a round up!

A round up of my year, Jacques' year, designosaur's year and a year of Brighton Etsy all mashed together. Lots happened, it was FUN.

Jacques bought me a Neon light, it's my favourite thing ever, it made it to the list cos I've wanted one FOREVER and I didn't think I'd get one :D


Jacques and I went to Berlin, it was ALL THE FUN, it was a perfect mix of history/war history for Jacques and BRIGHT COLOURFUL RAVEY things for Karli.


I was invited to the very first Etsy International Captains Summit and did a talk in Berlin...

....and then London too! I dragged Rockcakes along this time and she took a pretty bad photo of me... #awkward


I went to Zambia with my family to work with young people in the schools there. It was cold - don't let anyone fool you that Africa is always hot!

May wanted to try on my gold Triceratops!

We become TV Stars and were featured as the opening shot of the first ever Etsy UK TV advert


We were part of AT Open House, that's April wearing a Sabre Tooth Necklace!


Our 2nd #CRAFTPARTY with the Brighton Etsy Team was BIGGER and BETTER with over 100 attendees, fro-yo from Lick, smellies from LUSH and bumper goodie bags!

And that's it, well it isn't obviously, I had to cut a load out else you'd be reading until 2016 and be bored out of your mind. THANKS for coming along for the ride! 2014 was AWESOME and ALL THE FUN! Here's to an awesome 2015, we couldn't do it without you guys!

ROAR!

Karli (and Jacques)
