Make some brooches (as requested by my friend Amanda)
Tidy the craft half-a-room (boo!)
List items on Folksy (about time to!) Have a fab time at the stitch and bitch (my life is so hard)
Jan's Raspberry Zill Muffs!
I am pleased to say that I have achieved all of the above and without too much nagging needed from the husband regarding the whole tidying situation.
A lot of my making recently has not been for me but for other people whether they be presents, comissions for friends or for my Folksy Shop.
I really enjoy making presents and comissioned items for friends. I get a real buzz from their reaction to having such a thoughtful gift that has obviously been made with love, care and attention. As has been previously posted on here I made the fantabulous apron for Shinybees birthday and have a hand made present awaiting delivery for Baby Shinybees! For Mother's Day I made my mother-in-law a crocheted mug hug, that went down really well, and a journal wrap and tub for my Mum which she loved too!
Making for my Folksy shop is different, and sometimes more difficult, as there is not a particular person in mind when I'm making. I always make items that I would like to own as I feel that if they are good enough for me then they are good enough for others! I have been struggling with what to sell and so have opted to make a few different items to see what sells and have made it clear that I will make custom orders as requested!
The Red book wrap I made today for sale on my Folksy Shop!
My voyage into online selling for items I have made myself is rather scary but quite exciting at the same time! I just hope people like what they see!
