1st Web site sale!

At last after 8 months of my web site being up and running I have finally had a sale, it was for 2 phone charms, so it is hopefully the start of good things to come. I check the site most days but didn't go on last Friday as we were helping Shelley & Paul move house from Baildon back to Otley, so didn't see the order until Saturday morning, it took a while for it to sink in that I had a sale!
I have ordered some Gemstones so am going to make some jewellery with them soon, they will have tags on to say what the stones mean and the healing properties that they have. It will be interesting to work with different beads.

Good weekend

Since my last post, the lady who asked about wedding inserts doesn't want them, shame, would have been nice to do.
The ladies trip to York was very nice, had a lot to drink, but wasn't drunk!!
I made some new necklaces and took them to our local club on Saturday night and Sunday lunch time and sold quite a few, thanks ladies for buying from me again.
We have taken our caravan in today for the floor to be sorted, we had a soft spot in it, so they are going to fix that and put us a new carpet in, get it back in 10 days.

Must start to update this more often.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while. Been busy. Since the last post we have got our touring caravan and been away twice. Just to little small and quiet sites, but we enjoyed it.
I have 2 Tiaras in the window of our local Daisy Mays at the moment, they are doing a wedding theme window, so asked if I would put them in with my business cards, Thanks to Emma for thinking of me.
I have had my first enquiry from my website, someone wants just inserts for her invitations, but if she decides she wants me to make them it's a start.
I have also been asked to do a cardmaking demonstration and sale at a Friendship Club in October, so hopefully some nice sales for Christmas, I have already made a few Christmas cards for this, some more still to do.
I am going to York this afternoon on a Ladies trip, should be good, hope the weather holds, but I don't suppose we'll get too wet in the pub!!!!

Not been on for a while, been busy getting some jewellery made for a party I'm doing in a couple of weeks, it should've been tonight but Lisa double booked. Also me and Alan have decided to buy a touring caravan, should be ready to pick up next week.
The weather is lovely at the moment, but I've heard it is supposed to snow over the weekend, roll on summer, can't wait for some lovely sunshine!

Hope everyone had a nice Easter, I have been busy making jewellery as I have a party to do on the 4th April. I haven't been out much this weekend as the weather has been awful, cold, wet, windy and a bit of snow thrown in for good measure. Please don't forget to have a look at my website:

Lots to see and after the party I will try and put some new items on.

Been down to Dudley in the West Midlands for the weekend with 3 friends, Liz, Joyce and Mandy, had a great time! Thanks girls for a really great time. Stayed with Liz's brother-in -law Stan, Thanks Stan for putting up with us!! Poor man his house isn't his own when we go down there.
I have to go to our local hospital tomorrow for a glucose test to see if I may have diabetes, I have to have a fasting blood test and stay there for 2 hours, not a very nice way to spend the start of my 30th wedding anniversary! But we will be celebrating later.

Finished my web site

Hello again, well at long last I've done my web site. Craig and Laura bought me it from Mr. Site for Christmas, It finally arrived at the end of January, so I started it on the 4th February, finally finished it today. Please have a look and let me know what you think.
It is quite exciting, I just hope people like it, and I can sell a few items from it. It should be on Google next week.
Speak later,

Long time, no speak.

Hi, sorry I've not updated the blog for quite a long time. I have been very busy. Unfortunately my step-dad died on 2nd January and I have been down to my mum's a bit. I usually go down a couple of days a week and do some shopping and have a coffee and a chat with her. We are going to our local garden centre tomorrow, it's also our local craft shop, so there might be some spending done!! We will also call in at the cemetary as we haven't been since the day after the funeral.
I have also been busy setting up a Mr. Site website. It is a lot of fun to do, and so far I'm quite proud of it. Mr. Site put it on Google after 6 weeks, so I have allowed myself that time to get it all ready. So hopefully I will be on google on or around the 17th March, I will keep you posted. So as they say, "Watch this space".
