Open for Business

Good afternoon all!  I'm so happy it's Friday.

I have some very exciting news to share with you today.  It's something I've been thinking doing for a while, but today I have finally opened a shop on Folksy where I'll be selling my machine embroidered pictures and some small accessories.

I've called the shop Stitched Up by Samantha.



I actually started the process a few weeks ago, but then life got in the way and I didn't have time to make anything to stock in my shop.  However I now have a bit of stock listed and hope to add to this in the coming days and weeks.

I've got business cards too - how cute are these?


Once I've had the chance to build up a bit more stock I'm hoping to do some local craft fairs.  I've got a stack of picture frames I've been given, just waiting to be filled with lovely pictures.

I don't want to turn this into a total advertisement, but I'd just like to take this opportunity to say that I am willing (and very happy) to accept commissions, so if you would like a totally personalised item please do not hesitate to contact me, either through the shop or via the blog.

I've never done this sort of thing before, so any suggestions for would be greatly welcomed.
