Pat on the Back from The Mumpreneur Awards 2010

I am delighted to have reached the semi-final stage of The Mumpreneur Awards 2010; and would like to take this opportunity to wish all the finalists the best of luck at the forthcoming prestigious awards ceremony in September. These awards recognise the great achievements of the UK's mumpreneurs, and inspire more women into business.

The first round of judging saw 302 entries whittled down to just 8-11 entries per category, before the second round of judging took place. Only the best of the bunch were then put forward to the second round, and these were people the judging panel believed would be suitable candidates for the finals. Being chosen as one of these suitable candidates meant we performed outstanding enough to have made it through to the "semi-finals" stage.

This recognition is proof of the continuous hard work and dedication undertaken... in the words of the judging panel 'We really feel this is an achievement to be proud of.....thank you again for taking the time to enter the Mumpreneur Awards with such a fantastic entry!'

The Mumpreneur Conference 2010 is taking place on September 18th 2010 at The Heart of England Conference Centre.

Illustrate My Name continue to drive increased awareness online to the beautiful range of gifts available within our online store, everything from Personalised Christening Keepsakes, to various Children's Personalised Gifts, and soon the Christmas Personalised Gift campaign will begin (can you believe!).

Turning 30.......Pirate and Princess Style!

Anyone for Pirate Punch or Princess Pimms?

The family all dressed up!

Yummy pirate and princess cupcakes!

Theo in action as Jack Sparrow!

My cute little Max!

Girls turning 30 in style.....from Cinderella to Princess Leah!

I was dreading the big three zero! So decided I would throw myself a little party with a fun theme of Pirates and Princesses, time for the adults (and the children) to take on this popular party theme!

It was a great evening, lots of fun seeing everyone dressed up, from men coming as princesses to women as pirates, an absolute treat to have all my close family and friends around me to celebrate my 30th birthday party in style!
