Happy New Year and I'm Back

Well after a long break, my last post was in June! My batteries are recharged and a lot of changes have taken place.

Firstly I had major problems with my website, had already changed hosts once but it continued. Got to April and had had enough, so closed my website down and reopened my Folksy shop. It was a risk but have had huge success and never looked back. More sales in 3 months than I have ever had on my own website. I do work at it though and list either something new or a relist every day, visit the other posters on the challenge thread, love and pin their items. Daily promotions on Facebook, Instagram etc.

New Year for me is a rebranding hence a new banner will gradually get my business cards etc changed but as have quite a lot atm, not going to just throw away. New items to make, so many ideas and my NY journal is filling up already. Hope you will join me on my journey.

Have missed blogging and hope Julie will let me back into the fold but needed time away as my batteries were running on empty.

Concentrating on Valentines Day, I know you may all groan as a few weeks off but time goes so quickly and in a blink of an eye it will be the 14th of February. A few makes so far some vintage styling and some not.

Made some lip balm cases out of remnants of vinyl and glitter fabric, they have gone down well. Done from a design in the hoop on my embroidery machine.

Did the usual Christmas Fair in the next village, only 1 I am doing now. Went well good atmosphere and sold lots of goodies. Meeting up with a lady I got chatting to for afternoon tea at the local pub on Wednesday.
