Counting the numbers

Well it has been a long time since i was in blog land. My excitement for getting a stall at the Daylesford Market and being featured in Thaw was soon over taken by a mammoth task that i took on. I am a book keeper, numbers is my thing. I was asked to take on some book work which resulted in all day Sunday stints, lots of very late nights and lots of why????? I won't go into all the details but it was a lot of hard work, everything else basically took a back seat.

I'm happy to say that i now have it under control and I finished everything just in time for the Daylesford Market last Saturday. I was very excited to have a stall however by the end of the day i was a little deflated. Sales were not so good. I think that i have a good thing because plenty of people said so but it just wasn't for them and i think it is more a 'summer' craft. i will not be deterred, etsy will hopefully find some homes for them (when i get around to listing them) and summer will come again. I do have a couple of retail outlets to investigate, so watch this space.

I am so happy to be back in blog land and will have to spend this weekend lying on the couch (did i mention that i now have a cold and a sore throat!) catching up on what everyone has been doing, while of course eating Easter eggs!


  1. Its all apart of the learning process... And with markets its hard to know who will buy what? Plus some people abit careful with their money. There were plenty of visitors to Daylesford Makers MArket, not sure if they were getting out their wallets? Better luck next time, dont be detterred!

  2. Hope the throat is better and that you got to snaffle loads of eggs. Mmmmmmmmm!

  3. I am trying to get in touch with you regarding the Sew It Together event. Could you please email me at ASAP. Thank you!
