News from a shamefaced so called blogger

Well what can I say – suppose I am on the road to being a one hit wonder in the blogging world, life and Christmas just seemed to take over.  It’s not even that my foray into the crafting world has been a disaster – far from it really I managed to sell four fairies, three pixies and six tutus over two months.  I was only supposed to be at Edwinstowe craft centre for one month but the ladies that run the unit invited me to stay for another month with no further standing charge taking me up to Christmas, admittedly at 50% commission they could see a nice profit but at least they could see some potential in my products.

It has also opened another opportunity, I have been approached by someone who has another unit near Rotherham and she wants to sell my fairies.   This will give me a chance to review how much to sell my fairies for and negotiate on a better commission rate!

As an experiment it went well, I made some cash, proved that there is a market for what I make, made me some new friends and another avenue to follow – all in all not too bad.

New Years resolutions?  Be a better blogger – will try harder.

Happy New Year to you x
