Its Alive !!!

Ok, so writing a blog is a bit weirder than I had thought it would be. I even spent a week practicing, writing what I thought would make a good blog and sending it to my friend to read. And now I have "stage fright" lol.

I guess I should start with who I am.

My name is Dannielle, and I am a craft addict. Ok, that sounds like I am in some sort of therapy group, and while I don't deny that I possibly should be, what with the amount of supplies I am currently surrounded by, I think I wanted to tell you a bit about who I am lol 

Take Two!!

I am the superbly brilliant, magnificently talented Dannielle, creator of gorgeousness at CottonBerry - Designs for Kids. Hmmm, possibly a tad overboard, but at least I'm honest hehe ;)

Seriously though, I am the person behind CottonBerry - Designs for Kids, though I think for my blog I will just refer to it as CottonBerry. 

I started CottonBerry officially 4 months ago, though I had been planning for it since the start of 2011. I researched the business side, I spoke to my accountant, I bored my husband and friends to death with business talk and all the ideas I wanted to see come to life (they are now experts in all things "doll" and "CottonBerry", much to their disgust lol)

My Berry Girl dolls are the current stars of my business, and I now have 3 collections, which I am so excited about. Perfecting my design, having something that was unique in an environment that is overwhelmed with doll makers, was all important to me. I hope to expand on my range in the future, but it will have to wait for a little while yet :)

I am so proud of what I have been able to accomplish in the months since I started. I have met some other wonderful ladies in facebook world, and am continuously inspired to present the very best of myself to my "likers". The future of CottonBerry is definitely bright!!
