Made By Fatima

I've opened a shop!! There isn't much more I can say or a better way of putting it - just simply saying 'I've opened shop' :).

People who know/follow/have seen me probably know I like henna and I love the patterns, trying new ones and also colours, so I decided to put all of this to some use. Well, I didn't decide to consciously do this, it just happened really!

It started before Christmas - a few months before actually, when I wanted to get something for a friend that she wouldn't have, something affordable yet personal and it took me a while because, honestly, I'm not too good at getting gifts. In the end, I bought a notebook that had a plain cover and decided to doodle all over it. It was my way of giving her something she couldn't get anywhere else - plus I have a soft spot for notebooks, or books of any kind.

So slowly I built up a pattern and began to colour -  experimented with pencils and also coloured pens - and finally I had a completed notebook :) my first ever one *happy me*.

Before I gave the book, I'd shown it to a few people and it was suggested that maybe I could sell a few, and so, once I'd given the present, I thought why not?!

And here I am....I've opened a shop on Etsy and it's called Made By Fatima :). I haven't got many products but I plan to slowly build up, hopefully selling as I go along! My ambition is to eventually decorate a scrap book cover :) - once I've sold a few I think! I can add names and specific colours, so if there is something you really want, I can add it into one you like! Or make one for you specially - hence 'personalised'. So check it out and let me know what you think. Also, if you like what you see, don't forget to share it!!

Also, there is now a button on my blog that will take you directly to my shop! Go on, press it! :P
