If you check out my Instagram stories from last night, you will see all the new Halloween designs I’m hoping to release! Today I’m attempting to get down all the remaining UP collection orders, as well as stitch out all my new designs. Watch this space! 🎃
My very talented daughter Megan, who is only 13, turned her hand to some artwork over the last year or so. This Disneyland Paris inspired postcard is available in my store for only £1 and all profit goes to her 💖
A lot of very lovely people have tagged me in posts over the weekend and I’m incredibly grateful. Sharing the love today with some pin flag displays (pin flags available in my store) and all small businesses are tagged for the pins. First up is my Harry Potter “Solemnly Swear” flag.
I’ve managed to get on really well with t-shirts today so I’m pleased to announce that the first of my Halloween collections will be released next weekend. This will for sure include this Hocus Pocus design, along with all the Nightmare before Christmas designs. Depending on what time I get, it may also include Hollywood Tower Hotel and Haunted Mansion designs too. As always, launch will take place on Friday night and will run throughout the weekend with various discount available for day one and day two. T-shirts will of course be available but fingers crossed there will be sweatshirts and hoodies also available to purchase.
Who loves a bit of Nightmare Before Christmas? I’m so pleased with how Oogie Boogie turned out and I can’t wait to share the rest of the collection
Keeping so busy with orders at the moment that I just don’t have much free time to play around with my own designs. However it’s always fun when someone asks me to make something custom as it gives me the excuse I need to work on new designs!
Hey guys! So you know how people say “it’s okay to not be okay”, well this is me saying I’m not okay. I’ve had a lot of stress and anxiety creeping in for a while now and though that’s not usually something I struggle with, this has hit me like a ton of bricks. My stories last night were the first step in trying to relieve my stress but unfortunately I may have left it a little late as I’ve had a few physical symptoms. So this is just a little note to say I might not be around so much for a couple of days. I want to get on top of my workload instead of always playing catch up and sadly social media takes a huge chunk of my time. Please excuse my lack of posts and comments for a few days. I’ll still be around to answer queries but I just need to step back a bit. It’s not all CG related though, kids are back to school tomorrow and other life stuff but nothing serious 😊
Thanks to my lovely daughter @princess_meggy_moo
for this digitalised version of me from the CG artwork she made a few weeks ago.
I digitalised the Closet Geek birthday art! Now it can be used all year round though. I tried something different with the shading and depth and I think it turned out quite nicely.
Instagram ruined the quality though 🤦🏼♀️

My amazing pin flag from @closetgeeksite
with all my fantasy pins on....coming along nicely! I love seeing everyone’s creations, if you know of any pin makers please feel free to leave their handle in the comments!
Who is you favourite character from UP! It’s lovely seeing which designs you all pick! I think Dug or Russell might be my faves.
A nice sunny morning means I can take a much better picture of the UP collection designs which I left laying in the exact same position last night 🙈 remember you can still grab 10% off your order all day today using code GRAPESODA
Thank you so much to everyone who purchased something from my UP! inspired Adventure Collection.
The 20% off discount code has now finished but you can claim 10% off using code GRAPESODA for the whole of Sunday (ends midnight BST)
The Adventure Collection is now live at www.ClosetGeek.club (link also in my profile). Grab any of the 11 t-shirt designs as well as 20% off for this evening only, using code ADVENTURE
Last but by no means least, Dug!
Grab the whole collection at 9pm BST and save 20% on any orders placed this evening with a discount code I will be posting when the collection goes live! #CGUPcollection #closetgeeksite
Another new design, to match the Adventure Awaits - Adventure Is Out There. I loved having matching tees with my family when we went away and these styles are great for that
The first of the new designs! Can’t have an UP! collection without a Wilderness Explorer badge **I can’t seem to get an accurate colour shot of the tee in this but hopefully later as a group pic**
This is the last of the UP designs that you may have already spotted or even own already! But there are 8 more to come!
Just in case you missed it, my new UP! Collection is launching this evening. There are a few familiar designs heading to the store, including this Up House and the Grape Soda badge but there are quite a few new ones as well! Keep looking out through this afternoon and into this evening for more updates!
For those of you who had a guess - the correct answer is UP! I will be previewing some of the designs this afternoon but the whole collection launches at 9pm BST and there will be a discount for any bought this evening and tomorrow. Stay tuned!
Anyone wishing they were heading off to Hogwarts today? 🙋🏻♀️ What an adventure that would be!
Another Tangled inspired pin flag that I will be adding to the shop. I love how Pascal turned out. Who’d like to see him on a tee?
Absolutely in love with my most recent addition to the pin flag family! I’ve even made myself one. Feel like I’m in Corona.
