Made My Day

A couple of days ago, our local Mums in the Know website featured a fantastic review of my business, written by one of my lovely customers. It reads..

hannah's pic‘I always like to keep a stash of cards in my top drawer. Being a busy Mum of two and running my own business time always seems to be short and birthdays or special occasions suddenly creep up on me. I bet many Mums can relate to this! Not only do I now have to remember my own friends’ birthdays and anniversaries but my kids seem to be being invited to more and more kids birthday parties too.

I used to pop down M&S every few months and stock up on a range of greetings cards (kids birthday cards, ladies and men’s cards, thank you cards etc) and keep them in that top drawer. Then I could grab one out of the drawer whenever a birthday crept up that I had forgotten about. That was until I stumbled across iHaveCards on twitter. iHaveCards is run by Sutton Coldfield based Jocelyn Reading, a young Mum of two young children, who trades in the Phoenix range of cards, which are absolutely lovely. The cards are so unique and Jocelyn is so forthcoming.

So I decided I didn’t want to put my money towards a large impersonal company anymore but instead support a local Mum trying to earn a living for her young family. What’s not to relate to? I need cards and she sells them, simple really. I’ve taken a photo of just a few of the cards I have bought from Jocelyn (my stack is starting to go down already so I will have to re-stock again soon). On the left you can see some of the kids cards, on the right are some of the ladies cards, in the middle are two male ones. You can’t see it in the picture but some of cards are even 3D. This is just a small selection of the ones I have bought, there are so many more in the range. And Jocelyn stocks loads of other stationary too, gift wrap, tags, present accessories and lots more.

Now I contact Jocelyn every few months instead of going to M&S and I buy a bulk of cards from her to put in my top drawer. It’s so easy, I can phone her, email her, buy via her website or I’ve even visited her and had a mooch through her entire collection. She does Facebook parties and open house evenings as well to get extra discounts. And you don’t have to buy in bulk like me, you can just get one-off cards.

And I have not been bribed to write this, I just simply believe in supporting other mothers around the area who are providing great products and a great service.

I’m so pleased with it and it really made my day. It’s fabulous that it’s so positive, but it’s just the fact that Hannah took the time out of her very busy life (she runs Kids Let’s Dance, as well as looking after her children) to write and share this that touched me the most. Thank you so much Hannah, as you’ve made my day (possibly my week..!) Oh, and I’m quite partial to the ‘young mum’ comment, too – not sure that’s strictly accurate, but thanks so much… ;-)!

Remember, my shop’s at www.jocelynscards.co.uk and if you fancy selling cards, too, I’m always happy to welcome and support new team members 🙂
