Life, work and some luxury party invitations

This week has been a bit of a strange one — mixed blessings, if you like.

It started badly. Monday saw an awful turn of events for a much loved family member. I am not going to say anything more, apart from it was a sad day and there were not many smiles in our house, that day.

Tuesday was better. 

One of my bests (one the Twinkles ‘guidemothers‘) popped in — totally unannounced — for a coffee.

I love village life and one of my favourite things is people banging on the door/window (often at really inconvenient moments!) and stopping in for a chat and a cuppa.

And that is written with no sarcasm, I genuinely do love it!

Luxury Party Invitations

Wednesday gave me one of the best testimonials I’ve ever had from a customer, since I set up Mooks Design, back in 2008!

I had been commissioned to create some luxury party invitations for a client’s daughter’s 18th birthday party.

Quite possibly the poshest party invitations I’ve ever seen; or made — and the feedback I received was glowing.

Here are a few pics:

She’s asked for a pocketfold personalised party invitation; which included a reply card and info card. But she also wanted each invitation wrapped in tissue paper in a box.

I’m used to creating luxury personalised birthday invitations but these were on another level!

It took a lot of work to put them together, but the feedback was so good. Makes all the hard work so worth it.

And… Relax

Thursday: Pilates Day!

Thursdays are generally always good as I have an hour to myself each week!

I love being a wife, a mother, a business owner, but to have a dedicated hour that is just for me — on a weekly basis — is priceless; and much needed!

We had another village friend pop in (unannounced) for a coffee, after school; and I also celebrated my blog’s 2nd birthday!

Today is quiet.

The sky is grey (it’s almost dark outside!) and we don’t have much planned at all. I’m supposed to be working — and trying to get my work website up and running — but Twitter has been a glorious distraction this morning and, as a result, I’m writing this blog post!

The babies are currently napping and this afternoon I know I’m going to have two grumpy little men to entertain as the weather is so wet and horrible.

  1. ‘Mixed’ sounds about right! That stationery looks beautiful, and so nice to receive positive feedback on a project you’ve worked so hard on. Pleased that Twitter kept you entertained today and you found us, so lovely to have you joining in :) Now, I have to go off and face this terrible weather on the school run…! #WotW x

  2. Thanks lovely! I am SO pleased with the stationery — it really is lovely to receive such fantastic feedback from a client. I worked so hard to get everything just right so it’s really great to have all the effort rewarded. A few positive ‘words’ is all I need! Which brings me to the linky! I LOVE it and shall definitely be joining in again! X

  3. Thanks Kim! It was a strange week – full of highs and lows. The fabuolous feedback on the invites was definitely a highlight! Along with my blog turning two! Will come and wish you ‘happy birthday!’ in a couple of weeks!
