Firstly, A very warm Merry Christmas to all the customers, friends and family of Samphire Arts. without all of you all, where would I be? ( I’d have no one reading my ramblings… ;p )

I wish to thank you all for such a wonderful, crazy, busy and eye-opening learning curve of a year! Samphire has been busying itself in all types of new things to learn and make and getting to grips with Facebook & Community pages, advertising and creating a web presence…

Secondly, two / three big developments really, one, I might share with you later in the following year when I do more Craft Fairs (Country Living here we come!!whoop!whoop! Might have to drop the whole “whoop!whoop!” not very country like I guess?). This year has been slower than last but I guess I have had a lot on my plate especially with building the brand up on the web and getting our work out. Thanks to  platforms like Blomming.com (who provide such amazing service!), UK Handmade and the community word of mouth and fairs, we are trudging on… with a silent prayer on our lips and dreams in our hearts… (Corny!! I know, but sooo true! It’s been a very hard albeit fruitful journey to get here. I’m told I am being too hard as Samphire has really and truly not even been around for a year…hehe…what can I say, I’m impatient sometimes or at best of times, insufferable when I have an idea and get it into my head to achieve it… tehehe! ;p )

This year has been truly long in endurance and short in time! But I’ve been grateful for my network of friends / family who’ve guided, held my hand and been very understanding when I say “I can’t meet, I’m busy…”. We managed to get our work out and featured on e-magazines and even selected for Ipad covers (yup, I’m still chuffed about that! When you start out, you realise just how such small victories mean… so allow me, I’m milking it… till Kingdom come!! Tehehe!)

Ok, so…

News 1: We’ve invested in a press (YAY!!) so no more painful wrists, knees or smudged bottles and rolling pins (yup, that was me… Sorry Maria…) Now I need a name for Him, Coz’ I have a Victorian one we lovingly call Bertha! So I’m thinking Abe (short for Abraham?) Feel free to post suggestions for names on the Facebook page here>> http://www.facebook.com/pages/Samphire-Arts

News 2: Samphire will be taking part in the cultural Olympiad next year. Details to follow in the near future as we are working on themes, venue, food, music, exhibitions etc… It’s more than likely to be a 2-3 day event.

News 3: Ohhh… Well, I might tell you next year if all works out well… fingers crossed!

 

and at last, I wish a you all a Happy Xmas and an even better New Year!!

2012 here we come.....

Thank you to my wonderful family & friends who keep me going and those who following Samphire-Arts it is much appreciated and loved!

for all the love and support you continue to give

… and while I’m away, I’ll be…
