Hello world! – Yes, I greet you all

Hi, my name is “Wemel” – or that’s what I’m calling myself on this blog. It is october 2010 and I’m going, together with a partner, to open a little shop here in france somewhere next week. We are going to sell craft supplies, but we also want to offer workshops, offer other people the possibilities to offer workshops and create a place, where everybody can actually “try” the things (all based on the fact, that, everybody can buy in the internet, but with us you can try first, you can get quality advice and help if needed).

I don’t know when exactly we are going to open, but I guess somewhen next week, this all came pretty quick and we are just pushed into this adventure, I love that feeling.

It’s been a long time I wanted to make a blog about my crafts, and I never did. I guess with the opening of the shop, this might change, I think this is the perfect moment to start blogging about a passion, that makes me smile everyday again. I feel that there is so much that can be done, so much I didn’t even try yet, and I hope the shop and the workshops will bring me closer to all the things and motivate me to try the things I always wanted to create.

I’m german, my shop is based in france. And I somehow settled on writing in english. My english is way not perfect, but I’ ll try anyway 😉
