happy international women's day!



Happy International Women's Day!

I just love that video, starring the lovely Daniel Craig and narrated by wonderful Dame Judi Dench.

I consider myself very lucky to work in this industry of creativity & good things. I often ponder the fact that it's dominated by women, which is something I find very fun - I love meeting up with fellow designers for business chat, and also crafty gossip!

I think the craft & design industry can work really well for women - it's usually flexible, enjoyable & mostly very supportive. It can also be a tricky industry with super long hours, and it can be quite difficult to go from success on a hobby level to success on a larger more commercial level (don't I know it!). I think it's just nice though, on a day like this, to take a quick breath and reflect on the fact that all the lovely lasses around us (and the lads too) are doing some very amazing things.

So, a toast. Cheers!

Happy international women's day penny bunny! I think it's wonderful to see lots of women designers in the creative and handmade industry.

I do think women have a natural flair for creativity and pretty things. And it's good to see them taking their skills far and financing themselves with it. Hopefully soon we'll be earning just as much as those company directors in suits!

Fabulous clip...it's so easy to forget that most women don't have the privileges we do in the 'west'...
