Forward planning for a creative business often means doing things a little out of sync which is why we have some of our Christnas decorations unboxed and out already as we shot our new Christmas stockings.
This one’s my favourite designed with rainbow colour lovers in mind.

Happy Happy World Smile Day !. .
- Did you know, incidentally that we recently received trademark notices through @etsy requesting us to remove the word ‘smiley’ from all of our product descriptions. 
Has this world gone completely mad to make it on lawful to commercially use a word which describes one of the most fundamental of human emotions and expressions.?
So now this bestselling dress has been renamed sunshine dress with ‘smiling’ face. 
And yet, international law makes it impossible in some countries to challenge those who continue to counterfeit original design IP. @anti.copying.in.design .

Growing up in the era of disco and roller skates is a sure sign these designs are most definitely not accidental! ....This also has to be my favourite print just now. + did you know, I can also still be found  down at the local roller disco or gliding on my skates down empty streets on a Sunday morning.- True!

I’ve found the innocence of this photo so hard to resist by @jazzylovesbacon and remembering what loyal and gentle friends our four legged companions can be from childhood onwards. Our two lurchers have taught our children how to care for and respect animals as well as huge responsibility. Every family home should have one ( or two!) 🐾

INSPIRATION : This image sums up some of my key inspiration behind Wild Things :
COLOUR🌈: the whole spectrum.
SIMPLICITY : simple styling especially 60’s and 70’s shapes which are easy to wear.
STORYTELLING- inspiring conversation through everyday clothing.
IMAGINATION: thinking outside the realms of ordinary.
PLAY: Looking at elements to inspire childhood play and adventure.
BRITISH WEATHER- living in the Lancashire hills I’m kind of obsessed!
MY MUSE : inspired by my 3 Children especially this little miss.

ROUTINE- My average day can be quite varied but I always start with a long walk in the woods behind our house to give me some thinking space - After getting my three children up and out for school.
Time can then be split between managing emails and despatching orders, setting short and long-term goals and working to them, designing new ideas, and just making stuff.
… I always build in something to give me head space, creative space, and plenty of Yorkshire tea @yorkshiretea , but I’m never too hung up on a routine. Life can be varied and sometimes routines just stop you from going with the creative flow.
Have you joined in the daily prompts with @joannehawker for #marchmeetthemaker ?

WORKSPACE- I have a flexible working space which is centred around one large loft size home studio.I have a cutting table, which only needs to be small as everything I make is in small sizes!
Computer desk -For designing prints and managing orders –and storage, as well as space for two industrial machines and a second table for making and packing.( out of picture)
All of my stock and fabrics are stored separately in another room to free up space - And I of course work with my amazing small workshop in Scotland who house most of my stock fabrics so that we have a tight rolling programme of production to meet demand. ( Proudly UK made - check out @makeitbritish) 
I try to keep the studio light and colourful with space for ongoing design development which I can pick up whenever I need- in between managing everyday business tasks. It’s also important , however small or large your space to keep things organised as best you can.

PHOTOGTAPHY- Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots of my photography – basically I work on many levels from quick iPhonography to professional shoots – I started with very little knowledge and the friends Nikon D 80 and  some clever photoshop trickery to remove un wanted household bits and bobs from the frame.
 I met the brilliant #WillShaddockPhotography when my daughter was asked to model a shoot for @cosatto 
We’ve worked together ever since with the husband and wife team Will Shaddock and Jen Murdoch styling my book shoots and more.
📷 Top left my new amazing Fuji XT2 @fujifilm_uk which I love because of its high function and retro looks - there is a great viewfinder which flips out perfect for overhead flat lays- I use this for general studio photography. 📷 Top Right- Jen working on a larger than life overhead flatlay back in 2016. 📷 Bottom left – using simple props to create context to keep the dresses the main focus - 📷 bottom right - home studio shoot for Kirstie Allsopp’s handmade Christmas .
Oh and day-to-day photography with my iPhone 6 Plus and some really easy editing tools from the @acolorstory app - which I love.
#marchmeetthemaker Day 5 -
In short keep it simple and consistent adding simple props using a palette that suits your brand.

So whatever you do it’s a great way to connect with new like minded creatives. So this is me... the mum and creative designer behind the small and special UK made brand Wild Things. 
I love to create playful happy clothes and accessories to spark little one’s imaginations- and here to my right is my little mini me muse.( her legs don’t match I know , ...but we like that)

Have you ever longed to start your own brand and work towards a better work life balance? 
Working with skilled make it in the UK has meant keeping head creating exciting new designs and fabrics whilst maintaining high quality – & also means working with the best resources the UK has to offer.
When I began in the fashion industry it was the time of huge change and decline of UK manufacturing in favour of overseas production.
@etsy @etsyuk  and @notonthehighstreet have been the perfect platforms to start the journey.
Unnecessary over consumption and a need for products with more sustainable and transparent production has made the UK and it’s now growing specialist skill base the perfect place to start a new brand. 
You can read more about how I started over @makeitbritish .

We had the perfect walk on the moors behind our home today. Open moorland , plenty of creative thinking time and a sense of freedom.
We are also loving the freedom of this skater dress from the @welovefrugi main collection......plus her new red Blunnies! @shoeland_uk .

Here's my story- After a career designing for children for the UK market, lots of travel and a jet set lifestyle followed by lecturing degree students for 10 years, i settled for a  life of raising three wild things on the edge of beautiful woodland. Now busy as ever I involve my three children in decision making for my business( well not the critical stuff) to inspire me as I dream up new designs. They love to dress up, so this was the perfect start. Here we are den building in the woods tails and all for a shoot for #etsy .
