Yay! little poppits has a Misi shop

Featured

I’ve finally come out of my dusty mole hole and seen the light! my shop is ready, yay! The only down side is I can’t sell outside of the UK as my Insurance doesn’t cover it, but I’m looking into how to change that.

For those of you who don’t know, I recently had a craft fair, how did it go? Well let’s just say not good, it was dead as a dodo and I nearly shot myself!

But wait, something amazing did come out of it! I got a commission from a gorgeous retro ice cream van business to make some flower and ice cream garlands, how chuffed am I! I also met a whole bunch of gorgeous people. Of course my poppits cheerfully ran around spending their wonga on all the other stalls and my Aimee was very much attracted to the puppet stall! you’ll see what she picked up in my gallery! (enough said!)

That’s why I’ve been off the blogging radar for so long, in my dusty mole hole creating beautiful stuff (so it’s not all bad!)

For my on-line shop I decided to go with Misi, it was very easy to set up. It costs just 20p to list an item and they take 3% commission which, for my first baby steps is perfect. I did have a bit of trouble adding my photos, they had to be under 1mb, but the hubster sorted it by simply adjusting my phone so it only takes photos under this now, genius!

Ahh yes, speaking of the hubby has he been any more supportive yet, hmm in a word no! The grapevine has it he was heard telling Josh ” if your mum makes £50 I’ll eat my hat and a mouldy sandwich!”, aint love grand!

But I’m gonna show him, these might be baby steps now but for sure my millions are coming, ok so maybe just enough to get that big mac but who’s counting!

love and hugs Teresa ♥

yikes I finished my bag in time for the made it monthly challenge over at the gorgeous woolhogs by the skin of my teeth!

It’s a sort of combination of lots of things I’ve spied in books and magazines and I love it. I’m trying to make enough stock to start an online shop so I’m a bit of a dusty mole surrounded by yarn and crochet hooks, with a pink bow on my head of course!

recently my beloved hubby told me I would never make enough money for all my time, but that has just made me all the more determined, so watch this mole hole!

ps I can’t wait to tell you about a gorgeous package I received from knitexpressions and heaps of yummy awards to share too!

love and hugs Teresa ♥ (aka dusty mole!)

It was love at first sight when I clapped my eyes on this cute retro sideboard! It just needed a bit of granny chic charm, how could I resist! A quick lick of paint and a sweet retro fabric lining later and here it is packed with all my goodies!

pretty daisy chain necklace

I am like a magpie when it comes to flowers and diamonds, and as flowers are cheaper I’m always covered in tons of them! So when I was thinking of ideas to enter woolhogs made it monthly challenge, flowers were on my mind,  just a little!

What can be cuter than this super cute daisy chain necklace, the daisies are attached to a simple crochet chain and fastened with a button. I love it and can currently be found day-dreaming of meadows filled with buttercups and daisies!
