I know we are 2 weeks into 2022 so this may be a little late but Happy New Year! I have some exciting changes coming up for Starlight. Firstly, I am working with a very talented graphic designer to give Starlight a new look. A brand refresh is needed. We are 5 this year and it's time to take this little business to the next level. I'm planning to launch our amazing new logo in February. Monthly Market Nights are adapting. I am no longer limiting it to my Facebook group. A lot of my customers don't have Facebook, and...

What a start to 2021! A little feature in Vogue magazine, and on the Vogue website. Take a look here.  I realise I haven't wrote a post for a while. A lot has happened in the past few months. My husband built me a workshop on the side of my house in November. This was a game changer in terms of space and organisation. My kitchen is now just a kitchen. I have much more space for stock.  Christmas was crazy - my busiest yet. I was so grateful for all my customers who made 2020 such a successful year...
