Delightful Disaster

      No Comments on Delightful Disaster

I have… stuff… everywhere. In some ways, it’s both better and worse now that I have the tray in situ. It doesn’t quite fit right anywhere, so I’ve got it balanced atop something to make it more stable in the space I’ve assigned it. I’m kind of amazed how many little bags it has in it. I know my shop… Read more »

Moarrr

      No Comments on Moarrr

Yes, I had moar beads arrive today! These were all mainly on the small size, but I’ve already found some inspiration. I made two sets of crochet markers, and am trimming off the matching two sets of knit markers. I’m hoping I can come up with a name sooner rather than later so I can get them posted to my… Read more »

You Guessums, Bead Edition

      No Comments on You Guessums, Bead Edition

There is this one particular random assortment of beads that I keep ordering from Amazon, and it reliably gives me some of the beads that I want to work with. It also gives me some I’ve not figured out what I want to do with, but I’ll figure it out as I go along. What I am probably going to… Read more »

Hard at Work

      No Comments on Hard at Work

Actually, that sort of wasn’t true. I didn’t really do any work-work, and was easily swayed away from it by Z (and the fact Littler decided I was furniture for long stretches). I hopefully will get some of the things done tomorrow, but the main thing will be having a proper bath before going out tomorrow night and having to… Read more »

I didn’t do a lot of making today, but I did get three new listings up in the shop¬†(blah blah, buy us with money, blah blah). I had two I needed to list from yesterday, and one that I managed to cobble together to my satisfaction while Z was over at his parent’s house with the girls. And why were… Read more »

Easter Heroes

      No Comments on Easter Heroes

We are currently over at Z’s parent’s house. The girls started off the visit by starting their Easter Egg hunt — before any of the adults could process that they had started it, ha ha. It’s been the usual, pleasant family do though. There’s been food for nibbling on, kids running amok, and general chilling. Z and his dad watched… Read more »

Possibilities

I had a box of beads come in today, which was yay. I’ve got some goodies up in my shop now, with the lower price of ¬£3.50 for a set of ten. I’m hoping that will entice people to come in and spend money. We’ll see. We also stopped at Hobbycrack earlier today, but alas? There were no beads crooning… Read more »

I Earned This Coffee

      No Comments on I Earned This Coffee

Today, I celebrate my first sale, woo! Granted, it was a custom request that predated me setting up the store, but it also is kind of the thing that nudged me into doing it. Tippy wanted to pay me what my efforts were worth, and I guess I needed that bit of validation to take a big step and *try*… Read more »

Masochist, Me

      No Comments on Masochist, Me

I’m probably making a terrible, hilarious mistake, but I went ahead and set up an Etsy shop. I don’t think I’m going to make much money off of it, but that isn’t really the point. The point is that I REALLY want to make lots of stitch markers, and I can only give so many to friends before I run… Read more »
