A Quick Catchup

Hello, It's half term and I have two noisy boys at home! I've been out of the studio most of the week and haven't managed to get as much done with my Christmas Journals as I wanted.  I did however get my journal finished last week and as well as the 'journal with me' videos I will also be doing a flip through of it on my YouTube channel. The extra pieces have now arrived for the Christmas kits and tomorrow I will be finishing putting those together and getting them ready for the launch on Saturday 30th October. It...

My First Stall

Hello, The weeks seem to be speeding by at the moment and Wednesdays come round really quickly.  This week I'm going to talk to you about my first stall I had at a show on Saturday. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you will probably know I did my first stall. It was very last minute, I only knew I was doing it late on Wednesday night and the show was the Saturday! Luckily I had watched a few YouTube videos about doing craft stalls, so I had a few tips that I used. The main one was practicing the display....

Halloween Launch!

Hello, I can't believe it's September! It's my birthday this month and I was thinking of having a sale on my website for the day. I will let you know in next weeks blog!

Patting myself on the back

Hello, welcome to my new blog post. I've just finished filming a video of how I make my upcycled journals. I've done it over the last few days and it's a step by step how to. I'm so pleased with myself and feel I deserve a pat on the back. This is the journal I made. I've not been very confident doing videos. That, as well as not having the best set up, has made me shy away from making them. So I decided to just go for it, thinking anything might be better than nothing. The result was better than...

A Week Of Firsts!!

Hello, It's been a week of firsts this week. I uploaded my first unboxing video earlier this week and today I did my first 'Reel'!  It was a very basic reel of this journal and not in the same league as the others on there, but I did it and I'm so pleased with myself. Hopefully I will get more confident and can make some more, I have a few ideas. So if you follow me on INSTAGRAM you can see my journey through the world of Reels.  And as if that wasn't enough I also joined Tik Tok! I thought...
