Personalised Nursery Door Sign - Monochrome - Cloud

Ok, so its not jewellery storage… But Hey! They look Good!

Here at NAJB HQ, we’re very pleased with our new range of name plaques for doors.  You may recognise some of them from our Hair Bow Holders. We know that every child is different and had spotted that many businesses selling name labels have simple pink-or-blue variation. Is your child a cookie-cutter pink girl, or blue boy?

Ideas to store your jewellery

I’ve been really getting in the mood of Spring Cleaning recently. You may have seen the March blog about re-purposing jewellery. This one is Part 2 of my Spring Cleaning binge. Part of why I like having a really good tidy-out is putting everything back into the cupboard neatly afterwards. There’s something very satisfying about a perfectly organised space.

Upcycle Your Jewellery Box

Looking out of the window, it might actually be spring soon. Perhaps… maybe… So I’ve started thinking about Spring Cleaning. I like to have a tidy up every now and then, going through clothes, books, kitchen cupboards and the rest, clearing out the things that are out of date, not worn, not read, not needed.

But what if you think that there’s just a bit too much hype around February 14th? And the fact that roses double in price for that day, and restaurants are booked months in advance, and chocolates make you fat puts you off, .

I’ve been mining the internet for information, and am blown away by how much .

Do you ever see something online, or when you’re out and about, and say ‘hmmm, I want that’, or ‘hmmm, I could do things with that’. Well, my most recent ‘hmmm’ moment has resulted in a very happy collaboration with jewellery designer Mica Peet. Mica is based in Southsea in Hampshire, and designs items such as earrings, brooches and necklaces. She begins by sketching a design, often wild-life, or .

September

With an abrupt end to the summer, and the temperature dropping overnight, we’re feeling like autumn here at NAJB HQ. It’s possible we have leaves on the brain, like leaves on the line but a lot more productive, and prettier too! Our new favourite thing is the monstera leaf. Also known as the Swiss cheese plant, the Monstera Deliciosa produces delicious fruit, hence the name, and fabulous leaves which .
