Lillibet on the other paw, doesn't have to rely on Momma, only for the packaging! Much easier! She was meant to have a little launch party at a local show in Northampton in a few weeks, but she had that reaction to her vaccine and them promptly stole 3 zipper tapes from the bin, so that put an end to her leaving the house whilst Momma locates them in the chocolate gold!
Her little products will be based on things she loves! Of course the very first thing on her list is GREEN BEANS! They will be packaged as 'LilliLongLegs Three Bean Salad' - perhaps none of you really know that her pet name at home is actually 'Bitty bean' - It derived from her being 'in-call' and we said she had 'Lilli-bits' when her nipples grew into little hormonal lumps. Well, the bitty bit stuck (think of Little Britain) and from there on she gets called Bitty most of the time. The beans, most of you know about, she is crazy mad for green beans - or really their strings! So a three bean salad it has to be!!!
Her other collection is a collection of 6 felted bugs. These are brightly coloured and very flat with cute details. There will be a worm, a butterfly, a beetle, an aphid, a centipede and a ladybug. These will form part of her 'Bag O Bugs' and then later there will be a 'Gone Fishing' set of creatures on recycled wooden poles. It is quite the adventure and already her logo is designed and the bugs and beans are winging their way from Kentucky! I know, all those air miles, but they are recycled products and organic catnip, so we are doing our bit for the environment and Momma said if she has these newly designed products, they have to be from a small business and NOT a sweat shop. The lady who has made the designs come alive is just a genius!
For now, Lillibet is playing with the prototypes that arrived at Xmas and her and Faith are trying them out for ware and tare. So far, they are lasting well. Don't tell anyone, but I love my 'pillows' much more than felted bugs! Herrumph
Watch this space for LilliLongLegs creations. I for one am insanely jealous.
