Hello all to this week’s Cherry Post
It’s been a fun week so let’s just jump straight into it.
I start off the post saying, after 7/8/9 years or so years being a windows phone user I have got myself a iPhone. You may ask what’s that got to do with Bonfirecherry..
Unlike being a windows phone user I can now livestream a lot more through my phone such as Pericope (twitter), Facebook Live & Instagram. Such as TONIGHT (of the day this post is published) over at the Bonfirecherry Twitter I will be doing a LIVE Q&A using Twitter’s Periscope app. So if you ever got any questions about Bonfirecherry (or about printing or yours truly) this will be the time to ask!

The first half of the week I got around to finally finishing off the Bonfirecherry Mystery Gift Boxes which are now available to order here. I know I have been going on about them for weeks so it felt good to tape up the final box this week which I will have at the Bonfirecherry Etsy shop & upcoming events.
Speaking of events, slight detour from going on about what BC has been up to talk about a small change to Bonfirecherry’s upcoming appearance at Abington Park Museum’s Christmas Event Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th November. While Bonfirecherry is there both days, I am stuck in retail work on Saturday (due it being black Friday weekend aka one of the busiest weekends in retail) that I can’t get out so I only be there to set up and will have a family member look after the Bonfirecherry stall instead. Be there normally on Sunday and the following Saturday at Etsy Makers Northants first Etsy made local.
I was back in the Bonfirecherry Print shed to work on a commission that I started last week of some custom totes like a tote bag version of the “Strawberry Milkshake” linocut print design from late 2015 which is inspired by Japanese Packaging.
While I was at it, I got around to print some more tote bags for the upcoming events as some may be in the mystery boxes mentioned at the start, you will have to find out if I am telling the truth of not 😉
Going on from bags, this week I had the chance to produce the extra large drawstring bag version of the Cherry Cherry Christmas design (that I normally use on tote bags). This product will ONLY be made to order at the Bonfirecherry Etsy shop online (well I will have to make some for the upcomings events but that’s it). What do you think?
Before I finish, I suppose I can’t miss out talking about Bonfirecherry’s most favourite day of the year (part from Christmas obviously) aka Bonfire Night on Sunday. Family tradition to go up to my aunty and uncle who live up the road to enjoy the fireworks and the bonfire. Did you do anything for Bonfire night?
I think that’s all for this week, please if you are reading this on the day this post is published (10th November) do please do check out the Bonfirecherry live Q&A at the twitter at 8pm GMT!
Thanks for reading
