Thank you (x1000)

1000 Facebook likes

Thanks everyone! The Fruity Cuties Facebook page has 1,000 likes!

I’ve really appreciated your support particularly from those fans who helped to rebuild our following on Facebook. Our original Facebook fan page was set up by a fan and co-administrated with me. It was sadly hacked a couple of years ago and we were unable to take back control of the page so lost the 2,000+ likes we had.

So thanks again for your support. If you’ve not checked out the Fruity Cuties Facebook page then it’s here

Difficult Fruit

Over the six and half years that Fruity Cuties has been going we’ve encountered some DIFFICULT FRUIT!

These difficult fruit (and vegetables) have refused to turn themselves into funny Fruity Cuties jokes no matter how much we’ve encouraged them!

So if you think you can turn Asparagus, Rhubarb, Cranberry, Cress or Spinach into a laugh out loud joke or pun then send a message to me from our contact us page.

Make Fruity Cuties 1 of your 5-a-day!

five-a-day

It’s recommended that we all eat at least five items of fruit and vegetables a day for a good, balanced diet.
I’m not suggesting for one moment that you give up 1 of those for Fruity Cuties! Instead Fruity Cuties is going to bring you fun fruit and vegetable stuff every day.

Make Fruity Cuties part of your day!

It’s been a while…

If you’re a regular visitor to the Fruity Cuties website or follow us through one of the many social platforms Facebook, Twitter etc. then you’ve probably noticed that new Fruity Cuties stuff hasn’t been appearing that often in 2014.

Many of you have written messages asking (or even demanding!) what’s happened to Fruity Cuties and when it will be back to regular posting of jokes, games and other stuff.

The short answer is August but for the longer and hopefully more interesting one then read on…

I have a confession, often you’ll read the words ‘we’ on the Fruity Cuties website but there is in fact not a huge company or team, there is just one person behind Fruity Cuties and that’s me!

I’m Nick and I’m all things Fruity Cuties! – illustrator, writer, designer, social media manager, webmaster, coder and more.

If you’ve ever ordered anything from the Fruity Cuties online shop and received in the mail a handwritten parcel then that’s my handwriting on the parcel. It’s me who stood in the post office queue to mail it to you.

Finding time to be the maker of Fruity Cuties has always been something of a challenge (an enjoyable one) and particular in 2014 with the arrival of my second child, my beautiful baby daughter Abigail. Time has been tight and my priorities have obviously had to change at least for a while.

August might seem an odd time to make a new year’s resolution but I’ve decided that it’s time to start updating Fruity Cuties with new stuff far more often. In fact I’m feeling very ambitious and I aim to make it something I do everyday. Even if it’s something tiny – maybe a tweet, maybe a blog post or a drawing.

Now I’m not saying you’ll going to be getting to laugh at a new Fruity Cuties joke everyday as after 6 years and over 260 fruit and vegetable themed jokes I have I think got pretty close to exhausting the subject for humour and puns. Though somedays I get lucky and a new joke idea pops into my head. What I will try to bring you is interesting and fun stuff about fruit and vegetables. Some of it will be information pulled from all the corners of the worldwide web, some I will create and I hope some will be created by you and shared here with other fans of Fruity Cuties.

I’m sure it won’t be perfect but let’s see how ‘we’ go!

Bye for now

Nick
