Finally, I have managed to photograph and list some of the collars I’ve been making recently. They are in a range of colours, designs and yarns so hopefully there is something to suit everyone (who wants a crochet collar). I am more than happy to make custom orders so if you have a style, colour, yarn not listed just get in touch and I will see what I can do.
Don’t forget that until the end of January all items in my etsy shop are 20% off with the discount code JAN2013.
Here’s a sneak preview but visit the shop for the full range.
How has everyone’s 2013 been so far? I’ve been getting back into the swing of going to bed and getting up at a reasonable hour and getting out of the habit of assuming cheese and pate are a suitable replacement for dinner- you’ve got to love the holidays.
Anyway, there are a couple of things I’m pleased to do this week to kick off 2013 in creative style.
1: There is a 20% off sale on all of my shop just use code JAN2013 if you are ordering anything. Don’t forget that I offer free UK & Ireland postage! click here to visit
2: I’m taking part in 2013 Creative Pay it Forward. The first five people to like my facebook page and comment on my status will receive something handmade from me this year. It could be anything, at any time- how exciting!
I’m looking forward to being more creative this year, taking on more projects and hopefully building up my shop. What are you looking forward to this year?
After a very sad family time I was perked up by making my first Etsy sale! I didn’t expect this moment to be quite as exciting as it was but I was over the moon to think that somebody would pay money for something I made! I was beginning to get a bit downheartened that nothing was selling but this has re-energised me and I can’t wait for the next sale. I have a feeling this crafting thing is addictive! It should come with a warning!
I’ve finally gotten around to updating my shop and have just uploaded some sweet button jewellery. Don’t forget that until Tuesday you can get 15% off EVERYTHING with the code TALKT15. I’ve still to upload the cushions and some more collars from my stall but please keep your eyes peeled and I’ll update you when everything is on there. Apologies for everything coming in drips and drabs, I’m much better at making things than I am at photographing and listing them!
So, for Take a Look Tuesday this week I decided to have a wee pre Christmas sale and for one week only, everything in my shop on Etsy will have 15% discount with code TALKT15. Don’t forget that as all of my items have free UK & Ireland postage this means there are some real bargains to be had!
I’ve also got some lovely items left over from the market at the weekend to add tonight.
Here’s a quick sneak peek at some of the things I’ve been making for my first stall at a craft fair. I’ve made lots of collars but I thought that I should also make some lower priced items to add variation and choice for buyers so I decided to make some jewellery.
First up, sticking with the crochet I made some crochet rose rings and brooches.
I also have a hefty supply of fabric and some of it has been sitting in my stash for ages, too big to throw away and too small to really make anything with. However, they are ideal for these button ear rings and rings.
After the market I will list anything that hasn’t sold onto my Etsy Shop.
I’ve loved making crochet collars recently and I’m proud to have them onsale in my Etsy shop. However, I have been feeling the need to change up the design a wee bit. Last night I spent a bit of time playing about with some wool and my hook and this is what I came up with. What do you think?
I don’t know what it is about toadstools but I just love them. Maybe it’s the vibrant colours or maybe it’s the slightly magical, fairytale connotations. I’ve always had a bit of a love affair with them anyway.
Last year I made a toadstool brooch for myself and I have had so many lovely comments from people about it. I decided to make a few more, and have put them onto my Etsy site. Let me know what you think. Xx
It seems a lot of people I know have been moving house recently so I’ve been busying away making housewarming gifts. The latest are cushion covers. Here’s the latest.
I hope she likes it. I like the simple clean design so fingers crossed.
Once I get all the presents done I’ll list some on my etsy shop
I’ve finally done it. I’ve actually added some products to my shops on etsy and folksy. The stocks are modest just now but keep checking back as I have lots of items ready to be listed.
