Wow, what a fun learning curve!

Wow, what a ride it has been. In May this year, my husband and I sat down to discuss the family budget! Next year, we’ll have 3 kids in private school and another still to come. The budget has to tighten somehow. I then sat down to spend the night sewing for my 5 year old daughter, yet another dress…….

So it was then…….I decided to enter the world of handmade crafts and decide ok, now what on Earth could I possibly sell and would anyone like what I make. I had always had compliments on what I have made, and a few friends have said ‘you could sell that!’ But could I actually ????

Well, it is now August and I am loving it! I have sold items, even to people I have never met (yes that ‘s right my sister-in-law no longer has to buy things so I feel better! Thanks Megan).

I now have a Facebook site http://www.facebook.com/sewnbyleanne, a website http://www.sewnbyleanne.craftlaunch.com and an etsy store http://www.etsy.com/shop/sewnbyleanne. Oh my Gosh……

I have never been one to use technology, I much prefer a pen and paper! The learning curve has been steep, but wow the people in the handmade circles are so…… helpful and willing to share their ideas. A BIG THANK YOU EVERYONE.

Please be patient as I learn the ropes of blogging, but I hope you enjoy reading my posts and please if you have any suggestions for posts please suggest away…….Until next time, blessings.
Leanne
