Another Week!


Well, another week has flown by and we are nearly at the end of September...already!! I really have to concentrate on my Christmas items ready for the craft fairs!!

My latest creation is this dainty bracelet, I bought the rose charms ages ago and have not known what to do with them, so have finally come up with this bracelet. I love it! I hope you do too!

It is for sale in my new shop on Coriandr, you can access it from the link on the right. I have only listed a few things on there so far but hopefully I will add to it gradually!

I am very much looking forward to my week off of work in two weeks time! I will be spending all of my time concentrating on my craft shops and creating new exciting items!

Today was the day for the best car boot sale near where we live, I love going there finding things that other people would find useless but I could think of loads of things to do with them! But unfortunately I woke up to find a massive downpour of rain. Walking through puddles and mud following me around did not sound like much fun for my fiance so instead he took me to Hobbycraft! As we were driving there I was thinking about all the things that I wanted to buy, it was looking to be an expensive trip! But miraculously I managed to spend under £10 and still get everything I need! Yes, from Hobbycraft! I have never left that shop without spending £30-£40 before! So it is a proud day for me!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!

It's Friday!

It's Friday! And I am coming to the end of my first week in my new life as an Etsy shop owner! What an exciting week! I have been very busy creating a twitter account, facebook page, this blog and of course my Etsy shop!

*********************************************************************************

Here are my statistics so far!!
Facebook: 12 fans!
Twitter: 1 follower!
Etsy: In 8 circles   /   0 sales :( !!!

*********************************************************************************

Of course I have not just ditched my job and decided I am going to make millions from selling earrings and pieces of fimo....as that would be silly!! So my normal everyday 9-5 job must continue!
...Don't get me wrong, I love my work and the people I work with but I want to be working for myself! Doing something that inspires and motivates me!

*********************************************************************************

I am one of those people that cannot sit still and cannot concentrate on one thing at a time, I am always trying new things! So this blog will be full of new things that I am giving a go. The good and the bad! The successes and the failures!
