C is for Canva

Oh how the universe saves us from ourselves..... I wrote a massive rant on how tough having an online business is and how an application like Canva is a saving grace without (i don't think) disrupting the graphic designing industry.  It's allowing little shoppe's like ours create some really basic graphic work without needing to fork out lots of cash or understanding how to use complex software. And there was a fair bit of other text on the trials and tribulations....

BUT - internet dropped out and my pages of crazy were lost 'on the line'. Clearly divine intervention....

If you haven't heard of Canva, get informed. If I can use it, anyone can. Copy for facebook, instagram and any other social media platform. Content for newsletters or blogs. I've just spent the evening using custom dimensions to make some slideshow images as seen here for Brown Button Trading. Just quietly, lots of fun because we have the best stuff available this #bbtsummer.  Happy days fellow online business peeps xox

Make yourself at home.... With Kate Spade.... our BFF, right?

As if Kate Spade wasn't killing it in the clothing, shoes, accessories and gifts department, they go and do this. Kate Spade Home. Make yourself at home? Don't mind if I do.... Damn the Aussie dollar and their lack of shipping overseas (I've already wasted too much hot air on this)

We carry a gorgeous range of Kate Spade via our online store, but imagine having this beauty that is there ' home decor range' available in Australia (actually no, thats good i barely make it from pay cheque to pay cheque as it is...) - Right Kate, this is a good thing???

And to top it off, they use the best furry props you could get (short of chuck bass. of course.. right?!) - that be a cute minature schnauzer. Andie? I'd call Kate Spade direct, tell them Emmy is ready for the Australian release of all things Kate Spade Home  (and arrange a contract that will ensure we can all afford rooms o Kate Spade Home Decor) xx
