  1. What are you going to do in 2017?

    As we approach the end of the year it is a natural time to reflect and plan.

    2017 sees Hull being the City of Culture and so many around me have big pans for the year. But will 2017 be your year to shine?

    Life at Oak House Studio starts to go quiet towards the end of November and I begin to plan next years designs, something else I have been doing in recent years is using fabulous workbook from the equally fabulous Leonie Dawson. They help me reflect and look forward.


    Designed for women who love to be creative and they really will make you think outside the box. Leonie does a life workbook and a business workbook.

    I have to say one of the essentials for me when planning and using my diary is the year planner section. I find this visual layout of the year is ideal for me to plan workshops, shows and even holdidays. I use a filofax type system so can keep back copies of year planners in there for quick refence for back dates etc.

    What do  you use to plan your week or your year?

  3. I know my husband, my son, my postman, my optician are not people who are likey to buy my stamps. This is just the same as being at a business network. But they say the average person knows a 100 people. So every person you meet every day know a hundred other people who might buy what you sell.

    So am I saying every person you meet has to understand the minutest detail of what you do? of course not, but would be great if they know what you do in general terms and know how to contact you, have you made that easy?
