Welcome to Handmade Monday – and I hope the sun’s been shining this weekend in your part of the world – despite the frosty nights, we’ve had some gloriously sunny days here in Cheshire! It’s always lovely to see the sun shining but it’s especially welcome at this time of year.
As well as unseasonal sunshine, there’s been a high level of unseasonal sales here too – I can’t quite believe how steadily busy I’ve been since Christmas. I had expected (and almost even hoped for!) a slow period in January, and the to-do list that I’ve been adding to since September is still just waiting patiently for me – I’ve made no dents in it yet; I’m still just working on getting orders out!
It’s a nice position to be in, admittedly, and I think good percentage of the sales have come via the press that has been generated by Press Loft – one way or another. I’ll be doing a blog post specifically about Press Loft soon because I think it’s something which might be of interest to some of you.
Meanwhile, there’s not much that’s new here – but lots of new things to work on. Among them quite a few door plaques have been prepped and are ready to finish – a farmhouse in France is awaiting some bespoke door plaques (maybe I’ll show you them next week!) and there’s a few fairies to paint on the pink ones. And a couple of campervans, too – of course!
I’m looking forward to browsing your blogs and seeing what’s new in your handmade world . . .
