If you’re looking for the Blythe and BJD clothes and can’t find them on my regular selling channels, don’t worry! I’ve started a partnership Restoration in Ponyland over on Etsy to exclusively sell all the clothing items through them. You can find my clothing on the Etsy page HERE, as well as some stunning restored vintage My Little Ponies.
Last year was…something right? I was struggling quite a lot over the summer and something had to change, before I got more ill. So, I made the scary decision to quit my part time retail job. I stopped working at the end of November and I feel like I’m healing slowly. It’s been so odd not going to work each week and of course I’m having doubts about working for myself full time (doesn’t everyone?) but I just couldn’t keep it up, my mental health was suffering too much. I think it was the right move in the end, I’ve got to give Angels-Cave a good proper go because it brings me so much happiness. It’s all very much outside my comfort zone, but I need to move forward and push myself to get back to being better.
I’ve got lots of plans for new items this year and I’m working hard to get everything back in stock as soon as I can. I’m still having low days when working is hard, but I’m carefully pushing myself a little more each week. The social media accounts are updated more regularly, as it’s just a quick job to post a photo, but I’m gonna try to blog more even if I have a hard time thinking of interesting things!
I hope everyone is keeping safe, and being kind to yourself and others.
Good news! I’ve bought new and stonger iron on backing, HeatNBond Ultra Hold no sew. This new backing is much stonger and won’t need sewing. I’m in the process of swaping all the patches over, but some of the older stock will have to old backing on. All orders will be sent out with the same backing on though.
I’ve added a new Ko-Fi goal for some shiny new thread colour cards! The company Wonderfil have an amazing range of threads and I normally buy them at one of the NEC shows (so I can see the colour in person) Since COVID has put a stop to the sewing shows, I want to finaly invest in some Wonderfil colour cards. Any spare change will go towrads two cards and the shipping.
I just want to thank everyone for your oders and keeping me busy! It’s been hard with everythang thats been going on in the wrold right now, but please be kind to yourselfs and rest when you can.
I’m still crafting and thankfully I have access to a post box very close to me. I’m able to buy postage online, so I can use my daily exercise to continue to post orders.
Royal Mail is still working at full speed in the UK and so far the post isn’t effected, but I will be keeping a very close eye on it. Overseas shipping may be delayed, depending on the borders and I’m monitoring Royal Mails site on what countries have a post ban.
I’m continuing to keep the best possible hygiene and hand washing, as I’ve always done and I’m trying to reduce the amount I handle any packaging as well.
I’ll keep going as long as I can!
I hope everyone stays inside, depending on your job, and keep safe.
