I can’t believe it has been a month since my last post! Or Helfa Gelf for that matter!

Time just seems to be flying by, Christmas is a busy time of year for any crafter. How do you manage your time? Do you have an app, a trusty pen and paper or another method of keeping yourself organised? Personally I am a prolific list writer. I have lists upon lists for everything. But I find this method works better for me than apps on my phone or laptop. Although saying that the calendar on my phone is a lifesaver. If I didn’t have that I wouldn’t know what I was doing when …

So, what have I been up to? Well there have been the usual craft fairs and of course the last weekend of Helfa Gelf (More psycho gingerbread men). There have been new makes and commissions. My favourite new make is a set of mix n match Christmas Studs. The idea is that you pick two studs and call them a pair (whether they match or not lol). I’m thinking of maybe enamelling a couple of them to add a splash of colour? What do you think? Would you like to see Rudolph’s nose red? Pics are below ….

I’ve also update the store with all my Christmas makes. So that is that job done! Once the Christmas stock is gone, it’s gone (apart from the studs – I may be persuaded to make more). I’m pretty please with the selection I have this year. I seem to have something for all ages.

I’m booked in this month to have a stall at the Daniel Owen Centre which is supporting the Alzheimer’s charity. I’m also booked in on the 1st November at the Coconut Shy Vintage & Artisan fair in Whitchurch which looks like it is going to be a good day.

I’ve also been given a couple of commissions to make some really nice jewellery, not that my normal range isn’t nice but these are extra special using some really nice metals and stones. Can’t wait to get started on them. If it’s ok with the buyers then I will post pictures as I go.

And that as they say is about it for this post … will post again after the fair on Saturday to show you how it’s gone ….
