A Bean is Born

by Bev.

Well, after nearly a year in the making, we are nearly, very nearly ready to launch the site!

Just a little bit more tweeking to do and then we will go live, albeit quite quietly at first to test the water.

It’s been a funny old year when we think back to last August when we first started thinking about designing our own little shoes and putting some rough little illustrations together and developing little characters.


And now to see them come to life, and not only that, but to have hundreds and thousands of the little guys sitting upstairs in the office waiting to get hold of some tiny toes – well it’s all just a bit surreal really.

So, we got our delivery last week which was hugely exciting. The whole family got involved investigating the contents of the huge cartons. Dylan enjoyed delving deep into the boxes to pick out a chosen pair with exclamations of ‘woah’ and ‘wow’, whilst Alvin the bunny mucked in breaking down the cardboard boxes for us; Al stood back and took photos of the momentous and happy event and I got stuck in trying to create some kind of system to organise this sudden addition to our household! It’s all fun!

We are so excited about the forthcoming weeks and seeing our year’s worth of planning and drawing and building and financing all come to a head and seeing if anyone actually likes what we’ve done.

I guess we will see soon!
