Organamasation!

      No Comments on Organamasation!

I made a start last night on getting my stitch marker stock price tagged and organised. Looks pretty swish, non? Of course, I had less crochet markers to do by a fair old measure, so I’m going to be at it for a bit for the knit ones. Still, at least getting the bulk of it done this far out… Read more »

Today has been… eh. The broadband at the office was at a super-crawl on the upload, which meant that my ability to work was severely hampered. It started picking up towards the end of the work day, but yanno, time lost. It will hopefully be better tomorrow, but we’ll see when tomorrow comes. I’ve not done much crafting yet, but… Read more »

Or something, heh. I’ve not done as many things as I meant to do today, but I’ve done some… some is better than none. I also made myself contact the seller that I hadn’t gotten all my bits from. I hate having to do that, and more so because they got something wrong in my last order and I’m all… Read more »

Again and Again

I’ve finished the knitting of the hat, but I keep cacking up the sewing slightly. It’s not the end of the world because it’s not like it takes that long, but it’s still annoying. It also doesn’t help that I ‘have’ to do it top to bottom to get it to line up right and make the top look properly… Read more »

First thing this morning, I finished the last few stray ends of my blanket. I realised I was almost done when I went to bed, but opted to… well, go to bed. It’s currently tucked up in the chair on Z’s side of the bed, waiting for when it’s actually needed. And of course, since I’m supposed to be doing… Read more »

Z took my booking form for the school fete in today. The cost per exhibitor is £10, plus a raffle prize. He suggested I make something, so I’m going to whip up a cat hat to donate. So that’s another project on the needles. I also have an increasingly full shopping basket on eBay, as I definitely need more beads…. Read more »

Nothing Much

Today has been a day of doing very little, but doing it well. Both girls were home with me, and were awesome at entertaining both themselves as individuals, but also as a pair. I think that we’re all going to make it through this half-term, seeing how there’s only two more day-days before the weekend and return to ‘normal’ operations…. Read more »

Hard at Work

I have been putting my hands to crafting today. The missing order finally showed up, so I was able to make a few of the rainbow bracelets for my shop. One sold pretty quickly as I sort of expected, but it still makes me grin. Everything else today has been dedicated towards getting more things into the crochet marker quarter… Read more »

Not Quite

      No Comments on Not Quite

One of the reasons I charge the prices I do is that it can take me a long time to come up with, and execute suitable designs. While this one came out super pretty, it also came out a bit too short. Which means reevaluating what I did, and finding a way to add a few more beads, but not… Read more »

Dangly Spangly… Things

      No Comments on Dangly Spangly… Things

If there is one thing I dislike about running an Etsy shop, it’s having to try to write cover for my listings. Most of mine are pretty slapdash, so I’m hoping people find them charming and amusing. >__> It’s obviously worse if I do a lot of listings at once, which is why most days I stick to one or… Read more »
