I have tried to win Small Business Sunday for around 2 years now without any luck, I tweeted various tweets and images but when I checked on the following Monday nothing was retweeted. On Sunday 25th July 2017 I had forgotten all about it as Sunday evenings are a little busy in my household and remembering in time was a challenge! However I remembered with 2 minutes to spare!
I then went about with my chores and carried on with the start of my week and on Monday I was putting my children to bed when my phone went crazy! I did not know why but even the children asked me why my phone would not stop pinging!
I checked my phone and there was my tweet being retweeted everywhere and it dawned on me that I had won #SBS so we all did a happy dance! I kissed my children good night and I spent the rest of the evening answering everyones congratulations. This lasted a few days, along with the #SBSwinnershour the following day!
The last month my health had deteriorated and this impacted on my whole life, I had just started to feel better so this was such a perfect time for me. I am so thrilled to be one of the winners and part of the #SBSfamily. I can not wait to see what happens now and I have had my email to start the process.
I have a press release, a logo, a banner and I will be setting up my shop on Theo Paphitis’ market place. I even get to meet him, where I will be presented with my award certificate. I plan to keep you updated on this journey along with my new prototype for our new sensory bed.
Zack and I have been shopping and we have lots of new fabrics and twiddle things! We plan to put some of this together next weekend and take a video too! Zack is absolutely loving this and he can not wait show you all.
Here is a copy of my winning tweet:
