New UK shop!

Woohoo! Done it! I've opened a new shop for the UK.

threeredapples.coriandr.com

A bit of a shame about the name from a marketing/promoting point of view... "Yes, it's Three Red Apples dot Corian... huh... Coriander but without the 'e'. You follow?". Hmm, need to practice this one!

The site however is nice and clean, love the layout, the people really friendly... so I'm chuffed really!

I've taken the opportunity to revamp my branding with a nice new banner.

Etsy's great but I wanted to make sure my UK customers don't feel put off by the different currency. I've heard there's another European site where I could list in Euros obviously, but also write in French. That would be good for my family and friends in France (plus the bonus of an extended market). I'd better brush up on my French, she says blushing :-[, 13 years in the UK have taken their toll!

Anyway that's for another day! It's the middle of the night here, and I'm too tired to think anymore about it!

Birdie crazy



I had a little play around with my little blue bird today. I though it could do with a little plumpness! And some eyes.
I love the green and pink fabric too, another great one by Elanbach.

Oh, and finally finished and added this cushion
to my shop :



Can you tell I like birds!? ;)

Photo Experiments



I spend so much time trying to get some good photos. I really am no photographer! Still, practice makes perfect... This one came out okay, after many many tries! Different backgrounds, different hooks, light, camera...
Off to look up some tips.
