Decisions, Decisions...

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend.

I had a nice relaxing weekend spent at home which is unusual as I am usually spend time going to workshops at the weekend, so it was nice to spend time at home, I have another weekend at home next week and then the workshops begin :)

I have been umming and arghing as to whether to start selling my mixed media projects and handmade cards.  After chatting with a few of my friends I have decided to try and sell them from my blog to begin with as I haven't sold any in quite a while.  I do get private messages on Facebook asking if I sell my cards and sold quite a few that way.

If you, my friends, have any hints and tips you would like to share on where and how you sell yours it would be greatly appreciated.  Also what do you charge?  I don't want to under sell but at the same time don't want to over charge either.  I suppose it is finding that happy medium.

At the top of my blog I have created 2 pages one for mixed media and the other for cards.
I would be interested to know what you think and your experiences.

Enjoy your day!
Thanks for visiting!

Maria Simms Workshop Makes

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing with you my makes from the workshop held by Maria Simms which I attended on Saturday 9th July in Preston.  I didn't show them before as Maria had another workshop teaching the same and didn't want to spoil their day.

I really enjoyed this workshop, learning new techniques and revisiting techniques I hadn't done in a while.  Don't you find that you forget to use the old techniques you have used after a time and move onto other techniques.

We created 4 projects, one of the techniques I was able to make 2 cards.






I am looking forward to the next workshop in August

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
