Its officially Summer as we enter the month of June (however as I write this and look out of my window its miserable outside, blowing a gale and spitting with rain (after Betsy & I got drenched earlier!)
VERY EXCITING NEWS!
Those of you who follow me on social media will have seen my VERY EXCITING NEWS that one of my handmade silver keepsake charms has been selected to be showcased on ‘Just for Tiny People’s ‘ Facebook live broadcasts.
Just for Tiny People are infamous for their amazing ‘Magical Tee Pees’ and rose to fame on BBC 2’s Dragons Den 5 years ago. Effie is the founder of the company & started sewing a Tee Pee for her own daughter Alice (who is often seen in her live feeds), Effie says she wasted 20 meters of fabric sewing her first Tee Pee, however she’s now certainly found the winning formula & has a team of ‘fairies’ busily sewing her gorgeous Tee Pees & accessories!
The Keepsake Company who provided the training, expertise and ongoing support in setting up my business have been working very hard setting up this opportunity & I am so honoured to have been selected and for my charm to be showcased. I feel even prouder that the sample piece is created using my daughters very own first piece of handwriting. We have been practicing her ‘a’s’ for some time now, so we decided to try out the other letters in her name. If you have read my posts before you will know Alana’s story that she was born at just 23 weeks weighing 1lb 3oz in 2013 and was given just a 15-20% chance of survival. Shes had to fight for her existence and had to work hard at all her milestones which do not come naturally to such a small person with under-developed muscle tone & a developmental delay.
So just in case you have missed it here is the charm….and the link to purchase your own personalised charm.
