Have you ever had an idea and just gone for it?
Well that’s how a year down the line I am now the proud owner of my own business, The Artisan Boutique.
It’s been a crazy year and looking back I really had no idea of what I was really embarking upon.
Let’s rewind and tell you how I got to this point.
I am, shall we say, a middle aged Mum of 4 boys, married to Richard and owner of our cocker spaniel
In my previous life I was a nurse for 20 years, but gave this up to be a full-time Mum. I happily did this for about 10 years before I found myself feeling a little brain dead and knew I needed to do something for myself.
I have always had a creative side , especially when it comes to putting interiors together so 2 years ago embarked upon doing an Interior Design Diploma. Because of this my home-based business The Wool Boutique was launched in 2017.
It started out in my living room making beautiful products out of luxury merino jumbo yarn (synthetic and vegan friendly yarn available). I mainly arm knit these, but also can needle knit, finger crochet and also sell the yarn for you to make your own beautiful products.
This was the ideal business for me as I was taught to knit as a child by my beloved Mum, who had at the time recently passed away.
So this is my tribute to her as I know she would have loved what I am doing now
From that small home based business an idea was sparked and here I am now with my own shop ‘The Artisan Boutique’ home of all things creative.
Stocking hand crafted products, many of which are local and running an array of workshop to allow people to tap into their creative side. Most of our workshops are aimed at beginners with an option for the more advanced if needed.
You don’t have to be an expert you just have to come along and have fun.
