It feels like we've not long packed away the Christmas decorations, and suddenly it’s time to think about the women in our lives.
BEFORE WE BEGIN
I don't wish to start on a somber note, but this time of year can feel bittersweet for those of us without our Mum. I spare a thought for you, and for myself. May it be gentle on your heart.
Only One Mother - George Cooper
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundred of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of birds in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
I am excited to share how I've been working on a new addition to the Homespun Heath product range! It has long been my intention to expand my product selection, and with recent events at home, I've been able to take time out to focus on some new skills.
You have been keeping me steadily busy with your wonderful orders, so keep an eye out for my upcoming new items, ready for Mother's Day gifting!
Update coming VERY soon....
I have put together a selection of fabulous gifts from some of my favourite small businesses. That's right, no need to trawl the World Wide Web, your inspiration is right here!
Jewellery is always a sure fire way to a woman’s heart. This beautifully simple cuff bangle would make the perfect gift from little ones, with a secret personalised message inside!
Ciara at Rococo Loves Jewellery, offers a wide range of personalised items. Each item is hand-stamped to order just for you, so make sure you allow enough time.
You can find her range of sterling silver, gold and aluminium jewellery via her website - www.rococolovesjewellery.co.uk/
Every Mum treasures the latest piece of artwork, so why not have it printed on a coaster?!
Alison at Doodle Dot can help you with that! A truly wonderful token gift that every Mum will adore, and one that won’t break the bank.
You can find Alison’s bright and cheery online shop here - ww.doodledotdesignco.etsy.com/
Naturally, with Mother’s Day comes the requirement of a Mother’s Day card, and this is one I wouldn’t be disappointed to receive!
I have long admired Naomi’s talent and style. I mean, how cute? The bonus of this design, is being able to customise the wording and the number of bunnies. Always handy when rabbits multiply...
You can find Naomi’s shop, Elfin Designs over on Etsy - www.elfindesignsuk.etsy.com/
If you need to keep the small people entertained over the coming weekends, there's a lovely little collection of Mother's Day crafts over on my Pinterest boards! Please be sure to tag me if you're going to end up on a meme...."nailed it"
It's been over 6 years of me loitering in the small business world, and some of you have been here the entire time! You are my Homespun Heath family, and I will treasure your support and loyalty, always.
Have a very happy Mother's Day!
