Hi Everyone,

I have been absolutely amazed, thrilled and staggered by how busy I have been since Christmas – as you can see, I haven’t had chance to even update my blog in nearly 2 months!

The flip side of this is that I am little overwhelmed at the moment, struggling with my workload, finding the motivation to push forward and starting to feel more than just a little burnt out. My family life / work life balance is waaaaaaaay off at the moment and that also need redressing!

Last night (as some of you may have seen via Twitter!) my husband decided that I need a little break to get refreshed and to be able to give My Little Customs the focus it needs on my return.

We have booked an adorable little lodge in Cornwall for a mini getaway, therefore, no orders will be sent next week. I am really looking foward to having a break from the internet and being able to spend some quality time with my daughter and husband.

I realise this is short notice but, as next week is the last week of my daughters school holidays,  it is now or never! I hope you all understand.

I will add in some extra time for you to get any last minute orders in by extending my usual shipping times up to and including this Saturday.

The My Little Customs dates for your diary are as follows:

7th, 8th & 9th April orders processed and shipped as normal

Saturday 10th April – orders recieved before 11am GMT time will be processed and shipped

Monday 12th April – Friday 16th April – NO ORDERS WILL BE SHIPPED

Monday 19th April all outstanding orders will be processed and shipped as normal

Once I am back, I am expecting new shipments of both the Nylon and Saran so I should be fully stocked, refreshed and ready to rock and roll!

Thank you for your understanding and I apologise for the short notice

Robin xoxo


I am really chuffed to have been featured in our local newspaper this week, so exciting! Even more exciting for me was that my 2 favourite Blythe girls took center stage! 😀

I haven’t had chance to scan the article onto my computer yet however, you can read it online here and see how it looks in the paper from this quick photograph I took on my phone – look how lovely and big the photo of Christmas (Rainy Day Parade) and Tuppence (Miss Sally Rice) is!

Christmas & Tuppence are well chuffed at being in the newspaper!

I was very nervous about the interview and completely freaked out when the Head of Content wanted to send a photographer around to my house to photograph me with my dolls! Needless to say, I politely declined the photographer offer and sent across some of my own pics LOL I am fairly sure everyone involved with the article thinks I am completely potty!!

So many people have complimented the article that all my fears as to, how I would come across, what spin would be put on it and whether or not I would be portrayed as a crazy lady, have been put to rest 😀

I would like to thank Robert Zarywacz (@RobertZ) for the time he put into the article and for contacting me in the first place!

With all my excitement, I have completely neglected the My Little Customs Birthday Celebration Promotions and so, to make it up to you, how about a double whammy over the weekend? 15% off all Saran hair and a surprise FREE GIFT when you spend £16 or more!!

To claim the 15% off, enter the coupon code:  YAY15  at the checkout 😀

The promotion starts from Midnight (GMT) tonight  and will run until Midnight (GMT) on Sunday, February 21st!

Happy Shopping!

WOW – that is all I can say! I cannot believe 3 years has passed so quickly 😀

It seems like only yesterday that I first received a small shipment of Nylon to sell; just 15 colours. 15 colours?!! My, how I have grown!

My Little Customs now carries over 115 colours of Nylon,  has gone on to stock over 95 different shades of Saran and most recently, 14 colours of Polypropylene – not to mention all our other stock lines!  Fairy Wing making supplies, glues, rerooting supplies and our newest focus, Blythe! Eyechips, kawaii fabrics, tiny buttons, lipstickers, foils, Twiggy Twiggy pull rings … the list is ever growing!

If it wasn’t for the wonderful support I receive from you all, I wouldn’t be where I am today so a massive, huge, enormous THANK YOU to you all

So, without further ado, to kick start our promotions,  a small way of saying thank you to our existing customers and a big hello to my newest shoppers – shipping is COMPLETELY FREE for the next 3 days!!


Hiya everyone,

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a great New Year 😀

2010 is heralding some big changes for My Little Customs, starting off with new simplified shipping costs.

Postage was previously weight based which meant you never quite knew what the shipping costs would be until you reached the final stage of the checkout, often leading to confusion and complications! Hence new flat rate costs.

The new shipping charges will commence 13/01/10 – until then, FIRST CLASS WORLDWIDE SHIPPING IS FREE!

From January 13th 20120, the new shipping tarriff will be as follows:

FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING* when you spend £25 or more

*Free shipping is standard First Class Airmail (no tracking)

Under £25 the following flat rates apply:


Royal Mail First Class : £1.15

Royal Mail Special Delivery: £5.50

Interlink Express Courier (UK Mainland Only): £9.50


Royal Mail First Class Airmail (no tracking): £1.75

Royal Mail Airsure (Signed For & Tracked): £6.50

USA / Rest of the World

Royal Mail First Class Airmail (no tracking): £2.25

Royal Mail Airsure (Signed For & Tracked): £8.50

HOWEVER – to break you all in gently, for the next week, First Class (or First Class Airmail) shipping is FREE!

NEW shipping charges will commence 13/01/10

Just in time for Christmas! Hooray!

Twiggy*Twiggy Blythe pull rings are now being stocked at My Little Customs

I am really very, very impressed with the quality of these Blythe pull rings – I may have to nab some for my girls!

As you are no doubt all aware, the Royal Mail strikes are going ahead, starting from today. The strikes are scheduled for today and tomorrow, however, the CWU has confirmed that further strike action will take place if no agreement has been reached.

With this in mind, please note the current changes which have been implemented with regards to My Little Customs delivery. When shopping at you will have the following options:

For orders under £25.

The postage options at checkout now comprise of:

Royal Mail First Class and Interlink Express Courier.

Royal Mail First Class will NOT be shipped until at least next week, please note this is subject to change and is dependant on the impact the current strikes have on backlogs and deliveries. I shall continue to update anyone who chooses the Royal Mail options via email with regards to postal dates.

I HIGHLY advise you use our new courier service which will be provided by Interlink Express. A set charge of £4.50 will applied at checkout. This is cheaper than Royal Mail Special Delivery and will be guaranteed Next Day Delivery before 3pm Monday – Friday.

Interlink Express is fully trackable and requires a signature upon delivery. You may leave a note for the courier driver such as “please leave with neighbour” or “please leave in a safe place” however;  this cannot be guaranteed and will be down to the delivery driver’s discretion.

By choosing Interlink Express, you are guaranteed to avoid all Royal Mail disruptions as they are an indepedent company, in no way linked to Royal Mail.

The added bonus is that Interlink Express is CHEAPER than Royal Mail Special Delivery 😀

All orders placed before 4pm, Monday to Friday, will be sent same day. Any orders placed after this time will be sent the following working day.

For international orders, although minimal disruption will be caused, there may be a small delay and AirSure (signed for) is recommended.

For orders over £25

Orders with a value over £25 will be sent via Interlink Express at no extra charge. Should you wish to have your order sent via Royal Mail, please contact me.

Thank you for your patience during this disruptive period, I am working hard to ensure you will get your orders, Royal Mail strikes or no Royal Mail strikes!

If you spend over £25 at you will automatically get FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING!


The free shipping applies to standard UK: First Class or Worldwide: First Class Airmail.

Please note, there is NO TRACKING provided with either of these services, should you require tracking and insurance, please choose the following shipping options at checkout:

Happy shopping! 😀
