Open for business & a celebratory giveaway (CLOSED)!



I feel like i've waited forever to be able to say this but finally... FINALLY... Haus of Glue is online!

What I thought would initially be a simple and straight forward process actually turned into a huge learning curve for me. Let me tell you, numbers are not my strong point! Luckily for me, I have an amazing business mentor and her 'thang' is figures! I touched on the fact that I applied through the government Start-Up Loan scheme and i'll do a proper blog post on this at some point. 

Getting all flossy with my new cards!


I feel like i'm starting to build the foundation of a business selling things I am absolutely passionate about and I have so many ideas for where I want to progress and take things. As they say, "from tiny acorns, mighty oaks grow". At least I think that's the saying...


Of course you all know I have a love for anything crafty but ever since I was little, stationary and gift wrapping was so enchanting to me. I would lust over a friend from schools pencil case and the pens she would bring back from her summer holiday in Hong Kong, curseing the rubbish selection in WHSmiths! Furry pencil cases were about as cool as it got! #90s haha.

In later years, i've become a bit of a wrapping magpie and I have to say, wrapping a present for someone is exciting as actually giving it to them.

This has naturally lead me to combine all these elements in Haus of Glue where people will able to buy a collection of little crafty bits and bobs. Crafty confectionary if you will.

You can visit Haus of Glue via the link on my side bar and also keep up to date on new products and promotions via Twitter and Facebook

Anyway, to celebrate I thought i'd offer my bloggy readers, a 10% discount which you can use on your first order by entering the code THEGLUEGUNGIRL at the checkout. This is valid until the 30th of April 2013.

Also i'm giving one of you the chance to win a super pretty Meri Meri bakery file! The only "rule" to enter is that you are a follower of my blog (you can follow me via google friend connect or BlogLovin' if you don't already do so) and this giveaway is open internationally. I'll pick a winner at random on the 25th of April and will announce it on my blog and via email so make sure you check to see if you've won!

If you have any feedback on the shop or if theres a product you would like to see stocked, do drop me a comment. I'll be attending the London Stationary Show next week which I am super excited about! 

And that's my big news apart from I also took a trip to Hobbycraft so new tutorials are coming up! I've finally worked out how to use my new camera too and if anyone is interested, I got the Nikon D5100 which I am totally in love with. 

Over and Out.
