A Big Thank You – to all those who’ve commented on my previous posts.
CARDS OF THE MOMENT:
I’ve been lucky to have a variety of the cards I’ve created chosen as “Image of the Moment” by several of the designers on craftsUprint – but I do have to admit that I don’t always remember to blog about them or to thank each designer individually. So now I’d like to say a big thank you to each and every designer who’s chosen any of my creations uploaded to CUP as their “Image of the Moment” at any point this year.
I’ve currently, (at the time of writing this during the evening of Tuesday, 12th June, 2012,) got three cards chosen as their “Image of the Moment” by the respective designers who’s design work I used when making the cards. Of course the designers may have got a different “Image of the Moment” by the time this is posted to my blog or you actually get to read it, but I’d like to say “thank you designers”.
Here are the designers who’ve currently got my cards as their “Image of the Moment”, together with the card they’ve chosen.
- Designer – Jacqueline Hatton; Card – A4 Background Papers: yellows and blues
- Designer – Clive Couter; Card – FLOWER POT CARD
- Designer – Ammie Sanders; Card – Quick Pyramid Sheet 6
It’s been a while since my niece and I worked together on a website to show off our crafting – years in fact – and back then, when I was still working, we concentrated on our cardmaking, even though we did bits of cross-stitch and other crafts as well. The old site can be seen -> here.
In any case, now that I’ve had to retire because of my health and disability problems, and now that I’ve got more time to play around with more of the crafts I enjoy, I thought it was time to build a new website to show more variety of crafted items. It isn’t going to be something that’s updated as regularly as this blog, but hold more galleries of stuff as a reminder, including things like the wedding stationery I made for my sister’s wedding a few years back and the various samples I made ahead of time to work out what she wanted.
It isn’t nearly finished yet, and I’ve got all the early stuff to transfer to the new site before I close down the old site, but if anybody wants to have a look then it can be found here ->
I’ve put a bit of time aside to upload a few more items to my online shop the last couple of days. I’ve got lots more to add but it takes time, so I’m trying to do small batches of assorted items as often as I can to build up my stock while there’s free listing. Not sold anything yet though in the six weeks or so that the craftybob.com marketplace has been live.
Here are the items I’ve uploaded to my shop on craftybob.com since my last blog post:
- Welsh Rugby Card
- Cow and Calf Card
- Black Sparkly Knitted Evening Bag
- Blue Bead Keyring / Bag Charm
- Red, White and Blue Necklace
- Red, White and Blue Bracelet
- Funky, Multi-coloured Bracelet
- Funky, Multi-coloured Earrings
- Red, White and Blue Keyring
- Blue Glass Jewellery Set
