New Year, New Start, New Business

Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful break from the normal hectic routine.
I have to apologise for not posting any pictures of my home decorated but the lighting has been so dull recently that the pictures never came out right.

It may be the Twelfth Night, but the wreath I made will stay fresh for another couple of months, it would be such a waste to throw it away so it will stay firmly on the front door until it starts to wilt. I took a course on wreath making last year so I will upload a tutorial on how you can achieve this look yourself later in the year.

I have some really exciting developments in progress. Firstly I have registered my company name Bluebells and Bunting Limited and the ball has really started to roll with that.
Secondly, over Christmas I decided to apply to a couple of webshops, and  Both of these stores really promote small UK based businesses which mainly produce handmade gifts and homewares.
Considering notonthehighstreet decline 95% of their applicants I wasn't expecting much, however after only a couple of days after applying I was delighted to see an email in my inbox from both companies saying that I they would love to feature me as a seller!
I of course now have a lot of figures to work out and a lot of thinking to do, but a lot of doors have now begun to open and it's so satisfying to hear people in the industry appreciate my work.

2012 will see the Queens Diamond Jubilee and I have already started on designs for this, keeping in the theme of quintessentially British. Will any of you in the UK or further afield be celebrating?

  3. Lovely news, Ally! Glad to hear that your business is off to a rolling start this 2012. Setting up your own business is a lot of work. But don't worry. I am sure everything will be alright. Just take things one day at a time, and don't forget to enjoy what you are doing. :)
