Hello and Thanks for popping by An Ink In Twine!
Hello!! I'm Erin - the Florist, Creator, Printer, Cutter, Packer, Poster, 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 originally 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 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 a few months home schooling my kids during lockdown and in July 2020 I decided to study Floristry. I had wanted to for many years but being a Mum with a business and kids I didn't know how I could... but I thought "if not now then when?". I commenced a 6 month full time course and as of December 2020 I am a fully qualified Florist!!!!
It honestly was crazy haha, I had many nights of minimal sleep, no social life to get assignments done, even on family trips I has my laptop and would be working on them in the car. At the same time I was trying to rebuild AIIT.
Over the course of 2020 I've gone from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows and back again. What a rollercoaster!!
But I'm super excited 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 Boxes which were a big request from customers. These are filled with locally sourced goodies including bath salts, small batch tea, hand poured candles, gourmet chocolates, macramé keyrings, 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! I'm currently working on dried DIY kits and Flower Bar In a Box.
Fresh options are only available to Brisbane customers, but Dried are available *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 coming early 2021 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 Brisbane too!
*Dried flowers cannot be posted to WA or TAS due to biosecurity laws.
