How Much is that Cat in the Window?
I sneaked in my cat plush toy – my other products are photographic (prints, framed, cards, cushion covers and jewellery) but I thought this little guy might bring in the customers 😉 (Instagram pic)
West Norwood’s Christmas Tree will go up the first week of December and there will be a children’s workshop to make decorations – I will update when I find out more – the proposed date at the moment is the 30th November.
We are still tweaking things and plan to create some posters and have an official launch day that will feature CAKE!!! YAY.
