New Venture, start the Adventure - Randomling

Seems that everything is changing this year. Not sure if it's for the better or worse in some cases but at least some good has come out of the last few months. 

Redundancy still hasn't been announced, but it lurks around the corner like a child's depiction of the bogey man. So as you can imagine every last penny goes to paying the bills and keeping things up to date, just in case. However it would seem there are others out there that have had enough of the Man and the way he just seems to pee from a great height on those that work hard. Either that or city pigeons really don't like me ;)

However after very long conversations that included plenty of Coke (bottled kind), coffee, a fry up, some pretty lame sandwiches and a dog vomiting on the floor, it seems I am about to go into business. Now, having done the self employment before it's not that daunting. However keeping my full time job for now is going to put the pressure on. With a close friend of mine looking for a way to leave the 9 to 5 and having bundles of talent in the flora area, as well as skills in up-cycling old furniture we have decided to do business together. Which also means I have to get my finger out and start keeping this little baby up to date and fully functional. Naughty naughty me! (Anyone mind if I blame my cats?)

And of course, this little blog of mine will be the starting point (well that and a web page that's under-development). So with a pre-warning to my dear readers, I will soon be featuring the creative talents of my partner in crime Helen Campbell, and my sometime associate and Mother, Jean Hudson. Which at least means I can show off the talents of someone who can knit ;)

Whilst I often take on projects for others I rarely write about them for fear they won't appreciate my inane humour. However with a plan in mind, no stone can be left unturned... so I apologise to the woodlouse whose home I may disturb in doing so.

So wish us luck... I think this is going to be a bumpy ride, if not a fun and crafty one. 

With U in Mind is about to go global... soonish (is so colon, capital D).


  1. How exciting Kat! I left my full time (well paid) job almost 4 years ago to start my craft business - even though my crafting supplies had not seen the light of day for over 10 years at the time - and despite it being a very scary ride financially it was the best thing I ever did!

    I wish you all the luck in the world - make sure you keep on top of all your paperwork and use places like the craft forum to get help from others who have already been there.

    I know you will make a really successful business out of your plans and can't wait to read all about how it is going.

    Good luck xx
