I hope you had a lovely christmas celebrating in a way that made you happy.
I just wanted to make a blog post to say a few things now that the year is coming to a close.
This year has been a very testing time for me. Both business wise and in my personal life.
My businesses still remains in a 'wading through treacle' state. And with more businesses popping up and high street shops selling melts and such at silly low prices it is hard to compete with it all. But i keep the determination and TRY to keep pushing on regardless.
Your custom and support is so invaluable to me. I have no words to explain. And as i have always said, word of mouth really is the best promotional method out there. So PLEASE PLEASE tell your friends and family about silent songbird boutique.
My personal life has been the most difficult thing to deal with. And as some of you may have seen on my posts on my page i have had to deal with the deaths of both my in laws in the space of 8 weeks of one another, and over the festive period and one (my mother in law) was sudden and unexpected. Making it so much more harsh. Of course there is alot more to things, as is the case with everyones lives. But as i am sure you can imagine having to deal with the deaths alone has been a very dark and sad time, and continues to be. The love, patience and support you showed me during these times when i mentioned about possible delays on processing orders was so overwhelmingly kind. I could feel a genuine care from you and it made me feel cared about and i needed that in those moments. So thank you, from the very bottom of my heart.
I hope that 2018 has been kinder to you than it has me and my family. And i wish that your 2019 brings you all the happiness, love and life long memories that you all deserve. I will continue on trying to get my name out there as the need for financial income is imperative now more than ever before. And i would kindly ask you to consider shopping small (with me, hehe) for if i can cater to what it is you are looking for (home decor, gift, home fragrance etc) because it really would mean the world to me and help me more than i think you know.
Be sure to keep an eye on the social media pages as i will be announcing the person who has placed the most orders this year with me. So that i can send a gratitude parcel to them. It may just be you!
Thank you for being here with me this year. And i hope you continue to support me/my business. You are valued here, i hope you know that.
Best wishes one and all, stay safe.
