The tree and decorations are away. Sigh. Back to normal although we’ve kept some of the fairy lights up just because they’re so pretty.
Girlchild has been busy with her new hobby – the art of tattooing with felt tips. I have numerous flowers that she’s inked on me. I’m hoping it won’t graduate to ‘love’ and ‘hate’ on my knuckles.
We’re also knee deep in Hama beads. They’re brilliant for creating pretty much anything. Maybe she’ll work out how to make me a car seat cover in the style of those 90′s wooden beaded affairs but in primary and neon beads. Might be a tricky one to iron.
Anyhoo, we have a big discount code (huge) that’s available until Sunday 19th January. Simply enter ‘fantastic15′ when you’re checking out and you’ll receive 15% off your order. Boom.

Happy new year! Ok we’re a leedle bit late with this one but better late than never.
We’ve had a wonderfully quiet and relaxing Christmas here at FKHQ but now we’re ready to take on 2014.
So what’s been happening around these parts? Well, we’ve got a super clearance sale on which is bursting with bargainous delights. Have a rummage and see what you can find.
We’ve also been busy creating a new children’s clothing range for summer. Tshirts, A-line dresses, leggings and pinafores are being pieced together and sewn up by our very own sewing elves (now Christmas is over they’re a bit short of work). My wonderful friend Jean will be doing the photo piccy snaps of them. They will hopefully be on the website by February.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos of tiny people inflating some raisins.

It’s Movember 2013 and that time of the year when men can have an excuse to put their shavers away and start looking like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. Mo Bros, supported by their Mo sistas, around the world start growing their moustaches from 1st November right through until the 30th. Sounds like a laugh, yes? Well yes, it is loads of fun but behind the fun is a serious side.
Movember is a global charity that supports prostate and testicular cancer and also mental health. It’s been running since 2003 and in those 10 years has been spreading the word and helping people since who are suffering from these forms of cancer and helping those with mental health issues.
Here at FKHQ we’re counting down the (shopping) weeks and days left until we reach Christmas. It seems to get quicker every year – perhaps that’s just me showing my age. Anyhoo, new stock is arriving here what seems like every day. So far we’ve had the delightful Christmas angel mice and big brother and sister mice from Maileg. So cute. Not overly expensive so would be a great stocking filler.
The squirrel nutcracker is a hit with us. What’s not to love about this cute little critter? And he’ll crack your nuts for you! Stylish yet practical.
Check out the jute Santa sacks that are perfect for stuffing with all kinds of goodies. And, they’re not just for the youngsters of the house. They are available in four different designs and will last for years to come.
And finally, sparkly, glitter reindeers are practically de rigeur. Put a bit of kitsch in Christmas. These fine fellas come in red, silver and gold. Why not buy all three and place randomly around the home?
I’ll be blogging updates on the stock as they arrive, both new and Christmas, so keep checking back to see what’s landed before the others get their mitts on them.
To make room for all the new stock that’s winging it’s way to us, we’re giving the you the opportunity to bag yourself a bargain in our clearance department. Clothing, accessories, toys and fabric are all included.
Can this day get any better you may ask yourself? Well no. We hear on the grapevine that the cult tv series from the 1970s, The Clangers, is being resurrected and will be on our screens in 2015 thanks to CBBC. I can feel a batch of blue string soup being made. In the meantime, you can read all about it here.
