Isn't setting up a business fun!? Well, it is until the practicalities come into the frame. I have to try and sell things, manage rejection (of course I won't take it personally) be organised and network!

My overall aim is to raise enough income from my own designs and private workshops to then be able to work for one or two days on voluntary basis within the community. If anyone thinks volunteering is naff then can I just say that apart from having been a volunteer on and off for ages, I was actually a manager of volunteers for a charity for some time and worked with the most fantastic people of all ages.  Trust me, you almost always get more back than you put in. Note to self - do an article on value of volunteering!

If you might consider supporting us in some way, then here are a few examples about how you can:

  • At a very simple level, when you want to buy cards and small gifts, have a look at our shop - coming soon - or give me a call. We will be doing collage cards of local areas too, Hoylake, Wallasey, West Kirby, Oxton so far and with more to come.  Some designs are currently on sale at Le Bizz in West Kirby, Le Jardin in Oxton Village,Newsmag in Hoylake and now Linghams in Heswall where I also have a small photographic exhibition on.
  • Most of our photographs are available to buy as prints so please contact us for further information.
  • Consider holding a party.  You can raise some extra income for yourself or even your favourite charity. This would be good for us as we could also tell people about our vision, aims etc.
  • We are trying to source premises so if you are aware of any vacant shops or community/church halls where we could have a permanent base, then please let us know!
  • If you have any bits of unwanted jewellery, interesting pieces of fabric or anything which could be successfully revamped, then give us a call, maybe we could use it.
  • Give our name to any contacts who may be interested in what we do, you never know where it might lead...
  • Send our website address to your own contacts please!

I thing that's enough for starters, and I don't want to chase people away already so thank you for reading this!
