Be More Organic :: not only in fabrics but in life! Is one of our goals for Sparky Jones in 2016.
2015 was pretty huge for moi, I got struck by a crazy random virus that has left me with facial paralysis, we moved, our twins were born + all of a sudden I was solo parenting again, but this time with 3 little people under 3 equaling a bit fat chaotic mess. Yet on the other side was Sparky Jones – my passion + little business that finally started heading in directions that I’d been dreaming of :: wholesaling, constant sales + amazing opportunities that fell outta the sky… and yep that’s about when December happened. Dare I say … I hit the wall hard, crying + with a bonus of a coldy flu. Oh my, thanks goodness for my family being here to pick up the pieces, help me breathe again + start enjoying all the silly moments this crazy life of mine has to offer.
Its hard not to feel like you have to keep up with everybody else, ‘they say’ you should post 3 times daily on social media to keep on top, then you have to actually make your product + run a business yada yada… well forget all that keeping up with the Jones’s … I am the JONES!!! So let this be the year of slowing it down, letting things flow a little more organically + enjoying more of well … everything
Anyways, I have a few little New Years secrets to tell you about okay!
Starting with – many thoughts rocketing around in my noggin from all your responses in our survey I did a while back, but I really wanted to make sure they were solid ideas before letting them out of the bag. And the first one I wanted to tell you about, was … I’ve been sourcing beautiful organic denim/canvas fabrics to make some of our characters with. I know what you are thinking …oh yeah here we go, there’s going to be a price hike. Well no actually, being sustainable doesn’t + shouldn’t actually cost you more! I’ve figured out some ways to keep my business ideals and standards in place, yet still be able to offer gorgeous unique characters.
Now one of the biggest tidbits that surprised me most from our survey, was the wanting ‘colourful options’ - your responses… went off the survey charts!!! Thank you Thank you Thank you I love that we all love bold exciting colours schemes!!
So without further ado, I wanted to introduce you to our new scrumptious Organic indigo denim. What makes it doubly delicious is that it was sourced from a Canadian supplier – happy whistle!! There will be custom order springtime Nogginware being added to the shop in the next couple o weeks with a couple o surprises!
Au Revoir my Friends
