It feels both like a very long time ago and a very short time ago that I quit my day job and set up little Studio Seed in the spare room of my flat. It also feels like two minutes ago that I wrote this post on our 2nd birthday! Obviously it's been tough but it's genuinely the best thing I ever did and I'm still loving (most of) every minute of it! I'm also incredibly proud of all the little achievements that Studio Seed has acomplished and it's nice to reflect on some of these at birthday time.

Some of my favourite moments from the past year include....

- Increasing my UK stockists three-fold including having my products in the heaven-on-earth that is Fortnum & Mason

- Going global! Studio Seed's greetings cards and stationery are now distributed worldwide including Australia, Germany and Switzerland

- Another succesful year of Bauble mania - this time securing amazing press coverage including Living Etc magazine and Wedding magazine

- Growing the Studio Seed team. I now have a great little team of Christmas Elves which has enabled me to grow the business and expand our capacity for orders and products. {p.s. bauble count since September is just under 1000} We also moved into a bigger, better and generally all-round nicer studio this year. #teambauble

- Really enjoyed playing a tiny part in the success of Dragonfly Zurich - a Switzerland based jewellery boutique full of loveliness! I helped create bespoke packaging and mini cards using super-luxe GF Smith products for this fabulous company.

- Organising and managing the 'Designer Charity Baubles' project which saw 13 amazing designers (including Rob Ryan, Lisa Levis (nee Stickley), Johanna Basford and Rachael Taylor) creating beautiful Christmas baubles available to win by donating to the NSPCC. (You can still do that here!)

- I LOVE a celebrity... last year Amanda Holden sang my praises on twitter and this year the lovely Fearne Cotton posted a picture of one of our very own Personalised Papercut Baubles with her son's name in on Instagram!

 

- Very proud of Studio Seed's slowly but surely expanding product range. Stationery is something I've always dreamed of producing so this month's brand new launch of these gorgeous luxe notebooks will be the first of many! Exciting times ahead....

Now I'm super excited about 2014 and all that is to come, starting with Top Drawer in January where I'm launching loads of new fresh, pretty ranges to the world! I hope you will join me in celebrating today with cake and something fizzy. Let's see what we can do in another year!
