Apologies for lack of recent bloggery.
I had so much lined up to tell you as well.
I’ve been frantically busy with other stuff, because this time tomorrow I’m going to be here for a couple of weeks. I’ve never been to Sardinia before, so I absolutely can’t wait. But of course it’s two in the morning and I’m still packing.
The other reason for my busy-ness is that mirrormirror has now taken on a member of staff! The lovely Siobhan (my brother’s intended) is going to look after the day-to-day running of the business while we’re in Seattle, so we thought this would be a good time to transfer all the stock and stuff over to her neck of the woods so that she can start developing her wrapping and customer service skills. So you must all place lots of lovely orders for her to practice on.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am. mirrormirror now feels like a real company again. I first started the business together with a business partner and it was great to be able to bounce ideas off someone and just get someone else’s opinions and advice. My original business partner left after six months for personal reasons, so the last year has been rather lonely and difficult, trying to push the business forward on my own. Now, with someone else to sort out all the day to day stuff, I will be able to focus much more on buying lovely new products and marketing, so I’m hoping this marks the start of big things for mirrormirror. Altogether very exciting indeed.
I don’t think you’ll be hearing much from me over the next couple of weeks, but I might try and send a couple of photos from the beach via my mobile phone just to make you all jealous. Oh, and then when we get back we’re going straight to Cornwall for a week, so you may well never hear from me again.
