I have been totally devoting my time (whilst I'm not doing the day job) to crafting , knitting , bit of crochet and sewing and generally trying to get my lovely goodies out there for all to see.
I also tried my hand at the Christmas craft fair at my local garden centre , which was a bit of a flop. Even though I cleverly displayed all my items this time , still no customers came my way :(
All is not lost though and I now have some of my accessories on display in the garden centre full time.
I've also been extending my range of items , trying to find the ideal creation that will get those sales.
Flower brooches seem to be one of my top sellers.
So are my hot water bottle covers that I created specially for the Christmas market.
And then there are the little felted Christmas trees , just perfect.
Sales so far this year have been really good. 7 Sales in one month is brilliant for me. Just think back to this time last year where I was achieving only 1 sale a month :(
Hope this blog posting will inspire other new crafters :) and the more experienced ones will have a little smile on their faces thinking back to a time when they were just beginning their journey.
