All things nice - Creative Chic

I thought I might give you one last chance to meet one of our 1st Birthday retailers, before this Sunday's market. Don't forget that St Ambrose Hall, Woodend will be open from 9am-1pm this Sunday for lots of gorgeous shopping, kiddy entertainment, yummy cupcakes, 100 free goodie bags and spot door prizes. Can't wait to see you all there!

Our 'All Things Nice' business for today is Creative Chic. Two lovely ladies, Sharon and Janelle who create stunning personalised keepsakes.....

Are you more sugar or spice?
J: Oooh, both.

S: Definitely Sugar… I’m a chocoholic!

What inspired you to start your own business?
Individually, we began making pieces as gifts for family and friends.  We would have a regular show ‘n’ tell and then give advice and bounce ideas off each other. Friends started asking us to make gifts more and more. We could see there was a gap in the market for quality personalised keepsakes, so decided to join together. We both had different skill sets and style that we believed would complement one another. 

How did you name your business?
We looked at our product range, what we were designing; and how we viewed those products.  They were all our own “creations” with a “shabby chic” feel to them and were all with the ideal of our items being quality “personalised keepsakes”.

What is your favourite piece from your own range?
J:  That’s tough, I ♥ all our pieces.  Perhaps the digital design element of our range – announcements, invitations etc.
S: The Baby Keepsake boxes for their uniqueness; they make a ‘special’ gift and Name tiles for something ‘a little bit different’.

Thank you Sharon & Janelle, looking forward to seeing your creations in real life on Sunday.
