It’s very exciting but Jo and I will be exhibiting Playrama at the Spring Top Drawer 2015 Trade Show 11/13 January at Olympia in London. What is even more thrilling is that Freya is joining us with an exciting range of greetings cards, wraps and children’s sewing kits. If you are attending we would love to see you on stand Q44.
My latest printable Playrama is here! It’s Santa’s Workshop at the North Pole where everyone is busy making presents for Christmas. You can download the play set, print and cut it out to play with or use as a delightful Christmas decoration.
The set contains the following:
Santa (Of course!)
A decorated Christmas Tree
Rudy, Santa’s red nosed reindeer. (sister reindeer to the famous Rudolf who sadly is in bed this Christmas with a slight snuffle. Santa saw him sniffing and sneezing and thought he looked a bit peaky, so he suggested he have a nice hot honey and lemon and go to bed).Santa’s workshop. (The workshop is kept lovely and warm with the kettle on the stove ready for tea break. Santa’s little dog, Scooter, is fast asleep despite the banging and drilling noises of Santa’s hard at work helpers)
Lots of Helpers. (The Helpers are all busy packing presents and carrying them hither and thither, except that is for Peeps who is sitting on a bench. She got so excited about Christmas that Santa felt it was best if she took a few moments of rest, which is difficult because inky the cat wants a stroke.)
The set is very easy to cut out and represents fabulous Christmas value. If you were thinking you wish you had something unusual to send to distant relatives and friends this Christmas but were only confronted with the usual corporate tat, I reckon this Playrama is something special.
You can get it here
Have a great Christmas!
I’ve been working on new Playramas. Here’s a peep at Santa’s Workshop. We won’t have it ready for this Christmas (I know, but lead times are very long!) although I’m hopingt o get it up on my Etsy shop as a printable download in the next day or two.
If you are coming to the Living and Giving 2014 trade show we’d love to see you on our stand B541.
Here I am with our stand at the Taunton Rural Living Show last weekend. The photo doesn’t do it justice as our stand really looked fab and we sold loads of Playramas with the Fairies being the top seller, a West Country thing I guess.
I’ve also had reports that Playrama is now in the windows of Jojo Mamon Bebe as part of the their Christmas display in 68 branches up and down the land. I haven’t got a photo, but if you see it please send me a snap. If you are doing your Christmas shopping in London call in at Pollocks Toy Shop in Covent Garden where you’ll find lots of Playramas for sale.
There is still time to order Playramas and our other products in time for last day posting and Christmas from our website. They simply are gorgeous gifts!Shop Now
Just so you know (and if I put it up here it reminds me too!)
UK Royal Mail final posting dates.
2nd Class – 18th
1st Class – 20th
If you are thinking of sending Playrama, which make a delightful, cheap to post, more than a card, special gift, you should order them soon so you have good time to send them out before those final posting dates!
Phew! I’ve just finished designing a Playrama poster to go into shops. Many thanks to Paul Leyland for his photo. I never realised but getting the right photos of children is fantastically difficult. Of hundreds shot just one or two really work where the subject is properly lit, has just the right expression, posture and all looks genuine, rather than staged. It’s all so much more than just pressing the shutter button. I take my hat off to photographers the world over!
It’s thinking about Christmas card sending time. Gulp! Send your rellies and friends a card they’ll keep and get some festive fun from. I’ve started putting together multipacks of our products with stunning savings of 20% on 10 packs. Awesome value!

Terrifying!This is what has confronted Jo and I as we pack ready for the Christmas rush – armies of the cutest, cuddly-wuddly flwuffy kitties.
These little stand up fellas come in a pack of 5 with a stand and envelope. Aww. They’re all the rage! What a lovely novel alternative they make to the usual boring old folded Christmas card with a dab of glitter.
You see armies now, but hurry over to the Playrama website and grab some for yourself, because they’ll go quickly!
