We hope everyone is ready for Christmas with it being only a day away (how did it get here so fast?!) I know I'm not and my last minute shopping is to be done tomorrow morning. I am hoping to miss the traffic but I think tomorrow will be crazy everywhere!
I thought it was time to give everyone an update as to what is happening between now and next year with Love Handmade. Alana and I have decided to have our first market in February instead of January because we want to have the extra time to work out a few kinks and re-look at our advertising strategies! We have got some exciting ideas which we are already working hard on and we are working on getting extra tables so that we can utilse the covered area out the back of the venue. Designing of our February flyer is already underway and we hope to have that finished early January.
We have also just started a mailing list which you can find on the right hand side of the blog. We will be creating a newsletter every two months, which will include news about local crafters, updates on Love Handmade, and anything else we think may interest crafters and the craft lovers of Auckland. So make sure you sign up - our first one will be sent out late Jan 2010.
We have a busy Christmas break ahead of us but it will all be worth it in the end - both for us and for you! So until 2010 - I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday! =)
