How exciting it is preparing for the opening of my 'bricks and mortar' Tanglefrost gallery and shop: the colours and styling, signage and packaging, fixtures and fittings.
To a certain extent colours and styling were decided ages ago, when my website was redesigned. Yet actually physically recreating the 'look', in a real-life setting, feels especially magical. For the very first time I am beginning to see the cohesiveness of my designs and the opportunity to really establish the Tanglefrost brand.
My remit has always been: pure, simple and elegant. Slowly I am beginning to see this emerging.
The official opening has now been set: Saturday 12 November 2016. A week later, we have the Christmas Lights switch-on in Leek... so the timing is perfect!
I feel a flurry of spiralling emotions right now but most of all an overwhelming thank-fullness. I cannot quite believe this amazing opportunity and how warmly I have been welcomed into the local community. So much awe-inspiring gratitude for the incredible support and encouragement I have received from loved ones and dear friends too.
Wow! Thank you!
