It's all change for me at the moment. After looking for jobs since I moved back to the Midlands in September I'm finally decided to make my own job and become full time self-employed. I've been taking plenty of advice from family and friends, have signed up with the enterprise allowance scheme (who should be providing me with a mentor and some training) and if all goes to plan I should be trading under my own name in eight weeks time.
I'm very excited to be starting something new. I've designed a new range of bags and purses and am currently sourcing materials. I'll put up photos as soon as I've made the prototypes and I'll ask for lots of feedback! I'm also working on a new central website with a cute and crafty design. I'm planning on keeping this blospot address for the convenience of all my followers, but the layout of this blog will be getting a makeover soon so it fits in with the website. While all this is going on I've had to suspend my shop on etsy. Sales are always pretty slow at this time of year anyway, so hopefully not too many people will be inconvenienced.
Thank you to everyone who has been supportive and enthusiastic about my decision, I'll bring you more news very soon!
