Zazzle Christmas!

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat, etc etc. Except we don’t eat goose, we have turkey in my family! And actually for me the big thing in the approach to Christmas isn’t the chubbifying of any animals, it’s the gift buying.

In theory using the internet should make Christmas shopping so much easier. But it doesn’t, because two of the people I’m buying for are older children/young teenagers, one is eleven and the other is thirteen. What on earth do you buy a 13 year old girl? She has tons of make up, she got a load of fashion books for her birthday, she really doesn’t need any more clothes, I am tearing my hair out!!

And I know that plenty of you will be having this problem too so I asked the good sellers at Zazzle for a little help and inspiration!

Here today we have the shop of Funcards. It specialises in personalised gifts, from bookmarks to iPad cases, with original artwork and photography.

I love the colours on this folder. Perfect for the little writer in your household as a place to keep all their musings. And because it is customisable you can change the name from “Tamara” to that of the receiver, and you do not even need to keep the “poems” bit either! It can be artwork, homework, postcards, anything they do or collect!

More will be coming so stay tuned for more gift ideas!

Cor blimey!

I never thought I'd be making another "sold" post so soon! It's really lovely to wake up, check my email, and find that Zazzle notification :D Makes me dance around my room like a total nutter.

So my first sale notification was to tell me that someone had bought TEN of my latin phrase postcards! I am incredibly chuffed about this, as you can well imagine, including a Cicero one:

And then my second one was to tell me that someone really likes the ancient Egyptian god Anubis, because they bought three of these lovely hats!

So my November has been off to a cracking start! Thank you to my lovely buyers, I hope everyone enjoys their purchases!

Gooood morning everyone!

I have tea, I have toast with marmite, and I have CSI on my screen :D

I also have a sale! *Happy dance* It's actually my second sale in a week. Last week I sold this Plato <3 badge:

And then yesterday I woke up to discover that my latest line of Troy sports hoodies had also had a sale! Someone clearly likes Aeneas because they purchased this snazzy little number:

Zazzle has announced their Chrismas Order Deadlines so if you're planning on buying anything classics based for Christmas, make sure you get it in before the deadline! <3
