After a few months break from my business due to life, I’ve made the decision to close my shop.

It’s been a great couple of years since opening in August 2020. I’ve learnt so much about running a small business and made loads of friends too.

So, this Friday (6th January) at 9pm GMT, I’ll be opening my shop one last time with 60% off EVERYTHING!

I’ll likely leave my shop open for a couple months, but the aim is to sell everything by mid-March so I don’t have to do a 23/24 tax return 😂

Thanks again to everyone who’s supported me and to all of my customers. My business may be coming to an end but my love for tea & biscuits will always remain! 🫖 🍪

Today is your LAST CHANCE to buy from my shop before I pop it into hibernation. I don’t want to say close as that’s a little too final for me right now 🫖🍪

⭐️You have until 23:59 TONIGHT!⭐️
(Thurs 30th June)

A huge thanks to all of you who’ve ordered since Saturday, I’m working on getting those out to you by the end of this week.

Another huge thank you to those who’ve supported me these last couple of years, I cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am 😊

It’s !

Your support is more important than ever right now. Us business owners know that times are tough and we’re all having to make tough decisions to keep going, or take a break in my case.

Please take the time to consider purchasing that gift from an independent business rather than a large retailer if at all possible. Shopping independently can bring such joy to not only the business owner but to you too!!

From 9am today until Thursday 30th June there will be 30% off EVERYTHING in my store. After then I’ll be putting my store into hibernation.

So… with working five days a week, being a single mum, and spending time with my lovely partner, friends and family… I’ve come to realise that I simply cannot give my business the attention it deserves right now.

From 9am on Saturday 25th June until Thursday 30th June at 11:59pm, there will be 30% off my entire store! 🫖 🍪

After that I’m going to put my store into hibernation. I’ve no idea how long for, a few months maybe or even longer.

So if you’ve had your eye on anything then set your alarms now! The discount will come off automatically upon checkout.

I won’t be disappearing completely so don’t panic! But by doing this it’ll hopefully takes the pressure off for a while.

Another little chair reupholstered for the wonderful Salma, as the other one seems to have been claimed by Ghost the cat 🐈‍⬛

Not that it’s an issue of course, as it gave me a good excuse to do another 😊

This one was up for grabs with a cute little footstool, and the fabric was from eBay.

Maybe one day I might have the space, time and money to do this properly, wouldn’t that be lush.

Today I did something for me, I booked a therapy session, four sessions actually ☕️

I did have a series of sessions a good few years ago, but looking back now, I’m unsure if that was the right time to have them. I believe it was just before I started medication, as before that point I felt like I didn’t need them and therapy was my only option.

I’ve also grown since then and discovered so much more about myself. So, it’s now time to return to those worries that linger on my mind daily, and have a professional help me delve deep to explore and understand them.

Therapy is cool kids, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise 🥰

I’m using BetterHelp btw, if you’ve been thinking about therapy too then message me for a referral sign up url to get one week free.

Found myself another upholstery project again didn’t I. This time it’s a lovely little sofa 🛋

Got this from marketplace for £15 and the fabric from Wiltshire Scrapstore & Resource Centre for about £25 I think.

Some time, sewing, stapling and swearing later… Ta-Dah 🤗

I’m still here! Amazed how quickly two weeks have gone since my last post. Been a rather busy bee 🐝 and haven’t really had much chance to work on any of my business stuff, but that’s okay 😊

I did notice it was so I thought I’d share my story, well, it’s not a story as such… more of a this is me.

I took my last antidepressant just over a week ago and I’m only just getting my head a little more straight I think. I’d been on this course since Jan 2021 and felt it was time for me to say goodbye to them 👋 Will I return? Who knows, I’d love to say goodbye forever but we shall see.

I do however feel like I’m in a far better position mentally than I have been in years. I’m incredibly grateful and fully appreciative of my amazing friends and family who have and always will be there in the hardest of times.

My next steps are to get better at being kinder to myself and making time for me. Life can be stressful, especially as a single mum working full time, it’s so easy to forget doing those little things that can help give you a healthier mind 🧠

Also, a huge thank you to the wonderful Emma from Little Pig Jewellery Design who made me a new Keep Going necklace as some how I managed to destroy mine 🙄 You are a beautiful human!

Firstly, a huge thank you to those who ordered from me over the weekend! 🥰 I’ll be packing those orders over the next few days and hope to get them in the post by the end of the week.

Hello 👋 to my new followers! I’m Helen and I launched CraftyCooke in September 2020. I work full time as a video editor and have a 5yo son, so my business is more my mindfulness, my time to create what I want to.

Why the tea 🫖 and biscuits 🍪 theme? Why not! I love both and it just sort of happened… can’t go wrong with that theme really.

So, tell me what you enjoy in you mug and which biscuity treat makes you want to eat the whole packet?
