dusk Bridal Fair 2012 – 10-11 March {appearances}

16 Feb

I’m gearing up for the dusk Bridal Fair 2012 at the moment. (Actually it would be fair to say I’m struggling to find my mojo at the moment, but I’m trying hard!). I’m at the same booth as last year (43) and really looking forward to it. The dusk Bridal Fair always feels less frantic to me than some of the others and that’s great because it gives me time to really chat to the visitors which, of course, is the reason I exhibit there in the first place!

I Spy Photo Game {Wedding | Party | Printable Freebie}

7 Feb

My WordPress analytics for 2011 showed that this post received more hits than any other of my posts last year, so I decided it was time for a follow up!

Let’s start with a basic Google search here. What an incredible number of styles and wording there are around!

I still think that this game is a great ice breaker and gives the kids something to do at a wedding. It would also make a great activity for those big special occasion parties – you know the ones: wedding anniversaries, special age parties, etc. Just change the words around or write your own rhyme (I’m absolutely no good at that!) and you’re good to go.

As a special thank you for taking the time to read my post I’ve decided to give away a printable I Spy. I found this rhyme on an image in the Google search, but unfortunately I am unable to find the original source so if these are your words please let me know so that I can credit you properly!

2012 New Ranges – Kids Party Invites & Accessories, New Wedding Stationery and Palm Wax Melts

11 Jan

Hello, and welcome to Just Jane in 2012!

For some time now I’ve had some printable kids party invites and accessories available in my store, but I thought I’d try my hand at printing some myself and seeing how people like them. I have printed out a couple of ‘fill-in’ invitation sets and accessory sets in a new range I plan to introduce this year. These items will be offered at my next market stall – 20th January, Central Walk Markets, Joondalup, WA – for customers to buy at a price they feel is fair for the quality. This is all in the name of market research … I’m a little bit scared but hope the results will give me good feedback. Continue reading

Introducing … Soy Wax Candles

18 Aug

After much anticipation (well, in our house anyway) I am finally able to announce the new addition to Just Jane … soy wax candles.

Candles by Just Jane

These are something we have made at home for some time now, but after several friends commented on how lovely they were when given them as gifts we finally decided to give them a go as a part of the business. It’s very exciting although a little daunting too.

The candles are made of 100% soy wax and for now they are all container candles – hand poured into lovely glassware. In the fullness of time we will expand the range and we hope to introduce pillar candles eventually. Soy wax is a completely eco-friendly product and sustainable which makes chosing candles made of this vegetable based wax an environmentally sound one. I’ve included below a little chart which shows the differences between burning a regular paraffin blend candle (what most mass produced candles are made from) and a soy wax candle.

My candles are all hand poured by me and made with love.

And the really great thing about them is that they can be decorated and personalised to suit your requirements! The baby bulbs make ideal bonbonniere/placecard style gifts for weddings and special events and the larger ones are great for gifts for those special people in your life.

Baby Bulb Candles – Decorated

We are starting small with just 3 styles but as the business grows so will the range.

I would love for you to visit www.justjane.com.au and have a good look at them. I even have a store set up where you can order them online and then I’ll be in touch to discuss the finer details.

Introducing Love’s Dream …

5 Jul

Love's Dream Collection - http://www.justjane.com.au

Rich red shimmer cardstock and handmade polymer clay hearts give this new invitation set a dreamy look. The set is not quite ready for full display yet, but I couldn’t wait to show you the pictures!

I made these mini red hearts quite a few weeks ago now and they’ve been sitting in a box on my desk begging me to do something with them. And then after weeks of hard work on revamping my websites and having no time to get hands on creative … inspiration suddenly struck! I love the floaty effect of the hearts leaving the tag. I love the deep richness of the red shimmer paper. And I love the simplicity of the overall look. I’m especially loving the font, Dobkin Script, at the moment too! What do you think?

The added beauty of this collection will be that the colour of the hearts can be coordinated with the bride’s choice of colours – we don’t have to stick with red … what about gold … or silver … maybe fuschia …

Here are some links to other red and hearty gorgeousness:

Colour Theme – Red from The Bride’s Diary website

Pandora Silver Charm – currently on sale at 63% off!!

Red Heart Lollipops – great idea for a favour

Red Heart Candles – Another favour idea?

Red dresses – I would not necessarily recommend buying a dress off the internet however. Do thorough research and due diligence.

Red wedding cakes – just look at all these beautiful cakes! A google search for ‘red wedding cakes’.

I’d love to see your red wedding pictures.
