Vistaprint - genius site!

So, I've been playing around recently re-branding myself - as you can see new banner! I really haven't had a moment to update my Etsy shop (I've been moving house), admittedly I've been a bit lazy and put it onto vacation mode whilst I got myself sorted. I have been busy making new bits and pieces, the ones which don't sell at the craft show next weekend I will of course pop into the shop - if I get a minute I'll get photographing and put some pieces in before then.

Anyway, onto the main blog subject - Vistaprint. If you haven't discovered it yet, it's an absolutely fantastic printing website where you can get loads of great marketing for your business either really cheap or even better free, with just postage to pay - I have become addicted! I've bought loads of business cards, postcards and my favourite - a new vinal banner for my craft show table. If you need anything, please do check them out - - brilliant I assure you!

That's it for today - just a quick one. I will be back with photos of new pieces and hopefully a tale of success at the craft show. Ooh and some pics of my new craft display - my fella made it, and I'm really pleased with the result!

All the best!

Lovely new items and New Year Plans!

Only a short post today; I'm trying to reorganise myself after all the Christmas craft stalls, jewellery parties and the end of the craft exhibition. It certainly was a busy couple of months!

Well, last year proved to be somewhat of a learning curve. What I can say is that jewellery parties were a big success, I only did two of them but they proved to be a lot more profitable than the craft stalls as there's no competition and no hire charge; so this year that is definitely the way to go, plenty of jewellery parties!

So into the new year! I finally got round to adding some new bits and pieces to my shop; I've still got a tonne of things to put on there so do pop back and check if you've got a mo. I'm trying to work on doing more of my jewellery in sterling silver now. I've also added my new Funky Chunky Crochet Bracelet, which is part of a new baby proof range I designed for my sister so she could wear jewellery without the littleun eating it! Well she still eats it but it's safe and indestructable!

Finally, my exhibition closes on Friday but it was successful with thirteen pieces selling and some kept to be sold in the shop as a permanent feature! That's all for now, sorry about the delay in writing - I will try and do better next time!
