encourage your hopes...


Running the store has been a life long dream of mine, and just recently things have changed up a gear.
I kid you not when I say that I have worked night and day since launching the shop 18 months ago. It's been a hard slog, too damn exciting and way too stressful at times.  It's seen me in tears and filled with joy & laughter. 

This last half of 2012 has been a whirlwind. 
From being invited to submit a piece for publication in Scrap365, to writing a piece for Sian's So This Is Scrapbooking series on her blog which was published yesterday (and there is candy involved, you can find it here!) 

I am a fan of Scrap365 so that tested my nerves. 
I'm also a fan of Sian's blog so felt incredibly honoured to have been asked. 

A few weeks ago I was thinking out loud about having a design team for the store.  There just aren't enough hours in the day for me to showcase some of the wonderful products we stock. And, as hubby keeps telling me...."you can't do it all!" 
 I might die trying though!! 

Today has seen the first day revealing our fabulously talented creative design team
I was flabbergasted by the talent that applied to join us.
To join us, and our humble store, to help it grow and flourish. 
I couldn't take everyone on, so agonised over who should form our first ever creative team.
We have some equally talented Guest Designer joining us at points during 2013. 

I guess this post is to say a massive thank you to all those who have helped me get to this point and supported the business, making it all worth while. To say thank you for helping me make my dreams a reality.  

Please do come and support the Creative Design Team Blog. We have lots in store for 2013.
