Jack & Lucy


 
I adore the story behind this beautifully designed stationery. Children love writing letters and receiving them and these lovely postcards and lettersets are perfect for encouraging this!
I would love to introduce you to Nicky...
 
Set of 6 Postcards - Jack & Lucy Theme
 
About...
I am a mum to 2 girls aged 10 and 12, a wife to my wonderful husband of nearly 12 years and a super busy business owner.  I also own The Chic Party Boutique, an online store specialising in personalised party and wedding stationery.



Letter Writing Set - Jack & Lucy Theme


Beginning...
The idea for Jack and Lucy came after we moved from Auckland earlier this year to rural Taranaki.  My girls discovered letter writing and now enjoy penning notes and letters to the friends they left behind.  They seemed to enjoy that far more than sending emails.  I had one of those lightbulb moments and it grew from there.


Choosing a name...
I created a story around the two main characters who I happened to name Jack and Lucy.  They each have a story to tell about their new life on a farm (not unlike my own children in fact), and their stories help the characters come to life and become very believable and easy for children to relate to them.






Daily...
Once the girls are off on the rural school bus and husband off to work, I begin by answering emails which came in overnight.  Next all the orders are packaged up ready for the rural postie to collect from me.  And then I get about designing and creating.

Love... 
I love the flexibility.  I love being able to go and watch the girls run in cross country or watch them play netball.  Or plan my time around school holidays etc.

Designing...
I work with a super talented graphic designer who takes all of my crazy ideas and turn them into something wonderful!

Motivation... 
I love what I do, so it's pretty easy to stay motivated.

Advice...
Running your own business is hard work.  So you've really got to be passionate about your business idea and be prepared to put in a lot of effort to make it work.



Letter Writing Set - Basket Theme

Relaxing...
These days we spend a fair amount of time pottering around on our 4 acres with the alpacas, chickens, goats, cats and dog for company!  I do enjoy a glass of wine or two while watching a movie with the family.

From here...
I have plans to expand the range to include more products.  Also, Monty the fox terrier and Ebony the big black cat will make their debuts before too long as well.

Connecting & buying...
I have a website www.jackandlucy.co.nz where the products are available for sale, you can link through to my new Jack & Lucy Facebook page from there too.  You can email me admin@jackandlucy.co.nz.



These sets are so beautiful (I have some!) and I love the way they encourage writing in children. I think Nicky has been so clever in making these sets suitable for everyone.....little boys, girls and adults too. There is a set for everyone!

Nicky has so kindly given me 3 giveaways!!! Each winner gets to choose one set of 6, either a letter set or a postcard set. They can have just one design in the set they choose, or if they prefer, a combination of the five different designs in their set, so for example one Jack, one Lucy, two Jack and Lucy, one letterbox and one basket!
