Before and after pictures of this years big office renovation project and move. The new office/studio is open plan on the top floor of a 19th century cotton mill which has beams and rusty steel pillars and old oil from the machines still on the floors. The walls were peeling and unloved. But there are BIG windows letting in lot’s of natural light (and rain and weeds) and it’s open plan. With a bit of imagination this space could be great:photography-studio-before-after-diyphotography-studio-before-after-pictures

Even though we’re in, we are pretty much working around boxes and unpacking as we go. We’re still open for business so working on orders (which has always been the priority) so we still have lots to do to make it gorgeous. For now it’s very much a blank canvas.

Hope you like it so far.

We’ll get some pictures up of the finished studio soon (well probably just the tidy instagrammable parts).

Earlier in the new year it became obvious that we had outgrown our studio and we needed more SPACE and somewhere BIGGER.

It’s been a busy first part of the year for us. We found the perfect office space – the top floor of a gorgeous grade II listed cotton mill with beautiful views, lot’s of natural light (so much potential) but that needed lot’s and lot’s of work. Here’s a quick before and after of the office build / renovation. As you can see it was pretty grubby before, but not strangers to hard graft (here’s pics from our very first studio space part 1  and part 2 here that was in a different old mill… we have a thing for old mills that need a bit of love…) we got the keys in June and set to work:photography-studio-before-after-renovationphotography-studio-after-picture

We’re in, it’s gorgeous, light bright and spacious and we are just finding our feet again. It’s a nice place to be.

It’s an age old question that’s left Children all over the UK wondering Just how will Santa Claus get into their house this Christmas if they don’t have a chimney?

With only 39 days until christmas rumours are emerging. It’s been said by some that Santa Claus uses magic to make himself teleport from outside to inside for houses that don’t have a chimney. Some believe that he uses this magic to make his sleigh and reindeer shrink, so small that they can, if needed, fit through the letterbox or any other tiny opening.

 

Of the 7.9 million families with children in the UK (Office For National Statistics) you too may wondering…

Just how exactly Father Christmas will be able to get into your home to deliver your presents?

To find out we went straight to our source in the North Pole and got the inside scoop:

“Don’t believe everything you read.  Sure, Santa Claus uses magic get into homes without a chimney” said one Elf who wished to remain anonymous “But seriously are you kidding me – of course he doesn’t teleport or shrink himself”

“He gets in the same way that anyone else would. He uses a key. But not just any old key, a key that has been left out on Christmas Eve by a Child. Most importantly: A Child who believes. And it is that child’s belief that creates the magic within the key”

“A magic key hung on a door on Christmas Eve night is your sign to Santa that your household believes”

So, there you have it folks. The answer to the age old question ‘HOW DOES FATHER CHRISTMAS GET INTO A HOUSE WITHOUT A CHIMNEY?’

The answer is simple… with magic…a Child’s belief… and a little help from a key!

Be sure to leave your magic santa’s key on your door at night as a sign to Santa that your house believes.
