Winter robins

>> Monday, 30 November 2009

Followed a lovely tutorial by DiamanteDream on Folksy this afternoon with Katie and Ben to draw and colour a robin. Here's our finished art work:


Not quite as pretty as the original, but each robin has its own little character!


Two items sold - woohoo!

I was feeling a little despondent this afternoon with no additional sales since opening the shop, especially as the radio was going on about today being THE day for internet Christmas shopping. Then this evening I see I've sold another Patchy Pockets! The denim and floral one has been snapped up - better get making some more.


A busy morning (and afternoon)

It has taken me way too long to sort out my new blog. I tried a couple of fabulous templates first, but sadly parts of them just weren't going to work, mainly the link bar which I feel is quite important. Anyway, here I am, up and running and ready to show you some new items I've listed in my shop this morning.

A new Patchy Pockets. I love these and have one in my handbag at all times. Having six little holders inside they're ideal for keeping safe all those bits and bobs that get lost in your handbag. Equally good for keeping in the car with notepad, pen, plasters, headache tablets etc., or in the house. My daughter, who has the first Patchy I made, stores all her telephone numbers and addresses of all her friends. It's so easy to just grab hold of it and know where everything is!

The one I listed this morning has got to be a favourite. My other favourite one sold within hours of me listing it! This one's denim with a very pretty floral fabric inside. All tied up with a thin pink ribbon.

I've also listed another cute dolly peg tree decoration. This time a Santa with cloves stuffed hessian sack - all very festive!

November 09

First post on my new blog and I do believe this picture is very similar to that posted around this time last year on my family blog!

When I made a few of these last year for myself, family and friends, I just loved the heady scent that filled the room and so making them again was lovely - roll on Christmas!
There's two different ones available, both can be viewed and purchased from Ellie's Treasures, Folksy.

Would like to thank all the lovely people who have offered me a Sunshine Blog Award, I'm really touched and have displayed the award on my Our Day blog page. Elaine x
