Introducing Kiki La Ru!






Hello friends!
It's been a few days. Time away from my blog always feels like ages have gone by, I'm so used to checking in daily. I haven't forgot you all of course! I've been busy getting something started. Something exciting: my very own etsy shope! Kiki La Ru (one guess who it's named after :)). It will be a while until it's really up and running; right now I'm still attending to the details, like logo, business cards, packaging, finding out prices and shipping rates....and I've promised myself I won't open up shop until I have at least ten products. 
I've been turning the etsy shop idea over and over in my head for quite some time now, and I finally decided to quit worrying and wondering and just take action. I am aiming to open up Kiki La Ru some time in May. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I'm giving myself time to make sure I have everything the way I want it, and a nice stack of lovely handmade items that I am proud to offer to the world. 
This process has me wondering if other people in my position have the same cocktail of excitement and worry churning around inside of them: excitement at the thought of making and selling things you love, and worry that no one is going to buy them!
If anything, this will all be an interesting experience. 
I'll be back tomorrow with a delicious old-fashioned cookie recipe!

  11. It's a great idea. I love to buy hand painted cards, I'm always looking for pretty gifts to send my sisters-in-law and best friends. I'd love to buy from such a sweet person like you Dawn.

  23. Congratulations! That is truly wonderful news, I am thrilled to bits for you! I am so pleased that lots of people across the globe are going to be able to buy your pretty wares. I said you should sell on Etsy yonks ago, so I am happy that you are and we can buy all of your stock!
    If I ever have the time I would like to sell some of my handmade pretties on Etsy...although I think that may be a long way off yet as time is a bit thin on the ground these days!

    Lots of love Morwenna xoxo
