Half way through the year already!??
Like many people, I'm finding it difficult to believe that we're already half way through the year (Christmas will be here before we know it!). The last few months in lockdown have been strange and very busy for me, with the busiest run up to Father's Day I've ever known. Suffice to say, homeschooling has been fairly lax with a heavy emphasis on garden play and art! I'm so so grateful for all the orders and support of my small business. My notonthehighstreet shop has been red hot, and people are also ordering through my website, which is so encouraging.
Now the rush for Father's Day is over, we're in the middle of what has traditionally been known as 'wedding season'. Though there are many anniversaries to celebrate, sadly there are very few weddings taking place at the moment. My Button Wedding card is usually my best seller at this time of year but instead there seems to be a baby boom, as my Button Pram card is taking over... especially popular to send to new grandparents.
I've received some lovely reviews recently, and really appreciate the kind comments customers take time to write. Here are some of my favourites (in brackets are the designs they're referring to)...
"Adorable, cute card. Ideal for my nephew and his fiancee's first home together. Fun to send a card that was made especially for them. Thank you." (Button Love)
"Honestly one of the loveliest cards I have seen. Such high quality and the personalisation is gorgeous - the colours of the cats was perfect. I'll definitely be ordering again and have already shared with family who have also ordered. Love it. Thank you!" (Love Cats)
"So beautiful I almost cried when it arrived. Thank you!" (Button Daddy)
"My daughter was thrilled with the card! It had been made to my exact specification and they are going to frame it because it is so lovely!" (Button Family)
Thank you everyone, and here's to a wonderful summer despite the circumstances. Stay safe and be kind!
