Bonjour Mes Amis.....
I am now counting down the day 'til half term.... More time to craft and get some work done on the website! I am struggling for visits, so need to do something to make myself more prominent....although as a jewellery maker/retailer I know I am in one seriously saturated market! (Like the alliteration there?? I am learning something in all my school hours) I am doing Facebook and Twitter, I have pages on Crafty-Bitz, Linkedin, Brownbook, and Wow Thank You! If anyone has any other ideas then please do let me know! :)
Have learned a new weave this week....the Spiral. Here is my first spiral bracelet.
I have also made some little silk and silver macrame bracelets. I thought they'd make lovely little stocking fillers and bring younger visitors to my stall next month.
They won't win any awards, but I think they are simple and ideal for little gifts.
I don't have a great deal to tell you this week so I'd like to, if I may, introduce you to my friend's site. Bags of Happiness is run by fellow Channel Islander Hester. I met Hester at The Living Legend Christmas Fayre last year. Among her gorgeous work are her little fabric owls. I bought one for my niece and she loves it. They are all individuals with their own expressions and personalities....You can see Hester's work at here website http://www.bagsofhappiness.com/ I can not recommend her highly enough, her prices and quality are second to none.
Please do pop along and see Hester's site....it's well worth a visit.
Anyway....I am off to Handmade Harbour for this weeks Handmade Monday....see you next week!!
Bye for now
