Workshops currently available in jewellery, coasters and suncatchers.

Woman Of The Year Awards 2014

I was thrilled to have been shortlisted for a Business Award in The News Woman of The Year 2014 Awards. These were sponsored by Rachel Lowe of She Who Dares. Clint and I put our glad rags on and attended the awards at The Marriot Hotel in Portsmouth.
It was a fantastic experience, extremely inspirational and humbling. I did not win my category but the woman who did had made remarkable achievements and was only 23! I am just at the beginning of my journey and am pleased that I am on the right road. It left me buzzing with a new zest for moving forward and keeping up my determination even when faced with set backs. 

Christina Corp pictured with Rachel Lowe below was the overall winner. What a story! This lady was told she would never walk or speak again yet she is and volunteers helping others with brain injuries. Amazing! 

 All I can say is go with it, hard work and sleepless nights do pay off. If you have family and friends that support you like me then it makes it all that bit easier. Have a great week, Elisa x
