Goodbye Little Whirlwinds

This will probably be the hardest blog post I will ever write, but here goes!

After much soul-searching, I have finally reached the difficult decision to close Little Whirlwinds...

5th Birthday Bonanza! Win £50 for you + a friend!

We made it to 5! 
We've come a long way since launch day - my podgy little model is now a big and school girl, the 3yo twins who tried on my first attempts at printing are 8 and while there have been highs and crashing lows on this adventure, I'm still here!

It really isn't easy taking holiday time when you're self-employed, the planning and financial risk is enough to make you need a holiday in itself, but the Scottish school summer holidays are beginning and I can't wait to spend some quality time with my husband and daughters who put up with me never really switching off for the rest of the year!

Hello Little Whirlwinds!

Hello Little Whirlwinds!

What a *whirlwind* this last week has been!  Firstly, thank you so so much for the countless lovely messages I received following my last blog.  I hadn't really intended on opening up as much as I did - it was more a case of beginning to type and it all flowing out - but I am so glad I did now.  It feels like a big weight has lifted and I have a clean slate to simply be myself and to let you in.

Why I'm saying goodbye to Rock It Tots

Why I'm saying goodbye to Rock It Tots

As many of you will know, I started Rock It Tots over 4 years ago.  My youngest of three kids under 4 was just a babe of 8 months and I was coming to the end of my maternity allowance with no job to go back to and about £200 to my name.  I saw some second hand equipment on Gumtree, taught myself to use it and the rest, as they say, is history!

Those 4 years have flown by, but they have also been a lifetime in many ways.  During that time, I have had many struggles with my mental health - struggles that I would try to keep hidden by putting "the mask" of coping on (something I'm sure many of you will relate to) even though I felt totally empty inside.

CH-CH-CHANGES!

Hello, lovely people - both those who have been on board since the beginning over 4 years ago and those who might have just discovered us!

Nothing in life stands still and with the new year being a time for reflection and renewal, I have taken the opportunity to quietly prepare the ground for some pretty big changes to Rock It Tots coming in the next few weeks!

As part of these changes, we will be saying goodbye to some tee & baby grow designs as well as certain fabrics to make way for some fresh new ideas.

To mark this transition, I am offering a fab 25% off everything across the site, so get in there now to be sure of bagging your favourites while you can!

To claim, enter CHCHCHANGES at checkout!

Happy shopping!

Why #Shopsmall? A day in the life of Rock It Tots

So today is Small Business Saturday 2017!  It's a day for local and independent businesses up and down the country to shout about themselves through the din created by the giants of the high street and net.  There are so many wonderful small businesses out there that are the unsung heroes of the UK economy.  Rock It Tots is just a drop in the ocean, but here's a bit more about who you're (hopefully!) buying from!

I'm Hannah, a 30-something mum of 3 fierce girls - twins aged 7 and the boss of the house aged 4.

Rock It Tots is my 3rd business (3rd time lucky!) and I started it in 2013 when my littlest Rock It Tot was just 7m old and my maternity allowance was about to run out!  Having 3 kids 3 and under was going to mean crippling childcare bills and so I knew I had to find something I could do from home and work around them.
