Greetings from the mad-house! As any working Mum will tell you, LIFE IS CRAZY! Balance is elusive and an ever-changing beast of a thing to try and achieve.
It has been so busy here at Citizen HQ..... Citizen HQ comprises two older children (independent) and three smaller kiddies in various forms of week-about kind of care with former respective partners - yes we are a very blended family and it's a beautiful and crazy machine of a thing which brings it's own unique set of challenges, but ultimately it's a place and a beating heart we all belong too, but as any parent will tell you, it takes work and constant connection to achieve a semi-state of humming normality......... the laughter, achievements, tears, grazes, hurts, up and downs.
So amongst my passion for this awesome upcycled business my partner and I are busy navigating blended family life, the runnings, renovations of a home and a full-time job - life is good! We are here, we are doing it and it is rewarding.
Since it's inception a year ago Citizen Leather has grown from strength to strength, we are out there sharing our ethos and spreading the good upcycling word. So many markets, so many cool people that constantly inspire me. With big markets like Martinborough now done and dusted for the year, we are now starting down the barrel at the Women's Lifestyle Expo in Palmerston North http://www.expos.co.nz/. A large site at this event which brings the planning and construction work of display units, signage etc, as well as the production of gorgeous handcrafted Leather Bags made from our drool-worthy current selection of Leather Jackets.
Right now the website is bare, our local stockist is bare and my stock-shelves in my workshop are bare - this all makes for busy yet exciting times ahead......... so watch this space, and see the stock we have in production as it arrives and we'll let you know when our lovely Georgie Girl in Palmerston North https://www.facebook.com/georgiegirlongeorgestreet/?fref=ts is restocked also.
Thanks you so much for your continued support and sharing your passion with us, it is truly inspiring and so much appreciated.
Until next time CITIZEN'S, my fellow Mum's & Dads, Neighbours, Family & Friends. x
