I'm melting....

I'm currently in Holland visiting the parents. It is 24 degrees inside without the heating on and its 11.50pm. It's gonna be a long night I think. So, quite a bit has happened since my last post. I no longer sell flip flops due to staff cuts so I have signed up to a temp agency, I have made a few Random Quirks sales (woo!) and as well as enjoying the on/off summer weather in the UK I went to my 3rd craft fair. It was quite a jolly affair as I actually made back my table fare this time (woo!). Loads of people actually wanted my business card which was also a plus. Check out my table; definitely my best display yet, not that there was much to compete with, lol.

It was really nice to have my new rings, key-rings and stud earrings on display. Plus though there was a steady stream of people, it was pretty quiet overall so I had plenty of time to make some new stuff :) I made 13 new items. 3 rings, 5 pairs of stud earrings, 1 pair of dangle earrings, 1 brooch, a keyring and two necklace. Yes indeed I was a busy bee :)


Now I'm on the hunt for the next one, where it will be who know. I'm really enjoying making the new products and really want more supplies but I'm pretty poor at the mo. Am trying to save up for a holiday as well so I'm putting all spare monies towards that. I'm phasing out the hand painted t-shirts as you can tell because I think in my case its best just to stick to made to order stuff and I just want to concentrate on the jewellery. 

That's all for now folks, I still have a mountain of dissertation work to do. I've only done 5000 words out of 15000 at the least - Yikes!
