Hello! It’s great to be back with an­other catch-up to share all my crafty ex­ploits over the past month, es­pe­cially as I’ve been busy try­ing a new craft lately – sew­ing! I got to­gether with my Mam, sis­ter, Aun­tie Lynn and her friend to do a bag mak­ing work­shop in the New­ton Ay­cliffe store with our res­i­dent ex­pert, Bernie, and it was so much fun. I was so proud of the lit­tle tote bag I made, and it’s come at the per­fect time as I’ve just re­leased my new Sig­na­ture Col­lec­tion, which is full of both pa­per­craft and sew­ing good­ies. I can’t wait to build on my skills and have a go at some more sew­ing projects.

Ex­cit­ing times last month as our Eve­sham store cel­e­brated its first birth­day, so I took a trip down to see the won­der­ful ladies who work so hard for us every day. I held some demos and mini work­shops for their lovely cus­tomers and it was a fan­tas­tic day – I had such a blast! I just had to send the ladies at the store some flow­ers af­ter­wards, to thank them for all their hard work. I’m so lucky as they re­ally are a great bunch of peo­ple to work with.

Fi­nally, it was a pretty emo­tional time last month, and a huge mile­stone for us as a fam­ily as my eldest son, Oliver, of­fi­cially started school. It feels like only yes­ter­day that he was a tiny baby snug­gled in my arms, so to see him look­ing so ex­cited and proud in his lit­tle uni­form was an amaz­ing mo­ment. He’s lov­ing it so far and, in his first week, he was cho­sen as the Star Pupil! He was so proud of him­self, and of course we had to FaceTime all the grand­par­ents to give them the news and show them the badge and cer­tifi­cate his teacher gave him. I’m so proud to see how well he’s adapted to school life and I can’t wait to see him flour­ish! That’s all from me for now, un­til next time… happy craft­ing!
