Some of you have already heard the exciting news – I recently sold my sideline business, You Biscuit! to a wonderful husband and wife team (Jenna & Peter Barlow) from Stellenbosch, who I KNOW will new breath life into it and build the brand and product offering across SA!
My freelance design work has really taken off this year and I have been struggling lately to give YB! the focus it deserves – instead of allowing it to fizzle out as I’ve done with businesses in the past, I threw the idea of selling the business out onto Facebook, and the Universe did her thang!
It all happened quite quickly and I was able to sign over in person last weekend while I was visiting my sister in the Cape!
I know Peter and Jenna from University days and am thrilled and proud to hand YB! over to them – with their expert writing and design skills, they are more than capable of continuing what I have started – can’t wait to see what they get up to and to cheer them on from the sidelines and to potentially help on a creative level in the future.
It’s been such an awesome journey and I thank EVERYONE for their support (please continue to show You Biscuit! the love, even in my absence!)
I feel like a mama bird whose fledgling has flown the nest – but don’t worry, am already sitting on a few new eggs 😉 and hoping to also spend some time focusing on my design work processes and on myself, my family and my house in the new year.
Bring on the festive season and two weeks “leave” (LOL – whatever!) in January!
