A new name

If you've been following me on facebook you will know that I have changed my name to Suzanne Lake - made from the heart. the lovely Leanne Woods at folksy made me this and some great

I hope you like it as I am very pleased with it.

I have been very busy with the new logo and designing some new items too. Pictures to follow on another blog.

Some other news: I joined a group called
Dead Good Designs last year in which we all get together once a month to bounce ideas off eachother and mentor eachother with our businesses. We also take the opportunity to go to more expensive craft fairs that we wouldnt be able to do on our own. Our next big one will be at Pensthorpe on the 5th and 6th of June

here is a photo of us at our first fair together. I do hope we can get a better one at the next one
I am really looking forward to setting up our little shop at the fair do drop by and say hello!

can't believe its been a year!

Ok so I had planned on blogging on a regular basis, but I guess i really didn't enjoy it that much....that said, I'm determined to get into this whole blogging thing....

As the year has passed I've read quite a few blogs and really enjoy them. alot of the people that I follow tend to blog every day....don't think I can set myself up to do that, so I will hope to blog once a month.....we'll see how it goes.

At the moment my little buisness is undergoing a NAME CHANGE. I know its really scary, but I figure its a relatively new business so its a good time to do it. My reasons are that with "Handmade from the Heart" it doesn't necsessarily state that IVE made the items. I've had a lot of people ask me at stalls whether I've done them or not, and now I think it will definately be self explanatory. my new name will just simply be

Suzanne Lake
wooden gifts made from the Heart

I do hope I am making the right decision. I am now having a the lovely Leanne at See the Woods design me something....I'm sure it will be great!

Well thats all from me for today. I do hope in the meantime you will pop over to my current Facebook page to have a look at some of my collections.
