Record Breakers…

It was a whole series of Record Breakers this week …

1) The youngest participant in a session = just 2 years old

2) The most participants in one session – a grandma, an auntie and two adorable children = 4 ‘arty farty’ participants

3) The most sessions on one day = 3

4) The most visitors/participants in one day = 8

5) The first time that Monty Don, of Gardeners World fame, has appeared on a T-shirt leaving The ThreadShed Fresh East

A great day – I loved it all and I really hope that there will be more record Breakers to come – after all “dedication, dedication, dedication is what you need.”

Branded!!

We love doing different things here at Trashcan Emporium and so we were thrilled when a fabulous local ceramic artist ‘Lesley Badger Ceramics’ asked if we would brand her little car. Lesley provided us with her regular business card and we just replicated the info, and of course her cute little badger logo, on the back of her car. It really is instant and free advertising and we were so pleased to be able to help another local artist. Oh and what a backdrop to the photos huh?

By the way her work is simply beautiful and you can check it out here…

Now wondering what else I can put in the badges! Maybe some of Lee’s art? Maybe some swearing? Maybe something else? Send my some ideas and if we pick your idea I’ll send you a few free badges with your design on …
