Welcome to First Impressions! Creating window displays, wedding decorations and unique ‘found’ jewellery!
Hello, I’m Sue Lockwood. When I launched my small business in 2012, my aim was simply to provide original window displays for shops and businesses within the Dunblane area. However, things have grown since then! My window display service has proved so successful that some of my prize-winning window displays have been in locations right across Central Scotland.
Following requests, I now create and provide a wide variety of wedding display options. I have also recently added a new line to the First Impressions portfolio, based on my longstanding love of seaglass and it gives me huge pleasure to create distinctive pieces of ‘found’ jewellery for others to enjoy. So, not a day goes by when I am not involved in my job one way or another however nothing stays the same for ever and so it is with First Impressions that there are changes ahead.
We have made the difficult decision that from now on my workload will be decreasing. I’m not stopping altogether and my wedding work will continue, but I’m reducing the number of business clients to whom I work which is on the one hand, heartbreaking, and on the other hand, necessary. It’s all about work/life balance so there will be a lot less of my work in shop window displays and a lot more time at home because family comes first.
Thank you for your understanding.
