Happy New Year and Welcome to 2012

Happy New Year everyone!

Its been a while since I made my last posting. I have been very busy both at work and with my charity work Dress A Girl Australia. I know this is not a good excuse. I did a Christmas charity drive for Dress A Girl Australia for 500 dresses by Christmas and this took most of my spare time away from Soft Treasures especially on the last 3 months of 2011. Most of the handmade projects I started for Soft Treasures were left unfinished. Even my garden 'Idriess Place' has been forgotten.

But the good news is that I was surprisingly very successful in the Christmas Drive. As of Dec 25, 2011, I had on hand 337 dresses and am still receiving dresses and these were for parcels posted before Dec 25. The other good news is that am back to take care of Soft Treasures’ handmade needs. Although my customer service was still par excellence during the time that I was kept busy with Dress A Girl Australia, I wasn’t able to come up with new products. None of the items I had on my list were released for sale but they will be in 2012.

I have lots of good things in store for 2012 for Soft Treasures so come back often so you wont miss a thing. New products, new charity drives, new website (the current one I have is kind of rubbish when it comes to checkout) and a new group in Facebook called ‘Lets Do Craft’ for a new project I am intending to do which will last throughout the year and everyone is invited to join in. I will be talking about this new project of mine in my next blog so watch out for it.
