Let’s start with Happy New Year! New year, new aspirations and new challenges lie ahead so here’s my first adventure (notice it’s not a ‘resolution’) to write the equivalent of one blog each day in January inspired by a tweet about #blogboost from Creativesque. Admittedly I’ve missed the first 2 days so will have to catch up, but it’s been a not-so-easy start to the year with getting ill on New Years Eve and then the long battle to get back to London from Yorkshire on crutches yesterday but now I’m back there’s no excuses.
I guess it’s customary to think at this time of year about new business adventures and what you want from the year ahead but one step at a time for me. The first thing on my January ‘to-do-list’ is to get more views and sales to my folksy, etsy and luulla shops (more about Luulla later this week.) In order to do that I need to start thinking about making enough stock for all 3 shops, and there are plenty of ideas spinning through my head, but the first is to think about adult slippers as an addition my baby booties. Here is my first festive adult pair of elf shoes for my sister-in-law this Christmas following on from a custom request for baby elf shoes, but don’t worry there will be some more mainstream designs on the way so watch this space!
