Today marks three years since we launched JillyJilly! I can't believe it, where has the time gone?? We're celebrating with the launch of some gorgeous new goodies in the form of four bright watercolour collections - Life is Sweet, Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti, Live a Colourful Life and Be-Leaf in Yourself. Take a look here and if you feel like treating yourself be sure to use the code YAYNEW at checkout for free UK shipping until Sunday.
It seems like a good time to pause and reflect on how far we've come. Some of you will remember the Bottled Treasures days which seems so long ago but is where it all began, I was still a student back then and wasn't totally sure what I wanted from my business. Once I'd decided, with the help of David, we launched JillyJilly together on 24th May 2014 - just a few months after I left my final year of art school to follow my dreams!
Since then we've had our ups and downs, the main downs being the ever changing social media challenges we face each day, but plenty of highs to make up for the long hours and unpredictable nature of being self employed. We've attended markets and trade shows, have our products stocked in over 30 of the most amazing shops, created a dream workspace, had a successfully funded Kickstarter Project (thanks again!), had products featured in the press (thank you to all the sewing magazines!), reached a milestone of 1000 Etsy sales... was chosen to mentor new Etsy shops for Etsy Resolution 2017, launched this new website, rebranded, created my dream packaging and worked with the most wonderful bloggers, business owners and friends.
We have a few more treats planned for the rest of the week including giveaways happening across our social media pages and our first Q&A video coming soon!
I'd like to just take a moment to say a huge thank you to all of you for your support over the last three years, we'd be nothing without our wonderful customers. Every single order, comment, like and share has helped us achieve our dreams and we appreciate that every day.
So, thank you!! Now where's the cake?!
