Instead of an I Heart Monday post, I thought we could take min and give you all an update on what we've been doing! I feel like there has been a lot of really exciting things happening lately, and sharing IS caring.
Last week we updated the whole look of the blog, and this week we've been focusing on the Facebook page. We've activated the 'review' section of the Facebook page! I am so excited for this! If you've bought something from The Barmy Fox, I'd love to hear about it, so head on over and let us know what you think! I've made so many bags/burp cloths/bibdanas, and would love to see how you've used them (plus who doesn't love photos of babies?!). Send us a photo of your item in action!!!
Below are a couple photos of my booth in the craft fair this past weekend. I am so thankful that so many of my friends and family came to support me and the other artisans who had their goods up for sale. Not everything was handmade, but I was definitely not the only one who had handmade goods. The weather was not on our side, but some people did come out to purchase some holiday gifts and I am so appreciative!! I had such a good time making all these things over the past week (yes I made everything on the table in one week) and feel that I definitely have the right job! I've added a few new things to the shop, mainly hand painted cards and embroidery hoops. The embroidery hoops can be customised any way you'd like, just send me a message!
Another huge thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday!!!!
After investigating shipping options from the UK to the states, I have concluded that it's way less than I thought it was going to be-so THE SHOP IS OPEN AGAIN! I am not opening the etsy shop yet, because of issues with pounds to dollars and bank accounts etc, but I AM taking orders for the holidays starting now!
I am taking orders for the holidays starting today!! I reckon it will take about ten days for your package to arrive, so order early to ensure it comes before the holidays! You can order through Facebook or through the 'contact us' tab on the blog. Just let me know what you are looking for and I can make it and send it!
Also, within the next couple days, the blog will officially be one year old! (gasp!) Happy birthday to us!!! I cannot believe it has been a whole year since I started this! Sooooo, for our birthday we are giving out pressies - which is super good news for you! Be on the look out for coupon codes and special monthly promotions (just in time for the holidays!)
Finally...saving the best for last!!!! David and I have welcomed a new member of the family!!!! Meet Jessie! She's part Husky, and (they think) part short haired collie. We got her from the Birmingham Dogs Home about a month ago. She's between 8 and 10 months old, and loves to play, sleep, eat (repeat). Some days she's pretty naughty, but most days she just wants some love. She's snuck cookies, pears, and loves the occasional stick for dessert, but man is she cute. She also likes to get into places where she's not meant to be (i.e. the sofa, the rubbish bin, and every cabinet you open) but then she looks at you like "Look at how cute I am!" so I have to snap a photo before telling her off.
Check back tomorrow for our first promotion (it's going to be a good one!) and don't forget to leave us some love!!
