June was a busy month with Teacher Gifts, Sleeping Owls and Father’s Days Frames. Current turnaround times for Box Frames is 1 week and for wooden gifts is approximately 3-4 weeks. I have a lot of orders coming in for Christmas Eve Boxes so I promise to have these up on the Online Shop very soon. I have already agreed with my Supplier the allocated number of Christmas Eve Boxes I will be getting this year so it will be on a first come first served basis. I will be adding more Christmas crafts to the Online Shop in stages as they become available to order so keep an eye out for deadlines.
There are lots of new #prettythingsinside Jessica Loves at the moment. My homewares pick of the month would have to be the Blossom Tea for One Set €18 and the Blush & Mint Geometric Range of Frames and Key Boxes. Furniture Paint will be landing at Jessica Loves mid July so I will finally be able to get stuck back into some Reloved by Jessica Projects!
On Wednesday 7th June, I was invited up by Nicola Lucey of the Youghal Community Health Project to run a Craft Workshop for all the lovely ladies in the Carers Group. You can read all about our evening and the work the YCHP do for the community of Youghal here.
On the 8th June, my fabulous new Assistant Emer starting working at Jessica Loves – Hooray! I mean how haggard do I look in that pic – she was badly needed in my life!! I will be taking full advantage of Emer during the summer period and might take a little sneaky break before the Christmas rush starts up again in August. Thanks to Emer, Jessica Loves is now open 6 days a week 10am – 4pm.
On the 28th June, I received a very exciting email to tell me my Blog has been nominated for an Amara Interior Blog Award 2017 for Best Craft Blog Eeeek! I know I will be up against some very stiff and talented competition but if I could just get to the Shortlist stage I could be jetting off to London for the Awards Ceremony in October!! Imagine!! The Voting Stage starts on the 7th August so I will be tormenting you all with my #sendjessicatolondon campaign then! In the meantime, you can view the Amara Blog Awards Timeline here!
I hope you all had a lovely June and I also hope the weather stays great for July – it better as it’s my birthday month!
