Radha's Big Christmas Eve Speech

To end on a high, I did a live speech on Christmas Eve across Instagram and Facebook, to look at the year gone by, reflect on the ups and downs as a parent and spread some Christmas joy. A replay of this can be seen in our Facebook group.

Pop up Shop @ The Windmill (Wymondham)

Despite a very socially distanced few months we managed to make it to the Windmill for one last Christmas blowout sale before closing our books for 2020.

Record Sales during Christmas 2020

We were so pleased, and overwhelmed by our customers' support during November and December. We make record sales despite lockdown and are optimistic about the growth of Create and Engrave going into 2021

Our New Facebook Group

We are expanding our horizons and growing as a business. One of our next steps is going to be looking at STEM toys, and wooden models for children. We have created a Facebook group for parents for school aged children, and already it is filling up nicely, with a buzzing atmosphere! Join here

Christmas Cottage Giveaway

We held a giveaway for our first ever 3d model and gave six individual prizes out to brighten up some Christmases around the country. The winners were announced in our December newsletter

We were at Wymondham Windmill this weekend (12th December 2020) hosting a "pop up shop". We don't do many bits like this anymore (and have done even less so over the last year of chaos), but we had a wonderful time, despite the grey weather.

Socially distantly we were visited by a few last minute shoppers throughout the day, and the Christmas Tree man, John, who gifted us a tree at the end of the day!

The Wymondham Windmill is a fabulous place. The locals all know it as one of the go to places in the area to catch up with friends, take the children or pop to for lunch.

They are a good supporter of other small businesses too and regularly host events and days out, which are heavily attended by the local community.

We thank them for being a great host and look forward to our next event there!

Little Crafters Subscription Boxes

The Beta launch saw a very quick turnaround for the new subscription boxes. They were snapped up by 100 parents all over the country in 4 days! We are busy behind the scenes preparing the fist boxes and readying ourselves for the full launch on 1st February 2021.

A Change in Direction

We announced to the world that we would no longer be continuing with the product side of Create and Engrave after 1 March 2021. We are focusing on our subscription boxes and are offering 20% off everything in the interim period

We met Lilo and Stitch (2 beautiful bunnies) as two separate customers some months ago, and later discovered that the two had connected with each other through social media and become very special friends! We couldn't resist interviewing them both to get the goss on their very special friendship!

Lilo and Stitch- A Bunny Romance?

Stitch:

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

 I'm a 5 year old male mini-lop cross who likes to cause mischief. I like to trip my human up every morning when she feeds me. My favourite things are parsley, raspberries and banana and head rubs of course. I like to spend my days running around the house, taking naps and spending time with my human.

 

How would your human describe your character in three words?

Cheeky, sassy and adorable.

 

How Would you describe your relationship with Lilo?

 Lilo is my best friend 🥰

 

Could a rabbit wedding be on the cards?

Absolutely, if we didn't live so far apart!

  

How do you humans feel about you two being special friends?

They love it! They're always sending videos and pictures of me and Lilo to each other. I've had lots of attention lately because I've been poorly, but Lilo has always checked if I'm doing ok ❤

 

What’s your top tip on Rabbit friendships?

Rabbits tend to live better in pairs and it can take a long time to get rabbits to bond, but sometimes bonding doesn't always work.

 

Lilo:

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a 4 year old female lop eared rabbit who is deaf, blind and have suffered a stroke. I have a droopy face on the one side.

I enjoy head rubs and love eating dinner in bed with mommy!

 

How would your human describe your character in three words?

Feisty, unique, adorable

 

How did you meet Stitch?

Our mommy’s started talking on a rabbit group and we started messaging as we are named after Lilo and Stitch

 

What kinds of things do you both do to keep in touch?

Our mommy’s talk nearly every day and send each other photos of us.

 

Do you have any plans of meeting up in real life?

We haven’t as of yet, but who knows what the future hold after covid!

 

Do you have any fun rabbit tips for our other bunny readers?

Use a lint roller to help with moulting, a rubber dustpan and brush to help with clearing up.

So there we have it! A modern day bunny Romeo and Juliet tale!

We love Both Lilo and Stitch and wish them every happiness with their beautiful friendship! They are both well looked after by their humans and have been super lucky to meet eachother too! Thank goodness for the Internet hey?!

Rabbit Awareness Week

As we have so many rabbit owner customers, we wanted to do something to mark RAW week and offer some support to the rabbit community on caring for their buns. Luckily we have an amazing brand rep, who is an expert on the field and wrote us a whole article on the subject. Get some top tips here.

Broken Biscuits Charity Fundraiser

We were introduced to this amazing charity, who do amazing work with rescue dogs, and disabled pups everyday. We couldn't help by reaching out and trying to raise some money to support them. We set a target of £200. Did we manage it? Click here to find out
