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 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.
About Phoenix Trading
Phoenix Trading was established in 1995 in the UK and has now sold over 100 million cards worldwide. It publishes a range of multi-purpose greeting cards and stationery and sells direct to the public.
Its cards and envelopes are top quality but cost up to 50% less than the equivalent product in shops, plus they're delivered straight to your door. All envelopes are made from recycled paper and cards are produced without chlorine so they are fully recyclable.
New products and designs are introduced regularly and Phoenix is always on the look-out for new artists (contact Louise for more information).
The majority of cards are blank for your own message, so can be used for any occasion (Christmas cards are the exception).
Phoenix Christmas cards are sold in support of Hospice NZ and during the year Phoenix also holds "Butterfly Teaparty" month where traders sell a special range of cards to raise funds for Hospice. Phoenix also offers to help with fundraising efforts at schools and clubs, etc (contact Louise for more information).
