Its been a few months since this lovely blog saw any blogging :(
....but I am now back and raring to go! sort of. :)
I adore this blog and all the wonderful projects, hints and tips that my talented design teams have added over the years. I don't know anywhere else which gives such a crafty source of inspiration.
But now I am doing it solo, so to speak.
I closed the brick and mortar shop last September 2012. Since then I have tried very hard (and succeeded actually!) to fit the remains of my shop into my home - thank goodness for Ikea Expedit storage lol, and a mahoosive loft. I am once again back to working online only and spending more time at home with my gorgeous kiddies (not kiddies really as they are 20, 17 and 15!) and trying desperately to be a wonderful Mum and homemaker. Both of which I felt were lacking a little trying to run a brick and mortar shop as well.
I also have a wonderful partner who I can spend some dedicated time with. Love him. :)
and my doggie Sam isn't on his lonesome all day as I am here at home again.
Sooooo, my plans for the website and this blog are quite simple. I am actually very desperate to create a simple life with as few complications and fuss as possible. The website will continue to have craft items for sale, and the original stock on there at the moment will shortly be going into a ridiculous sale. I'll be sure to let you know when thats ready.
I will also be adding items for sale which I have created myself. I am getting back to my grass roots if you like. I originally started Bubbly Funk in 2005 out of my love for creating and crafts. That hobby diminished as the website grew and then the brick and mortar shop came along and it became nigh on impossible for me to have any creative time at all.
My kids are more grown up now and I am finding I really do have more time to create and run the website more effectively. I am loving being home again and its my love for this that makes me want to make the Bubbly Scrumptious blog a haven for handmade and homemade inspiration. So I will be posting recipes which are tried and tested, any crafty item I create, hints and tips for simple living, and anything of general interest I think my readers might give a hoot about.
And, if you live local to Worcester you can see the start of my handmade items in a local shop - Kidz, in Charles Street. Bespoke cushions and some handmade card for starters with plans to do much more.
