|My carpet so far|
But I felt very non-creative and hollow after a few months of "work" every day for the fair. But I hope to get going with my house again, sometime soon. And I might take up on an old project, my Fantasy-project. I hope I'll get a little push in the right direction from Jane, since she is sending me a swap-package later =)
And soon I'll get some swap-packages from Lisa and Jennifer, that might give me a ton of inspiration to continue my work =) And then I'll get a package from Irina too. How lucky am I?!
I was talking sledges. I'm a bit off season here, the snow melted away weeks ago but I started to think it would be nice to make a sledge, just like the one my daughter have. A Stiga cruiser =)
I made a red one for me, and my daughter saw it and wanted one for herself, so I made a blue one for her (her favourite colour right now) Then I just made two more, I was still in selling-mode I think ;)
I started making a pull-sting; red, white and blue, but then I remembered our string is just white, but on all pictures on Google they had red, white and blue strings.. Because it took me quite a long time to make this string, I might just have a simple white string on the rest..
I was very busy the week before the fair, this is what I made back then:
And last but not least a French bulldog. I was very uncertain about selling this one, you know me, I get very attached to my animals, and this one was very hard to sell, but it was a very nice girl that picked it up, so I hope it has a good life with her now =)

Soon I'll open my Etsy shop =) I'll let you know when. I just need to list a few more items and read the rules a bit better. I most say, I'm getting old and slow, new things are just hard to learn.... =)
I will try to sell one or two things now and then, but then I have to think about if this is what I want to do. I get very attached to things, and it might just not be worth it to stress and make things and sell. When I only make things for myself, I don't stress that much.. But I like when people like my things and wants them in their dollhouses, and I do like the extra money ;)
It's not as stressful to sell on the net, I don't have to have a lot of things ready at the same time, like I had to with the fair. But I hope to make it to another fair in the future, I'll just have to get a lot of time preparing for it, not 6 month like I had this time =)
Have a nice week and take care
