Thanks to so many wonderful orders and lots of amazing people supporting my small business, which I am truly thankful for, it is lovely that so many people still support small businesses. I ended up working non-stop for December and the first part of January. But unlike previous years, where I just soldiered on, this year I had a plan!

I had booked a little get away with my family and fellow business friend Donna from Sew-me-me back in November, so I knew that I had a blissful few days in Dartmouth to look forward to. Dartmouth is absolutely stunning, if you haven’t visited this gorgeous part of the country I would highly recommend you do!

We walked for miles, not very restful I know, but it certainly blew the cobwebs away. The family loved it, we all ate lots when visiting the beautiful little coffee shops, and talked and laughed it was just what we all needed. And an added bonus was the weather was totally amazing too! (always a worry when visiting anywhere in the UK in January)

Whilst taking the time out it allowed me to come up with lots of exciting new plans, ideas, designs and we will also be having a rebrand in 2019!! So there will be a totally new look and feel for Charlie and Boo!

I have so many new designs ready to go up on the website, you can see two of them in the image above, but there is still lots more to come so keep your eyes peeled for that! Which will be your favourite?

You can also sign up for the newsletter over on the site too, I send a regular newsletter which is jam-packed with updates from Charlie and Boo HQ, funny behind the scenes stories, event details and the occasional special offer. If you haven’t signed up yet you are missing out!

Well, that is it from me, have an amazing weekend.


Love Claire, Charlie and Indie too x
