My word art shapes just took off on `Not On The High Street` and the orders just grew in volume. By November I was very busy and into December it was manic. I was at the computer from early, 5-5.30 a.m ish to quite late often not finishing until 10.30 - 11.00.
I even did housework to take a computer break, sooooo not like me.
Now finally, I have stopped taking orders until next year and will be using the time to create new word art shapes. For any creative person, the new ideas being turned into reality, is the best part. I love thinking up new ideas and working out ways to put them into practice.
My crochet has rather taken a back seat this winter. I still do it as I find it very relaxing and love making things but now have a pile that need to be photographed and added to my shop. Ooops.
I was offering downloadable files on Etsy but it seems that there are new laws coming in to do with VAT that make the selling of digital files very complicated and almost impossible for a small business. So when my Etsy art shop opens it will only sell prints.
I will add some of my newer makes for you to see.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
It`s been so manic
no time for panic,
in short supply of sleep
the eyes could barely keep
focussed, awake and aware
to see if the screen was there.
Up long before the dawn
missing the coming of the morn.
Crawling late into bed
I think enuff`s been said.
It was crazy but fun
now I`m happy to be done.
Time to get Christmas ready
taking it nice and steady.
Last minute gifts, don`t look here
at last my order book is clear!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my new makes, they are very popular as personalised gifts.
Thanks for visiting, please come back soon.
