Well, it’s been a busy few weeks, keeping on top of Christmas orders and preparing designs and products for the seasons ahead. It has to be the busiest time of my work calendar.

Next week, 3 huge parcels are leaving Fay’s Studio HQ and making their way to Paperchase for the busy Valentine’s season. I have hand-finished almost 3,000 cards for Paperchase stores, which has been a fairly long process, but I’ve really enjoyed it. Eventually it would be a good idea to outsource hand-finishers to free up more time for me to be in the studio designing, however I am a self-confessed control freak when it comes to my products, each one has to be just right to pass my standards, well, you wouldn’t expect anything else. I cannot wait to visit Paperchase stores and see them sitting together on the shelves, the butterflies I get seeing my creations in store is the best feeling, I am lucky to have such wonderful customers!

Here I am just a short way through the hundreds of cards I had to hand-finish with wobbly eyes.

8 designs from my Henries Award nominated ‘Sweet Tooth’ card range will be available in Paperchase stores from January.

If you would like to place a trade order for these, please get in touch for further price/product information (mail@faystudio.com) or you can buy them singularly from my Not on the High Street shop.
