Print-taking & Chatter
I often wonder if people understand what I am talking about when I advertise about my upcoming print-taking events.  I mean, I’m sure many people do have an idea, as these are often very well attended.  However, I thought it was about time I actually sat down and explained a […]

Shop Small This Christmas
I have decided to shop small this Christmas, and by that I don’t mean minimal gifting.  So, what does it mean to shop small? For me, shopping small means supporting local, independent businesses and brands.  As a small business owner myself this is something that is super important to me […]

So, the Easter holidays are over and it’s my girls last term at Pre-School.  I can’t quite believe where the time has gone and that soon we will be saying our final goodbye to her Pre-School to start school.  A place where she has met new friends, grown in confidence […]
