Crafty Buy: printed Stork baby book set from Ella Johnston
Everyone seems to be having babies at the moment. You only have to log into Facebook to see that half your friends have dropped a sprog and is using his/her picture for their profile (either that or their new anti-aging cream is incredible). Booties and blankets are all very well, but what about something a little longer lasting? This beautiful handmade baby book set from Ella Johnston is a definite keeper.
Ella's elegant stork is the perfect antidote to the twee offerings you'll find in most card shops. As Ella says "I wanted to make a baby gift with a difference, something that was subtle and elegant, that tugs at the heart strings without being cutesy, cutesy. For a discerning new mum or dad!"
The special set includes a handmade box, a handmade A5 coptic-bound book, four greeting cards and four gift tags - all beautifully screen printed with the stately stork motif.
And you're not into long-legged birds maybe this chirpy blue tit notebook will make your heart flutter.
Ella's work is delicate and wonderfully British. Her prints, inspired by nature and fragility, have been shown love by Stylist Magazine and Homes and Gardens. Snap an Ella original up before she becomes too famous for you to afford them.
