Lockdown, Fundraising and Getting Ready to Move House!
I haven’t written a blog post for my website in months! It’s been a weird time for everyone I know, but at first in this whole lockdown thing, I struggled to get my head around our new way of life and just stopped taking orders at all. By the time 6 weeks had passed, I was going a bit crazy without it and some friends asked me to make them some face masks. I thought I would do a charity fundraiser for it and ran that for a month. I raised £644.77 for NHS Charities Together and donated the money on Saturday 6th June.
I had no idea I would make so many face masks this year and I initially thought I’d only reopen for orders for a few weeks before we found out a date to move house. I posted about stopping orders so I could pack and sort the house but moving wasn’t as imminent as I thought and we are still waiting to hear an official moving date! It’s been a long and frustrating journey with our house move (whose isn’t?!) but I finally think there is a light at the end of it all and it is actually getting closer. We have been waiting around waiting for news and I have a feeling that we are going to suddenly get a call that it’s all happening and then there will be panic! So, I’m going to leave my website up and running for the next week and then I’m hopefully going to pause orders for a while, just while I get packed and sorted for the move. I will still be on social media, DM’s and emails so please contact me if you need anything and I’ll see what I can do!
We are all very excited about moving house! It isn’t far from where we are now but it’s going to mean an exciting new craft room for me! My current craft room has never been decorated and I’ve tried to make the best of the space I have but it is starting to take over the whole house, so being able to confine it to one space will be a relief for all of my family!
What I will be doing over the next few weeks as I’m sorting out, is selling some ready to go stock that I have already made up. So there will be a stock clearance sale very soon! I know I have a stock cupboard with some made up reading cushions, bunting, chalkboards, bibs and pencil wraps. So watch this space!
