Hello!! I hope you’ve had a lovely weekend. So good to see the sunshine again.
Today’s blog post is a good ol’ catch up, letting you know what’s going on with the new kit, some exciting news and I have a fun recipe at the end too. It’s a fun blog post today!!
So first up, I am so excited to be celebrating 6 months of Lollipop. It’s gone by so fast. I really wanted the 6th kit to be a special one. Like a ‘thank you’ kit. I’m saving lots of the details as a surprise but I think the sneaks so far give you a good feel of this kit. It’s a cutie!! ‘Once upon a Story’. Who doesn’t love a toadstool??!!
On the 1st October I have lots of exciting details to share. Exciting for our lovely existing subscribers and also for anyone wishing to take out a new subscription on the 1st. Quite often the specials are just geared around the new subbers, I wanted to treat everyone this month though, not just the newbies.
Details will be announced on the 1st October…so stay tuned!! It’s exciting!!
I thought it would be a good time to update you a little on the new ‘Once upon a Story’ Kit.
I’d already finalised this new kit and the September Kit had just been shipped. I was going through my sewing basket and found this gorgeous fabric that I’d forgotten all about. I bought it ages ago with no purpose in mind, I just loved it and had to have it. It just goes so well with this months kit, so I ended up making these large fabric topped paper clips. Aren’t they fab!! I’m thinking planners, diaries, book marks…. Love them!! There will be one in each October Kit.
One of our collaborators this month is the lovely Charlotte from Blueberry Crafts. I’m such a fan!! I was so thrilled when all these handmade toadstools arrived handmade by Charlotte. Secretly I want to keep them all to myself…..But I know I need to share the fairy love around. There will be one in each kit in October. I’m attaching a mini chain to each one so that you can attach them to your bags, purses, planners, keys etc.. They are so cute!
If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you will have seem all the little froggie pegs that I made last week. I need to keep my froggie eyes on them. Every time my daughter walks through the studio she eyes them up!
Please do follow us on facebook or/and instagram….you will receive lots of updates this way. We also have a private chat group here. A great way to chat craft, planners and kits and it’s just for our Lollipop gang.
I’ve loved seeing all your posts about the Coffee & Cupcakes kits so far. It pleases me so much to see what you’ve been creating. Thank you so much for sharing. This kit has sold so well. We had just 2 left at the weekend, but I’ve managed to put a few more together and we have 8 now. You can buy one here if you wish. You can read some happy customer comments here.
I’ve also gone through this weekend and had a final count of what’s left of the previous kits which you can see here.
May – Alice’s Tea Party – Sold Out
June – Bon Voyage – 3 left
July – Over the Rainbow – 1 left
August – Wings ‘n’ Things – 2 left
So if you’ve been thinking about them or you missed one….now’s your chance. We won’t be making up any more of these. They also make great gifts. We can include a free gift message if you would like one sent to someone.
It was such a lovely sunny weekend, we decided to have some fun and make Ice Coffee Floats. It was so yummy!!
Simply add some crushed ice in the bottom of your jar. 2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream. 2 shots of coffee and top with milk. Mix. I also added some toffee hazelnut syrup for some added sweetness. It was delish!! You could have a play around and add different flavoured ice creams or syrups. It’s such a refreshing way to enjoy a coffee.
So after today’s mega post, I think that’s it!! If you’ve stayed til the end, thank you : )
Do keep your eyes peeled for the fun announcements on the 1st October.
Happy Monday to you xxxx
