Welcome to Dreamtime Designs

Hi everyone,
Finally, I have my new blog specifically for my crafting needs.
Allow me to give you a little background info about myself.

I have been in love with scrapbooking for approximately 10 years.  Being a SAHM around that time, I ventured into business & became the owner my very own Direct Sales Scrapbook Company with over 100 Consultants within Australia.  I built the Company from scratch with an idea that popped into my head & quickly the business grew & my dreams were coming true.  I made lots of friends, business associates & I was having the time of my life.  

However, unfortunately due to massive personal adversity I had to let the Company go. It has been 5 yrs or so since I have been able to look or even think about scrapbooking on a personal level, let alone think about initialising & getting another business up & running. Anyway, with approx 20 yrs of sales experience behind me & previously being a Customer Service Trainer  I am now ready to take the 'bull by the horns' & put my skills, knowledge & creativity into something that I can only grow from.

I have only just in the last 2 weeks fell upon the most gorgeous stamps on the planet.  Magnolia Ink stamps. Oh  I am SO in love with Tilda & Edwin.  My heart just melts when I see other peoples creations with using these wonderful stamped images & I'm SO envious of all the supplies these artists have.  Yes, I have heaps of scrapbook supplies, but NO Magnolia stamps nor Copic markers (which is what I would like to use to colour the images in with).  I just have to save my dollars to start my new collection.

Anyway, since joining an online stamping group & visiting everyone's blogs & drooling over their wonderful creations, I have simply come up with a FANTASTIC business idea.  Woo Hoo!  I am so excited because it is giving me the inspiration to start my own little craft business whilst working at home :)  I can't tell you right now what it will be, but I'm sure you will find out soon enough :)  All of my business skills etc, can now come back into play & back into a very similar industry that I was once in before :)

Until then, I have to find ways to get me some Magnolia stamps, Copic Markers & everything I need to get into the creative world of card making & the like, to get my business started.  I've already stuck some old pc games on Ebay etc, to raise money lol.  Every little bit will help :)

Thanks so much for visiting.
Feel free to leave a comment as I would love to visit you too.
Come back soon :)

P.S  My new business website: Dreamtime Craft Supplies Pty Ltd
& Dreamtime Craft Supplies blog. I hope to see you there :)
