International Women's Day

What a fabulous day International Women's Day is. A whole day dedicated to incredible women the world over. If you want to find out a bit more, head over to Twitter and read all the great links and tweets under the hashtag #InternationalWomensDay. You can also find out events happening near you to celebrate this day on the International Women's Day website.

As part of this day I want to give a shout out to a number of amazing women who run their own businesses and who I admire greatly.

The mother and daughter team, Judith and Samantha, rescued Maidenhead's sewing centre that was due to close. They were super brave and created Sew Crafty, a gorgeous sewing shop and it's gone from strength to strength. Amazing.

Sammy (aka Samantha from Sew Crafty) and H from Live it. Love it. Make it. are two women I really admire. Their GORGEOUS creative blog is such an inspiration. It's fresh, creative and totally alive with wonderful content. They've been featured in top craft magazines, such as Mollie Makes, and they're just the loveliest ladies!

Claire from Claireabellemakes and Sophie from Onetenzeroseven are some of the most hard working, determined women I know. If you could only see how much they do behind the scenes to run their own business, I reckon you'd need to have a lie down. It's immense. They are also the most wonderfully, supportive, generous women. I honestly don't know what I'd do without them. 

Which women do you greatly admire?
