Cast your minds back to February if you will. Yknow we were all going to the pubs theatres hugging friends making plans and face masks werent a thing. Happy days. sigh Well a customer ordered a papercut for a wedding that was to take place on the 25th April. It featured a cute little tandem. They were all excited. Then BOOM! That naughty virus took hold and the world locked down. Cancelled weddings left right and centre. I posted about it in April as I was scrolling through my photos and I…

Who run the world? GIRLS.   Oh how I wish that was true. But I fear that no matter how far we think we have come its still very much a patriarchal society.   You lovely lot my followers are 91% female and the other 9% are pretty super cool forward thinking men. So I dont mind having a rant. May I rant?  Men still earn more than women across the board. Women are penalised constantly for having children. Giving up on a career (or moving sideways) when that body clock comes a ticking.

Today was quite the milestone for me - my 10th anniversary of my @notonthehighstreet shop opening. A lot has happened over those 10 years I can tell thee.   I had my third baby. In fact I was 4 months pregnant when my noths shop opened. I took early maternity leave from my proper job in October 2010 so I could concentrate on getting the orders out that I was doing in my spare time. I also agreed to go into their Christmas gift guide that year with the baby die on Christmas Eve why the HELL… Christmas Gift Guide, Christmas Eve, 4 Months Pregnant, Proper Job, Third Baby, 10 Anniversary, Paper Cutting, 10 Years, Thats Not My

It seems like a lifetime ago I grabbed all I needed one evening before lockdown locked up the shop and said goodbye. Resigned to working from home for the foreseeable. Just as Im sure many of us have had to do.   At the time I didnt know if I would even be back. I didnt know how I could pay the rent on a shop not allowed to open. How I could  frame package and post orders when Id had the letter from the NHS advising me to shield.   I pivoted. Man did I fucking pivot.  I went from selling… Lock Up, Paper Cutting, Letter, Frame, Outdoor Decor, Shopping, Instagram, Picture Frame

So today marks the day when non-essential shops can open again after 3 months of lockdown. What does that mean for my little shop?   Firstly my shop is blimmin tiny! So when I do reopen it is likely to be one customer at a time or indeed by appointment only. Ill be doing a click and collect for online orders as well as the usual postal orders.   Yeah ok but when?! Well Im glad you asked Im immune suppressed due to medication Im on - so Im still on the shielding list as high risk.

I cant even begin to tell you how thankful I am of all your orders of my templates since lockdown.   Pivoting (PIVOT! anyone else cant help but think of Ross?) a bricks and mortar shop selling products and workshops to only selling templates was always going to be somewhat of a challenge!   So I just want to thank each and every one of you budding papercut artists for downloading one of my templates from Etsy or placing a personalised order on my website (like the monogram and name above)… I Cant Even, Bricks, To Tell, Paper Cutting, Workshop, Told You So, Challenge, Thankful, Monogram

Hello my gorgeous lovelies!  In the light of the uncertainty in this strange old time we're living in I thought it best to postpone my upcoming workshops. this includes the three next week and most probably all of April's workshops. I will reschedule a new date convenient to you when this craziness is under control/blown over.  I'm also happy to refund you should you wish of course (but as a small business in the face of global recession I would appreciate rescheduling obviously! heaven… Hand Symbols, Little My, Mirror Image, Colored Paper, Dark Colors, Handmade Crafts, Paper Cutting, No Time For Me, Just Love
