….it has been a while.

I owe you an apology…

…..it may have appeared that I have fallen off the Earth….or worse…….a sneaky holiday in the Bahamas,  but rest assured I am here and …..well ….have been busy.

To catch you up, here are some of what I have been up to while it appeared I was on a break.

A regular guest post-  Perth Upmarket

What?  …success requires more than just talent.

Cost effective tips on how change can keep your business youthful.

Embracing change?  No thanks I like things just the way they are.

The workshop – Business Basics for creative people with the lovely and talented creatives of Perth Upmarket

A soon to be regular monthly guest post – Epheriell Designs

The price of desire.

Very excitingly my first article for online magazine ‘Tickle the imagination’.  A stunning publication by a fellow Perthite:  next edition out early December.

Launch of Facebook site: The market mill

………and in the coming weeks the launch of a monthly newsletter:  Milling around.  Offering resources that I have found useful in the starting and developing of my business – Cookie Dough biscuits, marketing and branding tips, successful people that inspire and encourage me and “how to’s” to get the best out of your brand.

and finally the development of my new logo (by the very talented Karma Designs www.hellokarma.com)

Well after that, think I need to put my feet up!

See you next week.

too hot to drink

Another hot February day.  I found this bottle of cool drink in an Indian grocery store.  I loved the old world charm and design of the bottle and the worn quality about it – contrasting with the bold and crispness of the label.  My husband was horrified that I wouldn’t open it.

-it’s for a photo!

 

who am i

I love perusing fabric shops dreaming of all the lovely things I could make. I can spend hours just staring at the same bolts of fabrics swirling ideas until I have a total collection (and of course a collection name) and then leave totally satisfied – without purchasing a thing! I love discovering a new business and pouring over every detail from logo and branding to shop fit out, staff and marketing. I love seeing an empty shop and dreaming what wonderful creation it could be turned into. I love baking …… and of course eating! I love creating the graphics and marketing material before I make the product.
I LOVE to create – there I said it!
I believe you can always better yourself. I believe there are too few hours in the day and a world of possibilities.

An experienced international buyer with prestigious department store David Jones- I like to think I also see the marketability of an idea and how to help create a product into a brand. A marketing graduate and owner of small business I hope to encourage and generate helpful ideas that will help other like minded people market their creativity.
