this is... my creation



Sew Your Own is my little cottage industry business I created 12 months ago. I started out selling my Miss Buttons Kits with three Melbourne stores and I now stock to 70 stores across Australia, New Zealand and the US. Sew Your Own is featured in the April Issue of Get Creative magazine due out very soon, I received my copy today and was surprised to see that I received a four page spread!

For our next 'This is...' theme I would like to ask Drewzel for her suggestion!

I think it's time for me to lose my meme virginity, to be honest I've never really known hot to get involved, so if you could add me to your list that would be great, this might give me something to blog about!b
