A Week Away

So I was away from the studio - here, there and everywhere for over a week - I stayed local and hung out with my brother, my boy, my pup, caught up with friends and then went to York to celebrate four years since my first date with my boy and then flew upto Troon to spend the weekend with a super inspiring lady and now I'm in London town.

Phew.

Pass the coffee.

Cabin Fever

This weekend we have been all about keeping our little doggy happy whilst humans set light to noisy-scary things in their gardens in the name of F.U.N. Which has meant staying in.

On a weekend.

More specifically staying in on a Saturday night. A concept I have been unfamiliar with - forever.

Ho hum what to do with this new found time of hanging out at home?

I chose catching up on reading, cooking {yes COOKING! from scratch!} and upcyling a fabulous little cupboard that is now home to my rather extensive shoe collection.

Hope you had a good one.

What-a-week.

From packing 'uge trade orders for our lovely stockists to building a den for the dog to escape the fireworks this week has been all kinds of crazy.

Hello weekend. Love xo

Hurricanes, Halloween and Headaches

In a crazy week that saw us be battered by the aftermath of some crazy weather from some far, far away lands, that saw Halloween {in stylish and not so stylish ways} all over our social media feed, the loss of the great Oscar De La Renta and saw me with a headache that I have had for nearly ten-whole-days we also did some work. Here is a little bit of it xo

Oh Monday, Monday

So following two weeks - AKA my October so far - that saw me in London spending time at my stockists including Selfridges and Fenwicks, gorgeous breakfasts at Ham Yard Hotel, endless lunches at Liberty, Dean St. Townhouse and Laduree
, a trip to Sadlers Well, meetings with clients, meeting with Harrods about our exclusives and time with family and friends I returned home and to the studio feeling more than a little shattered.

Luckily my wonderful Helen had a handle on everything and I was able to indulge myself when out of no where pre Winter lurgy grabbed me and made me spend time in bed watching Sex and The City {for the millionth time}.

And is it really Monday again? really? xo

A Wonderful Day At The V&A

A super lovely day meeting 12 new wonderful Papergirls at the Victoria and Albert Museum - what a day! Our second sell out collaboration.

There is something magical about being in a museum when no one else is - nosing around the quiet corners and peering into beautiful rooms that are full of treasures but free from visitors.

Christmas Pop Up Print Shop

Well hello there!

And good afternoon to you, yes you - over there - the tired-of-this-weather-looking one, you...

I've got some news to put a smile on that pretty face... I am bringing back a series of workshops for the Autumn & Winter {more to come on the others next week} Never since Tony Hart graced our screens has lino printing and screen printing been so ruddy cool - think tattoo inspired birdies and anchors, oh-so-on-trend geometrics and {totally overdone but none the less still charming} moustaches and bow ties - you get the picture.

Like the sound of that? naturally, it's going to be a little bit special, learning about block printing techniques before trying your new skills to create your very own canvas tote bag and tea towel as well as a set of your very own Christmas cards.

What is the date?
29th November 2014

What are the timings?
10.30 til 3.00

What do you need to bring?
Absolutely nothing, just your pretty self. Unless you like to wear expensive clothes - then maybe bring your favourite apron {or swap your Jacobs for Jaeger - don't worry, I won't tell anyone}. But seriously we do use inks so sleeves that roll up are a must and family heirlooms should be avoided.

Do I need a design?
We will have some template designs for you to choose from for the lino print and you will have the opportunity to create a design of your very own. If you want to be super prepared then prep a design at home, but remember block shapes with little or no detail work best, especially if it is your first time.

Where is the Pop Up Shop?
I've yet to confirm the venue but it will be central Derby.

What's the cost?

£45 per person which includes all of your materials including tea towel, tote bag and card and envelopes as well as a little goodie bag.

You in? cool, book your spot below*





*Sorry lovelies I can't reserve any spaces until you make your pretty little minds up if you can make it or not - we only have limited spaces, time is short and time is money - so you are either in or out.

A little bit of Small Print...

- Once your space is booked it is non refundable and non transferrable.
- If you could arrive 5 minutes before the workshop starts that would be fabulous.
- There will be a 30 minute break for lunch.

Want to see what we get upto in these classes? take a look at Pop Up Print Shops {and at Folly}, well I had such a bloody ball that I promised myself as soon as absolutely possible I would do some more...

I would love to see you if you are a beginner, haven't thought about paper cutting {except the painful type you get in the office} since school or if you just want to come and hangout and talk cheese and Fleetwood Mac.

Any questions? then drop me a mail hello@abigailwarner.com

Get crafty friends xo

Fabulous Fenwick of Bond Street

Yesterday was great, the sun was shining and I was in London town for a day of meetings and visits at lots of pretty special places.

Top of my list was seeing my designs at Fenwick of Bond St. what a beautiful shop - and having spent half of my working week {when I had a proper job} just around the corner on Davies St. and having nipped into Fenwicks many times for presents, gifts and treats {as well as Selfridges - just around the corner on Oxford St. *pinch me*} it was so so lovely to see a bit of Abigail Warner in the store.

Here's to an equally perfect Wednesday {but with Mercury retrograde I may be being a tad optimistic} even with the kind of rain that would've made Noah ponder moving on xo

Use Your Imagination

On Friday 3rd October {really, it was only 3 days ago} I hung out at the Business Design Centre in Islington at Condé Nast Brides The Show and had a total hoot.

The fabulous team at Brides asked me to host a session in their Imagination Room that would inspire their Brides to be so I chose edge painting {with pink neon and gold - obviously} and letter pressing a wedding invitation on my 8x5 Adana table top press AND the brides flocked to have some inky fun and a jolly great time was had by all.

I celebrated with fish, chips and wine - perfect Friday fare.
