Celebrate Good Times – Come On!

The last two months since the launch of Stationery Box have been massive here at Under the Rowan Trees. Earlier in the week, we celebrated achieving 1,000 sales in my Etsy shop and today we are celebrating the second anniversary of this website.

The first part of Sensational September has started already over on Facebook.  All you need to do to win a Luxury Mystery Box worth £25 is visit Under the Rowan Trees and Rowan Trees Supplies and like and comment on the pinned posts. Make sure you like the pages so you will see if you win and feel free to tag friends and share far and wide!

A winner will be drawn on Friday 15th of September and announced on both pages. You’ve got to be in it to win it!

Make sure you sign up for September’s Stationery Box.  Everyone who signs up and pays by the 12th of September will get an extra little gift in their box!

I met Justine through an online craft group and fell in love with her style. Her art work is just amazing and so diverse as you can see by the few examples I’ve selected to share. It was only later that I learnt that she was a cancer survivor and an amazingly strong woman.

Recently, Justine organised a charity auction in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. I was more that happy to donate a prize to this amazing cause and have to confess to bidding on a few items myself! The auction was a huge success and we were able to help Justine to smash her £500 fundraising target.

Justine’s Just Giving Page is still live here if you would like to donate and she is selling prints of the amazing Make A Wish on her facebook page with £5 from each sale going to charity.

Look out for Justine’s work (and mine!) in the Handcrafted Uniquely Community – perfect for gift shopping!

You can find JakeArt1 on EtsyFacebook and her own website. Do pop over and say hello and tell her I sent you!

Photography Challenge!

As part of my 30 day challenge I’ve been working on my photography and editing skills. Still very basic but I think I’ve made huge progress. Here is one of my first attempts:20150726_135351And here are some I took today. Hopefully you’ll agree that there is a huge improvement!

I used PicMonkey which has lots of features which are free and is quite straightforward to use after a little play around.

These items are all now available to purchase from my etsy shop: Under the Rowan Trees
