... see you on Channel 4 I suppose....
Sunday, 26 October 2008
I think the same should be applied to Christmas advertising/display/etc. I almost threw up a few days ago when I heard the DFS (sofa company) ad playing Christmas music. I mean, It's not even November yet.
So this is three weeks away what I am selling at, so it seems the right time to advertise it. I am so excited but still have so much to do! I have booked the week leading up to it off work to get prepared!
It's always a really good do and the folks who oragnise it are gems. Get yerself down if you can make it!

Too effing right. Too too busy. My 9-5 is stretching me to capacity and sooner or later my hair is going to start falling out. If my eyelashes fall out, enough's enough. That REALLY freaks me out.
I have had a social event pretty much every evening as far back as I remember (I recommend you listen to the Courteeners , The Mystery Jets, and the Golden Silvers, seen those over the weekend).
So just as I am contemplating jumping into oncoming traffic of a dual carriageway - I notice my feedback has arrived for the first ring I sold on Etsy... whoopie!

I have done a fair bit over the last few days.
I have joined Twitter and Flickr and haven't quite got my head around them yet but quite like them. Better than myspace anyway. I used to like myspace alot, but not so much these days.
I have joined the Craft in Colour Etsy Team, which is run by Tizzalicious, which I am really excited about... following from this, I was featured in a Treasury. Yay! Here's my fame, and I have so many more hits from this so many thanks and I'll have a go at creating one soon:
The above features :
Mermaid Bracelet by Pulp Sushi
Sweet and Sassy Hair Flower by Always Amy
Large Felt Handbag by Lusitania
Pool Party Office Set by Start To Finish
Bright Blue Button Bracelet by Kitschtique
Sweet Coral Red Rose Earrings by Baby Loves Pink
Block Party Lego Cube Ring by Kitschen Sink
Any Way You'd Like To Travel - Tractor Print by Goodbloom
Tripple - Sweet UFO - Sprinkles Bracelet by Stoopid Gerl
Fleece Dog Ball by Bentleys Bones
Kitty Cat Double Cards by Chez Larsson
Recycled Shirt Tunic Dress by CourtneyCourtney
Thanks again to Tizzalicious for featuring us, head over to her shop there's some really cute stuff, it's a shame she couldn't put something of her own in but apparently that's not good etsy-quette.
Well you may think that doesn't sound alot but I do work full time and have family and friends to see too... and this online marketing whatnot takes alot of time up!
I'm off to go make some stuff with my new supplies!

Wednesday, 8 October 2008
Today was a great day because....
a) I went to the post depot today to collect a package and it was some supplies that had to be signed-for, and they are great... will be able to make some cute stuff...
b) I held a stall at Bradford College Freshers' Fair, it wasn't really a selling event so I didn't sell much, but, I did generate alot of interest and gave out business cards and have kinda been invited back for a proper craft fair-cum- jewellery sale.
c) I picked up my postcards from the printers - a fab job by KallKwik
d) I got home and more supplies had arrived... yay!
e - and completely craft unrelated) I scored a flirting hat-trick with a wink, wolf-whistle and car beep. I must wear skirts more often (and it wasn't even short).
It was also a great day because I saw alot of the students I used to hang out with, and they remembered me!
Hopefully my next post will have some photos of the stuff I make with my new supplies :o)

I made that because I never had name necklaces when I was younger, having such a silly name and all. Well no not really, I'd rather be called Rowan than something common. Although I never got away with not doing my homework. Ginger and a funny name. I couldn't be a wall flower if I wanted to.
I get asked alot how much to make one... it took ages, I'd have to charge at least £30 to make it worth my while.... and then people aren't so keen!!

So... Past: In terms of crafting, I have been sourcing new supplies (it takes longer than you think), drawing and designing a business card. I have also ordered some post cards... yipee. Also money got stolen from my bank, which is wack, cos I can;t use ebay til it's sorted.
Present: I am having a stall on Wednesday.. I'll say where after in case my stalker is reading (it's not a public one I can publicise anyway). I am quickly putting together my inventor and sorting out packaging etc.
Future: I am so excited about my new supplies and you should be too... resin is making a come back, starting with some simple designs, there is also going to be a winter theme ready for Christmas and whatever else holidays folks are celebrating. I was asked lasked year to make some Christmas/wintery themed stuff and I'm excited about this... there'll also be hearts and some other bits and pieces....
Another future aim is to get some better structure to my blog, I'll have specific days of the month where I'll blog about targets I set for myself, etc etc.
Anyways I'm off... glue must have dried by now.
Wish me luck for Wednesday
