I'm Baaaack

Hi Everyone.

Well, I hope that someone out there is still reading my blog.  It has been almost 6 months since I have written something and I feel awful about it.  It has actually been a while since I have even read a blog...Naughty me.

Life is so hectic...With my beautiful family, my awesome business ventures and life - well, it just all takes over and consumes every spare minute that I have - which is great, which is what I love,  BUT....I should def find a few minutes a week to keep everyone up to date with Handmade Heaven.
There was once upon a time where I blogged more than once a day.  Then Facebook got popular and that is where I spend most of my time.  That is where I make sales, make friends and have found my creative side....

So, not only do I still have my passion for Handmade Heaven, selling, promoting and loving handmade on handmadies behalf, but I am also now a handmadie myself.
For those of you who have followed my blog in the past, you would have heard many times over that I am not the creative type, more of a behind the scenes type of creative..Now, I have found my something special, something that I love to do and something that I hope others will love too.

Its all about jars and more....
I love everything about jars...their shape, their price tag! and also the endless opportunities to decorate them.  My main stream Jar Love is painting them, but I am slowly moving into really decorating with papers, flowers, lace, doileys, etc.  It is only very new and I am very excited and hope that it will become more than just a hobby for me.  Actually, it already is and I am stoked with the support and enthusiasm that is thrown my way.  I now also know what every other handmadie that I have ever spoken to feels when they are creating and when someone who purchases loves the item as much as we do xo

The Handmade Expo is still going great guns.  We still have our amazing monthly market at the Ipswich Turf Club - still going strong with up to 100 stalls.....We have expanded to the Lockyer Valley and are doing twice yearly at Forest Hill.  There we have up to 40 stalls at a beautiful boutique market.  We have also just announced that we want to take our market to North Queensland - Townsville and Rockhampton.  So, busy busy...

So, I hope to stop by more often and let you know the goings on in my handmade world.

If you have read my blog, and like what you read, feel free to leave a comment...I always love to hear from you - and don't forget to let me know your blog so I can start following you too.

Happy New Year - Bring on 2012

Hi Everyone
Wow....I can't believe that the last time I posted was at the beginning of November. That is crazy. Well, life has actually been crazy since then.

Christmas has gone and was fabulous...New Years has gone and was great and super low key and we are now on the up hill run to 2012. I wonder what it will bring.

2011 was an amazing year for our family and for business.

Lets see.....Handmade Heaven Online has taken off and is actually working out just as awesome with sales online as in the actual retail boutique. This works out awesome so I can be a WAHM and raise my 2 boys.

YES, 2 boys :)
We have a new addition to our little family. Little Fletcher joined us on the 12/12/2011. He is totally adorable and is a fab little brother to Cooper. Here is a photo of my boys :)

What can I see for 2012....
Increase business for Handmade Heaven :)
Increase business for Facebook Promotions part of Handmade Heaven.
I have a lot of work ahead of me and I am very excited to what this year will bring.

So in saying that....I have a few spaces left on the website for a couple of handmadies to join. You can read the guidelines as to how the website works HERE
I am full at the moment with regards to Facebook Promos, but will let you know when spaces become available on that side of things.

So, Happy New Year and I hope that 2012 is YOUR YEAR xox

Thank you

Hi Everyone

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for being so supportive of Handmade Heaven.
Today, I closed and opened the doors for the last time to my dream, but I am very excited to be starting my new adventure of selling online through my website which you can see HERE.

The main reason and really the only reason why I decided to close was because we are adding to our family with baby #2. I have 6 weeks to go with baby being due 18th December. I am excited to be at home, raising a family and also working as well.

It has been 2.5 years in The Old Flour Mill and I have loved every bit of it. All the handmadies who trusted me with their beautiful items to all the wonderful and hundreds of customers who supported our handmadies by purchasing beautiful handmade wares. They can still do this, but just online. I hope to provide these same and many more customers with a fabulous online shopping experience...

I have some new handmadies on board as well as some "oldies" that have followed me over from shop to website...

So, a big thanks to you all and I will see you on FACEBOOK or around the Market Scene
