It barely even crossed my mind until thinking about newsletter #12, that it’s been a whole year since I started Jwrnal. A year of meeting so many amazing people, learning about traditional crafts and processes, discovering things and parts of Wales I didn’t know existed and getting to know the vibrant creative community that is so alive in Wales today. I’m so glad you’re reading this newsletter. I hope that it is as fun for you to read as it is for me to create.
In this month’s newsletter, you’ll meet Heather - who has been with me since near-enough day 1 capturing the fantastic maker’s we have featured with her brilliant photography, also you’ll meet Anna - who has become a regular contributor to these newsletters. There’s so many more I could thank, but I’d be here forever. It really is a team effort.
To celebrate, by pure coincidence, I’m off to Ynys Enlli, one of my favourite places I have discovered over the last year. I’ll be seeing in the weekend and the end of Summer sunsets with friends and a glass or two to celebrate. Here’s to the next 12 months- cheers!
