To Market, To Market....

This is something I have been wanting to do for ages, I have been planning, preparing and stocking up for months. Finally I have found some spare time and a suitable place to give it a go, to see how it goes.

So today I am attempting to sell my handmade bits and pieces at a local Market. A few years ago, before Little Man was born, I tried selling my jewellery at some of the local markets. It went ok, not great, but I did manage to sell a few things each time, and at a pre-Xmas Market I sold quite a lot. This time it is that much easier because I can drive myself.

Well, it wasn't a very successful day, not a lot of people, and not a lot of spenders, but it was fun, and I will keep trying, when I get time.

Some things I've been working on

New Years resolution #1 - finish organising my craft room so it's usable.
New Years resolution #2 - get back into blogging regularly and be a better blogger.

So I'm trying out a new way of blogging, to try to make it easier, using blogpress on my iPod. As a test run, here are some photos of things I have been making lately, and some thifty finds.

Canvas set made for mum for Xmas, it's a bit hard to see in the photo but they say Create, Play, Be.

Fabric covered bead necklaces. I made a few more of these as Xmas gifts, but didn't take photos (bad blogger!!).

Pairs of retro wooden tile earrings.

And a major thrift store score, a cotton reel holder for 10 cents.

A candlewick bedspread for $2.

And a glass jar with fancy lid for $2. Also the doily in the necklace & earring photos for $1.

I'm still about a month behind in reading all the blog posts from blogs I follow, and it's impossible to catch up. I think I follow too many blogs, but I can't stand to give any of them up, because they are all so great. Everyone should take a months blogging break so I can catch up.
