Let’s talk about pom poms! Over the past four years, I have spent a lot of time and money researching suppliers of faux fur pom poms. I initially tried buying cheap mass produced poms on the internet and although they looked pretty, they were often poorly made and I hated the fact that I couldn’t trace their origin or place of manufacture. My biggest concern was being duped into buying real fur being sold as fake - the thought just makes me cringe (and super angry too!). In order to ensure both quality and authenticity, I currently only buy my pom poms from two trusted UK suppliers - both of whom lovingly make their pom poms from scratch by hand using top quality faux fur fabric. I truly believe that they are the best available on the market and are worth every penny. The whole cliche of getting what you pay for really does apply in this instance and so although I don’t offer the cheapest of products (let’s face it, you can buy a hat on the high street for a fiver!) you can be assured that you are buying a unique item that has been lovingly made, using materials that have been thoroughly researched and sourced - how bloomin’ marvelous! If you have any questions about the materials or suppliers I use, please do just pop me a message. In the meantime, this little rainbow beaut was made for me by Jayne from @twolittlerainbows - isn’t she so clever?

Meet the Maker - Beliefs and values, Day 3 #marchmeetthemaker @Joannehawker⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think most small businesses start developing a set of values and beliefs, principles and philosophies very early on to drive the start-up of their business, well I certainly did.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I work to three core values, passion, empathy and innovation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having a passion to better myself and my business is something I am always working on. I am a passionate individual and a fond believer that you get out what you put in.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I feel its important to drive my business with empathy, too many people tend to see things from their point of view without caring about others. I am from a predominantly medical background until recently when I left my NHS job to peruse my small business and my passion for understanding others has always been my priority. I am a fond believer that if any product is not how I would want to receive it it doesn’t leave my studio.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In relation to innovation, evolving with recent trends is important to me, being open to improvement and feedback and having a willingness to test out new ideas.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I am most definitely striving to a more eco friendly business and I am always taking steps to improve my footprint. From the start of my journey I had a need to believe in myself. I now take pride in what I have achieved and I am always grateful to you all for supporting my small business.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #marchmeetthemaker #meetthemaker #smallbusiness #valuesandbeliefs #nhs #movingon #newventures #smallbusinesslove #happytimesahead #empathy #innovation #passion #notonthehighstreet #childrensaccessories #changingmats #sensorytoys
