The Cherry Post No.177 + 178 | The Return Of The Awkward

Hello all to this week’s Cherry Post!

As usual before I start, just a reminder that if you love crafts & business to search Bonfire Banter on your preferred podcast platform such as Spotify, Google Podcast & iTunes to name a few. It’s a small podcast that I have been running with my friend Dene since April 2018, up to 21 episodes so far where we have talked craft fairs to how to deal with bad customer feedback. You can listen to all our audio content at The Great Shows here.

With that out of the way, lets start with this week’s post!

I start off talking about the Bonfirecherry Youtube channel. Since the last Cherry Post there has been 2 videos that are now available on the channel.

The first was a new video for the channel going into the History of Bonfirecherry, previously a few months ago I done video talking about the history briefly alongside why it’s great to support local small businesses. This time I thought I dedicate them to 2 separate videos. Check out the new video of yours truly talking about the history of Bonfirecherry & tell me what you think!

The second video is July’s Inkdrops unboxing video. I have been enjoying the great goodies I’ve been getting from Inkdrops since the start of the year and July wasn’t no different, you can watch the unboxing video above and comment below or on the video telling me what you think 😊.

I am thinking of subscribing to another stationery box from a company called Ohh Deer on the day this CP goes live so watch out for those unboxing videos in the next month or so!

Last week I met up with the wonderful, talented and gorgeous Khandie Photography on personal and Bonfirecherry business. We support each other so I will always make sure I have time to hang out with Khandie, it was a great day meeting up with her as it was a great day out  there. I did  do a print of Khandie as Khandie Khisses a while ago and I want to do a print of her as her photographer persona (I make her sound like she is also fights villains at night haha) soon.

I would go into what I asked of Khandie during our meet-up but can’t for a few  reasons.

During August there will be a brand new tote bag design, I am thinking of doing a tote bag with some text on, something a bit different but just thinking about the write text, comment below with any suggestions!

This weeks youtube video will be live tomorrow, it’s going about why it’s great to support local small businesses!

I confess this is where the awkward bit comes in as that’s about it for Bonfirecherry the past 2 weeks due to I’ve been doing a lot of over time in my  bakery job to help fund my trip to Japan in November (94 days to go), it’s going to be a special holiday for me and I do have a few printmaking courses there planned.

This is why there is a limited amount of new designs in the past & upcoming months but as mentioned earlier, I do have a few new designs coming in August but that will be it til after November.

I think that’s everything, thanks for reading!
