Word of mouth

Pictured above are My Baboo Bottle Bags - big enough to carry a baby's 8oz bottle and can be strapped onto a buggy by thier ears!

The past few weeks have been a bit strange - definitely a time of change. We have had the decorators in so the inside of my house now looks great (to me at least). I resigned myself to the fact I would never have the time to do all the painting myself - many years ago it would have been a pass time I relished - now its a necessary evil to be fitted in between every day life.

It has resulted in a major decluttering and reshuffle of the spaces in our home, I love moving furniture about as it can really change the way we live. I now feel that my house it starting to reflect me and my family - such an important thing for an architect!!

The decorators we used were great, and did a top job even under my beady eye. They were recommended to us - word of mouth is so important.

This week has seen me finish a bag for a bride, I met her mother at the Country Living Fair. A great project for me to work on and such a nice feeling I will be part of her big day. No pictures till after the event - wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.

I've had even more enquiries from people wanting to stock my goods - a lot of which has been word of mouth. I always find it amazing that people think enough of My Baboo to recommend me - long may it continue.

I've also had an odd request from an company in London - I think I need to keep it under my hat just now as it may not amount to anything, but again such a thrill to be approached.

Tomorrow sees the kick off of the Wee Green Market's monthly sale of goods in Killearn. I haven't a clue what stock I have to sell, some new knitting kits and a few other new items. If you are in the area please pop in and say hello. 10am-1pm.

I'm watching Comic Relief just now and realising how lucky I am - if you do one thing this weekend donate some money to the cause - and ask your friends to. Word of mouth can make such a difference.

Spring is in the air...

This weekend sees the preview of the Spring Exhibition at the Green Gallery in Buchlyvie - 7th & 8th March 2-5pm. I am showing and hopefully selling some new bags and home wear, please pop in if you have a chance.

Also some new stockists are:

Please click on their names to be redirected to their websites and shop information.

I continue to be a busy girl but tomorrow I am travelling North to Dunkeld to meet my sister and friend Julie for morning coffee at the Birnam Institute, then further north still for a spot of lunch. Who knows where the day will take us as we will all be without children for the first time in what seems like years - all I know is we will put the world to rights. We may just sit and stare at each other and enjoy the silence!

Have a good weekend.
