If you have been following on our Instagram you will know it is my first day back in the workshop for a while and I felt so ready for it! I designed these postcards as part of our rebrand and we send them out with our orders to share a little bit of Cornwall love with our Customers. I designed them with the tagline ‘Wood Paper Scissors, Inspired by the ocean’ those words have never felt truer than they do right now.
We’ve had the best Summer settling into our new home and town by the sea. We’ve spent every spare moment either on, in or watching the ocean and I am so grateful for the time I’ve been able to share with my family and friends at the beach this Summer. I arrived back at work today like a new person, with a sketchbook brimming with fresh ideas, feeling motivated and inspired by our time spent together by the ocean.
I know we are so lucky to be surrounded by such an awe-inspiring coastline and there is not a day that goes by when I don’t feel thankful to call this place home. A few years ago, like thousands of other holiday makers I would be saying goodbye to Cornwall for another year and returning to home in Northamptonshire feeling thoroughly disgruntled.
I still can’t quite believe we made that move, when I feel the warm sun and the cool clean September sea breeze I have to pinch myself that I’m still here, the holidaymakers have mostly returned ‘up country’ and unbelievably we are still here, in our cosy little cottage by the sea. Dreams really do come true!
