*Competition now closed - thanks so much for the birthday stories they are all charming:)*
Well a year ago today I did something very simple and very life changing, I listed a few prints on etsy. I remember thinking at the time, if I can just make 100 sales in a year that would be great. If I'm honest it seemed like an impossible dream. I've had a great year, made up of a great deal of good fortune, luck and support. This little mile stone marks a real turning point for me from hobby business, to full time job. I enter my second year of trading without a clue of where I'll be in another twelve months time but very excited to give all my time and energy to building whatever it's going to be.
Well everyone knows you can't have a birthday without cake! So I nipped into floriditas for a lemon cup cake and a hot chocolate. nom nom nom...
...and what sort of birthday would it be without gifts. So today you can win one of my 'Dishes I'd rather be doing' tea towels and a copy of Frankie Sweet Treats (I some how ended up with three copies!).
All you have to do to enter is tell me what your favourite birthday was. You can leave a story or just an age. Mine was my twentieth, when a group of friends and I when to bingo, it was such a giggle and we were all hopeless it's much harder that it looks. Please leave your comment below or on my facebook 'fan' page. I'll pick a winner midday on friday.
