Loving my new 'job' - Lots of Christmas makes!

Well, last week I was asked by a friend if I wanted to set up a stall at her work Christmas fete.  I have often wondered about venturing into the world of craft fairs, but have never had the confidence.  Seeing as this was just £5 entrance, I figured it would be a wonderful learning experience and said yes!

The fete is on Saturday 15th December, and as usual I have a zillion and one ideas, but not enough time to try them all.  I am having to be really strict with myself and set small tasks that must be completed before I start something new.  I have a bad habit of starting something, and then abandoning it when I get a new idea.

The aim is to select some of my key jewellery items (such as my Tree of Life pendants) and then focus on them and paper crafts.  This week is dedicated to making tags, gift bags, boxes and cute decorations to sell. I am also having to go out and Nurse, so trying to balance this new business with the existing one is proving a bit tricky!

Here is a sneaky peek at todays makes!

The cute thing about these is that the belt is removable and actually works to keep the whole thing closed and secure.  I may be a little biased, but I know that if I saw these in a shop, I would definitely be buying!
