I have been busy with Lyra’s Pawsome Books over the last couple of weeks. I have a Christmas stall next week to get ready for and of course I am busy making sure I have plenty of stock for my Etsy site. I know I am still in the very early stages of my little business but I am really enjoying thinking up ideas for products and putting them on my Etsy site.
I have started working on developing Christmas and Birthday cards which I hope to release in the next few days and I am finding the making of the cards and wrapping of the books quite therapeutic in an evening.
Anyway, here are the latest products on my Etsy site.
This book box was inspired by some of the things that I love at Christmas. I love curling up with a Christmas themed book and a mug of mulled wine near Christmas and perhaps some chocolate to snack on later. I also love a Christmas candle and hot chocolate in the evening.
– Brand new paperback book (genre of your choice) – Cat themed puzzle book – Dancing Cat pen holder – Bookmark – Dreamies (flavours vary) – Hot chocolate spoon – Tea bag – Coffee bag – Popcorn – Lotus biscuit – Border biscuits (flavours vary) – Cat shaped post it notes (colours vary) – Black biro
This book box was obviously inspired by Lyra. There are lots of cat themed goodies within this box including a bag of Dreamies for your feline friend. My personal favourite item is the Dancing Cat pen holder and I must admit I have had to stop my husband from pinching them for himself. A percentage of the proceeds from these box sales is also going to Lyra’s favourite charity which is Cats Protection.
Well blogging has not gone well over the last week. Basically I just haven’t had the energy to blog or even read much because of illness. I have been backwards and forwards to the doctors and even had to go to the doctors on my birthday which wasn’t brilliant, oh well, hopefully I am on the mend now.
Due to all the enforced resting I have at least been working on and doing some planning for my Etsy shop because I thought it was high time to get prepping for Christmas. I say my Etsy shop, it is meant to be Lyra’s but she is proving to be pretty useless when it comes to work.
So a little while ago I mentioned that I was planning a new bookish venture. Well, finally I have created an Etsy account and released my first two bookish products.
My bossy calico Lyra decided she wanted in on the act so she chose the name. Apart from the name and posing for some photos she has been very good at avoiding any of the actual work but she is so cute I have forgiven her. My husband has been very good and helped when Lyra has been missing.
So far I have a Mystery Book Box that includes a brand new paperback book of a genre of your choice and lots of treats to enjoy whilst reading your new book. Obviously I have sampled all these treats so I can confirm that they are very yummy. My husband highly recommends the hot chocolate.
The next product is a Mystery Book which is a brand new paperback book of a genre of your choice, with a beverage of your choice, some biscuits and a bookmark.
I am only delivering within the UK at the moment but I am hoping to despatch further a field eventually.
I have further products in the pipeline which I will update you all with next week.
Thank you for taking a look at my little start up.
