making and opening shop!

I have been using some of my break time (back to the reality of work VERY soon) to finish off making lots of bits and pieces I had left unfinished. With this luxury of time has come the ability to start one of my goals I had quietly set myself for 2010 - to open a handmade romance online store.

Hoorah for new beginnings! I am excited to see where this new beginning goes.


As for today I plan to get the sewing machine out and make myself some new clothes. I will let you know how I go. I seem to be a slow sewer and everything takes a lot longer than I imagine. Plus I'm on holidays still, I might just decide to do nothing!


Happy Sunday to you.

Great news and what a great way to begin a year. I can't wait to see what is on offer(I'll have to save some of my birthday money for this now!!!). Good luck though I'm sure you'll be absolutely fine and very successful.

Congratulations! What an awesome way to start the year (love that bearded guy). Look forward to seeing more of your creations – including your self-made clothes. Good luck with everything you set out to do in 2010, and thanks for a lovely blog. xx PS. I'll try hard to keep the blog up too – inbetween nappies and baby poop!

Oh yay, Evie!! I was so hoping that you'd do this (partly just because I want to get my mits on one of your fantastic brooches!), you're such a talented gal and I'm sure this is going to be such a success!

I've been meaning to get over here to comment lately, and I'm so happy to see that you're doing well and creating beautiful things as always :) Perhaps we could rethink that swap we talked about? I'll email you!
