I've sold something at last. Thanks to Dreamaid.
Dreamaid is a where people can put they wares to sell, so I did. Tonight it was featured on BBC 2 programme with Theo from Dragons Den. As a result I've had 7 sales. So cool. By glancing at the chat forums it looks as if lots of people have done well.
Just putting a few more things on for tomorrow then to bed.
Can't stop grinning.

SJJewellery on dreamaid.com

SJJewellery on dreamaid.com

I have a new shop. this one is a bit different. Everything is free to list and when you sell something a percentage is taken off. It is also going to be on the BBC tomorrow so hopefully it will increase it's followers.

New make.

Again this is one folksy. Link at the top.
Just got in from work. Was hoping for a bit of a lie in today. Was meant to be at work just this afternoon, but at 7.50 got a call from the school asking if I could do the morning as well. Which was fine, except I was still bed. Had to run round like a loony to get ready.
My birthday is more or less sorted out. It is the big 30 this June. Going to have a BBQ/camp/party at my Dads. Just need to sent the invite out. x

Lazy Sunday.

These kits were Johns item, thought I would start by making earring first and see how it goes. I have printed up some instructions and they have enough beads in them to make 2 pairs, with extra so people can make their own designs.

Was going to do some more jewellery making today, but yesterday I went and brought the wrong wire. So going to the garden centre instead. John has this thing at the moment about fruit bushes so it growing them in little pots around the garden and he wants another one. Me I just like going to a ride out and a coffee (we don't have any in the house at the moment ran out). Might nip to Dad and Grandma's as it is near by.
Did ok at the car boot yesterday, though not as good as the first time round. Was pleased as I sold 3 items of jewellery. Though I did manage to brake my display unit. I have posted some more of my stuff on Folksy.

More memory bracelets


Still making the memory bracelets. Not too sure about the top one, was trying to go for a rainbow. I like the purple, might keep that one for myself. I also like the sparkly green.

Memory bracelets

All bracelets are on sale at http://www.folksy.com/shops/sjjewellery

I have been having a go at making Memory wire bracelets. I think I like the red best. Going to a car boot sale tomorrow, so it is an early start for me. Hopefully the weather will be good. Going to take some of my jewellery with me and see if it sells.

Vivien Holloway

I have been after a Vivien Holloway dress for ages. Been searching on Ebay but they are really expensive. Found this one today and got it. I only hope it fits. It isn't quite the colour or fabric I was after, but never mind, if it is rubbish I can always resell it.

Jewellery and tyres.

It is going to be a rather expensive week for me this week. I needed 3 new tyres and my MOT is due. But on the plus side I have my first proper fete this weekend on Saturday. It is nothing to do with craft shows, but a local high school fete. I'm hoping there will be no other jewellery stalls just me. I'm also trying out different thing. Because I can have a gazebo, it means I have more space. So have been experimenting with candles and lucky dips and make your own earrings. Hopefully will make a bit of money, not sure it will cover the cost of tyres and MOT though.
Also trying to think of some idea what to do for my birthday. It is my big 30 and want it to be special. I would like to go camping. Though not sure whether to do campsite with swimming pool or back to natural campsite. Oddly they both cost the same amount.
