Crikey! It’s December already! Where does the time go? The temperature has already dropped to below zero and we got our first frosting of the season – there’s no turning back now! We’re ready to cozy up with a cuppa and put on our wooly socks… aaah, so good! Now that we’re comfortable, it’s time for our November round up. Ready for the best bits? Us too!
A peek at our Wordless Wednesday photo posts you’ll notice there are less Starbucks cups in here as we’re making a stand and not drinking there till they start paying their taxes. That’s sad for everyone, but it’s their own fault! Seems they’re starting to re-assess the way they run their business too. Good to see that people voting with their feet can still be so powerful!
We’ve run three fab diy projects this month by showing you how to turn your wine glass into a table lantern – we think this tutorial is going to come in seriously handy with the nights closing in! We also revived an old Salt Dough recipe to show you how to make some cute mittens on a string bunting for your tree 🙂 Last but not least, we shared a tutorial on how to use gold leaf to upcycle some trinkets into beautiful table decorations or kitsch n quirky ornaments for your home – this is a great way to bling up your christmas gifts! Gotta love it 😀
This month has been hugely fantastic for us and our wee business too! We got featured in Vogue Bambini Magazine , included in Etsy & Stylist Magazine’s online Christmas Gift Guide and Blog And Buy Sale’s brilliant wish list for a start! We also created our first ever window display with our giant geek glasses, which was a massive amount of fun! We brought out our new wooden brooches and were proud supporters of Movember and raised money by selling our moustaches for the cause. Phew! What a busy month!
We also experimented with our new stall layout, shared what we were thankful for on Thanksgiving, shared a giveaway for the month and had our biggest ever sale for Black Friday. How great is that? We were also delighted to have a lovely blog post about our products and packaging written up on A Blackbirds Epiphany Amazing, right?
We hope you are enjoying our blog and had a fab November too 🙂
Cant wait to hanging out with you through December!
