How different things have become for everyone in the past few weeks. Every day there is more bad news about the effects of COVID-19 and how countries around the world are trying to cope with the pandemic.
So many businesses are facing the collapse of trade and there are knock-on effects for all of us. I hope everyone is staying indoors and keeping clear of the virus.
Last week I wanted to spread a little happiness amid all the misery, so I offered to send a stained glass heart light catcher out free of charge to people who were nominated by my followers on Instagram and Facebook. As a result of this, two glass hearts were sent off to two very deserving recipients. One of them was a friend of a customer who loves my work and who was self isolating. The other is a young girl who has leukaemia and is in and out of hospital having treatment. When the gift arrived, she had unfortunately returned to hospital for treatment for an infection. However, her mother unpacked the surprise parcel on her behalf and sent her a photo of its contents. I hear she was delighted with the gesture, so I am happy to have shared a little goodwill in these trying times.
As you may have seen in my previous post, all the usual events where I sell my stained glass have been cancelled or postponed, but I have put lots of the work I made for those events into my online shop.
I have seen first-hand how delightful it is to receive an unexpected gift through the post – and we all need cheering up in these horrible circumstances. So please have a browse and see if there is something there that you would like for yourself or a friend or loved one. April’s special offer is free postage on all small items in the shop. Any purchase will be helping a small business keep afloat at the same time :).
The stained glass piece pictured in this blog features two little stained glass houses standing in a wood of green triangle trees. Above them hangs a round glass sun and a silver coloured fir cone charm. In front of the houses a small dog is taking himself for a walk – obviously he is sensibly practising social distancing ;). This handmade sculpture is mounted on a rustic, wooden block. It would look great on a shelf, desk or table.
Find this and several other new designs in the shop now. There is a new Easter section to visit as well.
Happy shopping and stay safe everyone!
