I'm still alive !!

Ok in case anyone was wondering I am still alive!!!  I have been a bad blogger these last few months as I have had so much going on.  On the positive side one of the things that has been keeping me from blogging is the amount of orders I have been working on recently.  Things have just gone crazy over on my Facebook page over the last few months which is excellent news. I still can’t believe how busy I am and amazing it feels that people like my items enough to want to buy them. It is only 18 months since I set the page up and at the time I never dreamt it would prove as successful as it has done.   Don’t get me wrong it hasn’t always been easy and its hard work – working fulltime in my day job, running scratchycat fulltime in every other hour as well as raising a young family and make time for hubby and Little Miss G means I never stop!. One day it will all be worth it I hope and I’m under no illusion that I wont succeed unless I give it everything.   I have recently taken on a new assistant to deal with some admin work which takes the pressure off a little.  I never realised how time consuming it can be sending invoices, answering e-mails, networking, wrapping parcels and posting items etc.  Now I have an assistant to do lots of those types of things I can focus more on the crafting and producing the products.  Anyway as well as running my Facebook page I have also opened a new online shop.  Now I have had a website for a while but its never really done what I wanted it to so I decided to start from scratch (excuse the pun).  I got the lovely Jamie from Click business Solutionsto build me a new website and then I have spent the last few weeks uploading new products.  If you want a website building I would highly recommend Jamie. He offers a professional and friendly service and nothing is too much trouble.  I will definately be looking to work with him again in the future.  Anyway to celebrate the launch of my new website I am offering the first 20 customers 15% off their order. So if you haven’t been for a nosey go and check it out now.  Make sure you register to claim the discount and to receive future promotions.   I’d love to know your thoughts when you’ve been to check it out…..
