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!

So many of you blog followers may know that I have a little obsessive passion for seeing beauty come out of life. However as we all know not all of life is beautiful all of the time and that is certainly even more evident when magnified by the conditions of poverty in non-western/capitalist nations. This has fuelled my desire to come alongside these entrepreneurial crafts people who have come from a place of poverty, in a way that I can bring their beauty to profit for them.

Fresh Air and flowers

spring flowers England

I cannot gush enough about the beautiful sensation of being outdoors!
It is healthy, soul restoring and peaceful. This is why I am truly grateful that the flowers are blossoming and the weather is making an effort to be friendly once more.

When the weather is harsh there really isn’t that same kind and easy atmosphere, one has to fight the elements. I can’t say how much I dislike the cold. Ever since I returned from my year long trip to the 30-40 degrees of humid Thailand, I have found chilliness difficult to bear. I am now easing in to the British climate and with that my inner wild woman appears!
