Handmade Monday rolls around again and I am pleased to say that hubby and I survived the 'Greenhouse' yesterday and came out unscathed! It was very, very hot still but there were more clouds around so this helped it to not be quite as unbearable as it was there last month. I am fully booked for all the weekends in August (plus Bank Holiday Monday) so I won't be back there until the end of September which means the temperature should be much more pleasant (keep an eye out for 'it was so cold' posts!!)
As a result of the more comfortable atmosphere, we had a great day and met some wonderful new and regular customers. However, after being really pleased to have completely finished all my orders, I now have five pages of orders to complete this week!! I love the fact that as a maker of handmade work, I can adapt colours and designs to suit a customer's specific needs - OK, they may cost a little more than mass produced stuff but you simply don't get this personal detail on factory made, shop bought items.
Last week I mentioned the Glow in the Dark stuff I have been making in readiness for Halloween (which, bearing in mind it is August already will be here quicker than I care to think about!!). These are now available in my online shop and I have shown a couple of them here (click on link below each photo to be taken to the shop page for each one):
This is going to be a very short post as I have tons of orders to get started on plus lots of stock to try to make up ready for the Lingfield Steam & Country Show this coming weekend. I guess this week is also going to be full of making steam engines...
Head on over to 1st Unique Gifts blog to see what everyone else has been up to this week & have a great one yourself.
