I really need to blog more often, I am forming a mental list of what I want to share with you, and it's getting a bit long for one post.

Firstly, I received some more goodies in the post, some books I'd ordered from www.amazon.co.jp. Very inspirational, here's two of them (I got a bit carried away and order 5). I'll do a little review of them sometime soon.


Unfortunately, they have stopped the surface mail option so the postage is a bit high, not sure I'll be getting anymore.

Secondly, I have used my gocco printer! I have been busy making brooch cards, here are a few, the rest are on etsy. Can't wait to have a go at printing on fabric. I'm thinking linen bags with printed pockets.


Thirdly, I have lots of new things in my Etsy shop. I did a craft fair at the weekend, not a huge success, but I generated some interest in my workshops. I only booked it on Wednesday (someone had dropped out), so I frantically spent the next few days crafting. I stayed up until one o'clock the night before finishing stuff off, infact, one of my felted bags was still a little damp on the day of the fair, but no one noticed. So I have spent a huge portion of the day listing, I even multi-tasked and listed two necklaces whilst cooking the tea!

Now I'm going to have a glass of wine and give my eyes a break from the computer. I still have more to share, but I'll save that for another day.

These brooch cards are gorgeous. I love the ink design on the card. What does it look like when you remove the brooch? Brilliant idea.

Wow, the brooch cards are beautiful. They really are miniature works of art. Books look interesting too.
