Some things in life are so overwhelmingly exciting they just don't seem real.
A year ago, in March 2009, I dipped my nervous little toes into the big wide world after a bout of Chronic Depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
I found the wonderful Stitches & Craft Show.
I learnt how to sew.
I started a business.
I made stuff.
I sold stuff!
And I slowly got better.
And now, a year later, I have another mind-blowing achievement to celebrate... my very first stockist!
A year ago, as I was sitting in my sewing classes and listening to the wisdom of some of craft's brightest stars, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that one day, something I made with my very own hands would be sitting on an actual shelf in an actual shop.
But there they are, at the gorgeous Little Shop Of Handmade run by the even more gorgeous Bec.

And I couldn't be more proud! Thank you to all of you who have supported me from day one. I couldn't have done it without you!
May all of your perseverance, blood, sweat, tears, laughter and hopes too turn into a dream come true...
