My 5 mins of fame

Yes i am in the media again this time in one of my favorite magazines Al Mar’a which is a monthly magazine that comes out in both english and arabic whic targets the modern women of today.

One afternoon i got a call from my crafty friend Isra from Sew 2 b happy. Wonder if i was be interested in being featured in Al Mara, as the topic was about online businesses in Oman. I was then contacted by Rana Al Alawaneh and they came over and i owd them where th magic happenes LOL and now Ta Da i am featured in Al Mara YAY!

I am in their February issue – Arabic version

Here i am

The article talks  about my passion and how i wanted to turn it into an online business selling my handmade items but was faced with problems.

However the good news is that because of this article i am in touch with people who might be able to help so i am in now in the process of getting it all sorted out so in sha Allah (god willing) there will be light at the end of the tunnel :) I will reveal everything in due time 😉

Thank you Al Mara Magazine it was lovely meeting Rana and their photographer who i must admit took great pictures, i rarely like pictures of myself but i am loving this one of me, so he must be VERY GOOD LOL

Did you check out the pillow i made for Sew it?

You still have a couple of days left and belive me its a fast project with great results so join in the fun the deadline is on Tuesday so get stitching..

Happy sewing

    Oh I am so happy to hear that it might get a solution to your problem that was exactly the reason I felt you should be featured as what is the point in encouraging people to open online businesses in Oman if then they are faced with payment problems etc so I am THRILLED for you.
