some August media lovin…

We have been very lucky this last month with products being featured in all sorts of different magazines and blogs. We thought we might share our August media love with you here on our blog.

Not only was our newly launched Geometric Orange LUX Panama Cushion chosen as one of 100 Beautiful Things in association with Visi at 100% Design, it was also selected as part of The 100% Design Edit in the Sunday Times Home Weekly section.

House & leisure magazine think our quirky Shweshwe Shields in Pink tea towel is a great way to introduce pattern into your kitchen. We couldn’t agree more!

Living and Loving magazine looked at choosing which colours will work best for your nursey and decided our Orange Squares cushion cover would be a perfect match.  “While red is a fiery, volatile and energetic colour that should only be used as an accent colour in small amounts in a nursery, orange offers a similar look that’s friendly, welcoming and vibrant.”

To the happiest of new years…

I can’t believe that it’s already January again : ) Its 2014 this time, and I have a very good feeling that this year is going be awesome. There are so many exciting things already on the cards…Cape Town is deservedly the World Design Capital 2014 (which means there will be lots of fun to be had and beautiful things to look at in the mother city), Handmade By Me has some new product and design ideas in the pipeline (plus I am going to start painting again which I cannot wait to do), some of my best friends are finally moving back home to this beautiful city, some of my best friends are getting married, beautiful babies are on their way, and most importantly I am getting married to the love of my life and I can’t wait!!!

There is a lot to be excited for this year!

And with that I wish you all a fantastically happy and healthy year ahead!

To mark the first Handmade By Me blogpost of 2014, I thought I would leave you with this little article I discovered by surprise in the latest issue of Ideas magazine. It’s an article all about blogs, and my little Handmade By Me blog which I started right in the beginning, before I even had products to show you so I filled it with soup recipes, has been featured alongside some great local well known and established blogs. I am honoured!
