Shop is now open!

new shop now open

 

After months of training, planning, and a huge amount of unseen hard work I can now proudly say that my new online shop is now open!
It can be found at www.lucychrista.co.uk and this website will soon be transfered into the lucy christa shop with the blog being easily found on the top home bar for all you blog followers to continue to enjoy.

I have to say my lack of monthly posting has been mainly due to all the other online work i have had to do! I have practically had to learn how to be a website builder entering the weird world of scc, html , prestashop, wordpress, servers and domains.. so much to learn. However, the learning curve was well worth it!
For here I can proudly say that despite the extremely tight deadline, the small budget and the need for a small heap of courage.
I have done it!

I should say we have done it, for without the help of my mum, who has helped me create my design, Rosie – my intern who has joined me just recently. My brother in law sam for his encouragement on the web building front as well as Russ who is just incredible and Rashid for helping me problem solve and face the challenges of the long haul. We this simply would not have happened.
Not to mention a team of other people who have encouraged me such as Catherine Bray with Blue Orchid, Marius my business coach, Kim at OSG teaching me about SEO. My dad has unconditionally supported me and will continue to o so as do all my family, esp to mention Is Abi, Mike and Sasha and Gwen ever a source of encouragement and general happiness.
So go see it! see it for yourself! www.lucychrista.co.uk

There are many products that i have made and bought in from fairtrade suppliers that i have not yet uploaded, but I will continue to add new pretty products every day with winter warmers coming up tomorrow, makeup bags and handbags, childrens changing mats and bibs. Paypal is presently the payment however card payments will also be added in a blink of an eye!

So browse, enjoy and be inspired by beautiful things!

Business involves allot!

LucyChrista beautiful presents and delightful products
Business involves allot! It starts with vision with an eye and a heart with a passion for something and there you have your idea! That is really the fun bit, being inspired and being able to turn that into a job and a service other people will enjoy too, but running a business is also a massive challenge!!

There is so much involved and so many things one must remember to do with marketing, web optimisation, sourcing products and financing, committing time to making products as well as selling them.. well I could go on and the thing is there are many of us out there! Craft makers, entrepreneurs and you are just all so cleaver! So many ideas and so much backbone I thought I must have an area on this blog in which I can share with you my findings as I set up a business and perhaps it will help a few of you on your way too.

Giving Gifts, ‘a little something’

Heart Gift

Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Weddings, Baby showers and anniversaries are all moments when gifts are so significant. They do not always take the form of a box of chocolates or an x-box game. I have often found myself needing to be creative about gifts with wanting to give something individual, thoughtful and desired.

Sometimes I have turned to an act of service lifting a load with the skills that I have. That is however quite rare an opportunity and I always like to give something more than just a help, as whatever it is, my hearts true desire is to give them the feeling that they are cherished. This means it has to be out of the ordinary, there must be a specialness or an element of surprise.  Continue reading
