The birth of Alwaysspecial

by on May.27, 2009, under Always Special

We played with the idea of having a website in the early part of 2008, my husband Andy was eager (this would be a first for him, a pleasant change to networking etc) and so with the idea firmly planted, our website was conceived in September 2008, it was nurtured, tweaked and finally entered the web-world in the early weeks of 2009….that’s when the real work started!!!

We needed a name for our website……I wanted to create unique, special gifts and wanted the web-site’s name to convey this….we played with several names…but both Andy and I kept coming back to “Always Special” so we registered her name…she was official….so to speak!!

We spent our days juggling family, work & life and then every evening we would set up the camera and painfully (I am married to a perfectionist, a piece of ribbon out of place and we would have to take the entire shoot again!!!!) create the photos for the site…..every hour of every day was taken up, we were so busy we realised that the month of January had passed without us even noticing!!!!!

Both Andy and I had started on a huge learning curve…..that involved lots of tears and laughter….and sometimes both!!!!

While the website was being created, my Towel cakes were being sold in a village shop….I made over 70 in a six week period….I started to panic….could I cope with website orders as well????
