Kickstarter learning curve

#SherbetBox

Kickstarter learning curve

So it was a couple of weeks ago that I announced the Kickstarter campaign to launch an idea I have been brewing for quite a while, the #SherbetBox stationery subscription box. Since then I've been reading tips and scrutinising other Kickstarter campaigns to see how best to run one - it's been a very steep learning curve indeed. These things are always are more involved than you think they are going to be but I am enjoying the process - it just remains to be seen if this is a good way to launch the #SherbetBox or not! I've got...

New website and a craft show!

New website and a craft show!

After a bit of a break while I kept Sherbet Lane going with a shop on Folksy, it is time to have it's own dedicated website once again. New products are arriving this week and I'll upload them as soon as I can but it is a busy week getting ready for the first craft fair of the year! It is being held in my home town of Rayleigh at the Mill Hall (the same place I rehearse with my choir so I'll try not to keep bursting into song) Been a while since I last did a craft fair...
