I'm Gabrielle, I live with my husband and little dog in rural Surrey. I illustrate, design and create gorgeous and green gifts and stationery that help you connect with others in a real and tangible way, and spread a little joy in the world.
the green gables helps you to spend time with your loved ones, to share joy in the world, to dream and plan, to connect with your friends and family in a meaningful, heartfelt way. Do something unexpectedly lovely for a friend, send a note by snail mail or cross off your to do list with pen on paper, it’ll feel good, I promise! The joy your loved one will feel from opening a hand scribbled note sent by you is immeasurable, it means so much more than a hastily written email.
All the green gables products are made in the UK and printed on recycled paper, so now you feel extra good, right?! I strive to tread a little more lightly on this planet by using recycled, recyclable and reusable packaging, using recycled paper, and I work with independent, British suppliers.
the green gables has created special products to support Fresh Start Foundation, a charity that helps children in The Gambia get the education they need to build a better future for themselves. In 2014 the green gables is continuing to support Woodland Trust, The Brain Tumour Charity, NSPCC, age UK and WaterAid. I feel a connection with each charity, in different ways, and am a huge admirer of the incredible work they do.
the green gables products have been featured in many publications including Country Homes & Interiors, Made in Paper, Homemaker, Good Homes, Wedding Ideas, Mollie Makes and Crafts Beautiful magazines.
I hope you enjoy browsing my selection of paper goodness, each item will reach you in pristine condition with a little note from me too.
