We wanted to produce something that really showcased our products and demonstrated how they can be used.

Pow – a video is born!

I’ve finally knuckled down and decided to have a go at making a video. Now we’re not talking The Favourite or A Star is Born but I am a little bit chuffed with my efforts! I’ve been reading a lot online about how videos are the way of the future and I have to agree. […]

Haiku for Mother’s Day

My mum is so understanding. Even at the grand old age of 52 (eek!), I still have this urge to make stuff – origami bunnies that pop up in the post, water colour floral offerings that really should be kept in the dark, pom pom fancies that unravel with no warning and all manner of […]

Finding some space

So there is a plus side to driving rain, hail, relentless wind and  – oh blink and you’ll miss it – a few rays of sunshine! It’s the perfect time to rearrange cupboards, move furniture and tidy up those scary corners. We’ve been busy doing just that here at home and it’s amazing how shifting […]

Be resolute!

So it’s all over; the tinsel’s almost packed away, the resolutions have already been forgotten and Joe Wickes keeps flaunting his loveliness all over the place exhorting us to get up and fight the flab!

  It’s almost the most magical time of the year!  To you the run-up to Christmas might start in October, or November, if you’re really lucky! For us, it started back in January when we rolled off the sofa after one too many mince pies and started planning for Christmas markets for later in the […]
