2022 Chrismas Ghost Drop

In December 2022 we travelled to London for our first Ghost Drop! We left 13 ghosts at various popular locations around the city, whilst also managing to take in some of the sights as we did it.

Lots of people found our little bundles, and we were even lucky enough to catch London in the snow, AND managed to see Dippy (and leave him with a little gift!), at the Natural History Museum!

Theo Paphitis' SBS Award

On Monday 13th June 2022, we were thrilled to be announced as Theo Paphitis #SBS Award Winners!

Every Sunday, small businesses around the country pitch their business via Twitter or Instagram to win a spot in Theo's SBS Business Network. We entered our tweet on the Sunday, and on Monday it was retweeted by Theo himself to his 500,000 followers!

This is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase Kent and champion other small businesses in the area, and we're so excited about what the future holds now! We'll be picking up our official certificate in February 2023 from Theo, but in the meantime expect lots more exciting developments! Thank you so much to all of our amazing supporters - we couldn't do it without you!

The Platypus Published

In 2018 I published my very first fiction story for children; The Platypus!
It's a ridiculous rhyming story with Spike Milligan vibes and has a whole load of inspiration, from Julia Donaldson to The Big Rock Candy Mountain song, but ultimately, it's a story about how being different isn't always a bad thing, and emphasises the strength of friendships, as well as teaching children about the platypus and some entertaining words!
It was inspired my time as a teaching assistant with children with special educational needs, and initially the plan was to have a whole series but I still haven't got around to writing more yet!
You can read it FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Hoping to have my horror novel finished at some point - that will definitely NOT be for children! Watch this space...

Small Business Sustainability Course

​​In October 2022 we attended the Small Business Sustainability Programme run by Small Business Britain in conjunction with the Oxford Brookes Business School. This six week programme was a fantastic insight into how to make our business more sustainable without greenwashing, and we took away a lot for the future, including a new sustainability business plan. The event culminated in a networking event at the House of Lords in London, and we look forward to attending more courses in the future in order to continue to learn and grow.

SW Londoner Interview

In August 2021 we were interviewed by the lovely Ella Sagar as part of her feature on "Crafting a Business over Lockdown"!

This brilliant article also features other small businesses who decided to turn their passion for crafting into a business during the 2020 pandemic. It was an amazing opportunity to get our own story out there, and we're really proud of how far we've come since we started in August 2020!

Lockdown was tough for everyone, but it's so inspiring seeing all of the success stories which have come from it.

Pop over to the website and read the article in full here.

VSS 365: Volume One

In September 2019 my very short story was lucky enough to be selected from thousands of entrants to feature in the first VSS365 Anthology. 
#vss365 began life on Twitter as a word prompt writing challenge, encouraging writers to write something every single day, learn new words and fit an interesting story into the space of a single tweet, which is challenging, to say the least!
It's such a pleasure to be featured amongst such wonderful authors, I'm so humbled to have been selected.
You can find the anthology over on Amazon, and it's free to read if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription. You'll find my little story with the prompt "Contact".
