My little secret from a few weeks ago and the reason for my trip to London recently... I'm in print! Not just a Storeyshop product either but little old me in swish clothes and a top hat. It is in the December 2009 issue of Company magazine and is a great feature also including a cake maker, a handmade wedding business and a knitter. There's even a mention on the cover, 'How your hobby could make you a million' (yes please). Very inspiring and I'm excited to be part of it!
The shoot was lots of fun but actually quite hard to pose without smiling or looking absolutely terrified. I'm more used to being the other side of the camera at Company shoots as I used to art direct them when I was senior designer on the magazine. I knew the kind of look (I think) that they wanted but it was easier said than done. Especially in the highest boots in the world!
I have already had some lovely messages from Company readers and some sales so all good! I better get back to my card orders. I'm on my last one for today and then better nip to the post office with the latest batch. I also have a personalised sock monkey to make, too, who needs to jet off to the U.S for a little girl's birthday!
