Christmas mania!

Another Christmassy-fuelled post.

I seem to be spending most of my time glued to this flippin' laptop. If it's not sorting out orders and invoicing, it's to do website admin and other annoyances.

Actually, I'd rather be curled up on the sofa indulging in a spot of hot chocolate drinking and scoffing some lardy pastries, but apparently that's not how one carries out the working day. I'm not sure the Mr appreciates my working methods...

We now have a clever contractor who is sorting out our website angst and we're really pleased to have him on board, so a huge thanks to our new man Jay. Hurrah!

It's been all about the poo again this week (have a look at our Facebook for a Christmas give-away...)

And candy canes

We've sold out of these little minty beauties twice in the last seven days, so we're well and truly stocked up now. They look great on a Christmas tree (if you can resist eating them, that is).

We have four Christmas fairs this weekend so it's back to being busy and the skilful art of packing the car so all of our sweets and treats fit in properly (obviously I don't do the packing - I have zero spacial awareness, so the clever Mr does that for me). 

So back to not stuffing my face and working my way down my growing TO DO list. Pah.

Christmas Poo!

Hello :) It's been such a loooong time in between the few blog posts I've managed to make!

We have had a busy old year, with not much time for blogging, but I suppose it's a must these days. By the time we've added items to the website, Tweeted them, pinned on Pinterest, had a chat on Facebook and hand-packed a zillion bags of sweets, it really is time for bed!

It doesn't seem two minutes since we breathed a sigh of relief after the wedding fairs finished and now we're catapulted into Christmas. The year seems to all merge together.

Look at these cool biscuits trees from Loralee Lewis:

This is Sweet Traditions' favourite cakey lady's creation, Fairycakes By Natalie - 15 delicious cupcakes make this amazing Christmas tree.

This is one of our most popular Christmas ranges: Snowman and Reindeer Poo! The children love it and so do the adults.

Here is one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite Christmas movies: Love Actually since we're approaching Christmas!
