Preparing for pampering

Due to Christmas and getting ready to return to work after maternity leave, I've not found any time for crafting. I've also decided to get rid of most of my card making supplies as I've concentrated on jewellery now and have little time for that let alone anything else.  Hopefully it'll clear some room to tidy up my jewellery supplies into some decent storage and tidy up the utility room a bit, which my OH is always complaining about.

Quite a few things I've managed to sell online (just love those Facebook craft selling pages, and of course ebay), and the things I've had which probably wouldn't sell due to either being free/half used/too heavy to post, I shall be donating to the local nursery and/or school.  Hopefully they'll be able to use a lot of it.

I have got a stall at a pamper evening in a couple of weeks time.  It's come round really quickly, so I must use some of my gemstones and make a couple more bracelets.  Hopefully this will give me a chance to see whether pamper evenings are better for selling than Christmas and Summer fetes given my previous experience.  Let's hope so.

Happy 2012

Just a quite post to say Happy New Year to everyone.   Hope 2012 brings you everything you hope for.

I'm hoping to manage still to make my jewellery and try other new crafts even though I'll be starting back at work in a week or so.  It's going to be a tough work life balance to manage as well as making sure my baby settles in well as nursery and adjusts to the change of not having his mum with him all day every day.
