Happy 2009!

Happy New Year to all Pearls & Whirls blog readers. We had a nice quiet, calm New Year after the excitment of 3 young kids over Christmas! 
2008 was an excellent first year for Pearls & Whirls & did far better than I had hoped & expected, we had several successful craft fairs & only one failure the week before Christmas which was very quiet. I managed to set up a website & this blog. I have decided what I like making & what sells the best & have lots of ideas for new designs that I hope to get started on soon & hope to get some pieces stocked in shops as well. I think I am very fortunate to have done so well during the 'credit crunch', I think perhaps many people prefer to buy handmade products, I know I do! I can only hope that Pearls & Whirls will continue to be a success in 2009 along with the other crafters whose blogs I visit who make such lovely things, a lucky 2009 to you as well!........
