GIVEAWAY! Phoenix Christmas stationary sets x3

I'm sure it hasn't escaped anyone's notice that Christmas is just around the corner.

To help you get organised this year, my lovely sister-in-law Louise is giving away a Phoenix Christmas stationary pack to three Craving Fresh readers.

Each pack is valued at NZ$20.85 and contains 2 x 3D pop-out cards (2 different designs), 2 x gift tags, 1 x sheet label stickers, 4 x postcards (2 different designs) and 8 x Christmas cards (4 different designs).

Louise started as an Independent Phoenix Trader two years ago after a friend sent her some Phoenix greeting cards. She loved them so much, she decided this would be a product she could happily share with others. (Those cards sat on her kitchen shelf for a year, they were so lovely).

Louise has found being an Independent Phoenix Trader a great way to earn money with lots of support from Phoenix, but without any pressure. As a full-time mother to six children, she doesn't have a lot of time to get out and promote her business or do markets, but can easily take a basket of cards to playgroup, preschool or school and show her friends or leave for mums and teachers to browse and purchase from.

Having the entire Phoenix range online for customers to view and purchase is another easy way Louise is able to fit selling cards around family-life.

She's found that many of her customers stock up on 10 or 20 greeting cards at a time, planning ahead for birthdays and other events they have coming up in the year. These customers tell Louise they love knowing they are organised and that having a stock of cards to use for unplanned events saves stress and last minute dashes to the shop.

Like many of us, Louise loves anything which helps her to be more organised, and especially appreciates the Phoenix range of organisational stationary, like these reward charts, babysitter notes, memo pads, jotters and to do lists.

This recipe organiser is another one of Louise's favourite Phoenix products.

Check out the Phoenix website to find out more about these products, as well as a huge range of greeting cards, invitations, writing sets, thank you's, gift boxes, advent calendars, decorations, gift wrap, organiser boxes, memento boxes, posters and so much more.
