If you have been following me on Instagram recently, you may have seen my frustrated InstaStories detailing some strange and rather unacceptable behaviour from that well known online selling platform: Notonthehighstreet.Read More
Another year, another successful Etsy Made Local from the Nottingham Etsy Team!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my wonderful US clients / readers / customers!
It may not be a holiday that we celebrate here in the UK, but from my years of watching US sitcoms and shows I've always loved the tradition (and forgive me if this is not a tradition!) of sitting around the table and stating what you're thankful for.
It's so important to take a moment, even if it is just once a year, to show gratitude for what you have rather than constantly thinking of what you don't have.Read More
I love Halloween.
All that weird and wonderful stuff - it's my absolute favourite. And I love seeing people in costumes not taking themselves too seriously. It's all got that magical element to it, like Christmas, where once (or twice) a year you can lend yourself to believing in the afterlife, the paranormal and the unexplained.
It's also that time of year when you get to see some amazingly creative clothes, jewellery and baking ideas! My Pinterest and Instagram has been completely Halloween themed for about 2 weeks now, so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite finds for the season:Read More
We've been so lucky to have 20 degree days this September, and even that brief week of balmy nights that took me back to a lovely thundery July. However there is also that faint little nip in the air in the morning, and the nights are starting to draw in closer. I feel like I want to start hibernating, to gather all my warm things and build a fort.Read More
I am SO excited to FINALLY reveal my brand new online store: Deborah Panesar Textiles!Read More
Last week saw our Nottingham Etsy Team collaborate with The Craft Off to bring an evening of fast paced and competitive crafting!
Hosted with our friends Rough Trade Nottingham, The Craft Off is like Art Attack meets pub quiz: Our attendees were given an hour to craft under a secret theme with only a select range of materials available. The winners being named Craft Off victors and winning some incredible prizes!Read More
April is finally here which means a lot of things here in the studio; Firstly, that today is the day that I launch my first ever downloadable wedding invitation range on Etsy, and secondly that it is exactly one month until my husband and I fly to Mexico for our 2 year delayed honeymoon!
Needless to say it's a very exciting month ahead, but today I am most excited about my new wedding stationery range which has been 5 months in the making.Read More
Tuesday evening saw the Nottingham Etsy Team host their first ever Seller Seminar Session at Rough Trade Nottingham, and it was pretty awesome (if I do say so myself)
One of the things I absolutely love with Etsy is the community it fosters, and as an Etsy seller myself I've been very lucky to be involved with the Nottingham Etsy Team on a very hands on level. Last year I was promoted to In-Person Events leader, and with the help of my other fellow team leaders we put on the first of our Seller Seminar Sessions at the incredible Rough Trade to a sell out audience!Read More
Back in December 2015 I decided that it was long overdue to draw up a cat pattern! I find cats have such individual personalities that it seemed so wrong to just draw from getty reference images - so I did an international call out on my Instagram to which I had an unprecedented influx of tags as people sent me photos of their gorgeous kitties!Read More
