Well, it’s been a while since I have written a blog! It has been a crazy year as sometimes life takes over and unfortunately my blog and newsletters had to take a back seat, however we are back and got lots going on!
So what has been going on?
Earlier this year we were selected as finalists in the Mums UnLtd Shining Stars awards and invited to the summer event in The Hunton Park Hotel in Kings Langley on the 1th July.
We were delighted to be selected as one of the winners and this is what the judges had to say:
“This businesswoman designed and made her own product. Born from a desire to keep her son amused whilst her elder child was doing activities the PlayBag became an activity that went to market in 2015.
This is a lovely idea. The attention to detail and creativity is exceptional. This is an innovative idea which takes children into the world of imagination. The business offers great customer support. She has also shown her commitment to networking by running her own Mums UnLtd group.”
So excited to have been a part of this fantastic event ????
After having a bit of a break from our blog, we are planning to write one every second Friday, so keep an eye on our website and social media for updates.
We are also resuming our monthly newsletter to keep you up to date with developments, shows and offers etc. You can sign up to our newsletter via the link at the bottom of the blog.
We are also giving our website a bit of an overhaul this month to make it more up to date and add some new pages.
We have lots of exciting new ideas, but I’m not going to say much about this just yet, as I am still formulating the ideas and timeline ????
Big Personal Changes
For various reasons, last year we made the decision to take little fella out of main stream school last year to home educate. This was a decision that was not taken lightly, but it has certainly been the best decision for him and me. It does mean that the PlayBag Company has had to have a serious restructure. Now most of my daytimes are taken up learning lots of cool stuff and taking little fella all over the county for workshops and meet-ups (and we’re having a blast ????). He has also been helping me with my marketing by creating stop-motion animations which you may have seen popping up on Social Media and our website. You can view his latest one here : https://youtu.be/t9ZU4dUW6JI
I manage to keep on top of urgent business during the week, but save most of my major making and marketing sessions for the evenings and weekends. So apologies if my communication has been a bit sparse of late.
We have so much going on at the moment and cant wait to share it with you. Keep an eye on social media for updates.
