Family member with the smallest head wins! (They won’t be so ‘big headed’ about that, will they 😜😂👌🏼) . In other news (😂🙈) I’ve just launched a brand new knit kit which means one thing...but this time, we thought we’d do a #harryandi meets #allthatisthree picture... two of us know the drill, Alex on the other hand, wasn’t so sure 🤷🏼‍♀️🙊😂 . ✨Our Weasley inspired LAD jumpers are out now (and also available as a plain roll neck with no initial if you prefer an understated sweater 🤷🏼‍♀️) I’ll stick some links in stories, hope you like them! KTHXBYE 😘💖

The decorations are up, the knits are out and I’ve got enough gin and brownies to feed the village.... we’re ready for our LAD open day tomorrow & Saturday and cannot wait to open our doors* and welcome our visitors in🍷😆🙊🎄 . There’s a fairy lot tour of the studio (due to popular demand 🙄) and plenty of info in my stories if you fancy...these have quickly turned into our favourite days of the year for team LAD - thank you SO much for your support around them and everything else we do. We really hope you can make it tomorrow (although completely understand it’s not possible for everyone & your support is more than enough you TOTAL BABES 💖) . For now though, I’m heading home for some dinner, the last thing to do tonight is decide... velvet jacket or fluffy dress for Friday? #bigdecisions . *the doors will deffo be closed - it’s bloody freezing, but let yourself in yeah?! THAAAAAAAANKS x1000 😘

Ho ho hello! 🎄 🌈 Public service announcement 🌈 to remind you to ‘Shop Small’ buying from your favourite small business and importantly buying from the **original makers** (not the people who copy their designs) ⠀⠀ Every year I struggle with people ripping off my Santa Hat (and other designs) as well as loads of companies using my actual picture... the one with my face in it!... to sell their rubbish versions of products that they copied from me 🤦🏼‍♀️ it’s super frustrating and such a waste of time having to tell them off... (Swipe to see the original and then how an Amazon seller ‘improved’ it 😂😂) ⠀⠀ So I wanted to turn this frown upside down, drop in with a new picture of my best seller (it’s still my best seller after all these years!) and remind everyone that the originals are BY FAR the best! 💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️ ⠀⠀ I’ve tagged some small business pals who’ve struggled with copy cats in case you want to start your Christmas shopping with them... cuz again, they’re the originals and the bloody best! 💪🏼😁😁 please feel free to tag your favourite small businesses who are total original BOSSES (so I can start my Christmas shopping 😜)🎄🎅🏼😘

Hello 💖 thank you for the lovely orders this weekend - the next few months are a HUGE DEAL for small businesses and I find myself obsessing over things like ‘we’d sold 10 more tree toppers this time last year!’ And constantly asking ‘what if no one ever buys a Santa hat again?!’ (It’s very annoying for everyone else in the studio 🙊 sorry guys 🤪) ...And then you show up. You say lovely things, you subscribe, you invest and you support - I know you’re not all knitters or customers but just as wonderful as that...you are here and I am SO grateful for your support every. single. day. You remind me that it’s all ok, we might sell less tree toppers than last year, or we might sell more 🤷🏼‍♀️ ultimately it doesn’t really matter because you’re here, showing up and I can’t tell you how much it means to me. Thank you, thank you 💖💖💖

Exciting news! LAD x Joules is official. 🎉🎉🎉 . Super excited that we are now selling on Joules website - yes actual @joules, of wellington boot fame! 😍 - they asked some British businesses to join their site, selling products as ‘friends of joules’ and we are lucky enough to be involved. 🙊💖 . We’re still working on the range and have launched with some of our familiar ‘best sellers’ and knit kits as wanted to get it live as quickly as possible but keep your eyes peeled for some exclusives on there 💖 .....I guess all I’ve got left to say is...yippee! 💃🏼🍸💖
