I'm going to have to get my butt into gear to promoting my shop as it has been really slack lately. It's quite hard selling jewellery as there are so many people who make and sell there own there is alot of competition. I have lost heart in it recently but i've just ordered some handmade lampwork beads, one set from misi and one from folksy so hopefully i'll make some nice piece's with them.

After chatting to other stall holders and swapping craft fair events i hopefully have a few more to go to.
Overall i had a great day and i'm looking forwards to the next one.

My son got a temperature yesterday but was adament he was going to school as he had a school disco afterwards. They both seem ok today so i'm not sure what it was.
I've got my first craft fair on sunday so i'm starting to feel a bit scared. These are a pair of earrings i made last week to take with me.

This is another set i made last night to take to the craft fair with me on sunday. I've also got hubby to get the pasting table out of the shed so i can practice setting up my display.
I'm keeping everything crossed it's a success. It's in cefn village hall which is in north wales not to far from rhyl and prestatyn. I'll be down in my caravan for the weekend so it's not to far to drive too although hubby will have to drive home afterwards as the kids are in school monday.
