January 2014 {Okay Let's do this} "I Love You" Box

It’s out! It’s out! All the awesome goodies that subscribers received in our January 2014 "I Love You" box.

Christmas is over and it's time to start getting organised and ready for the year ahead. When James and I were planning this months box of love we chatted about the key items that we thought could help us get into the swing of things and these are perfect for list makers like us.

  • 1 x 52 page Meal Planner
  • 1 x 52 page Weekly Planner
  • 1 x 30 page "Okay let's do this" Notepad
  • 1 x Kraft Eco Friendly Pen
  • 1 x Tattly Temporary Tattoo ( Live today, Okay Let's do this, Focus}

One of my New Years resolutions for 2014 is to illustrate more and spend more time creating handwritten type, I so enjoyed designing these planners and drawing out the type first to be used within the design. If you love hand drawn work as much as I do I encourage you to give it a try. 

The February "I love you" box orders are closed but be sure to order yourself or a friend our March one. You can subscribe through our online shoppe , simply click here.


What’s Cooking . . . good looking? Meal Planner Printable

Hey, Kat here - I’m the new intern at the Elephantshoe factory. I’ve just entered my third week of internship here at Ellishoe and I’m very excited and proud to be a part of this week’s NEW family & lifestyle FREE PRINTABLE post we conceptualised, designed and styled for theprettyblog

Dig out the unused cookbooks you’ve hidden away on your top shelf. It’s time to make the new delicious meals that you’ve always wanted to try out. {We particularly love Summer Linguine & Roasted Pepper Bruschetta recipes from theprettyblog}.

This week’s DIY is a meal planner, use it for yourself, your family, or print a few, tie it up with some twine and give it to a friend as a little gift. Download your free MEAL PLANNER here.


Spring has come and what better way to slowly move away from hearty winter stews and soups to some lighter meals. Our Elephantshoe meal planner will not only help you to stay on track with what’s cooking in the kitchen, but it also serves as a great way to remember your list of groceries. Write them down and tick em off.


I love planning ahead and cooking good food, so I know this planner will be a must-have in my house.
