The Rain Dance…

Every ceramic painting studio in the country is currently doing or is exhausted from doing ‘The Rain Dance’ ☔️. Other than people selling umbrellas I think we are the only people regularly praying for rain 😂. Easter has been much quieter than usual, with most people...

Drama Drama

So on my last blog I said I’d be starting up a new Instagram account which will be updated more regularly than I do my blog... it’s live 😁! I’ll still be blogging now and again but I’ll hopefully be updating my new Instagram blog every day with what shenanigans I’m up...

Happy Mother’s Day

I’ve discovered I’m really terrible at blogging... every blog starts with ‘it’s been a while’ 🙈. I just never seem to be able to find a spare 20 minutes... so my thoughts are that I’m going to create an Instagram account that’s all about what I get up to each day, I’m...

Dreams come true…The MARAS 2018

Well what can I say, it has been one of most amazing weeks we’ve ever had since opening in 2015. I’ll start with what I’m most proud, honoured and still in shock about…last night was the Manchester Arndale Retail Awards 🏆, we knew we were up for nomination for Best...

Bolton Here We Come…

Lot's has been happening since my last blog... my most exciting personal bit of news is that my bestie has had her baby (the one I went to see in Dublin on my last blog), she's named Georgia and is absolutely beautiful. When I heard the news I couldn't resist but pay...

Painting Shenanigans

I would describe this week as one of painting... it started last Sunday morning when I sat on the sofa (like I am now) and decided I no longer like our living room... Paul no longer puts up resistance as he knows once I have a bee in my bonnet that’s it (poor bloke). ...
