and so back to the beginning ... ... ...

Mother Duck is taking Dizzy Ducks Creations back to its origins ~ handmade wedding stationery and special occasion stationery; this doesn't mean that she is giving up on all of the other items we make. Our handmade stationery has always been a bespoke service but it was one of the things that was shelved when ill health took over. Well, believe it or not Dizzy Ducks Creations (formerly Dizzy Ducks Cards & Crafts, for 6 years) is now 6 months old, and the time has come for us to be creative with paper crafting and return to our roots.

We will be doing our first (for a very long time) Wedding Fair in April ~ details TBC ~ so we need to create a fresh portfolio of designs that will give people a starting point for their own wedding stationery. How exciting save the date,invites,order of service/day, menu etc etc etc ~ fresh, clean and far from dog-earred samples ~ mind you samples do get weary so very quickly with handling.

We will be creating a special section on the website for wedding & special occasion stationery but we will be offering not only our bespoke service we will also create some 'off the shelf' packs of small numbers of wedding invites, special birthday invites (18, 21,40,50,60,70 etc etc), children's birthday invites, special anniversary invites. This will be quite a small selection to start with that will grow over the coming months.    

So March and April will be busy paper crafting months, bespoke stationery, off the shelf stationery and our greeting cards will return too! This will all seem very strange having spent so much time with the sewing machine!

Things have moved on since we started six years ago; we will be looking into more computer aided design elements as well as our beloved hand stamped, drawn and paper based designs. Mother Duck is unsure whether the idea of using computers is a good one or a bad one, as a technophobe she is going to have to grit her teeth and give it a go.

So should we move with the times and create more via the computer or stick with what we know?!?! Mother Duck worries that heading into the more computer aided items the bespoke element will lose some of the originality.

No matter how you craft, or what you craft have fun
love & quacks
Mother Duck

ps I would so love a stack of papers like this to play with ... ... ...
