June Review

As the year goes by I’m sure the months are passing faster - I can’t believe it is July already!  I spent a lot of June working on an exciting project which I was hoping I would be able to share with you by now, but unfortunately you will have to wait a little longer to find out what I have been up to.  Working on secret projects is one of the reasons why I failed to blog during June, but I have been planning more posts for the next few weeks.  Although I can’t show you everything I have been doing, here are some of the things I can tell you about…

New designs…
The summer weather and thoughts of picnics outside inspired the beginnings of a new collection of printables; so far I have created a set of scrapbooking papers, invitation and set of straw flags.  You can see the ‘Summer Garden’ collection in my shop here.

I have added some new printable recipe cards to my Rule Britannia collection, the set contains 2 designs (one with a corgi and the other with a crown) plus a design with extra lines for printing on the backs.  They’re the first recipe cards I have designed but I am sure I will be making some more soon.  What do you think of them – are recipe cards something you like to use?

Social Media
I’m determined to learn how to use social media better, I think my main problem is I get stuck for something to say and end up being so inconsistent.  Goal 1 is to update things more regularly!  I’ve been pinning useful tips and articles to this board on Pinterest.  I have also been working my way through my Pinterest boards; updating cover photos, pinning new things and checking that all my boards have proper titles / descriptions.  Do you have any business tips for using social media?  Or just personally, what are your favourite social media sites? What do you like to see on them?

It’s a fairly short review this month, so I’ll end it with 5 of my favourite things from June
  • Strawberries picked from the garden (over 1kg so far and the biggest was 30g!)

  • Blue skies and long hours of daylight
  • Picking fresh herbs like basil which I have grown to use in salads and cooking
  • Planting marigolds in my garden - I love the smell of marigolds too.  Is that weird? I hear lots of people hate the smell!
  • Seeing adorable baby birds – like this family of partridges...
