Hope you’re all doing ok?!
As always it’s been crazy busy here at Pixies Attic! Firstly though I’d just like to start by saying a huge thank you to you as I received soooo much love and messages from my last blog. Here is the link: https://pixiesattic.co.uk/believe-it-dream-it-achieve-it/
It really means alot and I’m so grateful for the kindness alot of you have shown!
If you follow me on social media you will have seen a video of me with my wooden chicken in wellies Haha. Apologies in regards to the music, there wasn’t much choice Haha andddd it was the first one I have done!
I started a YouTube Channel last year, and I’m hoping to build it up this year. If you’re on YouTube I’d love it if you could subscribe to my channel or even like my videos as this would help more people see me.
Here is the link to my YouTube Channel https://youtube.com/channel/UC34gQ_rwrf5X1VZPO6pkudA
I will say though, some of the videos quality are hit and miss, it plays ok when I watch it however it seems to differ with a different device so please bare with me on that as I’m learning Haha.
I will be hoping to upload a new video on my channel every week so that’s something to look out for! As my confidence grows you will actually see me at some point Haha.
I do have to give a shout out to my son Kayden, he’s 13 years old and bless him he has been editing my videos for me and adding the music (I haven’t a clue what I’m doing haha) so I have gave him the job of helping me with my videos etc as he is very good! A little bit of delegating some of my jobs haha.
Alot goes on here behind the scenes so I want to attempt to record and give you abit of an insight of what goes on. It’s not just about taking photos and uploading them… I wish it was that simple Haha. I’d love to show you so much and it’s quite nice for you to be able to see.
Generally it is solely me, however I do have help from my husband as he cuts alot of the freestanding items for me and takes parcels to the courier drop off point and now my son is helping me with videos & editing! Not forgetting my eldest daughter Abi, she helps with sketches too.
The rest is me:
•Planning & Designing New Products (this is either drawing or working with software, then I need to size them properly)
•Uploading items to Website & Etsy
•Writing Product Descriptions
•Designing image graphics I put on Social Media
•Packing Customer Orders
•Ordering wood and packing materials
•Printing Customer Orders
•Keeping Customers upto date
That is just abit of what I do, there is sooooo much more I could list.. including Accounts haha but it would be a huge list 😂 If you’re a small business reading this you will know exactly what I mean!
On top of that there is also trying to keep on top of the housework, school runs, do my workout etc. It does get abit harder when it’s half term but I manage and get everything done in a fashion Haha.
Luckily I don’t have to install updates and back up my website as I have the lovely Laura over at Laura Morris Digital who takes care of that for me every month! Phew!
If you’ve made it this far thank you Haha, I felt like I went on and on for this one!
On that note, I need to get school uniforms sorted as mine are back at school tomorrow!
Until next time,
Take care & stay safe…
