I've decided to take the leap into opening my own shop - on my own website. Am I incredibly nervous? You bet. Do I have doubts - I am human so of course. The most important thing though is that I'm jumping right in and pushing past any fears and self doubts.
To be honest, I owe a huge thank you to all of you. Without my fans, my supporters, my family and everyone else in between - I wouldn't be where I am now. Your support means I get to continue doing what I love to do as a hobby, as a business, as a passion.
So many exciting things are coming up for Flora and Forest Jewellery. This year I 'officially' registered my business, I will be re-doing my website and launching my shop on said website, I've done more artisan fairs already in the last 4 months than I did all last year. Everything is growing and I'm loving every crazy minute of it. Yes, it can get really tough, especially with working full time outside of this business, but I can't grow the business I love without putting in the work.
I just wanted to say thank you. I could work myself into the ground, but without all of you I would be doing it for no reason at all. I'm succeeding because of you.
