As lots of my recent blogs have been about what I got up to on my jollies, I thought I should up-date you on what I’ve been doing now I’m back in the real world.....
Well, since we got back from the UK, I’ve been mostly working on things for my online shop. I know it’s been a long time coming (with holidays and work and other projects getting in the way), but I’m ALMOST ready to open the doors! I could have opened my little store earlier, but I wanted to have enough things in it to make browsing worthwhile, and to show some of the different things I like to make. I’ve never tried selling Crafted by Carly thingies online before, so I’m a bit nervous about the whole thing. But it’s also really exciting!
My latest makes for the shop have been these gadget pouches (which are perfectly iphone-sized):
I’ve also been making tags for all of the things I’ve made for the shop so far. It was so much fun – seriously! Making my tags involves so many of my favourite things: buttons, pretty papers, matching up colours, cutting and sticking..... They looked so happy and colourful sitting on my desk – I just HAD to arrange them in different patterns and take some photos:
I've been having fun between my merry making sessions, too! While we were at my parents in the summer, I ordered six back-issues of ‘Making’ magazine. Naughty, I know!!! I opened the package when we got home, and I have been enjoying a good read and visual feast every evening since then:
Six ‘Making’ mags in one go! Can you imagine what my ‘Projects to Try One Day’ list is looking like now?!?
I’ll keep you up-to-date with shop news - the ‘grand opening’ shouldn’t be too far away.....
And I’ll be sure to share any ‘Making’ projects I get around to trying!
