HUGE apologies and a very Merry Christmas!

It has been far too long since I lasted posted an entry on my blog so I am very sorry.
Jim Jam Sandwich totally took off this Christmas and I was so inundated with orders that after coming home from my full time job every day I have been working until about midnight most nights making brooches and cards. Having only started with NOTHS a year ago and not being that well established back then, I didn't have any idea of how busy I could possibly get. I ended up having on average about 4 - 5 orders a day with some through Folksy as well. I have been so thrilled :-) It has been incredibly hard work but hopefully worth it in getting my name out there. It seems my 'I Love Tea' brooches have been my best seller to date and I have a few new similar ideas for the New Year so watch this space!

In amongst the Christmas rush I also had an order from No8 in France requesting Christmas cards and lots of brooches. Eve asked me to make some 'J'adore Cafe' brooches to see how they went down with the French. I was quite pleased with how these turned out so they will making an appearance on my NOTHS and Folksy shops in the next coming weeks.

I did a blog giveaway a few months ago which I also must hugely apologise for not announcing the winners of. I promise to do this on my return in January and two lucky people who left a comment will still win one of my brooches x

Anyway I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and very Happy New Year. Thank you to all my followers and fans for helping JJS to do so well. I'm off to Borneo for Christmas to try and soak up some sun (inbetween thunder storms!) and to climb Mt Kinabalu so there will be lots of photos on my return.
