However, if I see a moth in that dark, dingy room, I'm out of there like the proverbial bat out of hell! Just thought I'd make that clear from the start... OK then... As long as we're all clear on that...
The business clings I briefly mentioned in my last post (remember that far back!!) have been getting a lot of attention and I have two more going in the post today - one is a smaller version of this one
The other is lettering for an office to display the company logo and name on the office window and will give the effect of hand painted letters on the glass. I'll post a photo of this when I can - the customer has promised to send me a picture when it is in place so hopefully that will show the effect really well.
If you are interested in getting your own company logo or message on a cling that can be used to promote your business whilst you are out and about, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org including the logo you would like to use and I will get back to you with a quote.
I am, of course, also building up more stock for my fairs which really start again in earnest in a couple of weeks time. Its always difficult to judge what your best sellers are going to be when you are at the start of a new year so I am trying to work on some new designs as well as the classic favourites like butterflies, animals and birds. Here's a sneak peak of a couple of new designs (these aren't even on my website yet but contact me if you are interested in any of them)
|Set of 3 flowers - yellow & white|
|and really effective in monochrome!|
|Rainbow worms? Well why not?|
I'm trying to create more sets of designs as many customers want more than one at a time and having sets makes it a little easier and more affordable. This certainly proved true with the small butterfly sets I have already - the butterflies are of a size that to sell them individually would not be cost effective but as a set, I can ensure they remain affordable and still make sense from a business point of view.
|Set of 7 butterflies|
|Set of 3 Glitter butterflies|
One of the things I love so much about my work is that I can adapt to customer requirements, current fads & trends. I don't have the problem of having to order 100s of the same item, mass manufactured & each exactly the same!
Tell me, where would this customer have been able to get a picture of her gorgeous Malamute with one ear in the shops??
|Brown and White Malamute with one ear|
So, just try telling me that buying handmade isn't the best thing ever!
Just as an extra note before I go, I have a Facebook page. Now, I'm pretty good at all things computers but seriously - I just don't get it!! I haven't a clue how to 'like' other pages, what to do when someone 'likes' mine and to be honest it is not only a miracle that it is still there and I have resisted hitting that oh so tempting 'deactivate page' link but actually that it is there at all! I hear loads of people saying how much they love Facebook but sorry folks. I don't get it!!
If you do get it... feel free to visit, like, post, share, comment and whatever else you are supposed to do on there - just don't expect me to be displaying all those flashy whizzgigs that some pages have - if I manage to add anything it is a cause of celebration so make the most of what is there & perhaps head over to my website or follow me on Twitter - I am pretty efficient on those!!
