Let's start with an enormous THANK YOU to the lovely Louise at Red Haired Amazona. A few weeks ago, when I was showing off my school uniform bows to you all, she commented about how the colours for uniforms are the same as Australia.
I'd been debating whether to put them on Etsy or not, and after hearing about the colours I decided to give it a try. A few hours later I made my 5th ever sale on Etsy for school uniform bows. It turned out to be to someone on the UK but without her comment I would not have posted them.
Then there was the problem of attaching the bows to the cards. I tried glue dots, slitting with a knife and finally a hole punch (thanks Mum, that was her idea). I could, of course, just purchase some, but from past experience I know that I need to be very certain about what I want because I'm likely to change my mind!
Finally I'm planning more changes to the website and adding an FAQ page. I will be keeping the colours of grey and aqua, but I've been thinking for a long time that all you see if you land on any page of my site is my banner unless you scroll further down. This has been quietly pestering me for a while, and its time for another refinement. If there's anything you love/hate/want to see on my site that isn't there, I'd love to hear from you (and if you don't want to say it publicly you can send me a message). As I hope you can see from above, I really do value your opinions and suggestions.
Looking forward to catching up with all of your news.
