A while back, I was interviewed on the phone by a lovely lady called Sarah. It felt more like a chat with an old friend than an interview – Sarah was clearly very good at her job.
It seems ages ago now. Sarah actually became a customer too and did a bit of shopping from my website.
The interview has now been published in Craftseller magazine – I think it’s in the shops on Tuesday. It always seems surreal seeing something you’ve made or worked on in a magazine: there’s the brand shiny newness of the magazine standing up in stark contrast against the familiarity of your own work – something you know inside out. It feels very bizarre, but in very a nice way.
If you read my other blog, you’ll know that I design projects for Craftseller on a regular basis. I love being a small part of this magazine, which is growing and getting better with every passing month. This month’s issue features one of the original Dragons’ Den stars offering business advice and there are loads of real life small craft business stories throughout the magazine. I don’t think you could fail to be inspired.
I’m loving the new feature which is the diary of a start up! Rosie of Little Me designs is detailing her first steps in business this month and I think it will make fascinating reading watching the story unfold.
