It’s official…we’re back from our hols in stunning North Devon! While we didn’t have the heat of Tenerife for our week away in the surfing hotspot of Croyde, we did do lots of sight-seeing and walking and we picked up lots of ideas. Sometimes it helps to just get away from your usual environment to get the creative juices flowing, right?
Now that we’re back, it’s time to start preparing for the busy Christmas season which will be upon us before we know it!
I spent a good portion of the morning fulfilling a couple of orders that came in towards the end of this week, which is great! I’ve been really keen to see the website orders pick up and it is happening when we’ve actually stepped back a lot due to packing up the flat to move (soon…hopefully next month?), so who knows what we can do once we’re settled into our new work space? Exciting times!
We’ve cancelled our place at the Chalfont fair again because it could have been in the middle of the move, but we are definitely doing the Christmas one. Can’t wait to get back into that and getting known by new customers. It’s always worth being there every time as people can get to know you and come back to see what else you have on your stall.
We now need to get making for those Christmas events!
We are back from a lovely week in Cornwall, and this afternoon I made these gift boxes using some funky templates I found. What do you think?
I think I will use them on our stalls that we will have on the weekends running up to Christmas. I know, it seems early, but it’s time to get cracking on Christmas prep!
We will also be relocating in a few weeks (not far from where we are now) and are making up boxes for another purpose (!) so we will need time to sort ourselves out in our new home before the Christmas fun begins!…
