pads. They are perfect for noting down everything you need to remember, from appointments to essential actions and reminders. I use mine to cover work, home, school and business planning – they work perfectly for anything that needs a little organising! I like to time box my priority items so that I set aside the necessary time to devote to these. And as you complete a week, you can tear off the used page from the pad and start the new week with beautifully fresh sheet of paper.
In other exciting shop news – coming very soon are some beautiful pen elastics in some of the most popular colours which have been sold out for some time now: turquoise, white and teal. There are also some lovely new colour options: light turquoise, bright pink and navy, which as usual have been chosen to complement the colours of the organiser. Next to follow will be some gorgeous new handbound organiser colours and textures, along a similar colour palette – think turquoise, teals and greys. I hope you’ll love them! I’ll let you know once I’ve taken photos and added them to the website.
As always, do let me know if there’s anything else you’d find useful in your organiser or as an addition. Later in the year and following numerous requests, I’m planning to work on a printable version of the organiser top ups for those of you that are further afield, given how costly postage is at the moment. And please do let me know what you think of these new additions!
