On the 11th June I went down to London as a finalist of the MollieMakes Handmade Awards 2015.
Such a surreal day. The day before I was doing the normal, school run, big Aldi shop, bathing the children, then after getting up at 4am (oh yer!) and travelling down on the train, I found myself in London surrounded by some of the most talented and successful creative women in Britain.
A photo walk with Xanthe Berkley, followed by a talk from Pavilion Books and a Q&A from Pinterest. I came away with a head full of new information, a new zest to create a push myself a little bit further.
I didn't win, but it made me realise just how far I've come in a relatively short space of time. I'm hoping from here it will be onwards and upwards.
Thank you to all the amazing women I met for making it a very memorable day.
