Being Crafty

I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend at Moonfleet Manor. A beautiful family hotel in Dorset. I had lots of kiddie-free time, a facial, champagne, a yummy dinner, goodies and lots of relaxation. I can thoroughly recommend it! (they have a creche and lots of baby sitters!!!). I love my three boys but even I need a break!

I've been busy doing a few custom orders. Such as this bag charm. I really like making the bag charms - I get a real sense of satisfaction. Funny thing is I don't actually have any on my own bag! Silly really as it is a good way to advertise!

Speaking of promoting oneself - I recently took part in The Little Book of MISI. A great idea of Amy of Art by Mimi. She has very kindly put some crafty giveaways together to hand out at craft fairs with samples of work and business cards - primarily to promote MISI shops.

It's a bit similar to the Get Eurofied boxes I wrote about in my last blog but on a smaller scale. A big thank you is due to Amy who has done this all off her own back. She is about to embark on the 2nd Book of MISI.

I'm trying to be organised so I've started to make a few promotional items so I have stuff ready to go when these promotional opportunities arise! I just made this bunch of mini charms which I'll put in little Organza Bags and attach to my new Moo cards!

I made an extra little charm for a friend who is a hairdresser - hope she likes it!

I'm really pleased with my Moo cards and can thoroughly recommend them. People really seem to like them when you hand them one. I got the mini ones and some
stickers too!

I finally got round to immortalising my children's fingerprints in Silver. I'm still trying to perfect the art of using Silver Clay but hopefully will get there eventually.

That's all for now Folks! See you on Facebook, Twitter & Flickr!

p.s. I am thinking of having a giveaway on my next blog! Watch this space! Jo x
