Packaging news! In a way to do my bit for the environement I will be swapping over to cellophane sleeves for Vanessa Stone greetings cards. These are biodegradabl and made from cellulose which is a plant derivative. Its not perfect but at least its an improvement on the plastic ones. All new orders for 2018 will be leaving the studio in cellophane sleeves.....
