My boyfriend of almost 7 years is now very sadly my ex-boyfriend, and I'm in the process of dealing with the heartbreak and the logistics of moving out of our shared flat and into my parents spare room.
I'm setting up a temporary new workspace in my parents study (all my supplies and stock are in a mountain of boxes at the moment waiting to be unpacked over the weekend) and will be focusing my energies over the next few weeks and months on keeping my shops running, on getting emails replied to and parcels packed and posted.
Hopefully I will get back to crafting and my normal blogging schedule sometime soon but in the meantime posts from me may be a little sporadic. Instead, I'll be hosting a series of guest posts from other bloggers, makers and other crafty types.
If you've got a tutorial, a fun crafty project, a craft-related story, any Etsy/Folksy business tips, a craft book review, or anything else you'd like to share which you think my readers would be interested in, I'd love to hear from you. If you'd like to write something specially that would be fab, but I'd also be happy to republish a favourite post from your blog.
If you would like to contribute a guest post, please get in touch! You can email me at: mail [at] lupinhandmade [dot] com or leave a comment on this post with your email address and I will get back to you as soon as I can with more information (please note that comments will be published unless you request otherwise). I will basically need either text + blog friendly small images OR a link to a post on your blog I can get text etc from... PLUS a short bio/introduction for you and any links you want me to use, e.g. to your blog or website.
