Marketing madness

I have neglected my little blog recently....time to get on!
I have recently discovered the joy of designing bags..... and I have decided that this is the main direction that LSB is going to take!
Everything from swimming bags to oil cloth changing bags...... drawstring bags to peg bags! You can never have too many bags!!
I have also recently started selling on Ebay..... a couple of sales in the first week, which I am pleased with.

Festival oilcloth bag
Scottie dog oilcloth messenger
 The website is still under construction but we had a meeting last week and things have been tweaked quite a bit and the launch date should be round the corner.
Have also got a meeting with a PR lady this week who is going to let me know about advertising in the local area. 
Once the website goes live I will start up a whole new marketing campaign!
Been busy creating again this week.... let me know what you think.

Anyway, really will try to update each week now!! Keep following for chances to win freebies!
And please pass on the BLOG links to your friends.

April Already

I can't believe it's April already..... the last few months have just flown by and now the Easter holidays are upon us!
Over the last few months I have been busy getting ready for the Royal Wedding......lots of red/white/blue spot bunting so it is suitable for all occasions not just the Royal Wedding. Also been working on lots of felt/fleece brooches and hair bands which will be fabulous for the big day.
I've also been incredibly busy uploading products for the relaunch of Wow Thank You where I will have my own little LSB shop.

I am off to the theatre tomorrow with my fabulous mum.... We are going to see Calendar Girls. Yesterday had a lovely day out shopping with my eldest daughter and managed to squeeze in a girly lunch too..... Soooo, todays BLOG is dedicated to all things girly! Have a great week x x x

Hi..... note to self..... must try hader to keep up to date with the blog!
So, today I have decided to join all my fellow 'crafters' and post a weekly blog on fabulous things I have found on the wonderful Folksy site.....so first I needed to think of a theme...
I've had a think back to events that have happened this week and things that have occupied my mind and I am going for 'Rule Brittania' for two reasons 1) I LOVE making my Union Jack cushions and have been busy with these this week and 2) Me and Mr Lockstock actually managed a 'date' last night and went off to the cinema to watch the fantastic 'King's Speech'
So here we go......!
