What have I been up to this week? Well I've spent a lot of time doing some more pruning of the website, and getting it ready to coincide with my intention to launch a range of hair accessories to co-ordinate with the uniform of different dance schools. I already do them for Lucy's dance school, and I'm going to be using that, on my site, to direct other dance teachers to. Now I just need to do the brave bit and write an email advertising myself - quite a scary thought.
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, the friendliest blog hop around. If you're wondering about the title, just check out the last 2 blog posts and you'll see I made a counting error. If you are new to us, then let me give you a warm welcome hug and encourage you to sit yourself down with a nice cuppa and some biscuits and enjoy lots of blogs by some very talented crafters.
I'm also going to co-ordinate the dance theme by creating a range of cards for dance exams, festivals and shows, so lots to do and plan, but most importantly time to be brave and just have a go - scary stuff, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Welcome to another Handmade Monday. I apologise for the briefness and lateness of the last few but I've been a bit swept away with various family commitments and I forget that I can actually schedule posts to post whenever I want (note to self: remember that fact). Right now I'm sitting in my garden, enjoying the sun, whilst writing this - I could get very used to this!
I have also decided on a plan to try and increase the sales of school uniform bows, but I don't want to tell you much more about that just yet.
Crikey! I'm not usually this unreliable but have been caught out again this week! I hope everyone has had a good week and I promise to publish on time next week!!
Better late than never! Apologies for not getting a chance to post yesterday, but we took full advantage of the gorgeous weather in Essex yesterday, and didn't get home till quite late.
We welcome all crafters and craft lovers who would like to participate in our blog hop, and there are only a few rules (which can be found here.)
I'm keeping this short and sweet this week, what have you been up to?
Welcome to Handmade Monday, a friendly blog hop that will take you to many fabulous and creative blogs each week. We love new people joining us, and we have just a few simple rules which can be read here.
Now a request for all of you, I want to read even more crafty blogs (yes, even all of you are not enough!) so tell me - which crafty blog can't you do without/makes you laugh/inspires you?
Have a good week
Welcome to another Handmade Monday. If this is the first time you've visited us let me extend you a warm welcome. We are the friendliest blog hop on the internet (in my opinion) and love having new people join us. For those wishing to join in you can do so in two ways. The first is the easiest, simply click on any of the links below and read away. There's never a compulsion to comment but we all love getting comments on our blogs.
The second way is to link your own creative blog, it really is a simple process and its also a great way to increase your profile in Google.
Secondly today I'd like to encourage you to pop over to our newest blogger Andrea and read her post from last week (here) It was the perfect first post to join us and I am looking forward to knowing more about her and her makes.
That's it from me today, I'll link up my blog from Wednesday below so you can see what crafty things I've been up to in the last few weeks.
*puts away the feather duster* *cough* *splutter* Is anyone out there?
If you're reading this and confused, don't worry, I haven't written a stand alone blog post in such a long while, I thought a little light dusting was in order before I did anything else!
So, let's start properly, welcome to my blog. Today I thought I'd share with you my newest passion - beads and beading. Will you soon see jewellery popping up in my shop soon? In a word - no. I'm not remotely interested in making necklaces, bracelets etc. but I am beginning to incorporate beading into hair accessories, initially focussing on general accessories and then, perhaps, moving into offering bridal accessories and/or those for dancers.
This post will be linked up to next Sunday's Handmade Monday and also to Handmade Business Wednesday
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, apologies for the tardiness of the post today but we were busy at a child's birthday party - Lucy has a better social life than I do! If you are new, welcome, pull up a comfy chair, a tipple of your choice and a biscuit or two and enjoy reading some of the best blogs on the internet
This is because in the last year and a bit, I've not written a blog post that isn't Handmade Monday and I think I need to blog regularly with posts titles being picked up in search engines etc. and I've also got a bit lazy with content I think. My aim is to keep Handmade Monday from Sunday - Tuesday evening, then on a Wednesday post a normal blog post about me/my business and then link that up as part of the next Handmade Monday. Does that make sense?
I can't wait to see what you've all been up to,
Welcome to another Handmade Monday. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter holiday and that no-one was too badly troubled by the storm that was in the south of the UK. We've lost a fence panel and half our gate, but fortunately no other damage was done.
If you'd like to join our crafty blog hop, simply pop over here and check our few rules and then link away at the bottom.
What's next for my crafting? Well I want to work on some beaded head pieces, and learn some more beading techniques and then there's also origami I want to play with and at least half a dozen other things from this book.
That's all from me today, can't wait to find out what you've all been up to.
Welcome to another Handmade Monday, the friendliest blog linky on the planet (well, I think so!!). A huge thank you for your patience last week, I do try to get the blog ready for each Sunday but it doesn't always work out that way. If you are new to us, then let me extend a very warm welcome. I love reading new blogs, we have only a few simple rules to join in with a blog but anyone is welcome to read and comment all the fabulous blogs that link each week.
We're both really pleased with how they turned out (mum's is on the left and mine is on the right) and I can't wait to try it again on another pottery shape. All in all it was 3 hours very well spent (with a delicious lunch too).
That's all from me this week, there won't be a Handmade Monday next week as I shall be busy with doing family and Easter stuff, so the next time will be 3rd April. Have a very Happy Easter with lots of crafting time and chocolate!
