An oldie but a goodie!

First Night Design

I’ve been having a great deal of fun making these messenger bags that are now sold by Zazzle!  The bag I’m featuring today would be perfect as a very special first night present for friends in the Theatre, whether amateur or professional.  There are also all kinds of  accessories to add to the bag, from cross straps and drop pockets to moleskin notebooks.

The illustration is from the inside pages of my original theatre programme for Gilbert & Sullivan‘s The Gondoliers, produced by D’Oyly Carte at the Savoy Theatre in 1889.  The quote is a classic theatre saying and can be customized to suit or removed entirely.

Watch out for the next bag which will be the same as above but with a white background.

Take care and keep laughing!

The Snowman Envelope

‘Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end’. Virginia Woolf

‘I don’t want to push the envelope. Let the envelope stay in the middle of the table. I’ll just make you laugh.’ Rita Rudner

‘Alongside my ‘no email’ policy, I resolve to make better use of the wonderful Royal Mail, and send letters and postcards to people. There is a huge pleasure in writing a letter, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. And huge pleasure in receiving real letters, too.’ Tom Hodgkinson

Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper
Sleeping Beauty Gift Wrapping Paper

Having just sold some of my Sleeping Beauty wrapping paper, I decided Princess Aurora, as she has been known since the animated Disney film in 1959, deserved a post of her own.

The original story, The Beauty sleeping in the wood, or La Belle au bois dormant, was published by Charles Perrault in 1697 as part of his Histoires ou contes du temps passé, before being taken up by the Brothers Grimm.

According to ListVerse, the original story has unpleasant overtones in that ‘the young woman is put to sleep because of a prophesy, rather than a curse. And […] the king seeing her asleep, and rather fancying having a bit, rapes her. After nine months she gives birth to two children (while she is still asleep). One of the children sucks her finger which removes the piece of flax which was keeping her asleep. She wakes up to find herself raped and the mother of two kids’. Macabre, mais oui!

I have yet to find exactly the right words to describe how I feel when someone likes my work. As for when they like it enough to blog about it, I’m almost speechless, which is rare!  Cassie Peters of Angel and Spot has done just that on her blog, A Day in the Life of Angel and Spot.  You are an angel in disguise, Cassie.

Today’s Store Showcase

Today I will share a few products from First Night Design.  This store is not mine but belongs to a friend of mine that I met through Zazzle.  There are so many beautiful products to choose from in this store that it is going to be difficult to select just a few of them to show you in this blog posting.

Cassie has some rather delicious designs of her own at Zazzle, including the pretty collage below, and several different stores. I recommend a visit.  Look out for her enchanting Iowa barns of which I’m particularly fond.

Need some advice on a cure for the Christmas hangover? Try this advice and make sure you put bananas on your holiday shopping list!

thinkbigpublishing

Did you wake up with a throbbing headache, a general feeling of physical misery, a tiger in your bathroom and a bit of left over turkey stuck somewhere on your shirt?
Before you choose to finish that cold turkey or opt for the Bloody Mary, try
these tips instead:

Rehydrate

Alcohol is a diuretic – a chemical that kicks your urinary system into overdrive, and unless you managed to alternate your alcoholic beverages with water in between (which never works does it?), your post-drinking symptoms are most likely due to dehydration. Rehydrating is key when it comes to recovering from a hangover and cannot be stressed enough. But I’m not talking coffee, Red Bull or hair-of-the-dog here. Caffeine is an acknowledged stimulant, and while you might hope caffeine can perform its miracles of giving some much needed focus and alertness, it’s another diuretic. Red Bull isn’t much better (and requires…

About Sarah & First Night Design

The Peacock Collection on my Zazzle store is immensely popular, particularly the business cards.  Over the weekend I sold the wedding invitations and, since I’m very fond of this peacock – courtesy of The Graphics Fairy – and have always been entranced by these glorious birds in art, I thought I’d make this Peacock Day!

Enjoy!
