I have been looking at my business and seeing ways to help it grow. It is easy to focus so much on making and dealing with orders that you can lose sight of marketing. This year I am going to be working hard on spreading the "Bumpkin" word and have already started to write press releases and sent a few out to start the year as I mean to go on ;) I'm thrilled to say that this has already resulted in some really kind online press, firstly with the newly found, Bespoke Magazine, for the creative and crafty! I was delighted to find it and am thrilled to say they have just featured one of my Embroidery Patterns on their Blog.
Also if you love parties then whizz over to the fabulous Les Enfants Blog for a post about all the exciting trends myself and others are predicting for this year.
Despite the very mild winter we are having here the days are very grey and gloomy but they are brightened creating items like this "Primrose Bunny" party set for a little girl's 1st Birthday, hopping all the way to Australia.
Looking at those cupcakes makes me think it's time for a cup of Tea!
See you back here again soon, thanks so much for visiting,
I love all your comments.
