update on the succulent planter

Remember my post on ‘revamping succulents’?  That was two months ago and I wanted to show you how they happy they have become!

interview with Small Business Bliss

At the end of July, Lizzie Rose Jewellery was chosen to be a small business featured on Small Business Bliss, a fantastic blog run by Martina Iring.  Martina is a small business marketing consultant from Vancouver and her blog is filled with extremely helpful tips and information for the small business owner.  I have learned so much from her site as she explains things in plain speaking terms which even I can understand!

Here’s an example of some of the useful posts which you can find on Martina’s blog:

Hello. I’m back!

It’s been over a month since my last post and what a busy time it’s been.  I’ve been settling the family into life in Portugal again, reorganising the house & garden with plenty of DIY involved, travelling to England to my parent’s Golden Wedding Anniversary party, seeing my son off to university in The Netherlands, getting a new Puppy, phew – that’s all I can remember for now!

I’m also in the process of updating my Etsy Shop, starting with a new Shop Banner which evokes a more beachy feel than the last one (which featured a more tropical look from my time in Singapore).  After all, my jewellery is ‘for the beach & beyond’ so I’m trying to stay focused on this!

Can’t wait to start reading all of your blogs again too.  It’s good to be back.
