Shoes. ... really ..

Not sure exactly what to say about these shoes ... 
The concept of the first one a kind of cool

These, I just don't know what to say about them... pointless, painful ... and what does it do to your shins ....

Mooching Around Etsy Again ...

Look what products I found on Etsy, vintage inspired handmade bridal pieces. These are handmade in San Francisco, California, by 2 lovely ladies.

They use vintage pieces and new elements to build the necklaces. There are all sorts of Czech crystals, swarovski crystals, vintage jewels and all sorts of other shiny components.

You can purchase them on their Etsy webshop via this link

Brass Boheme

And these are some of their combs and clips that they make. Wonderful. Get shopping!!!

I have been making ...

Have made a few hair clips / brooches today.
They have a setting in the back for both so you can wear as either.

As you can see from the second photo I usually sell these for £10 but I think I may have a bit of an online sale before I take them to a craft fair.

These can be purchased at shcreations

Just Found An Amazing Jewellery Shop ....

Just wandering through Etsy and have found some of the most amazing amd colourful gold and platinum jewellery that I have ever seen.
I have heard of rose gold but these colours are magnificent, what does everybody think? Would you buy one of these pieces?

I want to buy one for each finger, or maybe for everyday of the year.

These pieces are all available from a seller on Etsy, here's the link.

Decluttering to make a study /studio

Finally, I have cleared out the spare room so I can turn it into a studio / study and get back to my handmaking business. Did the last bits today, I want to decorate but for now, at least I have adesk and can see the floor. Here are some before and after pictures ...

Before .....

After ....

And now you can see the floor, I have a desk that was very well hidden, and cupboards!!!!

Some of the stuff I found as I was clearing out ...
An old 50p coin dated 1969

£15 in cash

This beautiful handmade paper rose that I had forgotten about.

And, the toilet roll coloured in with fluorescent pen. This was created by my sales and marketing team in my old job when our factory could not produce 'natural' shade toilet roll. They wanted to cheer me up as Supply Chain were having a bad year ....

What's New With SHCreations and Hebdens Handmades

Well, just a quick round up really ...

I have recently discovered Tsu, the social networking site that pays you to post, yup, that's right folks, you get paid!!! So, I have been building my profiles on this site and working out how best to use it. I have been on there for aroun 6-7 weeks now and it is going well ... ok, I post a lot and earn 30cents a day ( yes, the site in USD). But, it is a really fun site, none of the cyber bullying you get on other sites, everybody just helping each other to make a few pennies here and there. You can also donate them to charities that are registered with them, so you can post to just donate as well.

I have linked my Hebdens Handmades profile on there to my Facebook page SHCreations. There will be links to all of these scattered around the edge of my post.

My grand plan is to spend time blogging about handmade stuff, whether it be my own or some other fabulous sellers I have found online. Posting the majority on Tsu and extending my reach to help support the handcraft industry, with a few posts landing on my Facebook Page. People seem to enjoy lots of posts on Tsu, but Facebook seems to make people irrate when they see too many.

Anyway, expect to see more blogging from me again, and feel free to use my invite to join Tsu, it is invite only, but you will understand why once you understand the monetisation process. So it is not an exclusive club!!!  But I recommend you get in early as you will miss out on having "children" on there which brings in more money for you. Here are some of the posters they use to explain it.

My Tsu

Well, happy handmaking and hope to read you all soon!
