The Less is more approach.
Well I have to say last year got a little outta hand, true as they say … the less time you have in life … the bigger + busier your reality becomes and my business was moving in a direction that I truly had been wishing for. In 2017 I had the mindset that I wanted to wholesale to 3 boutiques + do only 2 Christmas shows, as that would totally be manageable for my lifestyle of being CEO to 3 little humans (as they really, they are my main form of employment), so as the year evolved + unraveled those desired daydreams … ended up falling into place quite organically.... however, the kicker that I hadn’t planned on was … how busy all of those avenues put together would become! The monthly feature Nogginware drops were selling out fast, other random orders were coming in + I was getting texts from la retailers saying …. We need more, more more. ONLY problem is … slow fashion is hard to produce … quickly.
Now I’d be lying if I said I was keeping it all together in an #instaperfect way. I wasn’t sleeping great, the kiddo’s were driving me nuts, because I was driving them nuts + for a lot o it, and our whole family (like everybodies) seemed to be stuck in a vicious cycle o sickness/germs/cooties …. but on the other hand, I was feeling ecstaticly exhausted that this tiny business was getting places! Enter the now, its my favourite time o year ... a fresh new beginning called the NEW YEAR. I took me some time over the Christmas break and just really unplugged from everything, put my hardcore thinking cap on to try + figure out how to change things for the better in 2018….. and I came up with quite the A grade gooder’s!
The biggest being … the LESS is MORE approach!
Social Media … well I have a love/hate with the sport, so I will be in fact spending less time hanging out on our insti/FB + more time … well ….LIVING! Perhaps it could be Social Media “algorithm” suicide, but I’m going to do a little experiment for a year + only post positively topnotch stuff instead of daily fluffy fillers, that quite frankly are a full time job in itself (Did I mention I really love sewing!). So make sure to turn your notifications ON for sparkyjoneshats , and be sure to sign up for our Mailing List, as that’s where we’ll be focusing our lovely energies + attention + scrumptious news. Like I’m meaning sign the hell up RIGHT NOW!!!
Secondly, this place is about to become a whole lot more COLOURFULLY WONDERFUL. I’ll be taking my love o colour, sewing + life (including my little people) in some new whiz bang directions, but it could just take a little more o my time + efforts to make Sparky Jones that little more delicious, but hey … extra yummy is worth a touch o patience in my books.
And lastly, this tiny team is slowly growing, thank my lucky stars some lovely souls have entered my life who unbeknownst in the beginning, are as anally retentive + particular as moi. Enter happy dance like a rockstar with shiny glittery shoes, as now i’ll be able to grow this quality handmade Noggin topper dream with some awesome HELP, extra love + sanity in my back pocket – Ya Ya Yipty!!!
So just as a recap … this topnotch tiny Nogginware biz is about to get a whole lot more fanfuckingtabulous by focusing on less + achieving WAY MUCH more with a side of COLOURFUL ... how ?… well sista ... you gots to stay tuned + sign up to get on our Mailing List, yes this is like the final reminder to get on the.
