Whoo hoo! Finally got a spare moment to start this blog!
Firstly thanks to everyone who has given me such enormous support in the launch of my new little venture 'rejenerate'.
Some people look at me like I'm a crazy woman when I tell them I take old unwanted clothes, bags and homewares and turn them into gorgeous new handbags and fashion accessories but I get a major high from taking unwanted things and turning them into something new and gorgeous!
I have been churning out the handbags like crazy over the last few weeks (with the help of my gorgeous mum!) in order to get enough stock to get to the markets, get involved in some design shows I've been invited to and get enough photos taken to start my website and pitch to some more boutiques.
I sold my first clutch, "Whimsical Wilma" (pictured) on my etsy site (rejenerate.etsy.com) the other day. I had so much fun making her and thought she was so cute so was a bit sad to see her go! I hope it isn't always going to be this emotional he he he
Etsy has been a bit slow - to be expected I guess given that it is primarily a US site and they are all pretty worried about the state of their economy at the moment. But it's a great way to showcase my little creations if nothing else - and I've been kept busy with lots of custom orders which are so much fun to create.
Hopefully I can get my website up and running soon!
