Hi, I am Allison Furlong
Unfortunately, I am no longer 21, and live in Liverpool, UK. I am a proud mum to Alfie (the kid), and Mabel (the dog).
I have my own Creative Business making dog accessories which I work on part time. I would be happy to work more hours but I have a medical condition known as M.E which makes it impossible. Working part time (and for myself) means I can still comfortably provide for my family, but also get the rest I need and rearrange my work if I’m having a flare-up. It also provides me with the luxury of choosing my hours, which means I don’t work when Alfie is off school. This is something I am very grateful for!
I haven’t always had my own business. My jobs have been varied to say the least! You can read about my colourful work history here..
Deciding to start my own creative business is the best decision I have ever made. I am not rich from it, but for me, it’s not about being rich. It’s about being able to have the freedom to choose my own hours, as well as the sense of calm I feel when creating something.
I have learnt so much over the past 8 years, partly because I love learning, but also because I had no choice. If I wanted to make my business work, I had to have the knowledge in place.
I have been able to share what I have learnt with friends and family who have wanted to get creative, which has now led to this blog!
