Exciting News!!! Also a giveaway of first new products!

I was so excited about typing 'Exciting News' that I accidentally typed 'Exiting News' which wouldn't be right at all, quite the opposite in fact! I'm pleased to announce that evajeanie are expanding our product range.

We have invested in a new fancy piece of machinery which will help business grow and take a slightly new direction. Don't worry all the lovely bunting and bags will still be available but we really want to incorporate more graphics and illustration work into the brand. There's been a lot going on behind the scenes over the Summer and are we almost ready to launch a new range of designs and products.

The new machinery will allow us to show of our new designs on beautiful little pocket mirrors, badges and clips (for children), keyrings and bottle openers and here it is...

it's a proper heavy duty piece of machinery with a super smooth circular cutter.

This is the cutter...

I love things with handles and levers, I am quite cheered by the bright red knob on the end of this handle!

The assembler itself has got all sorts of springs and slidy things, is it wrong that I'm excited about a chunky bit of metal?

It have a lovely action, obviously sophisticated engineering, that is robust and built to last! Yes it is made in Britain, just down the road in Stamford!

We only received the machine yesterday but we were keen to get cracking and share some of our new designs so have already made a few products (I was so excited and have been planning this for months).

These are the first two products, they are part of the new 'Wild' range, of which there will be available on notebooks, cards, bags and cushions, as well as mirrors and keyrings.

The hedgehog is based on our own hand illustrations that we have redrawn on the mac for production.

The other mirror is a grey chevron, both will be available to buy soon with our other products but these two are available now for you to win. All you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment, it's as easy as that!!!

Good luck!

The winner will be announced on Thursday 26th September 2013.
