Two years ago my husband and I moved back to our Native Scotland. We live on the SW Coast, a Beautiful, Rugged Place where the weather is often wild! I have always wanted to live near the sea and now that I do the things I make often reflect that love.
My Favourite Colour is Blue or Turquoise to be precise and the name of my shop comes from a Place in Somerset where we spent many happy holidays with the children when they were small. Last year I decided to start up a page on Facebook with the intention of showcasing my work. I never dreamed it would be so popular and that I would meet so many lovely, supportive, talented,encouraging people.
I saw a sign for sewing classes in our local town and decided to give it a go, something I had never really enjoyed or been good at but it felt like the right thing to do. I am so pleased I did. I learnt how to make a cushion, an apron and some bunting and I found I really enjoyed it! I showed off my work on Facebook and people wanted to buy it, that was the start.....I made bunting, fabric hearts and lavender fishes and they were all very popular.
Then I was given an envelope template for Christmas and bought some blue and white paper from work and that was the start of somehing big that I really enjoyed. A lovely lady asked to buy some to sell on Not on the High St and I was thrilled! Then last week a lady in the USA asked to buy ten sets of my paper fishes bunting, again a huge thrill and I loved the buzz and the fact I am now an International Seller!
Now I have started making Handmade Notebooks which I also thrilled with as I have always loved books but never realised that I could make them but I found a book that told me how and this is now my latest venture.
I found Luulla through Facebook and hope that selling on here is going to be an exciting Venture. if you want to find out more then please do visit my Facebook Page and read my blog, links can be found below, thanks for reading my story, Best Wishes, Jacqueline
