Roisin Grace - my first craft fair!

My first craft fair with the Artisans in the Palm House, Liverpool

A couple of weeks ago I had my first craft stall, selling a selection of my photo prints and greeting cards. The event was called the Artisans in the Palm House, and had been going on for three days. The Palm House, where I was located, is such a stunning building, and it was an honour to placed inside. I had a wonderful day meeting fellow makers and customers. This being my first time ever having a craft stall, I was super nervous! I had actually been preparing for it for some time, and with a couple of weeks to go I ended up making a ‘mock stall’ in my parent’s dining room, where I was able to play around with the display. All the things that I sold during the day, are available on my Etsy shop. I was very lucky to have my Mum by my side, and she was the perfect sub-team leader! When preparing for this craft stall, I must have spent in total, hours looking around Pinterest and found some great …

Today is the beginning of November, and you know what that means? The countdown to Christmas can officially begin! (Albeit still a wee bit early…) That’s right, there’s only 53 days till Christmas – and when you include all the days when you might be working, socialising, and those general c-b-a days, that doesn’t leave you very long for your christmas preparations. To make life a little bit easier I have designed and created my very own selection of hand-made Christmas cards that are now available to buy on my Etsy shop. You can get yourself a variety pack of 6 Christmas cards here, or perhaps just the one card for that someone special. Either way, these bespoke and original hand-made cards are the perfect way to wish loved ones a happy holiday. Check out all the cards here.  

hand painted bespoke original happy birthday greeting cards - on etsy

Limited Bespoke hand-painted greeting cards now on my Etsy Shop

For the last couple of weeks I have been doing a lot of painting, and I am pleased to announce that over on my Etsy shop you can now buy some one-off, unique, miniature works of art – my hand-painted greeting cards! I have made a dozen (and more) hand-made copies of the same design, and whilst I am in the process of reproducing them, I thought it would be a great idea to let you guys have the chance to buy your own and send them to your loved ones. I am an absolute stickler for handwritten letters and cards, and so I hope that people might enjoy sending and receiving my hand-painted greeting cards. Each card is individually hand-painted using watercolour and gouache paints, then hand mounted onto 5 x 7 ivory card. Below is a selection of the ones now currently available online, with more to come soon! Happy Birthday A selection of my Happy Birthday cards are available here on Etsy.

5 Ways to display Postcards at home

I seem to have an endless supply of Postcards. When ever I go travelling or to a Museum, I always end up buying what feels like thousands of postcards. However, the majority of them end up in a draw somewhere awaiting for me to find the time to take them and go through them. If this scenario sounds familiar, then fear not! As I have been going through the magical world of Pinterest to find the most creative and chic ways to display these souvenirs, and here are my top 5 favourite ways to showcase your postcard collection around your home!

Paris Photo Print Greeting Cards, Roisin Grace

Send some love with my new collection of greeting cards

New Greeting Card section here!  As you may already know from one of my previous posts, I have just opened up my very own Etsy shop full of photo prints from around Paris and beyond! And now, I have just launched my first collection of greeting cards! All the photos are professionally printed at premium quality, and then hand-mounted by myself onto cards. For those who know me, I am obsessed about all things stationary. But I also understand and appreciate the importance of a hand-written note. Whether it be a postcard to detail your travels, or a simple greeting card to say hello to a loved one – there’s nothing more special than sending or receiving a hand-written letter. Therefore, I hope that my cards will be of use to many of you out there, as I use them often myself. Writing a quick note to someone is so simple and effortless, yet this goes a long way to show people how much you value their friendship and love. So what are you waiting for!? …
