Tea of the week: making plans


Happy New Year! I'm making lots of plans for the coming year, which include many predictable resolutions which I won't keep, but also new strategies for growing my little business. Let me know if you have any brilliant ideas! Although it's manageable, I'm tired of working full-time and also running my business. It's hard to do much apart from keep on top of things.

I love my new diary from Shepherds Bookbinders, and William Morris mug from the V&A shop. What are your plans?

{PS The Papermash sale starts today - lots of items are 50% off.}

I love writing in a new diary, there is no feeling quite like it, but I am a stationary addict which may explain it. My plans for the new year is to try lots of new things and push myself outside my comfort zone, the thought of which excites me but terrifies me at the same time!

I'm also planning a new business and have been reading a lot of books for new ideas.

hi Lynne, Happy New Year!

I blogged the first cake of the year and it has some of your lovely maskin tape on... just thought you might like to see it {and the link to your tapes :) }

Hope 2012 is a successful one for Papermash.

You can't beat a nice cup of tea, a biscuit and a diary to prepare for ideas!

Doing the same myself!

Happy New Year!

I hope this year brings a revelation about your art/work scenario. Tough one, but not impossible.

Beautiful diary!

What a beautiful and sophisticated blog, I'm happy to have stumble upon it!

I felt sudden wave of nostalgia for London, I spent there 10 months on specialisation..sigh..

Anyway, lovely diary & mug! Greetings from Croatia!

Happy New Year!! It is so hard, isn't it. I often feel like I'm barely awake for days.

I hope 2012 is a beautiful balance for you.

Happy New Year Lynne! Totally understandable you're tired of doing full-time and running your business... doesn't leave a lot of time for relaxing/fun does it? That said, I love seeing how much papermash is growing – and spotting your stuff in mags too :) Hoping 2012 is a very successful year for you x
