So, after a bit of consideration and a nice nudge from a friend I have decided to start a blog regarding my creations.
In 2011 I became a new mum and whilst I enjoyed working fulltime in Marketing I have decided that it's really not much my thing anymore. So, late last year I decided to start putting my 'free time' to use and embroider a few items to sell at a market stall. The day was a success, in my eyes anyway, and the start of my new business venture... Kelly Maris Creations.
Now, a few months down the track I have created a facebook page and am on the way to a website and a few other little added favours.
Just last month I completed a custom order for my little cousin. He was attending a wedding for a work colleague and wanted to give something that was a little different. I was very happy to oblige and quite impressed with how the bath towel set turned out. The photo's can be viewed on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kelly-Maris-Creations/216501918431550#!/photo.php?fbid=247208225360919&set=a.226713097410432.56267.216501918431550&type=1&theater
And now, I am working on two orders for one of my aunties. One is for a new baby and the other is for my aunty herself. I am halfway through the little ones order of a bath towel set, singlets and some shoulder cloths (much easier than carrying round an entire cloth nappy for those 'emergencies').
My other project is my first as a 'seamstress'. I'm a little scared of this one as I have to go by eye but I think it will turn out a huge success! I don't want to give too much away for either project but I am looking forward to being able to share the photos of the projects along the way and the finished product.
