Wow, I'm not very good at blogging!

It's been almost 3 months since my last post, oops! I've been so busy with work, brownies, and other stuff!

Last week I gave up one of my jobs though, so should in theory have more time!

I have still been making and listing in odd snatches of time... not that I have much spare!

Here are some of the items I've made recently.. all can be found on Folksy - Here!

A-Team 4th and 5th August!

Really enjoying this listing challenge, it's the first one I've done! By reading the forum posts every day I get to see so many lovely items created by lovely people! For example I love this: and am so tempted to buy it!

My items from yesterday and today are both charm bracelets:

Not had any sales for ages though... everyone else in the A-Team seems to be getting loads... I need the sales fairy!!

A-team Days 2 and 3

I forgot to blog yesterday afternoon with yesterdays item! So am doing a double blog today!

Yesterday I added this pretty glass crackle bead charm bracelet:

Today I've just added this interesting swarovski bracelet:

In other news I bought Lego Harry Potter for my pc yesterday... and did in fact spend almost all day playing it... it's great!! (good way to waste my remaining 4 1/2 weeks off work!) I would reccomend it!

I'm Back, and joining the A-Team!

Had a very busy few weeks - end of term at work so loads to do, 3 re-enactment shows 3 weekends in a row, planning Brownie pack holiday.. and making lots of jewellery! With all of this I have had no time to blog (or post on Folksy!)

But now I'm into the 2nd week of my summer holidays I now have time! And because I have made lots of jewellery I haven't listed yet I decided to join in the August listing challenge on Folksy - A Team!

I hope to list an item a day throughout the month of August, with the exception of the 5 days I'm away on Brownie Pack holiday though.

So here is yesterdays:

Will post a picture and link to todays item later!

I'm pretty impressed with myself - I made £65 tonight on my jewellery stall at a Pamper evening, and took 2 custom orders! :D

Very pleased!

First Stall!

I haven't blogged for a couple of weeks because I have been so busy making things... because tonight I'll be running my first stall at a fundraising pamper evening!

I'm a little excited, but mostly nervous!

I have a table cloth, 2 notice boards covered in fabric to pin things on, I have made little cards with my name and web address for my earrings, I have made loads more jewellery, I have bought things like a receipt book and price tags... I think I am almost ready, but am a bit stressed, as it's the first time I've done anything like this, and am sure I will have forgotten something!

Will post some pictures and some feedback later on!!

If anyone is in or near Basingstoke and fancies coming along, it's at the Play Council office at Winklebury Community Centre (just off Winklebury Way) from 7:30 onwards tonight, and will cost £3 to get in, which includes a drink and nibbles! There's going to be jewellery, handmade cards, massage, reiki, candles, and much more!

And these sparkly earrings:

Also - Green Day on Saturday were amazing... It was the best Gig I've ever been to, and I'm still buzzing now!!
Photos taken on my phone, so not amazing quality!
