Progress continues on the plans for the 'do'. I had a meeting last week with the local charity B.A.S.H who are supporting the event and they have now given me a copy of their logo which needs to go on the advertising material- after that?-all systems go. I will add the logo to the sign-up forms which should make them ready next week. I have been thinking more about creative ways to promote the event and have contacted the local Adult Education marketing department. I have offered to display their September prospectus at the event in return for them displaying posters advertising the 'do' at all their centre across Kent, which is nice!
I have also been thinking about goodie bags. Lots of people have kindly expressed an interest in this event who cannot actually make it in person, well I plan to make up 60 goodie bags to give out at the event and if anyone would like to send cards, products, fliers, anything really, in any number, I would ensure they were shared out across the bags. It would be a good way to get your name into the minds of people who are already hand-made fans. If you are interested, please leave a comment with your e-mail and I'll be in touch.
On the subject of giveaways I am having a little one on my own personal blog so pop over if you'd like a chance to win the hair ties!


  1. I can supply lots of business cards to go in goodies bags and possibly some freebies - don't know if I could stretch to 60 though but I could have a go! Also if you are doing a raffle etc then I would be willing to give a prize/gift voucher for my Folksy/Etsy shop! Let me know :)

  2. There will be some Daisie goodies on their way to you as soon as I'm organised (ha!).

  3. Hi There,
    I have just found your blog- what a great idea !
    I have some Moo cards I could send for your bags if interested and could donate a prize too - let me know I can be contacted at

  4. Hey Jen,

    can I send some cards and also some stitch markers (not sure I have 60 sets of markers though so might have to be randomly distributed)


  5. I would be interested in sending business cards and some goodies.
