I thought it was high time that l showed you just what l have been working on these past few months. My new line has gone through so many hoops and changes.I seem to make something, think it is okay all the way through and then when l see the photos of finished item l suddenly see something l am not happy with and have to start all over again.
The photo shows the new sleep pillow, snuggler sack and the two 'posh pillows'. This is my look and l call it Rustic Romantic.
Just now l am building up a bit of stock of each item. The whole line only has 12 pieces which is a huge change for me. Remember this is the gal who had over 30 different items on her site and wondered how she couldn't keep track of things. Oh this will be so much easier to organise and work with.
Giving myself the parameters of having only the red, black and white colourway, only having a set 'look' has really made me focus. I have also really concentrated on the timings, costings and business side of this line. Everything is down on paper this time, my workbook is stuffed but l know what things cost and time it takes to make them. Everyone who has been near the house since New Year has been shown the new items and pressed to give their honest comments. Everything has been noted and digested. I guess l have really thought this time and l am pleased with the results.
The web site is being completely redone and l just have to be patient as it is out of my hands now.
Now on a different tack here – MOLES. Thanks so much for the hints and tips. I am going to use the bottles on top of canes etc today. I am game to try just about anything. The garden looks terrible with the molehills so adding a few oddities like plastic bottles on sticks, can't make it look any worse.
Don't forget the giveaway. Getting more and more lovely lists.
Enjoy your day.
