Moving House

We've been in our new home for just over a week but there's still so much to do which means I will be absent from blogland for a little while longer.

I hope to fit in some craft time soon but I am sure that you all agree, family and home life should always come first and right now I need to concentrate on ensuring Christmas actually takes place this year ;) haha!

Have a wonderful weekend my dear blogland friends!

Clearly Besotted Design Team

I am overwhelmed by all you messages of support.  And stunned.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It is with much pleasure and immense pride (and a smidgen of smugness, because they are that amazing haha!) that I introduce to you the Clearly Besotted Design Team....

I know, how lucky am I, right?  When I first approached these five ridiculously talented and creative ladies, I had my fingers crossed that a couple of them would join the team,  Imagine my shock and delight when they all came on board!  There are no words to express my gratitude to these ladies for lending their talents to my fledgling company, I fully acknowledge that I'm the privileged one on this occasion.

The shop will open at 12:00 GMT today and I'll be back then with some Blog Candy to celebrate.  In the meantime I have the washing to put on and a bit of ironing to as usual haha!

Clearly Besotted Stamps

I am beyond excited (and petrified!) to share with you today the news that my little venture, Clearly Besotted Stamps, will be opening it's doors for business....tomorrow!

When my youngest started school last year I found that instead of enjoying all the free time I suddenly had, I was actually a little bit down and felt I no longer served any purpose, a bit dramatic perhaps, but that's how I felt.  After having my repeated request for another baby firmly turned down by my husband (ha!) I started blogging again and re-discovered my passion for stamping :)

In April of this year, whilst visiting my parent's, I stumbled upon my younger sister Jenny on the computer creating a picture using Adobe Illustrator, at the time I joked that we should utilise her skills and release our own line of stamps.  I can't believe what started off as a throw away comment has now come to fruition and although I'm not expecting any success, I'm elated to be doing something that I really love and enjoy :)

I want to say a heartfelt thank you to every single person who visits my blog, it is because of you that I have the confidence, courage and opportunity to do this.  Please pop back tomorrow to celebrate with me, there will be some candy up for grabs :)
