Well, hi there everyone. I know that it's been a few days since my last post - but I've been in the big smoke visiting family and friends and touching base with the whirlwind that is life in Sydney. And, I've been hanging out here - with the one and only Amy Butler!
I was so excited when my friend Janine - who I worked with for many years at The Lifestyle Channel - called to say that Amy was heading to Sydney to give a talk on her life as a designer and a generally fabulous creative person. Of course, I had to go!
Organised by the great people at Living Creatively (an Australian website devoted to all things creative and crafty) - her talk went for about two hours and gave a wonderful insight into Amy's design process, the way that she runs her business and her life in general. I was heartened to hear that her business has been going for about 10 years and that its growth has been a very slow and steady evolution. So often we hear that peoples successes happen overnight - however, anyone involved in business knows that it takes a long time and much dedication before a business finds its wings.
It was lovely to be able to meet her after the talk - and she very graciously posed for this pic - which I thought you might like to see. Amy is soooo tall that even in my high heels I look like a 'shrimp' next to her! But what a lovely gal - and what a hunk her hubby is! Of course, I have to indulge and post a few of my fave Amy Butler pics from her site. Hope they give you a little inspiration too....
