It has been a busy summer here, with a 6 year old, 3 year old, in-laws visiting for a month, seaside summer activities and a steady stream of orders for me to work on. Loving every bit of it!
These are some of the items I have made recently:
These are a few of the things that have been keeping me busy lately! I have also been working with a graphic designer in the UK to create a logo for Pip ‘n’ Milly Creations and am very excited with what John from Thirteen Degrees has done for me. The concept is relatively simple, but has great personal significance for me. I am thrilled that I have been able to benefit from John’s talent, knowledge, experience and professionalism. Thank you so much, John! I am so proud of my beautiful logo and you know how much it means to me to have the bird incorporated. You are the best!
In order to have a website worthy of this lovely new branding, we will slowly be working on refreshing the website to improve the layout and functionality. We hope to be able to offer online ordering, though the custom nature of most of my work doesn’t necessarily fit in well with the typical ordering process. Please bear with me while we work on this, as the technical side of the business has to play second fiddle to actually designing and making things!
The development and growth of the business means that word is spreading outside of our local area and I need to consider shipping options. I will be using Canada Post and Fedex and am working with suppliers to find appropriate packaging materials that safely convey my products, whilst not vastly increasing the costs of shipping. I would welcome any feedback or suggestions you may have to offer.
But now it is time to get out and make the most of the beautiful west coast sunshine! Happy summer everyone!
