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!

A Rest At ile Tudy

A Rest At Ile Tudy  By Christine Graham

sketchbook and poemThe boat was gentle rocking, as it had done on the outward crossing, but then I was a different person, an exhausted grey wraith. Closed in on myself like a limpet, clinging to the rock, waiting for the returning tide.

Woodland breeze

Hello folks!

Having just shared about the wonders of being outdoors I just wanted to encourage those readers living in the UK especially In the midlands area that Bluebell walk in Shrawley Wood is well worth an afternoon visit!

It would also be lovely for students new to the area, Internationals and tourists visiting Worcestershire to experience as it is quintessentially British, and really the best of England outdoors!

The sounds of birds, lambs, and bees is just so other than what you normally hear, and the smells!!!

Oh the flowers smell glorious! It is most certainly soul food! Continue reading

Russian Tea Party

Ukraine Easter tea party

Bank Holiday Monday is just past and it left me with a wonderful subject to write about as we had a Russian Tea Party!

As I assured people we invited ‘Don’t worry everyone Russian drinking traditions does not include hours of standing on your head whilst slurping various weird teas made out of what looks like weeds.. or does it?’ Here is actually what was involved with our sun warmed party in the garden; Continue reading

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