I’be had quite a few orders for the Walking Dead pencil case this week - perhaps in anticipation of its return soon? Sadly I don’t think it’s as good as it used to be and I’m not even sure I’ll be watching the new season
Marauders Map pencil case is one of my best selling products. Would you believe I’ve sold over 700 since adding them to my store?
You don’t get much Supernatural merch so this pencil case is always really popular. Pencil cases were one of the first items I sold in the store and I’m glad they are still always popular.
Never Grow Up! (it’s a trap...)
Today has been a super stressful day and I definitely hit a meltdown point. Being a grown up can be so hard sometimes, especially when you’re running around after everyone and no one’s looking out for you. Tonight I’m taking some time away from my phone, orders/enquiries and actually going to find time for a bath rather than a snatched shower!
I have to admit I’m not usually one for bright colours but I think this bowtruckle design looks amazing on orange!
The Tremaines are some of my favourite baddies. I’ve barely sold any of these dresses but I refuse to take them out of the shop as I just love the picture of all three girls 😍
The Cinderella rags dress is probably one of my favourite in the shop and I’ve sold a few this month already. I love stocking the more unusual dresses like rags and village versions of the princess dresses
Minnie and Daisy baking ears featuring a pink Minnie bow. Makes me want cake 🎂
Another scarf to finish off the day and that’s Harry Potter inspired. This particular one is Ravenclaw inspired and can be Navy or Royal but there is one for each house or you can have all Marauders Map fabric.
This Minnie Mouse infinity scarf is also one of my favourites. I’m thinking I might actually make myself one this year.
Now that the weather has turned a bit colder in the UK, it’s time to start wrapping up warmer! This Sorcerer Mickey inspired infinity scarf is one of favourite in the shop 💙✨❤️
My partner Chris booked himself in for a Cheshire Cat tattoo this Monday. Who else loves Alice in Wonderland?
Matilda reading cushion was the first I made and it’s still my favourite to date. I absolutely love Roald Dahl books as a child and I have enjoyed them all over again by reading them to my girls. This copy of Matilda is mine from when I was a kid.
These reading cushions have proved very popular since I added them to the shop, especially as presents for kids (though I know a few adults who love them too). What other character or fandoms would you like to see on them?
We finally got to see Christopher Robin today and it was amazing! I hadn’t expected to like it as much as I did and I found myself unexpectedly crying so often. Lily came home and ordered herself a Pooh and an Eeyore!
Halloween is almost on the way, so Villain bows are becoming more popular. I’m not a huge fan of the Evil Queen in Snow White (although I love Regina in OUAT) but I really love this bow. 💜
Thank you to everyone who joined in the CG birthday celebrations yesterday! There is still the main monthly giveaway taking place on Instagram and “buy 2, get a 3rd free” in my t-shirt store with code 3RDBIRTHDAY. You can grab this t-shirt and lots of other designs too.

There will be no choice in theme but I can promise you the box will be filled with geeky goodness. I picked up a few bits on my recent holiday to the US and of course that includes some things from Disneyland California. The box will also include ears, bows, a t-shirt etc. So if you would like to enter, you need to:
✨ Follow @closetgeeksite
✨ Like this post.
✨ Tag a friend in the comments and also tell me what your favourite product in my store is!
The giveaway is open internationally and will run till August 31st. Anyone who does not follow all the steps will not have a valid entry and therefore will not qualify to win.
A little bit of Toy Story love to brighten up your day! Who’s your favourite Toy Story character? #ToyStoryTuesday
Feeling refreshed from a good night’s sleep and ready to go again! Going to try and wade through the last of the t-shirt orders during today and tomorrow and will hopefully get everything sent out this week! Then I can get working on some more pin flags like this one. #closetgeeksite
After working on t-shirt embroidery all weekend, right through last night and during today, I have ground to a stop! I’ve run out of threads - white, black, blue - to name but a few! This rules out almost all my orders so I’m taking the evening off, getting an early night and I’ll start again tomorrow once the post arrives!
Pin flags are one of my favourite thing to make and this week I hope to be adding some new ones to both my wall and the shop. What would you like to see on a pin flag?
Last t-shirt for today and then maybe I’ll post something different 😜 still trying to function as a human being and not a dribbling mess and definitely getting down these t-shirt orders!
Good morning and Happy Monday! I’ve been up all night on the embroidery machine but I’ve halved my orders so that’s a good thing! Gonna keep slogging on today so I can hopefully get down all the outstanding ones from before my holiday and then move on to the current ones.
Sewing up a storm this evening - or is it this morning? Either way it’s 3am and I’m still working. SO MANY orders to finish and I hate being behind. Could be an all-nighter at this rate!
