    Hi everyone

    I've just signed up, have been toying with starting my own craft business for ages and am looking for inspiration and realistic nudges in the right direction.

    Am a SAHM and have been an arty/crafty type since childhood so thought what better way to earn some much needed extra pennies to spend on nappies etc!

    Hope to be able to input where I can too x

        Hi Ali,

        Sorry for the long silence!

        Well, you've hit the nail on the problem is that I'm a bit of a flitterbug. I used to really enjoy paper crafts as a kid and painting and drawing in my teens, early twenties then I tried sculpture, silk painting, glass painting, etching and mosiac and lately (hmmm into my thirties by now!) it's been jewellery, crochet, soap and more fabric based crafts so not really sure what to do...

        Just wondered how you decided which craft business to start? I've had a look at your site and your work is really lovely, how did you come up with your business idea?

        I'm constantly looking for inspiration but can't seem to stick to one thing. My hubby's supportive of me starting my own business but he said he's losing patience with me doing a lot of talking and not a lot of action whoops
