McCarthy Designs & Occasions

It's official,

I am now self employed.

It is all a little scary,

I guess the unknown always is.

I will be launching my online store on the 2nd April.

There is still so much to do

but it is all very exciting.

I have been busy finding suppliers and ordering in stock.

My new office is a little cramped

but I do have lots natural light and a window that opens.

Fortunately I am very flexible and I can easily relocate my workstation to sit out in the sunshine.

What bliss!

Apart from selling pretty things I am also available to help out with interior and event styling

Thanks to some wonderful friends I am already busy helping with the decor and styling of their houses, some parties and a wedding.

It is all so much fun and I love to help ease the stress that comes when you are organising a big event, renovating or moving house.

Thank you for joining me on my journey and for all of the support and feed back that you have all given me over the last few years.

The encouragement and friendship that I have received from my blog, and the inspiration that I get from reading about your journeys and lives has played a huge part in me being able to go out on my own and do something that I love.
