Catching up!

I can't believe I haven't updated the blog or posted anything since May 2014! It's been a crazy summer, so here's a very quick catch up with everything that's been going on with us...

We changed our name! Ok, well it wasn't a huge change, we went from Arbee Cards to arbee* stationery & design. We felt we'd moved on so much from just doing cards, and it was time to update our logo, our name, and make everything fresh, which brings me to...

We've got a lovely new logo! Ok, again this isn't really new, but it's something that I've just updated on the blog. See that new header above, it's only just up when I'm typing this. The old Arbee Cards' luggage tag is gone and our gorgeous new apple green circle is now pride of place.

We've got a beautiful new website! We just love it and hope you will too.

We had our busiest summer wedding season yet! So many lovely weddings & we even got to be a wedding guest to celebrate with our lovely friends :))

We've got lots of new products! We've been busy developing new lines and ranges of our stationery and gifts. We're full of inspiration and so far have created mugs, bone china, fridge magnets, prints, personalised prints and...

We've got a lovely new online shop! We opened our Not On The High Street shop in March 2014 and it's been fantastic so far. If you haven't already dropped by for a nosy, go have a look! The link is just over there --->

We've been building our stockist list! We've got some fantastic new stockists selling our wares - including the Ulster Museum in Belfast, the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum in Holywood (where Rory McIlroy comes from) and our newest stockist is Cairn Bay Lodge in Bangor, Co. Down. Don't forget our fantastic main stockist the Visit Belfast Centre right opposite the City Hall in Belfast!

We've started some fairs! We joined a collective of other designer-makers, vintage sellers and crafters and in September 2014, we started a series of fairs under the name 'The Eclectic Emporium'.
See our diary page for our Belfast dates in October & November!

That's all for now! Well, we think that's enough for now, but I'll be back soon for more crafty chatter.
