Blimey what a year, and what an amazing last couple of months!!! I have loved every minute of it, the expanding of the business has meant some growing pains, and some steep learning curves, I don't get everything right but I try very hard to, and its meant some serious learning, even in the last 3 weeks, we have had a very steep learning curve. And the one thing I love is to keep learning and make changes and adapt to make things better, that for me this is exciting, and I love it that my customers seem to come on my journey with me, so thanks to all my customers this year, and all of my wholesale customers, its been a cracking year!

Next year, also sees a number of changes to Fyberspates in the way it operates and to manage the growth successfully, it will mean being a little less flexible about somethings, but that's the balance you have to strike and I am looking forward to that. Early Jan sees a whole restructuring of the unit ready for the change in wholesale =  no more commission dyeing for wholesale, simply a huge range of off the shelf (still one off's, unique), but its got to become more manageable for us, this will be launched in late January.

I am also hoping to do TNNA in the summer in the USA, and also might be going to meet a US distributor to organise that in late jan, fingers crossed :)

So, I its my last day today in the unit, and at work, I am having a proper length of time off for the first time in a few years. I am very very excited, I have a feeling I will sleep most of it. I will be back on the 4th of Jan refreshed and ready to go and tell you about all my plans.

Thanks loads everyone for your adorable support and fabulous smiles,

Happy Holidays and Happy new year.
