I was there for a little bit of technical advice and I'll be making the lampshades for her but it's very much her range. She's got a great eye. We've had lots of orders already, in the first 24 hours, which is amazing and I'm really looking forward to expanding the collection with her. I know we've both had lots of ideas already and she's an all-round lovely person to work with too.
The other fantastic news is that I've been accepted as a seller on Not on the High Street. You've probably heard of them. They are a fantastic online store selling all sorts of loveliness from small businesses. No emphasis on the handmade, unlike stores such as Folksy and Etsy, but things that you just don't see anywhere else. They have a fairly stringent selection process so it's a great honour to be accepted. It'll be a great platform to get my work seen so I'm really quite excited. Also a bit scared! Things are moving quite quickly for Swee Mei at the moment. What started as an idea to make a bit of pin money is turning into something a little bigger than that.
Wish me luck :-)
