New challenge

This week has been very busy in my Etsy shop and many evenings have been spent with my table resembling a little production line.

 
Necklace Making

Packaging

Rubber Stamp
 
 
As someone who works full time as well as running an online shop, I’m finding that time is a luxury I don’t have. But all this is set to change....

In two months time I will be embarking on a completely new journey and leaving behind Dorset to move to Somerset. My partner has been offered a new job which means we will have to relocate. I’m seizing this opportunity to do something I have always wanted to do – concentrate on running my own business. I’m quitting my job in charity fundraising (a job that I love and will be sad to leave) to head into the unknown. So I’m faced with the daunting and exciting prospect of making Literary Emporium a success.

We hope to live here...

Frome
 A little town in Somerset called Frome. Frome is famous for its thriving arts and crafts scene so it’s the perfect place for me to live if I’m starting a craft business. It’s got loads of independent shops and cafes along with being very pretty with lots of countryside. You know when you visit a place and you can feel some sort of positive atmosphere about it, well I had that feeling.

So my current ‘to do’ list is:
 
1.     Look for houses in Frome

2.     Make Literary Emporium a success

I’ll let you know how it goes!

    1. Thanks Rosie, I really appreciate you’re kind comment. I’m going to need all the luck I can get! Yes, it’ll be amazing to have more time to spend on it – I can’t wait. If you ever take a trip to Frome I recommend staying in a little village called Beckington just outside of Frome. We stayed in a beautiful B&B there called Parsonage House :) x
