The third day of advent and we have a lovely Christmas post for you today brought to us by the lovely Alp and Ash. I am not sure about any of you lovely people but I have only bought about half of my gifts for this year and I am feeling a little un-organised. I see from my Facebook, Instagram, twitter feed that most people have bought and even wrapped their presents. I like to keep on the look out throughout December for all those quirky gadgets and gifts. I mush prefer Christmas shopping in December. I do however do most of it online, so when I discovered Alp and Ash I was over the moon!
I will hand the blog over to Debbie from Alp and Ash to tell you a more about their beautiful items……..
Like Kelly, I’ve been blogging about weddings for a few years now, but this past year I’ve really missed creating offline. Whether it’s stationery for friends’ weddings, creative cakes for birthdays, or crocheted Christmas presents I’ve realised I’m at my happiest when I’m making something.
I really wanted to turn this love of creating into a little business and that’s how Alp and Ash came about. Over the years I’ve learned a few illustrating skills on the computer; not wanting to put these to one side, and after a lot of deliberation, I decided to take the leap and invest in a laser cutter. I now have it set up in a workshop at the bottom of my mum’s garden and I love it! It allows me to design digitally but I can cut pieces from materials such as acrylic and wood and then hand finish and assemble them.
I launched of Alp & Ash just last week with some Christmas decorations and a product called Important Little Letters.
Acrylic and wood baubles, snowflakes and angels can all be found stocked in my little Etsy shop. The snowflakes and baubles come in sets of 3 or 6 and I also offer a personalised bauble which makes a lovely gift. There are lots of options available with my products too. You can choose from red or white acrylic, oak or walnut wood and pick red & white twine or natural string to hang them on the tree…
Even my cute little angels come with a choice of three different hairstyles and four different dress patterns…
Important Little Letters
I’ve also created a product that I hope will encourage the sending of snail mail. With social media being so huge nowadays it’s really rare to receive something in the mail from a friend, which I personally think is a bit of a shame. My Important Little Letters come with a small acrylic scene, a blank note for you to write your message and a tiny envelope all contained in a matchbox…
They’re really cute and there are lots of different designs as I’ve tried to cover most occasions. There are also three Festive Little Letter designs that would make an awesome alternative to a greetings card for someone special this Christmas…
I’ll be adding new products in the new year and have loads of ideas for future creations; I’d love for you to stop by the shop from time to time to see what I’m making.
I’m sure you will agree all these items are super cute! we just love them here at Boho, so much so that Kelly H had this personalised bauble made for baby Dexter, isn’t it just gorgeous!
