Well Good Morning lovely people Apologies, I have been a little slow at getting this blog post written. I have been mulling over the contents for a while now. And have not completely mulled yet, but thought I best give you some half way there feedback at least. Firstly, can I say thank you!! I was blown away to the responses to my blog post Creepy or Cute or Can I do both????
I had so much love and support and so many people taking time to write to me and let me know their thoughts. It was so lovely to know that so many of you cared. I think that a lot of the time when you are a single person business doing most of what you do on-line it is easy to forget that there really are lots of real people at the other end reading and viewing and actively waiting on the next instalment. So once again thank you for the love. The results were pretty much unanimous, only a few of you don’t really like the creepy dolls, and only a smaller few don’t like the cute, so that left the vast majority who like both and are happy to see a variety of things in the shop and on social media feeds. I am sorry to not please everybody, but you just can’t can you. But to please myself and the vast majority, both styles of doll will stay. YAY ! I really think that this is so great as I have read so many articles and blog posts saying, I can’t do both as it will confuse my audience, but you guys are just so great, you can cope with it all. There will be some changes though that have resulted from these findings. I am dropping the children and baby ranges. I think this may have just been a bad diversion as they don’t fill me with delight as I make them, which my art dolls do. I really like the mini-Bee size though so that will stay, just not as it is; no CE testing which will enable me to be far more creative and artistic and make these as dolls that are for decoration only; maybe perfectly suited to a nursery shelf.
If you want a baby doll, an elephant or other item from the CE tested range though, you best get in quick as when this last set of stock is sold out there will be no more, just a warning! Get them quick if you want them.
With Christmas looming in fast and Halloween just over our shoulders, I have been really busy physically making stuff for the Christmas markets that I am involved in, so this has meant that time for internet and Websites is on the NOT A HOPE list at the moment and these things will have to take a back burner for now, but I wanted to get this message out there: I really thank you all, and haven’t forgotten you, I just need time to do justice to all the ideas that are now swimming in my head as a result of all your wonderful feedback. Hopefully before the new year a new revamped website will emerge with light honey and dark honey and a little something for everybody.
I don’t know about you, but I am excited for the future now and really looking forward to 2019, to see where this journey takes me next.
