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
