Happy birthday RubyRaeLove...1 today!

Happy 1st birthday to RubyRaeLove, its been such a wonderful year. Lots of ups and a few downs but the business has gone from strength to strength. when I dreamt up rubyraelove i was on my way back from a little trip to hastings with my ex boyfriend. I never thought i would be sitting here a year later with over 15,000 orders under my belt, saying happy birthday RubyRaeLove! I still consider RRL an indie business with big plans for the future. Just recently i was contacted with some really wonderful news on expanding RubyRaeLove with some really big companies so watch this space. For a few months rubyraelove has sat quietly whilst i get on with my full-time job of being a teaching assistant and yes sometimes it can be hard to juggle everything i do, but it really makes it all worthwhile when i think about what i make and how much my customers like what they buy. I recently had a shoot in Crack Magazine with some old season pieces but i hope to see my creations gracing pages of glossy magazines...to ambitious? the world is my oyster....
I want to share with you my future hopes for RRL
  • Over the summer i have so plans to expand the business with collaborations with a few big companies (that i am not allowed to tell you about)
  • expand into a mobile workshop/business touring and sharing my pieces
  • I hope to introduce my own hand-made silver pieces (i am teaching myself silversmithing) 
  • and just have great fun with the pieces
I wanted to say a massive thank you for your on going support and love it really means alot so to say a massive thank you tomorrow i will be launching the  RubyRaeLove Birthday Give away i hope you can join me....
