Being a handmade company we always find we are crazy busy at this time of year. Remember when you buy a hand made product you aren’t simply choosing a mass produced item which is picked from a shelf in a warehouse & dispatched. We hand make every product as your order comes in. This means that during busy periods such as Christmas we have to work a whole lot harder to ensure your orders go out on time, but please do allow a little longer for orders to arrive. this does also mean that a lot of care & attention is given to each & every order we produce & you are safe in the knowledge that each badge is made with love.
Just wanted to let you know that I’m still here. Since doing the 50% sale last week we have been overwhelmingly busy. A big thank you to all those who placed orders. We really do appreciate your custom.
We’re working like little worker bees to get all the orders out & clear the backlog to hang in there.
During December we ask that you allow enough time for your badges to arrive. If you are planning on ordering for Xmas please ado so ASAP x
Here are a few photos of badges that have been shipped today. There are lots of Festive orders.
Christmas spirit has come to Scotland. I have noticed some really cute Xmas displays & decorations and its making me want to get my tree up, the only sad thing this year is all my stuff is in storage 300 miles away. So we won’t be able to use our tree & decorations. We will have to help my brother with his. I am also taking my 3 year old niece to pick some cute decorations for her tree. God knows what we will come home with.
We are going to Edinburgh next weekend to visit the Christmas markets. My friend Emma is off to Germany to the Christmas markets. So jealous. I hope she brings me back something yummy :o)
We are in full Christmas Badge making swing & we have had our first mince pies of the season. :o)
Remember button badges are handmade by me & my super sweet hubby John & they make GREAT Christmas Presents :o)

Hoping these will brighten your day. I so wish i could have a dog. But sadly living in a flat its not really possible.

Busy weekend up here in Scotland. We spent Saturday at the printers then working hard in the koolbadges studio. Sunday we met my mum for coffee & then went to my brothers for Sunday lunch. I love having Sunday lunch made for me. My niece was on top form she is the cutest thing. We watched Mary Poppins & Home Alone. This is one 3yr old with great taste in movies.
Monday has been just as busy. You are keeping us busy with your Movember orders & we are starting to see a lot more Christmas badge orders too. Remember they make great little stocking fillers and are Handmade :o)
If you are trying to buy handmade gifts for Christmas this year, then our button badges would be ideal. They make great little stocking fillers or for office parties. We have updated the Christmas Badge section with lots of festive badges. Head over to the site & have a look. We have badges for Boys, Girls & Adults. Something for everyone.
All our badges are handmade to order by me & my hubby John. We would love your custom this Christmas & we look forward to seeing you over on our site :o)
There are quite a few things i look forward too during the winter, although i mourn the loss of Autumn for a few days i remember quite quickly that winter can be almost as great. (my heart belongs to autumn). So here are a few things i am excited for this winter.
What are you most looking forward too?
Being the daughter of an ex service man i have a special place in my heart for all service men & women. They do a fantastic selfless & at times thankless job. I am immensely proud of our troops . I was lucky enough to live all over the world with the armed forces & have some wonderful memories growing up that way.
This Sunday with the rest of the country i will be remembering the great brave work our troops do everyday and honouring those who don’t come home & are injured on duty. I know remembrance day is the 11/11 & i observed the 2 minutes silence then too, but there is always a service on the Sunday too.
