Last month I entered my business, Outsource Marketing, under the “Best Home Based Business” category in the Subiz Awards (Subiaco Business Awards).

The awards recognize flourishing business in the Subiaco area.

The category I have entered is sponsored by the government’s Small Business Development Corporation.

I find out later this month if I have won- so everyone please keep your fingers and toes crossed!!

What & Where
Zilpah tart handbags and accessories (Hairpins & Brooches) are 100% handcut and handmade with love in Yumi's Canberra studio.
