Bobbett's Blog No 99, a reflection of 2020, What a year!




What a year it all started with so much promise and expectations the first three months started well, with the first Blog of the year Bobbett's Blog New year goals, the excitement of building a new studio and talking about the colour of the year Classic Blue.




I feel this was an apt colour as boy has it been a blue year for so many.

Angel and Rose was formed early on in the year




booking 8 local craft fairs, unfortunately, all of them became virtual which wasn't really what we had in mind, but hey we worked with it creating videos and new images for several fairs, We had started our journey but unfortunately, it came to an abrupt holt by the end of March with the outbreak of Covid 19.

The world-changing for the four seeable future, Now in January, we seem to be in a similar situation with lockdowns and compromised lifestyles.

Tonia has a serious underlying health condition so we haven't seen each other since March.

By the beginning of May, the old Studio came down,

everything was delayed due to Covid, these blogs have given me a sense of direction and reflection.


I had lots of projects around thankfully, so I decided I would work my way through them. The largest was the studio build and wow I feel a real pride of achievement, thanks to Phil and our wonderful friends who made it possible.


By August we had a watertight studio and we're ready to start on the interior.

going from this old blue shack to this beautiful spacious studio has been a major progression for the business.


By the end of September, we were in and by the beginning of October I had taken on my largest commission to date, which you can see below an 8 seat dining room table from dated brown to Farmhouse chic.

Phil and I were busy working in here all summer and autumn,

and to date, we had our best Christmas ever sales,

With our plates finishing in the top place after a mad rush followed by our dinosaur decorations and then our wreaths



2020 was a year of learning a lot and doing it in the most difficult of circumstances with Covid 19 rearing its ugly head in March and is still with us, the world has changed in the way we look at everything.

Here are some pictures of my favourite sales in 2020
