Valentines Advent

Valentines Advent£65.00

Available for pre-order is this rather lovely Valentines Advent.

Following on from the success of my "To Me, Love Me" box last year, I have decided to offer a special Valentines Advent box.

It includes 14 mini skeins (20g) each.  So you get to open a special mini box each day from 1st Feb up to and including 14th February.

Each 4 ply skein will come in its own gorgeous little mini box, and all of the skeins will compliment one another,  making it really easy to use them all in one project if you wish.

Also included in your Advent box, are various little surprises, like sweet treats and pamper products.

This is the perfect gift for the yarny person in your life, or as a gift/little treat for yourself.  The perfect pick me up.  :)

I am only offering a very limited number for pre-order, so be sure to grab yours while you can.

Our Story

Hello everyone.

I'm Karen, and I'm the creative mind behind Kernow Designs.

I am currently 47 years old. I took a long career break to raise my young family.⠀Two are now grown & living away from home & one is in college.⠀Another two are in high school.⠀

It doesn't seem possible. (It passed while I blinked.)⠀

When I returned to work, I was miserable. Long hours, 7 days a week, late shift changes with barely any notice. No appreciation of my hard work and missing so much family time. So I took the plunge and quit my job. I decided that I only have one life so I was going to live it in a way that made me smile instead of cry.

It was a big risk but it was also one I simply had to take.⠀I started my own business.⠀I turned my passions into something which I can share with you all. :)

Will it fail? Will it succeed? Honestly I don't know. But the important thing for me is that I'm giving it a go.⠀(I am determined that I will not reach 50 years old and sit here thinking "what if?"

I had previously survived cancer only to realise later that I was actually just surviving my day to day life.)

I know that I'm lucky. I have this amazing chance and I'm grasping it for all that I am worth.

I am a part of a wonderful, amazing fibre community and for that I am truly thankful.⠀

Wishing you all happiness, may your dreams always make you smile.

Yarny Hugs,

Karen.x
