NZ Handmade interview with yours truely


This week I was really proud to be interviewed as a guest friend of New Zealand Handmade', the great creative support team I've recently joined. Their mission: to promote New Zealand artisans and crafters to the world via facebook and Etsy, and pass on promotional tips etc.

I was also a little bit embarrassed, because I'm not used to me personally being in the spotlight. As a journalist, I'm usually the one doing the interviewing! But if I want to make lily pad d's work, I guess I have to give it a go. I hope it didn't sound corny!


Have a read here or on New Zealand Handmade's facebook page. If you are a New Zealand crafter reading this, why not join too? You will be in the great company of a number of artists and crafters already selling around the world, and why not pick up some tips!

Here's an idea of what they offer: the amazing Kim from the unique wall decor company StickyTiki recently blogged about the top 13 tips for selling on Etsy.

StickyTiki receives rave reviews around the world and exports globally. I absolutely adore her work and don't just want but NEED a tree for my daughters' room when I pop them in together over the Summer time. I'm at the point where I need a spare room back for a real lily pad d's studio...
