Wow, I can quite proudly say that it has been 1 year now since we started our #littlepacksoflove project. If you haven't heard about it or had one yet, you can find out more by reading my previous blog post.
My idea started out small, I wanted to be able to give my clients goody bags with lots of relevant, local information and offers in, not junk. I teamed up with the lovely Emma from Sunflower Baby Massage to plan putting together the packs. It was a lot of work (and still is) organising everyone and everything for the packs, but very rewarding. Unfortunately, Emma has had to move on, but I am delighted to have Puddle Ducks on board to help me now as well as a few other local mums who run their own baby related businesses who help to pack them up.
Little packs of love have become so much more than just goody bags, we have created a community of local mums in business who all own baby related companies and we all support each other as well as meeting up regularly, it can be really lonely being a self employed mum sometimes.
To celebrate our success over the past year, many of the businesses involved have offered a prize for our fantastic giveaway!
