Tutorial | Homemade Winter Christmas Wreath

I made a wreath to save myself pennies many years ago but this time it was a reason to use the autumn/winter change of nature as were the intention of wreaths in the past.

Tutorial | The Thrifty Christmas Wreath

I have spent a few days looking for a wreath I could buy, I have never had one before and as this is the first year in my own home & living with my partner, I decided I would like one for my door.

#SBS - Small Business Sunday

I launched my website www.classicbecca.com in September 2016 and have been working on new stock, marketing and design. I had seen #SBS on Twitter which is a 2.5 hour slot on Sundays where you can tweet Theo Paphitis (Dragons Den, Rymans, Red Letter Days) with your pitch of your small business, to be in with a chance to win Small Business Sunday (#SBS). I had considered doing it the previous week but had missed the time slot, then Sunday 30th October I tweeted Theo Paphitis. The next day I travelled to Manchester and forgot all about it, as I had no thoughts that I...
