I use Majaba a lot to track my views and hearts. It's a really nifty tool. But, really, the reason why I am loving Majaba a lot right now is because it has introduced me to Swoon - I heart swoon for lots of reasons - the gorgeous retro pants and camisoles, the fact that she is based in Inverness, the sheer deliciousness of their prints and designs. I just heart it all. I have never bought any clothes from Etsy before, but swoon has got me all tempted....

I'm so excited!!

Just a teeny post to celebrate my first sale on Pinkie Pixie!! Some lovely nice person bought 8, count 'em, 8 pendants!! All of my monster pendants are now gone, so I'll have to make some more. I'm sooooo pleased it's not true - first sale in my new store, and hopefully a sign of successes ahead!!

I'm not neglecting Moose and Bear though - new products being listed this weekend as soon as I get home. Work work work!!

Technology Free Zone!

I'm a bit of a technology-free zone at the moment. The reason is that I'm currently back at my family home in Belfast, looking after my mum who's having some back problems. She's getting much better, but just the way things are, I don't have half the amount of time to spend playing around online. That means, far less twitter, far less etsy-playing, far less internet in general. Instead, I've been working on my new scrabble tile pendants, and experimenting with what works well with them, and making up some crochet cakes for listing over the weekend. Do I miss the internet? Well, of course. It's a pretty much vital part of my little crafty business. Pls, right now, business hasn't been one hundred per cent booming, probably due to my lack of onlininess. However, productivity is up up up!!!

Sooo, these are my new scrabble tiles. I've made some of them using Japanese paper, but most are from old postcards from my rather embarassingly giant collection. I'm pretty glad that I've found a use for them. They've been sitting in a box in my flat for about 6 years waiting for me to say "yes! let's cut them up and stick them on stuff!". And now I have. Fabulous. They are available at my new store - Pinkie Pixie.

I'm a little conflicted about the tiles. On one hand, I think that they are totally goregous, and can definitely see them selling in local craft fairs as well as online. On the other hand, the Etsy community seems to have a weird relationship with them. They sell reasonably well, but they are a big trend there, and maybe I've lept on the bandwagon? But what is wrong with making what you like?
