When I started Darwin Designs, I never would have imagined that I would see my items featured on some of my favourite websites and blogs and appearing in magazines. It's so exciting to know people love what I'm doing so far and to see my items being 'liked' and 'shared' across the internet and seen by hundreds of thousands of people.
I appreciate all the features I get, from personal blogs to huge websites, but I must say that being featured on Buzzfeed and The Huffington Post within the last year was a huge compliment and made a big impact to the business. My first printed press in CrossStitcher magazine was also a lovely achievement, and I can only hope in the next year I get to see my products gracing many more pages.
My lovely bunny notebook was featured in the April 2015 edition of Cross Stitcher as a cute Easter gift. The pale green, A5 notebooks are made in the UK and for every one sold a 50p donation goes to animal charities. There is a limited stock so act fast if you fancy one.
Take a look at all the notebooks and buy online here.
This weekend Darwin Designs was featured on Buzzfeed in a post on 24 Father's Day Cards Your Dad Will Actually Want. As a devoted Buzzfeed fan this was very exciting news but more importantly lots of new customers were directed to our store to get their Father's Day cards which meant a busy evening sorting orders.
Take a look at the original Buzzfeed post here (we are number 14) and see our full range of father's day cards.
