This month was mainly trying to get organised for the busy Christmas period and I also offered a 20% off on black Friday but I think it wasn't that successful, but you live and learn?
On a personal front, I had to attend 3 charity balls so was busy trying to squeeze myself into old ball gowns.
introducing PAULINE named after my lovely Nana.
Ceramic artist Ruth Gibson
I also introduced a new product range a collaboration with a very talented ceramic artist called Ruth Gibson, who has been working with ceramics for a long time and has many accolade to her name. She has many pieces in high end gallery throughout the UK.
I am lucky enough to have her only one street away, so thats 4 talented people all in a walking distance from my house that i have in one way or another got to work with.

Artist Adam Taylor
I was also lucky enough to get my hands on some original art from a very talented friend of my brother called Adam Taylor. He grew up with my brother in Shrewsbury but moved to Cardiff ( also with my brother? ) and after a degree in Fine Art he settled in Tenby, where he has drawn his inspiration from the surrounding country side and local produce to paint beautiful oil paintings.

Alternative christmas shopping night
This was a very interesting event and successful, I held it at my house was and invited some local talented people to join me. We sold mulled wine and mince pies for Age UK and raised £150 for the charity. WE managed this just before the snow came and ground everything to a hault!
Im going to have a little break after christmas and to get my creative juices flowing for new product designs.
