Claire and Flossy’s Scottish Adventure


Flossy, the daughter of Sand in your Eye team member Claire, is a Taylor Swift super fan, even her Birthday party was Taylor Swift themed! Flossy was over the moon when she found out they managed to get tickets to see her and has been waiting patiently for the day to come that she could see her favourite pop star perform.

When the weekend of the concert was approaching Claire suggested to travel up a bit earlier and make a sand drawing on the beach of the star and so they did! Armed with rakes, they arrived on the beach at 5am to draw. With sand drawing you have to work between the tides so an early start it was. The drawing took 6 hours to complete with lots of raking it was hard work for just 2 people, especially as Flossy is only nine years old, but they finished it in time. Flossy wrote a message to Taylor at the bottom of the drawing in the hope she might see it. Either way, fantastic memories were made for mum and daughter in creating this sand art on Portobello Beach together.


We uploaded the sand drawing to Tik Tok in the hope Taylor Swift fans would share it enough that it might get to her. The reaction has been incredible, her fans spreading the image far and wide to help Flossy and everyone has been really supportive of her hard work.


Flossy (age 9) drew a 30 meter message to @Taylor Swift on a beach in Edinburgh, ahead of tomorrows concert! Lets make it viral!!!! @Taylorswiftclub @SWIFTIES #taytay #eras #erastourtaylorswift #viral #taylorswift #swifttok #swifties #swiftie #swiftietiktok #erastour #edinburgh #erasedinburgh

♬ I Can Do It With a Broken Heart – Taylor Swift

The next day was the concert and needless to say, it was incredible. Taylor Swift fans are some of the kindest fanbase ever. All sharing bracelets, making friends and looking after each other. Maybe even Claire has been converted into a Swiftie!!!!!
