Welcome to my new blog.
What i am going to aim to put into this blog, is a little about everything i do within my business and home life, including my new love of frugal living, growing, cooking, preserving and making do. I will also share some of my money saving tips with you as well as my favorite recipes. I am also a mother to 3 great kids and being able to work from home is a benefit to us all. We live in country Victoria in a very productive town called Bacchus Marsh which is know for producing lots of types of fruits and well as many vegetable market gardens. I also grow our own veges, fruit and have my own chickens and ducks.
This blog will give everyone a chance get to know the real person behind my business The Rose Garden Boutique.
I first started selling online in March 2001 when i was first introduced to eBay by a lady that I had got to know over the internet from the US and its all grown from there. The Rose Garden Boutique has been operating as a full online business for just over 3 years and boy has it grown quickly from there. Prior to the internet I did a lot of work for Panda yarns working with designers to make their prototype designs and also making items to be photographed for their pattern books. I also made designer hats for a wool mill to be sold in the mills store, this i did when my children were babies.
I had first started the online business with the reborn doll market in mind, making clothing to fit these special dolls. In 2010 I started making hats again and found that there was a market for the hats to be for not only dolls and babies but also for photographers as props. I then moved away from the dolls side of it and now work only with the babies and children accessories market and photo props.
I opened my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/therosegardenboutique late in 2010 and since have over 700 followers on my page, which has been a valuable tool to have promote my business and skills.
So i hope this has given you a bit of an in site into my world, skills and the beginning of The Rose Garden Boutique.
