I was delighted to find out this week that I had been selected amongst six other talented designers and makers as one of Theo Paphitis's (of Dragon's Den fame) Small Business Sunday winners.

The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 3,000 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.


I am really hoping that this fantastic boost will make the world of difference to my business. I have already been welcomed into the fantastic and super friendly #sbs community on Twitter and Instagram.


Do check out the other fantastic winners from this week:


https://www.rosiehayceramics.co.uk/ - beautiful ceramics from fellow Scotland based artist Rosie Hay.

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheCraftyNoo - fabulous handmade polymer clay creations.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/Daintydoo - Dainty Doo - beautiful felt creations.

https://www.sistersister.biz/ - fabulous illustrations, gifts and ceramics.

https://www.heartandsoulcandles.co.uk/ - beautiful candles and wax melts.


We have all been profiled on the #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com) that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.


Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said:


We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK. My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish

Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5 PM and 7.30 PM and include the hashtag #SBS. Six lucky businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website, attend the annual #SBS networking event and take advantage of the networking opportunities.

I have also just entered the Theo Paphitis Art Prize with my original artwork - the Cup of Life. I painted this design in the middle of the pandemic, and as the theme for the competition is 'Escapism' - I hope this artwork evokes with the judges how painting such a hopeful piece in dark times can bring brightness into the darkest of seasons.
