Lacking on this blog!!

I really do need to set a reminder to update this blog until I get into the swing of doing it automatically!!!

Lately I've been asked to make a variety of things for people, and when I can find the lead to my camera I can update you with the results!!  My favourite so fr has been a 25th wedding anniversary card for my friend's parents, where I used acetate as the card base!!!  I was nervous about using it, but it's actually a really easy medium to work with.  My next challenge I am setting myself is to make a gift bag out of some of it, using eyelets and ribbon.....

I've also seen on a crafting channel, laminating some fine lace to make a bag out of.... interesting thoughts on that one so it might be another challenge at a later date..... Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated!!

My first ever stall!

It was only a small stall, just a selection of some of my works. The small giftboxes of cards seemed to go down really well!!!

I am hopefully going to do another stall somewhere local (this was in London!) and get some feedback on what works and what doesn't.

Any tips anyone can give me will be gratefully received!!

Hi everyone!!  Sorry I have been extremely quiet of late - it's been wedding season so I've been really busy!!  I have also done my first ever stall, and I have to say I was quite pleased with myself!!! I felt really positive about my work from the feedback I received, and even got advised that I was undercharging for my work!!!

I'll be uploading some photos over the next few days of the stall, some commissions I have received, and also (if it's tidy enough!) my workstation where I create my masterpieces!!

I am spending this week at home (due to me not being clever enough to reserve energy each day for all the things I have been doing) to recuperate from seeing lovely people and meeting interesting folk,  so I may even get some more crafty stuff done!!!

Hope everyone is well
