Read about a typical mumpreneur at Family Friendly Working

I was lucky enough to be featured in Antonia Chitty's Family Friendly Working blog this week!  If you want to have a glimpse into the life of a typical work-at-home-mum (or if like me, you're just plain nosey) have a look:

Whilst you're there you can do a lot worse than have a look at what Antonia has to offer.  She's an amazing PR expert and writer, and has been a great source of inspiration to mumpreneurs and business mums all over in recent years (myself included).  She's so good at what she does in fact, that she won an award for it this month.

Personalised Chocolate Bars for Christmas


The perfect stocking filler for chocoholics of all ages, and a great alternative to a Christmas card, we now have personalised Christmas chocolate bars.  My particular favourite is this trio of Santa, a snowman and Rudolph.  Either they are very surprised, or they are singing a Christmas carol!

Take a look at the rest of our Christmas items including party bags, fillers and mugs in our Christmas section.

New Personalised Party Bags for Halloween


I'm delighted to share with you some of the new  personalised party bag designs created exclusively for us by very talented graphic artist, Suzanne Washington.

The first lot of new party bags are for Halloween and feature a witch in full flight (shown left), a graveyard scene complete with tombstone, spiders and a ghost, and finally a group of rather cheeky looking pumpkins!

All these personalised party bags are made from recycled kraft paper and can be customised with your own message.  They make perfect Halloween party bags and are also great for trick or treaters for storing their goodies in!

You can see these bags in our personalised party bags section, and also our Halloween section.

How to fill a party bag for very little money, and still impress!

We've all been there.  Junior comes home from a party with a party bag full of broken bits of plastic (or even worse - a plastic whistle) and additive-filled sweets, most of which end up in the bin.   Some of us (myself included), harrassed and overstressed, have also been guilty of including such items in their own party bags!

Wouldn't it be nice to be given a party bag that contains items that both parents and kids love?  Wouldn't it be even better if this party bag cost about the same as (or less than) the junk-filled one?  You don't need to spend £5.00 or above on a party bag to impress, because we've come up with some really cool, affordable party bag filler ideas.
