Christmas 2008 I said aloud “I would like to make bags and sell them on the internet”. October 2009 I finally joined Felt and, really, it has all been uphill since then. I would just like to say that I am grateful, completely and utterly, overwhelmingly and totally, for the way things seem to have gone since then and for all involved in helping me along my pottering way. I count myself humble when I look around and see where I am right now. No way in hang could I have done any of this alone, in fact the support I have received from family and friends has been just beyond incredible, I don’t know how to quantify it, but man do I feel lucky. I am close to reaching 100 sales in my Felt shop, I have been accepted into Craft 2.0 at the Dowse in Wellington, I have my first stockist Oyster, I have been asked if I would like to be a Featured Seller on Felt, and my beautiful friend Elwyn spent an overcast morning at the Dunedin Botanical Gardens sporting bags for me so that I could create a little minx look. You’d count yourself lucky too.
Time to share – I am doing a giveaway, a rather serious and yet celebratory giveaway. I would just like to say a huge thank you to the people who are there for me, family and friends, and so am giving away the bag that appears in the new look little minx. I have been thinking a lot about blogs and the nature of them, so to enter I ask you to think a bit about blogs and why they are what they are. Why do you read blogs? If you blog, why? What did we do before blogs? If you blog, do you reveal yourself? I look forward to your answers, and would like to say (another) thank you, gosh I feel like a lucky gal x
Giveaway entries close on Saturday April 23rd, the same day I will be at my first Craft 2.0.
