So I've decided to write a blog, I have been meaning to do this for years but I never seem to get around to it. I want to talk about what inspires me, maybe give some tips and talk about topics related to running your own business. My first post should be more about me so you can get to know the face behind Miss Shelly Designs but I've decided to start slow (get it?!) and simple so for my first blog post I have put together a little sloth gift guide for Valentine's day.
I don't know about you but everywhere I look at the moment I see sloths and as some of you may know I have a few products myself based on these fascinating little creatures. Personally I think the film Zootropolis helped their popularity, my family and I love the scene where Flash the sloth starts to tell a joke very sloooooowly, his slow reactions were hilarious.
I think the stereotypical lazy personality of the sloth relates to a lot of people and it has enabled designers like myself to make a range of products based on them. With puns like "I love you sloooooow much' Or 'I love hanging around with you" they've inspired a lot of people and products.
It also helps that these slow moving animals are very cute!
So here are a few sloth related products I love, to kick things off I'm going to start with one of my own products (of course!)

That's it for now! Thank you for reading and I promise my blogs will be a bit longer once I get into them. It was just good to make a start and I couldn't think of a better subject to talk about than these adorable little creatures we know and love as sloths.
