After three months of thinking, organising, buying and making flat-pack furniture at midnight I have achieved what I had dreamed of – my own shop! I’m beyond excited and, from the amazing comments on my Facebook group I think that you are too.
I wanted to pay tribute to two amazing people without whom I would not have been able to pull this off. The first is an old school friend, Michele Donnison whose patience, kindness and talent for graphic design have made the website so pretty and easy to use. Without her I would have been lost and I still would be. She’s given me so much of her time and I can’t thank her enough. Secondly I want to thank Jon, my long-suffering boyfriend, partner-in-crime and newly appointed chief washi-sample producer and head tea-maker. I don’t think he quite realises what his support throughout this process has meant. Not once has he complained that there’s now pink sticky stuff all over the house, envelopes stuffed in the loft and even a Friday night Ikea trip was not beyond him.
I have a vision to make this store something truly special and unique. Coupled with the Facebook group I hope that you find this a great place to get ideas, share stories and make friends.
Once life has calmed down a little I intend to provide you with some inspirational crafting projects using the items in the store and, if I ever work out how to vlog, I might be persuaded to undertake some little craft videos too. In the meantime, enjoy yourselves, take care and wrap up warmly – it’s getting cold outside!
Love, Suzy x
