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.

All of your designs are so clever! I quite admire your imagination. The bottle bags are wonderful ... with those little faces.

I imagine that your designs would do very well over here in the States.

Wishing you continued success.

Hi Lynne, I love your new baby bottle holders! I have eventually got a blog- very new to it though! Not able to do the Wee Green market this weekend. Too busy with work...and just started lambing on the farm! Going to have a go with Etsy and try selling some of my glassware with it! See you maybe next month at the wee green market! Rebecca x
