Much as I love searching out and presenting fabulous creative items for Artful Kids (must be the museum curator in me) there’s nothing quite as satisfying as designing and creating products of my own. Of course it’s a time-consuming activity, especially trying to do it alongside all the myriad other tasks that are so essential when building and running a business, not to mention juggling it all with family life. All of which means that the pace of development for my own products and ideas can sometimes be frustratingly slow.
So I am particularly pleased to finally be able to introduce my very first Artful Kids kit, the Pocket Eco Sketch Kit, which combines a recycled mini sketchbook with a set of 5 fairly traded twig pencil crayons, all packaged in recycled hand made paper and bound with rustic twine.
Hopefully this will be the first of many since I am currently working on a few more ideas which I hope to be able to get off the ground this year. Watch this space!
