Seasalt and Susie Watson in Chichester

Interesting 'plants' in Seasalt window

 A garden-themed window at Seasalt shows plants made from knitting and paper and string, straws and tissue. I like the tied-on bits of green string. I can see mini Christmas trees made like this or Christmas wreaths. (Sorry to mention the 'C' word.)
I love the soft colours of these pom-poms at Susie Watson. A bit special. Wouldn't they look good round a plain linen cushion?

So a rainy day meant it was a bit quiet in Handmade Happiness yesterday. My daughter says I must use these quiet moments to email my customers with regular newsletters updating them on new things in the shop. Personally I'd like nothing better than to compose a regular newsletter but I'm not sure that people would want to receive it. No point making that effort if it goes straight to 'junk'. I told her that is what the blog is for but she thinks customers like the personal contact of receiving an email. What do you think?

Today I must decide whether to renew the shop's broadband contract. I can get by without it and save money or if I produce newsletters and do that other thing I haven't yet got round to - having things made by me on etsy it would be worth continuing to pay out.

Hi Alison,
I wouldn't stop writing the blog. I'd do the newsletter in addition to the blog.x
