The prints and canvasses are selling well and I have now partnered up with Maria Dean to sell online. The website http://www.mariadean.co.uk now sells my personalised prints and canvasses along with other quality personalised products. It's a great new partnership and I'm looking forward to making some more sales and developing the First Impressions brand even further.
It's also meant that I have had to refine the prints and canvas design a little more, making the online ordering of the designs a little easier. It's an exciting time and I'm looking forward to seeing how far we can take it.
I've also been spending some time up in Wolverhampton at the business school. I'm taking a business course there with the Black Country chamber of commerce and it is brilliant! The are long days and lots to learn but it really is very good and I'm hoping that I can apply some real knowledge to my business and make it a success! It's been a challenging couple of years going freelance and rebranding in a recession and in a new town but I feel that I am firmer on my feet and really enjoying being a business woman and a designer. I'm so greatful to my lovely customers and clients who have been so supportive. I couldn't do it without you. I'm hoping to post again before the end of the year, I still have so much more to tell you but in case we hit 2014 without me saying hello again I would just like to say thanks lovely followers, you're making me a very happy designer.
