My new business..feedback appreciated!

Hello fellow mummies!

After posting this is Due in September I have finally plucked up the courage to post here too - I am pregnant expecting baby number 2 in september, a mummy to stanley who's 2 next month (where does the time go?!) and a regular BE user, so I'm not just on here for shamelss self promotion..although it may seem like it!lol.

I have recently started up a small business from home, HeartBox, where I create handmade keepsake mixed media artwork for weddings, new babies, anniversaries ect. Probably madness. given how short of time I'l be in september, but pregnancy seemed to give me a surge of creativity and since I've done nothing but be a mummy now for 2 years decided doing something new might be good! I used to be a jewellery designer with my own shop pre DS, but for some reason having a baby has knocked my confidence right back to square one..

Anyway, I wondered if anyone fancied taking a look at my website

http://www.heartboxart.co.uk

I'd really appreciate any feedback (although please don't be too mean as I'm very sensitive with these pregnancy hormones - I'm sure you all understand what I mean!) The site isn't amazing as I created it for free on weebly, but am selling through a couple independant gift web based sites, as well as ebay and etsy, so its just a base really - and you can pay a fortune for a proper designer to build you one!

(oh and if anybody did ever want to order anything, now or in the future just email me directly, mention baby expert and I'll give you a 20% discount, and its free delivery on everything too..)

Thank you all..Leanne (33+1) xx

  • Ok I'm going to be totally honest...when I read your post I was expecting to go to the website and find some naff looking stuff (as most times when people say they are making stuff etc it ain't too nice lol)

    Good luck with the business hun...but I don't think you'll need it...theyvatr gorgeous!
    I've been looking for a nice keepsake box for ages and the only shop near me that sell them had 1 It was pink and that was about 5 times the price of yours!

  • Roseapenny - I can do any design in a neutral colourway, I have been meaning to list some on website as have some lovely biscuit coloured papers but just haven't got round to it!
