Late blog post!

A late blog post again, I know!

I have begun filling up my Etsy shop (the first of the new items can be seen to the right of my blog) and I will continue to fill the shop with new items every couple of weeks, so there will always be something new being added in! I’ve made a nice summery bracelet in pink colours which looks lovely, and there will be matching earrings to go with it. I will be able to make this with other colours too, so if you would like it in another colour variation (blues and greens, oranges and reds…) then let me know your request, and I will try to match it. There are currently some new necklaces and earrings in the shop that are an antique bronze/steampunk look, including musical notes, owls and birds. I’ve recently sold a necklace to the USA, so that’s two of my items sold through Etsy that have go to The States, which I’m pretty chuffed about.

In between wallpapering and painting I’ve been think a lot about the interior of the new house, and the vintage look that both me and my other half want, so, the sewing machine will be coming in to action!!! I’ve found some owl material in Dunelm so I’ll be making some curtains to put up in our craft room and will also look in to making a range of items to sell in my Etsy shop. I want to branch out and diversify my business so while the sewing machine is out, I’ll be hopefully making some new items to sell through Hearts and Crafts. I have lots of ideas, just not enough time to do it in! For those of you who are interested in shopping for handmade and vintage items, the following up and coming fairs in and around the West Midlands will be a good place visit:

Saturday 28th June Bantock House and Gardens, Wolverhampton

Saturday 28th June Codsall Village Hall, Codsall

Sunday 29th June Sutton Coldfield Town Hall, Sutton Coldfield

Saturday 5th July National Brewery Centre, Burton On Trent

Sunday 6th July Coven Memorial Hall, Coven

Until next time, enjoy the sunshine... although, looking outside at the rain and thunder that's happening, I think we've had our summer!!!
