Grey Saturday Chr*stmas Fair

Not been trampled in a Black Friday orgy of LCD TV-mania? CHECK!

Been paid? CHECK!

Need a Happy Bottom ©? CHECK!

Live in Bristol? CHECK!

Have friends/relatives/ a pet/ under-rated co-worker? CHECK!

Then I TOTALLY know what you need to be doing tomorrow. Made In Bristol’s Craft Fair is on from, I dunno, about 10 in the morning til about 4 ish, depending on the ley lines etc. in the foyer at The Colston Hall. It’s free to get in but if spotted, I might not let you leave without my crack squadron of pickpockets relieving you of your heard-earned pennies. Bring your pennies and your bo-squiddlies and your paypal deets cos you NEED to SHOP LOCALLY this Christmas. It’s what Santa would want, (spoiler alert) if he ACTUALLY EXISTED.

I will be there, flogging some cushiony things and my new Ercols. Come and marvel at my stitching and the bags under my eyes.

LOVE YOU GUYS (might’ve been in the workshop too long).

PS Every purchase gets a FREE BESPOKE PAPER BAG. Does my generosity KNOW NO BOUNDS?

Freelance Fridays

I love my job. I know, I’m a lucky gal. I ESPECIALLY love Fridays. As a freelancer I get, well, no holiday pay. No sick pay. No guaranteed income. No pension. None of that. But, on the plus side, on a sunny Friday, I can go ‘sod it’ and put away the chaises I’ve been working on all week (more of that later) and do my own thing. This Friday, I ‘refreshed my shop offering’. Sorry to be talking like some pr*ick out of The Apprentice, but all that means is, I tarted up some cushions and posted them. This is in anticipation of Chr*stmas Craft Fairs and pressie buying. You, my Dear Reader, can beat the rush.

Ch Ch Ch Ch Check It Out.

I think I can safely GUARANTEE* these cushions have cloud-repelling properties and will keep you happy as the nights draw in.

Time to PANIC

I don’t want to rock your boat, but you’re TOTALLY RUNNING OUT OF TIME to get a certain special other half/ mother/ mother-in-law/ dad/ sibling/ spoilt pet/ boss/ your good self a hand-made, cruelty-free, GIFT.  There’s been a bit of a last-minute flurry- but I’ve still got some l o v e r l y cushions for your happy bottoms (not all of them are on the website). Come and try ’em out- I’ll be at the workshop, in town, quite a bit this week. I’ll also be harnessing the reindeer and doing a drop of deliveries later in the week if you’re bed-bound and don’t trust the Royal Mail.

Happy Bottoms

As part of Tickety-Boo’s mission to make everyone more comfortable, we are having a quick clear-out, I mean, a seasonal sale. 20% off all cushions on checkout with the code: HAPPYBOTTOMS. We have also discounted some other items because, frankly, the workshop is becoming a hazard with all the furniture in it, in various states of undress. Make me an offer. We need the money- the kitten is eating us out of house and home and the boy is expecting LOTS of lego come Christmas.

Remember: we all deserve HAPPYBOTTOMS.

Merry Christmas from Kitty

Tickety-Boo at Trinity

I told you I’ve been busy. No boy + diet coke + shelves of fabric + avoiding looming self-assessment deadline= MORE CUSHIONS. Perk up your bottom without doing any exercise at all. Check out the shop for more winning combinations. You know you want to. Just have a little browse instead of doing your work/ your self-assessment.
