New Commissioned Earrings

These are my first Earrings I've made for Elinor Jenkins Jewellery. They are a commissioned to match with my Green and Gold elastic Bracelet. They took a while to get the beaded bead right but I'm very happy with the outcome.

First Fayre Experience

So yesterday I did my first Christmas Fayre. It was at the offices of Grey in London. I sold 2 things which just covered my costs of parking and the congestion charge so it wasn't a complete sell out. I did a practice run of my stall at home- this is what it looked like.  I wish I had more silver beads as I sold another Silver Sparkly bracelet and I think I could have sold a few more too. Shame I'm still waiting for the beads to arrive. I just hope they arrive soon.

I'm doing one for the NCT tomorrow which hopefully won't be a complete waste of time and that brave mums in Highbury will brave the snow and have money to spend!

Martha is currently playing the saucepan lids as cymbals so I think I better play with her before the kitchen gets demolished

Folksy Sunday Showcase

OK so I've managed to Folksy Friday and Sunday Showcase (something of a record for me)

This week I've decided to showcase mamma made uk / Trish Evans. I absolutely love these little booties, perfect for the freezing weather today too. I look forward to seeing more things if they're as beautiful as them!

Good Luck with your first Folksy Sale! Kate
