An Award

Lucky blessed me...has been bestowed with another blog award!!! It is so nice to know that someone reads my wafflings!!!
I have the beautiful and incredibly talented Belinda Saville of Bead Fetish to thank for this award. I love going to visit Belinda's blog...and seeing what she is up too...her seed bead work is inspiring and incredible...all the more so because of the short time she has been beading.
Thank you Belinda, you sweetie.
I am now to pass on this award to other deserved bloggers!!!

Toni Ransfield of Living with Kiwi's...for making me laugh and being my friend

Kim Cavender of Imagine Uncommon Things...for her constant inspiration...always

Little Steps...

Firstly...I apologise for my blog absence. Term one at school is always hell...so much to do, children to settle in, parents to help, mentoring staff...the list goes on and I wont bore you with the details. By the time I sit down of an evening...i am dozing off!

But... I digress.
I have been thinking about opening an Etsy store for some time now. My good friend Mel (lubs ya girl) is the one who planted the seed awhile back. Another friend, Toni Ransfield, has just opened an etsy store...go girl...selling her beautiful polymer clay flower canes and puffy hearts (I so adore both). So this has got me thinking again.!!!
Some of the questions and quandaries I have, are:
  • is my work original enough
  • is it eyecatching for people to be interested in buying?
  • would people want to buy/wear it!!?
  • what would I name my store
  • can I invest the necessarytime into this?

etc...etc...no no laughing!!! I am an insecure twit...I have these convo's with myself!!!

Any thought or advice so welcome!!!

Oh...and the little step...I actually registered on etsy...hehe. Well, I did say little!
