...was placed in this months issue of Elle Magazine! Unbelievable!!
I've just been to pick up a couple of copies as this is a huge milestone in Bagladee world. I have toyed with the idea of ads before but kinda passed it up as I didn't think my bags would sit well in most magazines, craft wise. Most people who read craft magazines can pretty much make anything they want and will most likely be looking for places to buy supplies. So when I was contacted by Elle Advertising team to be part of their 'Best of British' I sat and gave it some serious thought. Leaving it right up until the week of the deadline I said yes and bagged the last spot.
So here I am (bottom left) in amongst some lovely jewellery and accessories. I never dreamed that I would ever be able to open a magazine on the level of Elle and see one of my creations staring back at me!! Very surreal (I almost wanted to walk up to a stranger in Tesco and say "that's me!!").
I still cant believe what a month I'm having, Small Business Sunday Winner and then this......at one time I thought I was silly day dreaming about having my own business making things that I love. Finally I can now stand up proud and say "I made it!".
Cant wait to see what happens next...................
