This is the Awesome Marketing Planner from the equally awesome Claire at The Girls Mean Business.

It is no exaggeration that this has completely changed my mindset and will change my business overtime . It helps you with every aspect of managing your business and is on offer at a 1/3 of retail price making it just £10.00! If you have a small business I give you permission to click through to here http://www.thegirlsmeanbusiness.com. Not only do you receive the planner there are online tutorials and an amazing wall chart!

Now on to the more sparkly, unicorny news! I have decided on my first make to face the CE test! this unicorn will be tweaked and tested by the middle of the summer………

 

I have sourced all the relevant material and just need to get my testing gear together!

And while we are on the subject of unicorns, in a quiet moment at our last craft fair, my super clever daughter came up with the idea of themed unicorns aimed at children over 10 and adult collectors.

The theme we have decided to start with is cake! so, I present to you ………..

I have decided on two initial designs………

On the left is Victoria sponge and on the right the gloriously named Baroness Bertha Von Battenburg! Bertha got named by my mate Shell at http://www.facebook.com/ShellsCCC, isn’t it fab!

I have all the supplies arriving for these this week including scents! Each unicorn will also have a slice of cake charm, I tried crocheting one……

But i’m not delighted with the result so I will be making one from polymer clay.

In the future there will be two more British favourites and then European favourites like macarons from the Unicorn Patisserie and American specialities from the Unicorn Bake House!

There is no doubt it has been a super busy month so when we have had a chance me and the CEO Darcey ( and VP Milo) have made the most of this……

the ancient bluebell wood that is a stones throw from WDS HQ, I wish I could give you some idea of the smell!

By next month I hope I will have sorted out a newsletter sign up which will have all the other news that doesn’t make the blog, and special offers.

In the meantime have a super day!

kisses
