A year or so ago I decided to start making greetings cards. I know it sounds quite ‘twee’ but I enjoy designing and crafting so it means I have a creative project to get my teeth into and hopefully make a small income from it at the same time.
I started in earnest with great plans of designing and making wedding stationery, creating a few designs and building a website. I soon realised that wedding stationery would mean waaaay too much pressure (I’ve been a bride, I know what they’re like) at a time in my life when I don’t need any more of the stuff.
So, I am keeping it small scale for now. I have a handful of birthday and baby designs which I sell on my website and on Etsy. I’m continuing to build up my stock and in the summer would like to get along to some local markets and craft fairs to see how I fare.
I’m really enjoying crochet at the moment too, and hope to expand eventually to crotchet goodies and perhaps patchwork baby blankets but we’ll see. For now, with 2 little ones and another business I have my hands full but I’m definitely looking forward to this new little venture and seeing where it may lead.
