Time for a deep breath ...

I thought I would tell you what I have planned for the next year at least (this may explain my lack in posts recently as I have been busy doing this)... this week I am leaving my current job at the bank for a career break ! (deep breath) I have decided that I need to really go for it and as having a full time job is hindering my ability to make lots of items and actively keep up with sales, promoting myself and making a proper business out of 'Little Miss Crafty'.
So I feel the time is now, have a really good bash at it and see what happens, I have had lots of interest in my new ranges of stuff which I will post here in the next couple of days and due to the fact that I work in a big Jewellery area I have had lots of customers trying to give me advice and help which has been really nice.

Well it is very scary and very exciting at the same time... I just hope I can promote and sell enough stuff to make it work so I don't have to go back to the bank !!

Here are some wooden bangles I have made with my new designs, colourful and bright with some embellishments they are statement pieces so stand out all on their own and they always attract compliments.

I also have some pics here of a Valentine's swap (yes I did say Valentines swap as in february) that I did with Jennifer Chapin who has a great blog you should check out.. these are the lovely things she sent me..thanks Jen x
