Crochet Flower BeanBag Via Marks & Spencer

Yesterday I got to go to Manchester to see my sister! It was a nice well overdue trip! It's made me miss home quite a bit though! Fingers crossed I'll be able to get the time off work so i can go home! :) I got myself a cheeky little Cath Kidston shopping bag - it was only a FIVER! bargain! I couldn't resist, and a few more little bits to make jewellery from! I shall post when I've made and taken some piccies! Thats all for today! Enjoy!

Etsy Inspiration!

So as I've probably mentioned I'm pretty poor atm! So shopping is off the cards! However...noone said anything about window shopping! If I'm ever stuck for inspiration I think Etsy is the best place to head! So technically I'm doing uni work too ;-)

Lately I've learned patience is a virtue! Something is finally starting to happen with my business! I've learnt I really just need to stick with it and have faith! I've sold a fair amount of stuff this week (which is good cos I'm plummeting into my overdraft!) And hopefully with time it will grow and grow! I'm SO looking forward to summer to have a nice break and make stuff I actually want, I have a ton of stuff planned and I'm excited to get making and adding new lines to the Violet Squirrel Items!

This is just a sneak at some of the things to come when I have more spare time! 

Thats all for now! xoxo

Sorry for being Quiet!

So I'm slowing down on the blogging! Initially this was because I'd bored you all to death posting the same pictures of stuff I was selling on ebay, but now it's gone severly down hill! I'm trying to resolve this! I'm on top of my work a bit more now (not fully!) so I'm getting a teeeeny bit of spare time now! The stuff I've put on ebay is selling quite well atm! It's given me a bit more optimism with 'the business' and I've learnt I deffo need more patience! A couple of other things are going up for sale this weekend I should think! I'll post some piccies in a sec! Sadly the photo frames and vintage fabric pieces aren't going to be on sale online for quite a while as its stock for my business elective stall! So you can either pop down to our stall (date to be announced) or be nice and patient and I'll whack up whats leftover after we've done it :-)
