Website re-jig

Hello everyone,

Before I start, I just realised that it's only 5 in the afternoon and it's DARK! And raining!

I don't actually mind winter, in fact I quite like the whole staying in where it's cosy thing, but I think it's always a slight shock to the system when the clocks go back.

I've been fiddling about with my website this afternoon and have managed to put my lovely Christmas decorations in pride of place on the front page!

Thank you to Sarah at Blooming Felt for giving them a lovely mention in her blog, too! :)

Back to work tomorrow, but I need to do lots of crafting in the evenings, to prepare for the two craft fairs I have coming up in November.

Happy Sunday everyone xx

Etsy Treasury

I made an Etsy Treasury today!

Have a look here...

It was so much fun! I had to look through lots of different craft items on etsy and choose some to go into my treasury - I chose the theme of Rudolph & Santa as I came across so many cute reindeer things and Christmas seemed a bit too vague.

You have to wait for the number of treasuries to drop below 333 before you can make one, so I was watching the screen for ages! Now I know how to make them, I'm going to make more!!

Halloween sale!

I forgot to mention earlier, that I've reduced the prices of my Halloween Trick or Treat Bags to £1.50 - I would like to send them all off to happy trick or treaters before the day itself! I have three left, so if anyone has three kiddiwinks who plan to go trick or treating, just pay for two through my website and I will throw the 3rd one in for free!


I've realised that I've not posted for over a week now - eek!! I've been so busy, I just don't know where the time's gone. It's a hectic time of year at work, and I'm also teaching a few evening classes too. And, most excitingly, I've finished my very first wholesale bulk order!


I have packaged everything up (very carefully, I didn't want any of them getting travelsick) and sent them all off today, so a supersized load of my Christmas decorations are winging their way to Blooming Felt ready to appear at some craft fairs in the South. :)

I'm going to have a relaxing evening tonight, and then get going on creating some more felty goodness tomorrow. I've got another craft evening in 3 weeks, so I need to get ready for that - and have you noticed how Christmassy it's getting in town? With any luck, there'll be lots of keen shoppers at the next two craft fairs!

Hope everyone is well :)

Christmas Decorations

Evening all,

Just stopping by to post a picture of my new Christmas decorations..

These packs of five little Christmas tree buddies are available on my website and etsy shops now and cost just £6 for a pack of five!

I was a little surprised, and extremely happy, to sell out of these yesterday at the Ordsall Hall craft fair - yippee!

One down, two to go

I had the first of 3 craft fairs today at Ordsall Hall in Manchester and it went surprisingly well!! I'm very pleased to say! I made a nice profit (not going to put me in a new tax bracket, but it may cover a few small purchases in hobbycraft) which I was really pleased about, and received many nice compliments about my things. :) Hooray. My mum came along too which was great - thanks mum! :)

I also got to meet two lovely people from - Ruth from Tip Top Toppers and Susie from SusieQ cards - was great meeting u both :)

I've got a stack of crafting and other jobs to do this week but I think I'll make a start on that in the morning!

Craft Fairs Galore

I've got three craft fairs coming up in the next two months. The first is this Sunday at Ordsall Hall in Salford, near Manchester. I've been umming and ahhing about whether it's too early to have Christmas stock at this one - so I have decided to just take a bit of Christmas stuff with me and see what happens.

Then there's one on 12th november at Cloverlea school in Altrincham, and finally one on 30 November at Port Sunlight on the Wirral. Phew! I certainly won't be getting bored!

One of the things I'm hoping will attract some interest is my Halloween Card Toppers.

In other news, I'm very excited to have had my very first wholesale order!! Woohoo! Lovely Sarah from Blooming Felt has asked for a job lot of some products and I'm well on the way with getting them all finished!
