An Apology and an Announcement
First of all, I feel I need to apologise to all my regular followers for the total lack of posts of recent, and the fact that even when I have posted, no new projects have been blogged about. I am really sorry for this, my computer’s death was partly to blame, but another reason was that I have just been really busy recently. Busy doing what you might ask. Well, busy making lots and lots of things in preparation for my stall I have at a Christmas market soon.
That’s right! I have booked a stall at the Made-It Market in Cambridge on the 26th November, and I am so so so excited! And nervous too, but I try not to feed that emotion. So, anyway, as a result of this, I have been trying to get busy making things to actually put on the 6 foot table I have booked (that’s kind of big, I’ll have to make a lot of bags to fill that space!). Having a stall and making things to actually sell, instead of just making them for friends, is great, it’s actually kind of a big deal, and it has left me in a bit of a dilema. A dilema to do with the challenge I set myself back in January to complete 111 projects in 2011. Now, if I am going to actually make a success of this market stall, I am probably going to have to make close to 100 different things to sell, so I am going to definately go over my initial target. Not a problem of course, but I think, to keep things simple, I am going to change the definition of what classifies a new project.
So, I have come up with a solution. Every time I make something new, that I’ve never made or blogged about before, that can count as a new project, even if I make 20 of them, it’s still just one new project.
Some projects you can be expecting me to blog about soon:
- Fabric scrap baubles. I have about 80 of them, they are beautiful and I will hopefully include a tutorial when I blog about them.
- patchwork coasters. Lots and lots of patchwork coasters.
- Handmade lip balm, n adorable little aluminum pots.
- Handmade soap, in the most amazing fragrances (well, my favourite fragrances anyway!)
So there you have it, a little taster of what’s to come.
Have you had a stall at a market? Do you have any helpful hints or tips or some ideas of what not to do? I am really quite nervous, excited, but nervous!
