I hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather and darker nights?? I’m feeling like we are approaching Hygge mode in the Jamieson household. Snuggly cosy blankets, relaxing by the wood burner, sipping mulled wine… ahhhh sounds blissful! Oh, and then I remembered i’m a MAKER and all those thoughts jumped out the window! Ha!
It seems to be the busiest time of the year for us lot, the creative makers and shakers. There seems to be sooooo much going on. I’ve had a few changes in the schedule for the festivities…
I was planning on attending the Country Living Magazine Harrogate Show this Christmas, and reaching out further with the Brand, but had to make a decision to pull out, based around the family circumstances (see below*) at the time. I have been lucky enough however, to move my spot to Alexandra Palace, in LONDON for the Spring Fair instead. So not all bad!! I’m sure there will be some tickets going for attendees if you fancy coming with me!
*Mac, our son had been very poorly on return from our holiday. It transpired he was chronically anaemic, which came out of nowhere for us. Never have I known such a worry of a time and the strength of a family (and support) unit. I’m so pleased to say he is back to full health after a worrying 6 weeks. Thank you for all your support - it has really mean the world to us.
So, around the time we were being blue lighted in an Ambulance to Sick Kids (awful!), I was pulling my work favours out of the hat. I was due to shoot Sean and Sarah’s wedding the very next day, but I just couldn’t do it. I called the truly amazing Carol at Carols Creations and burst into tears… I needed a photographer, a good one, who could capture a wedding… tomorrow… Roll on an hour and we had cover in the form of the wonderful Cat Topham. I’ve never had to let someone down for work (I can’t stand pikers!), so I was very upset making the call to Sarah. But she clearly understood - such a beautiful person. And I’ll be forever thank full to friends and fellow creatives who tried to help out. Becky and Maria too x
So yes, it’s been a little mad. But we are all feeling much brighter and better and ready to roll again!
For a while now, I’ve been a little bit obsessed with starting a little social/business gathering of lovely brands. This Christmas I’ve decided to host my own Market. It’s called ‘The Colourful Edits - Winter’ 18’ and it’s a local trends affair with fun demos from talented Borderers, food and drink, and wonderful gifts to buy. It’s on Saturday 24th November at Darnick Village Hall. You can come to the morning session, ,or the afternoon session. My hope is that we get enough of you to fill the hall with festive feelings and fuzziness. You can find out more information here; www.thecolourfuledits.co.uk
I’m also hosting a Selkirk pop up shop THIS Saturday - 17th November - if you would like to pre-order by person anything bespoke, or collect something for a loved one. I will have all my Gift Vouchers available too. So if you’d like to organise Colour Analysis sessions, or Personal Styling - pop in for a chat!
My online shop is keeping us all going (my dad has become my ‘post office runner man’). I’m offering FREE DELIVERY on all orders from 25th November - 10th December this festive season (My dad isn’t included BTW!). Keep an eye out for your code, coming soon.
What else is going on? Well, I have a few styling sessions in the diary (1st Dec and 15th Dec), including my 30th Colour Analysis session this year. It’s been so lovely meeting lots of new clients and keeping in touch with their wardrobes and new confidence. I you would like a slot - please contact me.
All stockists are nearly stocked up (they will be by next weekend!), for the Christmas run. If you would like anything in particular though, please do message me or order online via bespoke ordering.
I think that’s all for now. Thanks again or all your support, orders and kind words.
Here are the wee folk who keep us on our toes EVERY DAY IN LIFE!
