Yes, the winner of my Goody Bag Giveaway will be drawn today -
(if you haven't already entered, you've got till 6pm tonight, just follow this link - Goody Bag Giveaway!)
- but that isn't what is making me nervous.
Today I have packaged up my very first large-scale custom order, ready to be sent to a brand new boutique that is opening soon in Stratford-Upon-Avon!
The shop is called A Girls Dream - you can find out more about them at www.agirlsdream.co.uk
Later on I will be sending them a selection of my brooches, as well as a couple of the severely endangered Lovebird Wall Art pieces. Some of the designs are new and are not yet available through my Folksy shop, so I thought I might share some of the pics with you!
It is really thrilling to see so many of my items grouped together, and it makes me feel incredibly proud that made by lolly x is going to be available to people in the big bad world! But at the same time it is also a tiny bit depressing thinking that after all the hard work that went into making them, they will soon be sealed in their box and sent away, never to be seen (by me at least) again!
I console myself with the fact that when the shop opens they will be seen by hundreds of new customers and will hopefully soon be sold to someone who appreciates them as much as me!
I'm sure a few quick sales will soon have me grinning again!
