Creating success around the world - week 2

Welcome back to week 2 of my hosting the creating success around the world blog hop with creating my way to success. I hope you enjoyed last week and liked looking at Karin's lovely creations.

Why not join in with our blog hop? Here is the link up:

Today I'm introdcucing a very clever friend of mine, the lovely Lyn from JJ's Craftshop! I have quite a few of Lyn's items and have bought some as gifts too and the quality is second to none! 

Tell us a little about yourself
 I am a stay at home mum of two boys, I have always loved making and creating things for family and friends which proved very popular and then someone suggested I start selling my creations and JJ's Craftshop was born so to speak.

How did you come up with your business name? 
 JJ's is named after my two sons, Jordan and Joshua x

What do you create ? 
Our main product is Wooden Plaques and keepsakes that can be personalised for any occasions, we also make handpainted Glassware and plates.

Why do you create? 
It is something that I have always enjoyed to do and it is something that works around my family.

Do you sell your items? If so where? How?
 I started as a seller on Ebay then decieded to open up my own website. 

What mistakes have you made or lessons have you learnt? 
 I think you learn as you go, I know I certainly have. I also think you have to have confidence in your items I know in the beginning I found it hard to have confidence but the feedback that I have gotten over the years from customers has certainly helped with that

What is your favourite thing to make? Why?  

I love making gifts for Weddings and also I do enjoy making gifts for girls, having two boys myself everything tends to be blue so I love getting a chance to work with sparkly colours and glitters!

Like what you've seen? here are the links to Lyn's facebook page and website:

  1. i love Lyn and her products. I have quite a few bits in my house and always looking for an excuse to buy more :)

  2. Everything I have ordered from JJ's Craftshop has been amazing! Such attention to detail and the quality is superb. Each piece has very obviously been handmade with such love, care and attention. She's my first call for all things homely x

  3. Lyn's products are fab and she is a fab person too. Everyone needs to own a JJ's Craftshop creation. xx

  4. Lyn has such an amazing talent, i have ordered lots of different things over the years off facebook and everytime i get a parcel through the door from Lyn it exceeds my expectations even more. xx

  5. Thanks for introducing us to Lyn! Her work looks amazing - I'm off to check out her website!
