HarryCakes Creations

After what seems like a really long time, I have finally got my act together and set up a web page for my little home business. It really feels like I have started now and it has given me the push to get myself "out there" and start showing off my talents!

I have posted the link on Facebook and the 'likes' are coming in, so hopefully this is the start of something fun!

This is something that I have been pondering for a while and I've recently had a kick up the behind to get organised and I am really pleased with the results so far.  I could definitely do with some help on the photography side of things, but I'm sure it will all come together in the end. 

I also recieved my business cards the other day, and although they don't have the website on them, I won't have any trouble directing anyone there-even if it is just through the Facebook page.  I am even considering selling my wares at nearly-new sales, car boots, craft fairs etc but I think I will need to get making a few more before I can do that.

I find it amazing how comparitively easy it is to set up your own "business" now!  It is just a case of a few clicks on a dedicated site really and then you are off and away! 

It would be wonderful if it all took off and I was able to quit the day job because of it but I am not holding out much hope for that yet.  I do however find myself daydreaming about one day having my own shop where I can make my creations all day and chat to my customers about what event they are buying their gifts for.

Back in the normal world, I will just continue to look after my gorgeous boy and lovely hubby and keep working hard...that's what everyone else does-right?!

Post Comment Love


  1. Thank you so much for sharing your new venture on the PoCoLo link and wishing you the very best of luck with it all. I think your photos are great btw. Also, your link wasn't entered on the linky tools just on the comments box so I have linked it all up for you. Do you have a twitter handle? If so please would you tweet me @vicwelton and I'll publicise your post for you to get more #PoCoLo

  2. Nice looking 'cakes'! Have you tried looking through facebook to see other similar businesses, and getting together to promote them through each others' pages? I've got two friends who do similar things to you, and they get a lot of publicity this way....

    1. Thanks Nell-I have one or two people that I am talking to about this because my local beautician does it and it seems to work really well for her. Thank you for the advice-it is all very welcome, and thank you for checking out my site!!

  3. Thanks Tori!! I am very new to this as you can probably tell and I am still trying to work out how this all works!! I will tweet you as soon as Twitter lets me back in my account (won't at the mo)!!
    I must say, it has been lovely to see how friendly and helpful all the other mummy bloggers seem to be! :)

  4. All the best with your new venture - hope it goes well. #PoCoLo
