I’m trying to get back in to the habit of blogging regularly again, because I’ve really missed it over the chaos of the last few months. Not writing my blog has meant I’ve not really done much reading of other peoples blogs either, and that has made me sad.
The shop is all up and running, we’re in our first full week of trade, and we’ve got some classes booked up already, so I’m super excited. I’m really enjoying being able to set my own pace of working and feeling confident, despite having the succeed/fail challenge lay right on my shoulders. We’re at a point where we can open and start selling (thank God!) but there is still a huge long to do list, and most of the fun stuff is already done. The plan for this week is admin, admin and more admin. But then next week I need to work on some kits to sell. We’re thinking pincushions, aprons, bunting and small bags. Obviously, it can grow from there. Yay!
But, I don’t want to bore you silly with work talk, and I do want to keep this blog as my own, personal Dressmaking Diary, so I promise, while I will talk about work from time to time, you will not see any adverts or promos here. For that stuff you can go to our business blog at craftysewandso.com.
I’d better start catching up on my summer makes, eh? :D
I've also worn it at work last week for Frock Friday, which we are starting each week. We want to show off our beautiful selection of fabric and patterns so will be wearing something particularly nice each friday. Its so nice being able to set out own rules about things like that. I am really enjoying self-employed-ness, just don't ask me about Sage Accounting!
I'll be back next week, promise!
