❄Good morning! It's frosty out there. Hope you're wrapped up warm like this little cat on its sledge.❄ We want to know a bit more about how you use instagram. Do you look at Instagram STORIES?
Some of our customers have said they don't look at them at all and others have admitted they don't even know what they are or where to find them. (Top tip: click on the pink circled profiles at the top of your feed 😉) We have tried to adjust the way we use instagram and move 'with the times' but having had a few chats with people we are now wondering if our stories are getting missed/lost? As a small business we have to make our tiny voice heard... So, please tell us! Should we be posting more to our grid if you're solely a 'scroller'? Or would that be a bit OTT for you?
Here’s a throw back to last year!! My posts may be a bit sparse from now until Christmas as majority of my orders are for Christmas gifts and I am also super busy with orders and craft fairs. But I still want to share my makes with you all so here’s one I made about 1 year ago ☺️

TMF, Number 16: Sledging
It rarely snows in England, specially in the south. We are lucky just to get a little bit of icing sugar.
So when Beast from the East met storm Emma, we were dumped with A LOT of snow. (Or we consider a lot)
My city was impassable. Noone could get in or out. Work was closed. It was officially a snow day.
Now I have NEVER been sledging. To say I had a sheltered/bubble wrapped childhood is an understatement. I always remember mum telling me its far too dangerous and my dad telling horror stories of people going into barb wire fences and/or hitting their head.
Anyway, when I told my mum I was going sledging her face was not amused. "You will break something and then you wont be able to work. What if you hit your head? Ambulances can't get to you, the roads are full of snow!" I was super nervous about it but for far too long I've let my parents anxieties and fears get put onto me.
And honestly I felt like a kid again. It was so much fun.
I'm 25 and yes, I will have a snow day.
