With a big thank you, that's a good place to start.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last post, they are appreciated ENORMOUSLY, really, really, they are. Hugely gigantically appreciated, thank you so much.
And next, I wanted to do my usual blog post last Friday, but I had to just keep my head down and carry on stoically with the commission I was working on, the deadline was Monday, (yesterday), and it was a race against time. I'll show you that piece another time.
Now that's done, I can breath more easily, it feels quite luxurious, to breath a little more easily, I suddenly have the misguided notion that I have all the time in the world. I don't have all the time in the world, but it feels like it compared to last week.
Before we went away on our weekend break a week or so ago (which I still haven't talked about because other things have got in the way), I made these three broches above, to commission. I love making these brooches. They're time consuming, but ever so satisfying to create. And sort of more-ish. I've started making another brooch, and that might be followed by different kinds of brooches, but I'm not sure yet. That's probably me just thinking aloud.
I've been putting a few things in my etsy shop today.
Some more brooches, different to the holly and berry brooches.
And talking about cards, I've listed some tags in my shop too.
They are just adorable!
A set of five Christmas tags, to go with the Christmas cards I'm selling (I've just listed a pack of five Christmas cards too, as well as the pack of ten Christmas cards I already have for sale in my shop). There are only six sets of the Christmas tags available, so not many.
And a small number of sets of five tags to go with the greetings cards I also sell in my shop.
I've had a few people asking if I would sell tags, because when they've received something they've bought from me, they've loved the tag I send with the parcel. So I've got a small number printed, just to see how it goes really.
There is something lovely about these tags, just tiny versions of the images on the greetings cards. There's something very wonderful and covetable about their small size. They're like teeny weeny postcards.
I had a fun old time punching the holes, then puncing in the eyelets on each tag, then putting the string through! Still, I like little touches like this, I feel it makes them a little more special, especially having an eyelet rather than a plain hole to thread the string through. I love detail.
I should have put this blog post up a few weeks ago, but you know how it is, other things got in the way, so I thought I should put it up pronto, before it's too late and Christmas has passed.
Is there something I've left out? I can't think. No. I think that's it for today.
Oh yes, my etsy shop link is here (!)
Righty-ho, I'd better be off, things to do, things to make, doggies to cuddle, and tea to drink.
