ThisisNessieMy name is Alyson, and I am a stationery addict.

Always have been.

It has been said that I’m like a kid in a sweet shop, except it’s stationery. The adrenaline rushes and my eyes dart over the beautiful illustrations, I feel the crisp card in my hands and covet beautiful pens in gorgeous colours.  It all works for me. I’m in heaven!

So when I received an email from one of my favourite stationery companies,, telling me they were recruiting affiliate marketers for the first time to support their business growth, I knew it would be a perfect match.

I’ve often said that I’m lucky because I get to choose my clients. I only work with clients whose products I really love. It makes what I do so much easier when I can be authentic in my passion for the business while representing them online.

SassySocialMarketingSo, after a few emails, phone calls and a visit to the This is Nessie studios, where I met Nessie herself, along with her husband Duncan, I was recruited into the This is Nessie fold.

Nessie is a very talented illustrator, Mum of 4, who began her business on her kitchen table… and has since taken a true entrepreneurial journey ‘delivering smiles since 2002’. Duncan now runs the business on a full time basis, the business brain behind the creative talent.

The product range is delightful and truly bespoke – choose your designs, your wording, the colour of the paper and envelopes, place your order, and hey presto, just a couple of days later your own personalised stationery is dropping through your letter box. From correspondence cards (see competition below) to invitations, birth announcements to the full range of wedding stationery.

Bespoke stationeryAnd it doesn’t end there, you can have the same designs in gorgeous personalised prints, and new for 2016 these designs can also be ordered as gifts such as t-towels, glass chopping boards, cushions and bone china mugs. These really are the gifts that say “I’ve thought of you”. 

Oh, and have I mentioned commissions? Nessie asked me to send a phone pic of my house, and back came this delightful print… now to decide if I will have it next on correspondence cards, cushions, a chopping board or a mug? So many wonderful choices…

And with typical This is Nessie attention to detail, the items are carefully and beautifully packaged like rare treasures before being popped in the post!

SassySocialMarketingI will be appearing at events, fairs, parties and pop-ups throughout Surrey, sharing the love for This is Nessie as gifts for your family and friends… or a treat for yourself!

And of course, the perfect partnership would not be complete without me bringing some of my own brand of Sassy Social Marketing. You can find me on:
