changes...

it would seem that a few changes are happening around me at the moment...

little things taking me in new directions craft wise...

how i look out at the world and realising who i can trust and who i clearly cannot...

and one huge change that if all goes well in the next few weeks looks set to change mine and stephens life forever.....

so

one of the small changes is how i feel about what i sell... in the days when i had my bricks and mortar shop i loved going to trade fairs and choosing mass produced items that i would buy in to sit next to the handmade..
i carried on my cupcakes shoplet and joined not on the high street when we moved and just transferred all goodies to online selling - it was a great way to stay in touch with old shop customers and it of course paid some bills..
now i live so far North and have the life that i do, it is not possible for me to gad about at trade fairs looking for the next delight, and browsing through endless brochures is a chore i could do without...
so
i have slowly started to wind down cupcakes.. it will still remain over at NOTHS but will have a smaller more select range - i am undecided if i will keep my own website for cupcakes active..

with my mind shifting firmly from the mass produced to the handmade i have made the decision to start blogging over here

olive and harry is the name of my handmade company that has been pretty much just sitting around doing nowt for the last few years - now is the time to start looking after it a little more and hopefully watch it slowly grow

so
that's where you will find me

Sort of. I thought I understood html and all that stuff but it's much harder than I thought to use this new thing so bear with me!!!
