Life lately | February

Fiona Fawcett

i definitely say this every month but... where did february go? i can't believe we are now in the third month of 2016 already!

february always feels a bit of a strange one for me; being the shortest month and still very much in those winter vibes of freezing cold short days and long nights. however this year has seen the sun shining into the studio and daffodils popping up early with Spring well and truly on it's way!

we were super excited to launch our new website in middle of the month! after a few technical issues pre christmas with our old site, we knew it was time for an update and to create a cohesive brand online. so thank you if you've fed back to us what you think, we love the new site and it should make it much easier for you to shop your favourite things!

we've also been getting the ball rolling on stand designs and layouts for our two trade shows this year. we'll be at Pulse and home & gift, with a brand new collection launch. it seems like two minutes since our first trade show last year! february also saw us kick off our retail shows, booking reetsweet for easter weekend! if you're around leeds at easter, pop by and say hello!


we spent a weekend in lovely saltaire with the snow!

we took part in the etsy resolution, a free four week programme to get the most out of your etsy shop. we've had our etsy shop open right from the beginning of plewsy, when it all started with six greetings cards! in all honesty we have never made the most of the opportunities that etsy has to offer, so it was an unmissable opportunity to learn a lot more about how to be much more productive and effective with our product listings! it also provided a great  online community to chat to other designer makers! thanks etsy!

we had a poorly pup at the beginning of the month, but still managed to get out into the sunshine for some winter walks! one of our favourites is around the easby abbey/richmond river loop, on which you pass our ace new stockist - the station at richmond - where you can now find plewsy cards and mugs!
