Covering Scotland

I'm quite proud of this. I was intending to update the list of stockists on our website, which meant laboriously typing out each name and address - and there are rather a lot now - when I thought I could maybe make a map showing where they all are.
Google's great. One quick question how I could do it, and there it was. Very easy.
Not only do I have all the shops, galleries and garden centres which stock our cards on the map but you can click on them to see their address, opening hours, website etc. Very clever Google.
This pic is just a screen shot. If you want the interactive map just click here
Have a go and see if there is a stockist near you. ( Sorry if you are in England, no shops there yet. On the other hand if you are in San Francisco, Toronto or Vancouver then you're in luck! Contact me for details!)

Post Valentine's Day

Good morning from sunny Fife. Phew! That's all I can say. Since the beginning of the year we've been drowning in a sea of tartan hearts - tiny ones, middle sized, long ones, fat ones - most, thankfully, cut out for us by our laser cutter and all destined to grace the front of our Valentine cards.
We wore out one ink jet printer and used up all our red fabric paint.
Scottish Valentine cards found their way to US Canada Australia Finland Ireland to name but a few and my late nights stretched to a record breaking 3.45am.
But that's it for another year. I hope we managed to add to the romantic Scots and expats' valentine experience!
As for us - a posh meal(at home), nice bottle of wine, decadent pud, box of chocs and a set of bellows comprised our Valentine's evening. Whoa - what? Bellows? Don't ask....
So now our sights are set on Mother's Day. It's early this year, March 10th so better get on.
