Trying To Be More Brazen ...

Hello all.

How are you this dreary and chilly Sunday?  I won't tell you that I've just had a message from my little brother (he who's emigrated to Sydney) who took great pleasure in telling me that he has been sunbathing in temperatures of 25 degrees and over.  You can go off people you know ...

Well, I've spent the last few days making felt flower brooches, partly to satisfy my thirst for colour, partly to sell on my stall at the school's Christmas Fayre.  In fact, I've gone a bit 'felt flower crazy' and made so many that I've listed a few in my poor, neglected Folksy shop just in case there are any lapels out there gagging for some cheer!


The novelty has worn off a little and I now feel the need for a lie down in a darkened room!!!

By the way, I was tickled pink with your response to my cheeky toilet picture so I've popped one of those in my Folksy shop too.  I feel a little bit of a fraud as it didn't exactly take much crafting but I've decided I've got to be more brazen and prolific otherwise I'll never make any money doing the things I love.


Isn't it funny?  I'm actually an outgoing and self-confident person but when it comes to selling things, I turn into a bit of a heap and HATE talking money.  Love spending it, just hate talking about it!!!

Anyway, this week I shall be having a break from sewing and putting my jools head back on - I've had some lovely necklace ideas.

I'm off now to catch up on a few of your blogs and then to browse the White Stuff website - handsome hubby has asked me to earmark a few things as ideas for my birthday in a couple of weeks ... wheehee!

  1. The brooches are lovely - gorgeous colours! You have been busy!! I know just what you mean about mentioning things for sale and your own shop - I feel exactly like that when I do it - but otherwise how does anyone know it's there? And how do you sell anything? Lucky you - my hubby took me to York two birthdays ago and we spent a small fortune in the White STuff shop - could fill my wardrobe with the stuff!! Have fun! x

  3. I am so like you when it comes to selling - I ABSOLUTELY hate it. But you should blow your own trumpet, your makes are lovely.xx

  4. What pretty brooches - very cheery!
    I love White Stuff - I could quite quickly spend rather a lot of money given free reign!

  5. Love the brooches! Poo to the weather your brother is having! I'm like you, terrible talking money with things I make. Would end up paying people to have them instead of asking for money!

    It's been an absolute age since I made any jewellery, but all today I have been thinking about getting it all out and starting it all up again. A good break does wonders!!!!!

    Have a super rest of a day!
