So, I was sitting in the car the other day waiting for my husband Piers (it's usually the other way around) and came across this text message sent a few a weeks ago, using my phone, to Piers from my daughter Billie:
'In the car as mother has forgotten me as she talks to a friend just letting you know I love you one last time before I die of boredom ...' Teenagers!!
As an update to my last post, clearly I'm not the only one who has had critter issues, judging by your comments. Anvil Artifacts' squirrels sounded like they were bowling in her attic. Actually, it's entirely possible they were as I gather squirrels do like to bowl!
Chelsea's cat has taken control of a naughty possum at her parents house. I remember my in-laws had a resident possum in their garage for a little while, although all it seemed to do is sleep. Our possum has been very quiet lately, I hope it's okay. At the end of the day, much as it's a nuisance I agree with Lucie, it is kinda sweet.
Jewelry wise I've been on a bit of an earring and bangle kick lately.
A few of these pieces have already sold so I must be doing something right.
The white/pink bangle stack (top right) and copper wrapped set (bottom left) are in my madeit shop. This is a site for Australian artisans a little bit like, but nowhere near as sophisticated, as etsy. I thought I'd give it a try and am getting lots of views but no sales as yet. I know there was a huge kerfuffle when etsy switched it's default search to relevancy rather than recency, but personally I think it's better. madeit uses recency and this, together with the fact that it's tagging system is non-existent, means that you tend to get lots of looks when you first list and then it dies off to nothing as you drop off the first few pages. My media consultant (aka daughter Billie) encouraged me to try madeit. She's also helping me with my facebook page - an example of teenagers using their powers for good rather than evil.
I'm working on a wrist cuff at the moment. I haven't made one of these for ages as they are quite time intensive. But, it's cold and dreary here so sitting in front of the fire with my box of textiles and trims is quite appealing.
'til next time
