Hello everyone, welcome to my first ever blog... like ever!
So lets start from the beginning...
So its been a pretty rough ride over the past few months and its taken its toll on us all in one way or another.
When lock down hit I didn't really process what that would mean and the consequences that came with it. Don't get me wrong I am all for the procedures we've had to follow over the last few days..weeks..months...Cripes I don't even know which month we are in, days seem to merge into one.
So what did that mean for my business? So for those who don't know, I run a business called Animalia Encounters.. YES! I have the best job in the world :) I get to take my animals to work with me! I visit Care homes, schools, birthday events, brownies groups, after school clubs etc etc. As you can imagine, keeping animals isn't cheap and I rely on my visits to help pay for their up keep and care. I also work at a restaurant a couple of days a week to cover my own expenses. With neither of these being possible at the moment I had to think of a way to keep safe, make money and stay busy. This is how Naughty Gnomes came about. I have always been creative and I put my skills to the test.. posted my garments on line and before you know it, I was getting lots of interest..People were loving my stuff! RESULT!
I have always day dreamed about making children's clothes and being able to design my own wardrobe for my own children one day... Yep that's right, i have created a children's clothing line in lockdown, with no past experience and no children to use for props.. i must be crazy! But i love it! Welcome to my page and thank you for reading my first blog x
