What gives you a beaming smile?
Squiggle, Dot and Squeeze …when you read those three words what do you think about?! They make us smile, a beaming huge smile, as we know those three words can mean only one thing – Fun (with a capital F!) Today, over a cup of tea, we chatted with Flori Maisonneuve about her fabulous business. As many of you know craft activities are a huge part of Move Revoution’s Prioryfields this is the second year Squiggle, Dot and Squeeze have provided inspiration and support for our flagship event at Priory Park, Reigate. Find out more about the incredible lady behind this wonderful business!
When were you founded and what has happened since?
It all started 18 months ago with a dream to give something to the generation of little ones growing up in a tech rich, time poor world, so our craft kits came about as a way of taking the hassle and mess out of craft as well as creating learning, laughter and huge imaginative fun through our craft kits. The product is evolving to deliver our mini crafters smaller craft kits to fit different budgets and occasions but still deliver craft activities that go beyond just the making of them.
What do you enjoy most owning your own business?
Standing on the sidelines at sports day this month reminded me of all the reasons I work tirelessly on this business venture, but I also love a bit of glue and glitter myself, I get very carried away with ideas and can’t resist a theme.
What is your biggest achievement to date?
It feels like just putting one foot in front of the other is massive with 2 small children, I have to be grateful for baby steps however getting ourselves ready for The Kirstie Allsopp Handmade Fair in September and the Country Living in November around family life I hope will make me feel a sense of achievement.
Thank you for being part of Move Revolution’s Prioryfields 2017. What are you looking forward to at Prioryfields?
I love the ethos behind estate agent Move Revolution and the events they put on it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling to be part of something for the community and to aline the brand with community as a core value. And I love watching the crafty creations and the proud smiles fill the tent.
What does the future hold for your business?
If only we knew, however we can dream of our Facebook page becoming the “go-to” place for craft ideas, our customers recommending our kits, and for the dreams of a craft kit business that grows and the adventures it gives us to shape and develop the brand into great things.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
I live by what you put into life you get out of life
