By 2011 however I'd started to dream of how I could make the blog bigger and better. I wanted a better way to help unite gift seekers with the best cards and gifts the industry had to offer. Lots of thinking, doodling and many discussions with friends and family followed over many, many weeks, and slowly the idea for Piccadilly Lane took shape. Before long I had a shiny website ready to be filled with shops, studios and gifts.
