It has been a year of ups and downs but I am proud of what I have achieved. I have produced my own designs, sold my work, got lots of positive comments and a name in the area where I live. I have made mistakes but learnt an awful lot from them and has been fun finding out and learning along the way. I have also found that this industry is incredibly friendly and I have made new friends and contacts who have shared their knowledge for which I am very grateful.
Some of the highlights of there year have been:
Selling my very first cards back in July
Attending the Ladder Club and meeting some great people in the industry and getting invaluable information
Local shops taking on my cards to sell
Now to the next year. I am about to book a stand at a trade show and start work on some new and exciting ranges which I hope to launch at the the show as well as continuing with my market stalls (for this year at least) as it is a great marketing exercise.
Thank you so much to my family, friends and new friends who have helped me along the way. Heres to the next year!!
