Just The Beginning-x Giveaway Goodies

I’ve been super lucky recently when it comes to winning giveaways. It was only last month that I wrote about the tea-goodies I won in Em’s Giveaway and now I have even more awesome prizes to blog about. Maybe I should go and put a lottery ticket on or something and make the most of this winning streak. Today’s giveaway goodies are from the lovely Tori from JustTheBeginning-x.

Tori is a blogger and illustrator who lives right by the sea just on the outskirts of Brighton. Tori says: My wonderful husband gifted me a graphics tablet for Christmas 2017 and after a few silly drawings I began selling greeting cards on other websites. In June 2018 I decided that I wanted everything together and JustTheBeginning-x became home to my shop. I really hope you enjoy your time here! 

You can follow Tori on Twitter / Instagram.

In the giveaway I won two cute cards, a badge and a mirror. I loved these designs so much I immediately went to Tori’s shop and picked up a couple more postcards, stickers and an extra badge.

The I’d Rather Be Blogging sticker is my absolute fave. You can buy your own blogging sticker for just £1.80 which is a blogging-bargain. And it’s so true. There is nothing else I’d rather be doing right now.

As well as blogging stickers, this cute unicorn sticker is another adorable item. Tori has so many awesome stickers in her shop which are both cute and clever. I really love the You Know How To Make Everything Butter and the Chubby Hamster sticker.

I picked up 4 brilliant postcards. I always appreciate a good pun and these are great: All You Need Is ICECREAM, DOUGHNUT ever give up, GNOME more regrets and I think you’re FAB. I’ve just spotted the I Don’t Give A FLOCK Flamingo Postcard and need to add this one to my collection asap.

I can’t wait to send someone this birthday card: Have A FLAMINGOod Birthday. Flamingos and puns, what a perfect combination. 

I love this Sleepy Fox card as it can be used for any occasion – birthdays, thank yous, just a note to say… Sleepy Fox has got you covered. Tori’s greeting cards are fun and fabulous, I especially love You Will Always Have A Pizza My Heart and A TOAST To The Happy Couple with toasts in wedding outfits.

I think everything here is FAB. In the giveaway, a flowery pocket mirror was included which is gorgeous. You can check out the other designs here. 

My badge collection is forever growing and now I have two more cute additions to add to it: I’d Rather Be Blogging and this Cute Zebra badge. 

It’s always a lovely touch when you receive a personalized note within your goodies, even cuter that it’s decorated with hearts and stars. Thanks Tori!

If you like these goodies, make sure you check out Tori’s shop. You can also follow JustTheBeginning-x on Twitter / Instagram to keep up with the latest creations, updates and support a small biz too. Which designs are your favourite? Are you a pun lover like me? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you!

    Yay for you winning another giveaway – I loved reading the tea-goodies you won before! That’s such a cute way that her shop opened, who would have thought that a Christmas gift would lead to her opening up a shop! The “I’d Rather Be Blogging” sticker is so cute, I think I remember seeing something like that on a mug!

    The GNOME more regrets postcard is so cute!! That’s so nice of her to include a handwritten note too. I also love collecting badges, some with quotes and some with animals too, I keep them on my backpack for the longest time!

    I love how creative her art is, and the puns! I’ll have to check out her shop to take a look and some more of her things!


    • August 15, 2018 / 12:57 pm

      Thank you for your sweet and thoughtful comment Sahara 💖. The sticker is awesome isn’t it! I’d love to get it on a mug too 😍. Aww yes, I’m starting a badge collection to go with my pin collection. I’m glad you liked the post lovely and hope you find some nice goodies in Tori’s shop ☺️ xx

  20. August 13, 2018 / 10:14 pm

    Every time I visit a market or specialty shop, I always look for artists’ unique cards. They are the best gifts and over the years, as I’ve sent out so many to my friends, I have seen them collect them, which I find very sweet. I thought just about every single one of these in this collection was adorable. Especially enjoyed the play on words flamingo card and the snoozing fox.

    • August 18, 2018 / 2:15 pm

      Thanks so much Jess! 💖 I’m exactly the same, I really love unique cards from small businesses. I’m glad you like these cards, the fox & flamingo are super cute! 😍 xx
