New Year - New Look!

Posted on


Happy New Year!!

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for a while, December just flew by and  before I knew it, Christmas had come and gone and suddenly we were in 2013.  So glad the world didn't end on the 21st...I got a lovely watch from DH and it would have been a shame if I'd not got to wear it!

The site has changed somewhat......After being told it was the website equivlent of a Avocado bath, I thought I had better have a re-desgin.  I think I am happy with it...but may still make some tweaks here and there.

I was also told my plaques were a 'little out of fashion' so I was pleased to get a repeat commission for a bedroom plaque - sophie plaque 1 It's the same as her older sister Chloe's, but in lilac.  Has been a while since I'd got the paints out so it felt really good to be painting a plaque again.

So I look forward to 2013...hoping that with oodles of hard work and promotion The Dragonfly will take flight and soar!

That's really it so far....Have not really got back into the swing of things yet after taking some time out from making.  But starting tomorrow, it's all action, action, action as I work to acheive success in this new year!

To end the day, I am off to take a look at the first Handmade Monday of 2013!! 

Bye for now

  1. Cute plaque! And yes, it's sometimes hard to get back to the "real world" after the holidays or a vacation etc, but here we all area. I think I need to do some redo on my website too, but I'm not looking forward to it. :)

  2. What a beautiful photo of Jersey. I like the new look, it looks calming and easy on the eye. The plaque is great, it's nice to get back into something that you don't do very often, and dotty ribbon always looks good. :) Have a great week Jan x PS...... I keep some of the socks for myself :)

  3. Websites are never "finished" - revamps are sometimes good. The plaque is lovely!

  4. I'm another who is having a revamp of the website - I think they need to continue to change as what you make changes over time too.

    Your plaque is lovely and I am amazed that someone said it was out of fashion - they are always so popular. Hope you have a good week.
