Happy Easter!

from dots and spots

I'm having a couple of days off to rest & re-charge and spend time with my family, by the sea - looking for more inspiration.
Whatever you're up to this Easter Weekend, I hope you have a great one.

Its on its way!

I've approved the proofs and the printing presses have whirred into action, creating my latest, brand new product and I wanted to share the news - and some of the designs - with my lovely blog readers first!

I've created a range of beautiful decorative sticky tape that will add the perfect finishing touch to so many projects!

There are eight fresh new designs, and you can see five of them below. The designs come in a range of colours and I hope you'll find the tapes a 'must have' accessory for your stationery or crafting drawer!

The tapes will be available from my website within the next few weeks, once I've taken delivery of the first batch.

The Great Easter Egg Hunt ... Part 2

Tomorrow - Wednesday 24th March - (or today, perhaps, depending on when you are reading this!) is our turn to host the cheeky egg on our website.

Head over to and see if you can spot the little blue fella lurking somewhere on the site.

When you've found him, hop over to to find out how to submit your entry (and if you can't find him, then still visit for an extra clue or two!)

The day's winner will receive a pack of 12 dots and spots cards so you'll always have the perfect card ready for any occasion.

Happy Hunting

One, Two, Twit Twoo ...

At last I've been able to find some quality design time and I've had the chance to create this great new children's poster.

A3 in size - making it a perfect fit for an IKEA Ribba frames - I think this poster will look great in any child's bed room or play room and they will be available from our website in the next few weeks.

I think I've fallen in love with these owls - so look out for more products in the range to come soon.

The Great Easter Egg Hunt!

Who said Easter Egg hunts were only for children?

Not us - we love the thrill of the hunt and the excitement of finding an Easter treat as much as anyone and we're really excited to be taking part in The Great Easter Egg Hunt .

Every day between now and Easter this cheeky little chap:

will be appearing - but hiding - on a different website every day.

If you can find him, then you could be the lucky winner of a great prize. One day he'll visit the dots and spots website - a day to fly the flags!

For more details of how to enter and find which website he's visiting today, head on over to The Great Easter Egg Hunt

And if you want a daily update of his location and clues to his whereabouts, why not follow me on Twitter and become a Facebook Fan

Join in the fun and who knows, you may be celebrating Easter with a great giveaway goodie!

Many thanks to The Children's Jewellery Company for organising this fun event!

Happy Mothers Day!

What a lucky Mummy I am!

Lavished with love, flowers and gifts, my 'two' have made my day extra special, even agreeing not to bicker with each other for the whole day!

Flush with flowers, I was also lucky enough to receive some gorgeous hand made bunting - made by the oh so talented Moobaacluck - and I thought hubby had missed all those hints I kept dropping!

To all those fellow Mum's out there - I hope that you, too, have had a special day today. I am truly blessed.

Busy, busy busy, but its the best way to be!

Our Favourite Shop ...

... Part 3!

Continuing our infrequent series featuring our favourite shops, those little (often hidden) gems that make shopping fun, I just had to tell you about 'Lexi Loves ...' in Cirencester.

I first met Lexi on Twitter and then was delighted to have the chance to meet up with her in person at the 'Top Drawer' exhibition in London earlier this year, when she was scouting for new, beautiful and original gifts and goods that adorn her lovely shop.

So, if your ever in the Cotswold's - and The Cotswold's in the Spring are well worth a visit - make sure you pop in to Lexi Loves ... I'm sure you'll love what she does! But don't just take our word for it, Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen recently described it as one of his favourite shops.

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells ...!

Christmas in March?

Well it has been in dots and spots HQ, designing the cards that will (hopefully!) be landing on doormats across the country in December.

So here's hoping that the weather becomes a little less December like and here's a sneak preview of the dots and spots Christmas card range, 2010 (and, as an extra bonus for all my lovely blog readers, a peak at a mystery new product that's in development!)

Ho, ho, ho!

Merry Christmas Spring!
