Last week Geoffrey & Grace and the other makers at Margot got some very exciting news…
Margot has been shortlisted for a Mollie Makes Handmade Award!
When I received the email to tell me, I was cooking Bailey’s dinner and I jumped around the kitchen giggling in disbelief. I had to read the email another three times for the news to properly sink in.
My first thought was to share the news with Sally, Lou and Michelle. However motherhood stops for no one – not even for good news – and to say that it was a challenging dinner and bed with Bailey is an understatement. I had to contain my excitement for a bit longer until the little one was safely tucked up in bed.
All 15 finalists have been invited to London for a day of mentoring and to present to the judges – which makes me a bit nervous, but I am sure they will be a friendly bunch.
There are five categories and Margot is a finalist in the Collaboration Award along with Craftivists and The Letterpress Collective and DesignosaurYEAH and Hello DODO’s chameleon George necklace.
It will be our first group outing for all four of us. Plus, what the Mollie Makes team have lined up for the 11th of June looks so fantastic, that the day is a prize in itself.
Wish us luck with the Mollie Makes Handmade Awards …we will let you know how we get on.
