Small Businesses

Monday, 10th February 2014 at 8:52 am Leave a comment

People create because they just love to, but if it’s possible to make an income out of it too then even better. I love it when someone’s pastime/hobby/interest is turned into a small business. Sometimes accidentally 😀 Family and friends see your items and offer X amount “if you’ll just make a small one for me – no rush, whenever you’ve got time”. Before you know it, you’ve got regular orders coming in.

A lot of planning, thought and time goes into handmade items and that’s what makes them special. Here’s a list of my favourite small businesses.

Sue Green Artwork

I paint quality watercolour portraits of your loved pets which make a unique and personalised gift. I work from clear photographs so that I can achieve a good likeness and capture your pets individual characters. Other commissions also undertaken.
