Lewes Women in Business

I recently joined Lewes Women in Business to make new friends and learn from others about running a successful business. I decided to give up the WI in favour of LWB.

On Tuesday we had a short seminar on Social Media and how it can help in getting our businesses ‘out there’. I already use facebook, twitter and instagram on a daily basis but I’d never created a video before. This morning I did! So easy too!

Here it is….

I think the link works but it all looks odd!

Introducing Cissy my Blythe (look a like) doll

Last year I discovered that most of the dyed curly wool I sold in my etsy shop was for re-rooting Blythe Dolls hair.I’d never even heard of them! After lots of searching I realised that these dolls are very popular and a worldwide collectors items. Being extremely popular they are also very expensive. I was told about similar dolls that sold for much less so I then went on a search for one that I could use to model the clothes I’m planning to knit, without costing the earth. Cissy (not her real name-her passport is in the name of Susie) arrived a few days before Christmas and although a little scary looking will be a very useful model as she is poseable. Unlike the Blythe Dolls Cissy’ hair has been glued on so I’ll have to live with that and just knit her some hats! Cissy is made by Tangkou and has her own stand, brush, comb and passport. With purple knee highs and boots she is quite funky and even has pierced ears!
