my new crafty friend Sally Leach and I spent a lovely day out in London on Sunday & went to Top Drawer (the trade show at Earls Court)....
we thought we'd go to have a cheeky little nosey at some nice things!
we also needed a boost of inspiration, and motivation to start our 2011 off with a bang... and boy did we get it!
so many bright colours, and images filled our heads for the afternoon,
and loads of really great info from Wayne Knight at the seminar we went to about Social Shopping and e-commerce...
(loads better than the Mary Portas one - that wasn't actually her, and was just an advert for her course - by a woman who didn't seem to know what she was talking about!! grr!)
listening to the seminar (and nearly falling asleep - it was warm & i was tired ok, i was not bored!) made me realise i so need to blog more, to keep all of my customers and fans in the loop a lot more :) and in turn it will motivate me to keep going, and not lose confidence in what i love to do!
i have been dreaming up some lovely new products and colour ranges, but its actually getting around to making them a reality that i'm struggling with at the moment!
one thing i have managed to do though, is take some new photos of my handmade button jewellery, on a purple hand that i bought from a local shop for my craft fair display.... i'd love to know what you think :)
