Week twooooo! And only a week until Xmas!

Sunday, December 18, 2011
Well this week has been hectic! Not just because I've been doing all your last minute Christmas orders but because I've also been trying to get my Xmas pressies done too!

Plus because you've all been so lovely and supportive I've had to re-stock on fabrics and supplies! So its been busy to say the least!

What do you think of my new emergency re-stocking Xmas Decorations? I must say I'm quite proud of them!

Well I better get back to making and wrapping!

Happy Handmade!

My first week....

Saturday, December 10, 2011
Well first week in the shop... that went quickly! Can't believe it's been a whole week since  I was preparing the shop for the opening evening.

I've gathered a few new supportive customers and my online sales have picked up (must be christmas soon?) so I've appreciated having a bit more space to work and make a mess of!

I definitely feel like I've properly settled in now and most nights I don't even remember it time to go home! I've been busy trying to keep stock levels up and fulfilling your orders.

Thought I'd share a couple things that I made this week. The 'fun' cushion was a lovely addition to my cushion trunk- it gave the shop a splash of bright colour on a dull day. And the Noteboard below was made from some fabric I picked up the other day and instantly loved it! Good old America came to mind hence the blue button addition!

And last night my sister came with me to Stalbridge Late Night Shopping. We brought a few Jessalli wares to advertise our new shop too! It was cold to say the least so thanks sis for bracing the frostiness with me! Was lovely to meet some new locals too!

Well week one was successful I think so fingers crossed it'll stay this good!

Opening Night Sat 3rd Dec!

Hi Everyone!

Bit behind on the blog- been a very busy week!

Just wanted to say thank you to all my friends and family who came to my little opening night gathering on saturday night. It was so nice to see all of you and thank you for being so supportive!

Me with Mum and Dad

It was such a fun night- there was only three cupcakes left and about a sip of mulled wine leftover when we packed up! 

The hustle and bustle- shop doesn't look quite so big now!

Just some of the beautiful flower bouquets I got given!

Thanks again for coming (and buying) so far the shop looks like a successful choice and I can only hope that I can stay here forever- because I love it!
