Rewind to way back last April: I’d just ordered a beginners’ beading set, and in only my second post in this blog’s latest incarnation waxed lyrical on the joys of making things with my hands (as opposed to writing!). I hadn’t created anything tangible in years and I hoped that taking up a new craft might help relieve my “creative constipation”.
Fast forward 10 months, and this is still only my 19th post, while my authorly “career” moves as sluggishly as ever.
But more importantly, less than a year after taking delivery of that “cheap and cheerful” beading set, I am now the proud proprietor of my very own handmade jewellery shop on Etsy, with a whole 21 sales since August (which according to EtsyRank is enough to put me in the top 40% of 1.4 million sellers – woohoo!).
If you want to see what I’ve been up to, here are a just a few of my latest additions:
