RC Update

It’s been a busy couple of days and sadly not because of Roo’s Corner! 

I finished work on Monday for 12 days and I can safely say, I’m happy to do nothing for that time! 

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a lovely day and lots of lovely presents. I’m currently sat in the departures lounge of Bristol airport and I’m so excited to see sun and sand. We’re heading out to Blanes, Spain until the 8th. 

Although orders won’t be processed until the 9th, I’ve got the iPad and sketchbooks at the ready so work will be getting done- Despite wanting to do nothing, it was hard not to bring them along too! 

Take a look at our week in pictures 

Monday 9th May

Hi all!

We can’t believe how fast this year is going, I’m sure May will be over before we know it, despite this we are trying to enjoy spring as we go! 

As seen in previous post on both here and Instagram, you’ll see that we’re in the process of making new pouches, both collections and individual lines. We are thrilled with how the designs have turned out, it’s now just a case of making them all!

In other news, we spent today organising stock, materials and space all ready for the move downstairs to the new workbench! If you didn’t catch our post, my dad has made me a new workbench himself and we can’t wait to to get using it. (Not only of having better space to make more, but to eventually get my bedroom back!!) 

I am so very nearly finished with college, meaning I’ll have a summer full of RC. I’m already looking at possible markets to attend so keep an eye out as we’ll be posting dates and events on here as well as our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. 

Monday 25th April

Hello!

We’re back again for our Week in Pictures and we are very happy to announce a new member of Roo’s Corner. Everybody; meet Charlie Pup! Our 3 month old terrier we rescued on Saturday from The Dogs Trust. Alfie is loving having a little brother around to cause ciaos with!

It’s been a stressful week personally, but I’ve finally finished (providing it’s all correct) my portfolio for my first year of college! It was a few weeks late but we won’t talk about that.. It’s just revision to go so I’m thinking there’s more time for Roo’s Corner (Yay!)

Back to Roo’s Corner..

So this week we’ve been busy(ish). In case you missed our instagram post I am now a crazy plant lady and proud! They are making a lovely atmosphere in my room & workspace not to mention they’re make great props for product photos!

We showed our instagram followers what you could potentially get in a Random Box from Roo, we also launched a special addition to the collection of £20’s worth of lovely RC goodies! All you readers will be able to see a full blog tomorrow so keep watch!

It’s been a quiet week with lots of reading and researching- trying to get to grips with the whole ‘selling your craft online’ malarkey.

Tote Bag Offer…

It’s just a little reminder that there’s ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT for everybody to receive a free tote bag with orders over £10. SHOP ROO’S CORNER and spend £10 online and get a selected tote bag for free!

Monday Morning

Happy Monday Everyone!

OK. So this blog is going to be a mixture of everything; our week in pictures, April offer, RC update, Sunday makes and yes, that time again when we justify ourselves for being quiet lately…

Week In Pictures

I decided to take the last few days off to have the weekend filled with two birthdays and a wedding.  The wedding was absolutely stunning may I add! It’s been very busy so apologies for being somewhat non-existent over the last week or so. Here’s our week in pictures!

April Offer

We are so happy to announce our April Offer! If you follow us on instagram you may have seen us tell you about our April Offer, being a free tote bag with every order over £10!  It’s pretty good going as our hand printed tote bags are just £4.50! We’ll be explaining all in a reminder post coming later today. If you can’t wait to find out, read about it on our Instagram Post.

RC Update

The main reason why we have been quiet for so long is because we’ve been working on giving Roo’s Corner a little revamp. We’ve had the luxury of getting brand new graphics from our designer as well as a new and improved website! We would love to hear what you guys think and any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Contact us on here, any other social media sites or feel free to Email  us! Head over to our new website and tell us your thoughts.

Sunday Makes

Our newest Sunday Make that is yet to go up on the site is our hand-printed napkins! Although we may have made a mistake by telling you they’d be up by now, we’d really like to wait for an official product photo shoot so you can see them in all their glory! We are really pleased with how these turned out and we can’t wait to make more designs.

Each pack contains four hand-printed napkins with their own box, perfect to give as a gift or store them in.  We currently have two designs; Block Grid or Polka Dot. We love the way they’ve turned out, a little rustic but fab none the less!

Happy Monday Everyone!

(Happy Leap Year Too!!)

How fast is this year going?! (A sentence said every month of every year but this year is flying by already). I can’t believe it’s March tomorrow! I’ve managed to be so busy while not getting a lot done at the same time, not entirely sure how. It’s been a weird two months.

This week’s been a busy one, but we’re back and planning the next month a head. Hopefully it’ll go to plan this time…

From now on, I’m going to try practice more skills and techniques in general to get a basic idea of them. This month is all about screen printing! I was lucky enough to get one from my birthday last year and I can finally put it to good use. No doubt you’ll be seeing a lot more fabric based products once I get the hang of it.

This week has been an adventure in itself. A little road trip was needed along with a catch up with two best friends. Plymouth is especially pretty in the sunshine. Alfie and I went exploring for two hours, the views weren’t awful, and I managed to catch the sunset on the weekly trip to Stroud.

Take a little look at our week in pictures
