Easter Monday marks T Cole Crafts 2nd anniversary!

Updated: Jan 23

Nestled in a grassy field and daffodil backdrop are four reuseable coffee cups. Each with a different coffee sleeve. Starting from the left is a beige sleeve with "7 billion people on the planet and you're my favourite" embossed on the sleeve, next is a tan sleeve with a salsa couple dancing, the lady has a red dress with strictly addict embossed above. The next sleeve is a deep dark brown aged leather with a trio of  horse galloping carved on the sleeve. The last sleeve is beige with a Barnaby Lion Carved in front of a Union Jack flag. Nestled around the cups are small Cadbury's easter eggs in purple and yellow foil.

If anything could make this Easter weekend better – lockdown finally beginning to lift and bringing with it the chance to meet up with friends, daffodils in full bloom, blossom coming out, spring sunshine, not to mention Easter eggs….! – Monday is the second anniversary of my business and I will be celebrating!

T Cole Crafts started with me exploring leather tooling as a craft and has blossomed into a fully fledged business. Whilst lockdown has presented problems not least because the markets where I had been showcasing my leather goods have been closed for months, it has also been a busy time for me. I have been working on a number of interesting commissions including these two travel journals and a pair of robin-themed items. I particularly enjoy working with clients to deliver the finished product they have in mind and in the case of the luggage tag, it gave me the chance to develop a new product. I have also developed some new designs for coffee sleeves.

The front cover has a tooled scene featuring Bee hive honeycomb corners viewing a Rugby ball aimed at the goal posts set in the Manchester hills. The rear features the back of a person running up a hill with his dog with the Quote: Eyes Front, Feet Forward, Heart Homewood" embossed in the black in the tooled clouds.

I’ve had wonderful support from The Prince’s Trust throughout my journey in building my business and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for everything they have done to help me.

Looking forward to Year 3 and meeting up with customers again. Things are looking hopeful. Keep well, keep safe!
