Personalised Notice boards for Kids and the Home. Well that's New!

Are you fed up with trying to hide away boring noticeboards so that they don't draw too much attention when people walk in the room?  Well now you don't have to.  Have a look at our wonderful range of personalised noticeboards, designed to be a feature of a room so they look great even if they have few or no notes on them.  They make a truly unique gift and keepsake as well as a great piece of wall art that look great in the home. 

Who would have thought that notice boards could be so exciting??

Photo Magnetic Notice Board
Our photo notice boards look just like a photo canvas, but the metallic sheet behind the canvas means that it also doubles up as a useful noticeboard.  They will look fab anywhere - kitchen, lounge, study or playroom.

Artwork Personalised Notice Board
Just as special is our artwork notice board.  You can create your child's artwork into a noticeboard and include a message such as mummy's notes, or Summer's Artwork.  It's a wonderful way to preserve that special picture.   Again this would look fab in a kitchen or study and would make a perfect gift for mum, grandma or the home. 

And then we have a stylish range of designs both for boys and girls, that can be personalised with their names and hung in their bedrooms or playroom.  These aren't the only designs so do have a look on the website to see what else is available.

Blue Union Jack Personalised Notice Board

Pink Bunting Personalised Notice Board

All of our personalised notice boards are magnetic and come complete with four magnets - you can buy additional magnets if required.  The boards are perfect to hold memos, invites, pictures and even artwork (of which there always seems to be an abundance). 

We're really excited to be launching this new product range and really hope you like them as much as we do.  Visit our website to see our complete range.  Our magnetic notice boards make ideal personalised gifts for birthdays, christenings and Christmas.

We'd love to know what you think, so please do let us know your comments.

Pinterest...? What's it all about..?

You may or may not be aware of this fantastic and, relatively new site that is taking the social media world by storm.  The name..... Pinterest.   If you have never heard of or visited Pinterest before, it's definitely worth a visit, but be warned, you may not be able to stop at one.

So what is it?

Simply put, Pinterest is a virtual notice board.  It's a place where users can place, organise and share all the interesting images and content that they have come across online.  They create their own 'Pin Boards' and 'pin' images to them.  Each board is usually centred around a different theme.  Pinterest members can follow other members and their boards, they can also 'repin' any images they find onto their own boards  (something to bear in mind if you don't want your images shared).

Why all the fuss?

Pinterest is simple and easy to use.  Because of this users are able to share content at the press of a button, making it easy to collect, store and organise some of their favourite images and content from the web (and from the site itself).  Pinterest can be used for so many reasons - have a look at my boards (and feel free to follow).

I have boards to collect recipes that I've come across, gather easy to make craft ideas for the kids for those rainy days, ideas for picture and keepsake frames, home decorating ideas and more (as you will see).  Pinterest is also used a lot to gather wedding ideas and personal style ideas (amongst others!).

Pinterest for businesses?

It doesn't stop there though.  Businesses are also jumping on the pin-wagon - Esty is a great example, with a huge follower base and number of pin boards - all separated into different themes.

Etsy has got it right by including a mixture of content.  For example the Weddings Pin Board includes images with links to items on sale through Etsy as well as links to blog posts that followers may find useful (e.g. tips on how to plan a bridal shower).  With this rich and engaging content, it's no surprise that Etsy has managed to gain over 63,000 followers.

So that's Pinterest in a nutshell.  I'm going back again to have a browse......... see you in a few days.
