Monday, 27 October 2008
That day was very busy for me all in all. I started the morning at 4.30am as I do a small job at the weekends. This was followed by the coffee morning I did with my friend and then topped off with a child's birthday party (scary theme) having to dress 2 under 5's as a witch and an evil doctor. A couple hours of over excited kids and parcel the parcel fun and I was well and truly poopped.

Today has been a day of bags! I am going to a coffee morning on Saturday to sell my wares, or at least attempt to sell my wares to your typical village school mums. This is my very first time of trying to sell my goods face to face and I am getting a bit stressed and a lot scared. What if they hate them? What if I have gone to all this effort and not one person buys something. Fingers crossed then.
I have been so busy filling my bags up with all manner of crafty goodies today that I really didn't think I would have time to feature my favs of the day from Etsy and Dawanda, but I am managing to squeeze it in while my boyf puts out kids to bed. So without further ado here they are.My first one from Etsy is this from myauntdebbie, it's so much fun and I would love to go to a party with Aunt Debbie.
Next is this beautiful hair clips from kitchentablestudios. The whole shop is full of quirky items I would love to own.
Now isn't this gorgeous. This is from http://en.dawanda.com/shop/letthemeatcake I want to fill this up with cupcakes.

My 2 shops are on Etsy and Dawanda so check them out if you get a spare moment. Both sites are an excellent place to find that rare and unusual gift. If you are fed up with buying the same old stuff from the High Street then go and take a peek, I promise you will not be disappointed.
I love the sites so much that I am thinking of showing a selection of my favourites goodies from both on a weekly basis. Look out for that this Monday!
To add a bit of colour to my page I thought I would post a couple of my newest items. All my kits are great presents to give to crafters. They are more personal and pleasant than the plastic boxes you get in the shops and once you have used all the bits and bobs from the kit you are left with a lovely little drawstring bag. I try and use as much vintage and recycled items as possible and mix them in with the new so you get a wonderful array of items to help your imagination run wild.
