Something New Coming Soon

I haven't been updating for a while now. I've been very busy the past few months as I, believe it or not, am starting a small business on the Internet, selling my very own handmade jewellery. Not contented with putting my pieces up for sale on a blog front, I did up a website from scratch. It was a real challenge indeed, from making the jewellery, learning about e-commerce, photographing the pieces, adding them in one by one, to studying small business laws and legislation in Australia. It may be small, but I'm more than determined to make it work.

And to make it "official", so to speak, I've actually registered the business name with Business Victoria of Consumer Affairs Victoria and will be applying for an ABN (Australian Business Number). If all goes well, and I pray hard that it does, I'll actually be *gulp* paying taxes too. Talk about a catch-22.

I'll be announcing the website very soon, so do stay tuned. And yeah, I reckon I can actually call myself a small business owner soon. Really excited about it!

Look forward to it. Alison's been complaining about a lack of jewellery from me as of late... ;)

I kinda picked this up from reading between the lines in one of your previous posts :) I just didn't know what business it was going to be, LOL.

Jewellery is good. Because not everybody is fortunate enough to buy whatever they like, or talented enough to make whatever they fancy :)

Please announce your new website soon, Tine, I can't wait! :)
