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!).

Apologies for not blogging for so long, but I have been so busy with sales and John Lewis orders that I cannot believe its almost the end of April! Hopefully I am back on track now and can keep you posted on recent news and what's happening with me and Illustrate My Name behind the scenes.

Not only is the chosen artwork range available online at John Lewis Direct; but within the coming weeks, six of John Lewis flagship stores will feature the artwork within their nursery room sets. These chosen stores will include: Oxford Street, Kingston, Peter Jones, Trafford, Blue Water, and Edinburgh.
John Lewis have also selected my personalised artwork range to feature within their forthcoming nursery catalogue, which is due out shortly, and once again this will be a very prestigious moment for me. Having had the artwork range photographed for this, and also samples have been used for various press and media promotion, both myself and the John Lewis team are excited about this launch.
The full range of artwork designs are available from our online store, Illustrate My Name; which continues to grow and provide customers with a one stop shop for adorable personalised children's and baby gifts.
