So, a while ago I shared my Be Nice or Leaf designs over here on the blog, which I absolutely love and am so excited about. As well as a snazzy new print, I was so pleased to be sharing a tote bag to my lovely selection of gifts and goodies for plant lovers.
However, when I was creating and planning these designs, there was another, niggling idea that wouldn't stop bouncing around in my head - that this design would look GREAT as a doormat. It's the ultimate introverted, plant-lady, sassy little announcement to direct at passers by, before they've even crossed the threshold!
So I did some research, and I came up against a problem: to get the kind I wanted (that coco, coir, west elm-y, traditional doormat-of-dreams material) you had to order loads. And I mean, way larger quantities than anything I've ever ordered for my shop before. (and I mean, size-wize, doormats take up a fair bit more room than notebooks do)
But I couldn't let it die! I kept returning to the websites of manufacturers and wondering and pondering and planning and bargaining.
And sometimes I think if you believe in something that much, maybe you just need to get on and make it happen.
(I got this same feeling about my book House Jungle , too, so hopefully that's a good sign!)
But, naturally, large quantities means large amounts of money and a tiny flat full of boxes, so I wanted to get the ball rolling by setting up a pre-order!
