Who knew it was such a burning personal issue?!
Cad ar a bhuil mé ag caint? What am I referring to?
Leabhair nótaí! Why, notebooks, of course!
The Cártaí Rúbaí team had a meeting recently where we discussed adding to our product line. Ba bhreá linn leabhair nótaí a chur ar fáil. We would love to have a range of notebooks.
We were happily discussing designs and sizes and types of cover, and we found we agreed on most things until it came to talking about what the inside of the notebook would look like.
That, we did NOT agree on.
I (Sadhbh) prefer Blank, while Cáit prefers Lined. Neither of us could be swayed. In fact it almost came to blows… well, ok … not really… but it did reach an absolute impasse. So what did we do?
We turned to our lovely friends on Facebook to ask their valued opinion, of course. And we were totally overwhelmed by the response. It seems it’s a subject close to many people’s hearts!
We’ve finally totted up the results and there’s a clear winner. Click on the image above to find out which sister is not a happy bunny
Do you agree? An aontaíonn tú?
Cáit has arrived home safely from her Mí na Meala (honeymoon) and our heads are full of ideas that we just can’t wait to get started on! We’re looking forward to putting our heads together as much as possible over the coming weeks and months and have a million ideas for new cards and products that we can’t wait to share with you.
Wedding season is still in full swing it would seem and our badges have been proving popular as favours this summer. We were also asked to custom-make some ‘survival-kits’ like the ones we made for Cáit’s Hen Night recently. I’ll share a picture once the hen night in question is over as I don’t want to spoil the surprise for anyone!
I also attended another family wedding recently which had gorgeous personal details too. Another bridal banner by my husband:
And some sweet favours:
In the spirit of back-to-school (eeek!) we will be adding a few extra products to the site over the next few days, which we hope you’ll find useful – so be sure to keep an eye out!
Slán go fóill,
Tá Cáit ag pósadh agus táimid ar bís!
Wedding season is upon us and here at Cártaí Rúbaí HQ Wedding fever is at an all time high! Cáit is getting married next week! Most of the details are still top-secret, but we’re dying to share all of the creative ideas we have pulled together to make her day extra special.
As I can’t share anything from the wedding, I thought I’d share a little detail from Cáit’s Hen-Party that was a real hit with the girls out on the town that night.
Cáit’s Hen Night Survival Kit!
It was a little pack with hand-stamped lettering which was presented as a gift to each ‘hen’ at the party. It was topped with a flower pin, with ‘Cáit’s Hen Night’ and the date attached to it. These could be worn in hair or pinned to clothes.
The contents of the kits were intended to help each ‘hen’ through a night of fine food and boozy cocktails.
Lip Balm for kissable lips, Plasters for treacherous heels, Lollipops and Chocolate to keep the energy levels up, breath mints for freshness, hair ties for when the dancing left us all hot and bothered, bubbles for fun and painkillers for the morning after!
They came in really useful I can assure you! Go háraithe na pianmhúcháin!
Seans gur chomair dom rud éigin cosúil a chur le chéile don bhainis!
Grá mór, Sadhbh xx
