At the start of the year was my first ever craft fair - 3 months after learning to drive.
I'm now stocking the felt that I love to use, as well as ribbons, buttons, bias, card and trimmings.
I've been to my first trade fair...as Handmade Haven.
I've sent parcels all round the world (and now have a map to stick pins in). I've made things that I never would have attempted unless someone said "Can you just make me....."
I've worked with/I'm working with some amazing businesses - both local and international.
By the end of the year I've done numerous fairs and events and now, now I have my very own workshop!
I feel slightly overwhelmed and rather humbled to think of all my goodies spread across the world, to think of everything I've achieved this year. This would not have been possible without my fabulous Hubby who encourages me continually, who put up the workshop and made it perfect, who is the perfect soul mate. I've also met some fabulous people doing the craft fairs..many whom I think I can now call a friend, as with many of my online customers, who return for more things - I must be doing something right ;)
So, to 2013. I have already got my first Soap Making Demo booked for the beginning of January! Ooh, I can't wait to see what the rest of the year is going to bring :)
