About An Ink In Twine
Hello and Thanks for popping by An Ink In Twine!
Hello!! I'm Erin - the Florist, Creator, Printer, Cutter, Packer, Poster, Photographer, Admin lady and Social Media manager at An Ink In Twine... so, I'm basically the one-woman show haha!!!
An Ink In Twine started back in 2018 with an idea to create handmade invites, games and cake toppers after loving to make these for my own kids parties!
I started off selling on eBay and Esty and within a few weeks the orders come rolling in and I was blown away by the love and support from everyone!
Baby and Bridal Shower orders are the most popular and my fave to make (which is funny as I never actually hosted my own Baby Shower with any of my 3 babies!!).
Yes, I am also Mum of 3! Sometimes it's a bit crazy making all these orders round 3 kiddos (and a big Fur-baby) but I absolutely love getting to express my creative side plus it keeps my brain active and constantly thinking of new ideas!!
In March 2020 my small business was hit hard by Covid. Within 5 days I had to close.
I spent 3 months home schooling my kids during lockdown and in July 2020 I decided to study Floristry. I wanted to for years but being a Mum with a business and kids I didn't know how I could... but I kept thinking "if not now then when?".
I commenced a 6 month full time course and in December 2020 I became a fully qualified Florist!!!!
Lol, It honestly was crazy, I had many nights of minimal sleep, no social life to get assignments done, even on family trips I had my laptop and would work on assessments in the car. At the same time I was trying to rebuild AIIT.
In 2020 I went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows and back again. What a rollercoaster!!
But I'm proud to say that in the process I've achieved more than I ever could imagine and for that I'm pretty damn proud!!
An Ink In Twine has also expanded to offer Gift Hampers which were a big request from customers. Filled with beautiful An Ink In Twine handmade and locally sourced goodies including bath salts, essential oil perfume rollers, small batch tea, scrunchies, heat packs, candles, gourmet chocolates, soft toys, milestone cards, hair tie cards, handmade earrings and I have soooo many more ideas I cannot wait to offer soon!
BUT, best of all! I'm now offering Floristry too, fresh and dried!
Fresh options are only available to North Brisbane customers, but Dried can be posted *Australia Wide!
This means no more running around for your next event as I can offer games, favours, flowers and even a gift for a special someone!
Keep an eye out for package deals as well as weekly flower options to brighten up your home or to gift to someone else.
In the future I also hope to offer workshops and party hosting in North Brisbane too!
*Dried flowers cannot be posted to WA or TAS due to biosecurity laws.
