Our New Adventure Begins.......

2023 was the year for us to embark on a new adventure ......we've relocated to Scotland! When we got married Roy moved down from Scotland to England on the condition that he would live there for 2 years and then we would both move back to Scotland. Well after nearly 10 years we finally got round to making that move! With the ongoing demands of our business we did not have the luxury of time to be travelling up to Scotland to work out where we wanted to be so as befitting an online business we did all our research online...

What's New in '22!

I started to write this blog post just as the New Year arrived and I loved the rhyme in the title - well it's now March and I'm only just about to publish it so it's not so new now!  Where has the time gone? Well the short answer is I don't know! Roy has been so busy creating masses of new designs and he has a new "secret" project on the go.

"I've had an idea!"

"I've had an idea" - 4 short words that make my husband groan as he doesn't know what I'll come out with next!

It may only be July but Christmas is coming....

We're in the middle of July and today the weather outside is scorching,  but for the last few weeks our minds and attention have been firmly fixed on one thing, and one thing only - Christmas!  Ready or not Christmas is coming.....and fast! I can hear your groans loud and clear - "what on earth is she doing mentioning Christmas now, the woman must be mad!!!!" On line businesses are no different to traditional bricks and mortar retail shops - you have to be thinking ahead and planning for what is traditionally the busiest season of the year. Now if...
