100th blog post–should be something significant then……..
Actually I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to reach this milestone post but there you go!
And whilst I have a number of things I’d like to blog, I didn’t feel that they were as significant as this one so here goes nothing…….
Basically I would just like to say a big ‘Tack så mycket’, ‘Tussen Takk, ‘Molto Grazie’ Vielen Dank’ and ‘Thank you very much’ for all the lovely ladies around the world who have supported my designs since I started selling them here!
Its rather sweet really, but a few years back, I just enjoyed making wristlets for all my a-ha friends whom I used to meet up with for concerts and the like (no more of those occasions to look forward to now, boo-hoo! ) However, I guess that’s how it all started in earnest and with that, once they and the other pretties I make were posted here, the orders took off!
Firstly, I decided to use the money for funding travel to concerts as trust me, it was never cheap and I originally used to call it my ‘Morten Harket Entertainment Fund’ and it came in very handy indeed, so many thanks to all who made a contribution to such a worthy cause! LOL
Now it’s taken on a bigger meaning in my life and I have to say, I enjoy every single thing that I make and have a very special little ritual (which will remain secret to me!) that I go through before every item is sent on it’s way around the world to all you lovelies and it always makes me smile when it happens!
When I started making things I never believed that anyone else would like my wares and therefore had no faith in what I was producing, but then one day, a dear friend by the name of Katherine told me to have faith in myself and what I made (she was one of the first people to believe in and support my designs!) and she sent me a little quote that helped me along the way – it was this…………
“Everything is already yours if you believe it to be so” (Voltaire)
And with that, I wrote it in a little book and now every day add another quotation which has meaning in my life.
So to you Katherine, Flora and Steffi I dedicate this blog post, as you lovely ladies were the first to support my designs and gave me the belief that I could actually pull this off and for that, I will always be thankful!!
So once again, many thanks to all you lovely ladies out there – you know who you are! xxxxxx
Wishing you all a lovely day, wherever you may be!
Here, we’re getting ready for the Royal Wedding - bunting is strewn around the village and everyone is looking forward to the BBQ and frivolities – that is, after William has kissed his beautiful bride!
Fingers crossed the weather holds out, as it's not looking too good right now!!
Stor kram til alle!
