Glassware made from recycled bottles

One of the most valuable aspects of starting our recycled bottle crafting business is what I’ve learned about our family. We are small and we can struggle, but when it counts, our family works and stands together.

Whimsical, Vibrant, Unique, Memorable

Handmade items always seem to have a story behind them. It makes the connection to them more meaningful from the get-go. Each item is going to be unique and one-of-a-kind.

Being self-employed and running your own business (as well as being a full time mum) is hard work and long hours, lots of highs and lows, but I wouldn’t change it. I am lucky enough to work from home, with my own studio in the garden and can come and go as I please. It gives me the flexibility of looking after my four year old.

I also live in a rural location, so can work all week without seeing anyone, so it is also important to network/meet with like-minded folk, just to have some adult conversation and share experiences. I belong to a business womens club and networking group and it does help.

I hope you enjoyed reading all about Lazy Daisy Glass and hope you can take some of this information and adopt in to your own business. Thank you for reading!

Giving new life to seaglass

Giving new life to seaglass

I think that finding a business, as i have, and developing it organically is far more rewarding and enjoyable than working for anyone else, or even just running a business with small margins, heavy bills etc. To have an online store that you pay for as you use, and even then only a small amount, is far preferable. There are no massive bills waiting to scare me to death, and the payments are instant and secure, so no manual invoicing, chasing for money or any of the other time consuming aspects of a business.

I love it.

I love nature and especially sea life. I study pictures and watch lots of nature shows and visit the Zoo and Aquarium to get ideas. Some time ideas seam to just come out of the blue. One idea always leads to others. I love it!

Beautifully Unique Hand-Painted Glassware

All my tumbler sets match and have the same patterns, but each glass in the set is unique. Hand-painted glassware lets you feel the texture and the work that was done to create it.
