As many of you know, I’m a Mumma to four as well as a business owner. I know many of you are in a similar situation, that is, having kids and running some kind of business, whether that be full time or a side hustle.
I have struggled for so long to try and stay organised, especially with my online presence as it’s just too time-consuming and I get swallowed in the mound of growing posts and the pressure to create original content. I’ve used calendars, I’ve used social planners, I even brought a £100 Filofax in the hopes it would keep me organised, but no.

The boys have affixed theirs to their bedroom windows, while I have situated mine on the mini window in the downstairs loo!
Canvas work is something that has been at the forefront of my mind for some time. Both in terms of business, creating and promoting my range but also from a personal point of view
It’s not something I have ever felt comfortable to step into. Me, create a piece of art? Use paints and brushes and actually have a recognisable piece of art at the end of it? No I couldn’t possibly do that.
Today however saw me step out of my comfort zone and actually put paint on canvas and bring to life some silver birch trees . I’ve detailed below what I did, why don’t you have a go?
Last Sunday I held a stall at Horningsham Fayre for the first time and I hope to attend again next year! The event turned out to be my most successful event to date yet.
The lead up was exciting, busy and exhausting as it was expected to be my busiest day with an expected footfall of 1500 people, not only that but it was the first event where I launched my pottery painting. I spent the two weeks before literally painting my house and myself in plaster of paris, making sure I had enough molds completed for the day, much to my households annoyance!
