I was interviewed last week by Jill Glenn, the editor of a local magazine called Optima. She visited me in the shop and we sat upstairs in the workshop drinking tea whilst I enthused about stencils, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and creativity in general.
Having talked about what I am doing for around an hour, it struck me just how much I love my work. That hasn’t always been the case and I am very grateful to be doing what I am doing now. It isn’t always easy and in truth it is often difficult. Building a small business, especially a creative one which involves retail as well is demanding and financially scary at times. Things go wrong, but without fail just when it looks like it might all fall to pieces, something exciting happens which spurs you on.
