one of my favourite design blogs, decor 8, just gave my etsy shop a sweet write up! i'm so beyond flattered and grateful for the press, i really can't tell you. i've already had a nice sale, a few emails and 2 wholesale inquiries from the link so thank you, holly! just wish i was at home so i could stock the shop up, it's looking a bit sad with just three little fleurs now holding fort there : )
speaking of wholesale inquiries, i've been contacted by abut 8 shops in the past six months wanting to stock my soft wares and it's forced me to really think about where i want this "business" to go. or not go. at this point, i just can't face getting back into wholesale. i did it for four years in canada and, although i got to meet some lovely people and was proud to be a part of some very cool stores, it's a lot of work and the deadline just seem daunting to me now. i want to keep making random goodies for fun and not have any real pressures from my craft work. i love the freedom that i can have right now plus there are so many things i want to make and explore with, i can't even keep my own shop stocked! so thank you very much, lovely shops, and i appreciate the votes of confidence so, so much but it's just not for me. right now, anyway. does this mean i'm lazy? well, maybe, but happy, too.
