I got my first press exposure this month in Quick & Crafty magazine (christmas issue, page 71)! I’m so delighted about that, especially because I love that magazine. I was contacted by one of their editors a few weeks ago, they were working on a special russian dolls feature and asked me if I wanted to be included. The whole issue is actually very good (with free templates and step by step projects to make russian dolls inspired items), and several etsy items/etsy sellers were featured. There was also a recent article in the Times Sunday magazine about buying from etsy, which is really great because etsy is still not that well known in UK.
The other happy news is that I just bought my first house, so things have been hectic recently. We are currently living in a temporary accommodation (staying with friends) for a few weeks till we can move in the new house, so I’m bound to continue being super busy till probably beginning of next year. I am looking forward to setting up my next sewing studio and am dreaming of building a conservatory to be used as my studio when I can afford it. These are the last pictures of my studio in the old house, the little house box/basket is something that I have coveted for a long time from Rice.dk but when I found out their price I’ve asked my dad to buy me some direct from Madagascar where Rice manufacture them.
