fingerless mittens and inspiration

by izabela

my last fair wasn’t the best for me money-wise

but lovely day and great event for meeting crafty people and friends

and chatting to potential customers

do you remember what i was making for the fair?

the mittens look fantastic in my opinion and they got loads of positive comments,

but didn’t sell any on the day

after the fair i got the order, from one of the ladies that saw them on my stall,

for TWO PAIRS!

yes two, so one of them is already posted as the other pair is in custom colors

 

 

 

fingerless mittens with a rose

sent to a customer

have got more colors to come 🙂

by the way

are you on pinterest?

some time ago i joined and since then find inspiration from other people’s finds

and it is so easy to share what you like

and nice that you can follow people with similar interests and taste as you

so if you like to get inspired and like to share and pin things for future use

this is the site for you

oh and i find this site’s interface as very very friendly 🙂

check my pinterests too (still building it)

>THOSE HAPPY MOMENTS…

by izabela

>on our lovely handmade Crafteroo forum we just talked – how happy we are craft wise (if I can say that this way)

na naszym bardzo milym i przyjaznym forum Crafteroo wlasnie rozmawialismy – jak bardzo czujemy sie zadowoleni (czy tez szczesliwi) jesli chodzi o tworzenie (kraftowanie – nie wiem czy tak moge to powiedziec)

and I have to say I am very happy, I can do what I want now, create, experiment, can make some of this and later some of those, I get bored I make totally different thing… this is me happy crafter and discoverer (or it is only my wishful thinking but I always wanted to call myself that name 😉 ), but is it enough for a crafter? because money wise is not worth it… people always will look for low price not high quality and I don`t get any profit from my creating (yet!) but going to exhibit at craft fairs and having on-line shops give enough money to buy more materials and tools and to make more and thanks that be happy 😉 so I am…

i musze powiedziec ze ja pod tym wzgledem czuje sie w pelni zadowolona, moge teraz robic to co lubie, tworzyc, eksperymentowac, troche zrobic tego, troche tamtego, jak sie znudze to zajme sie znowu czyms innym… to ja jestem – zadowolona z zycia krafterka i odkrywca (albo tak sobie tylko siebie nazywam bo zawsze sobie marze o odkrywaniu nowosci 😉 ), ale czy to wystarczy? bo jesli chodzi o pieniadze to tak naprawde totalni mi sie to nie oplaca… ludzie zawsze szukaja niskich cen a nie wysokiej jakosci i nie mam zadnego profitu z tego co robie (na razie!) ale jezdzenie na kiermasze i te sklepiki on-line daja mi przynajmniej te troche pieniazkow zeby kupic wiecej materialow i narzedzi zeby dalej tworzyc co cieszy mnie jeszcze bardziej i jestem szczesliwa…

and I just received another totally awesome email from my latest customer telling me how happy she was and this is it – I am so lucky because I get those lovely people buying from me and thanks those emails I know that some of things I created made someone else feel special… that makes me even more happy…

i wlasnie dostalam cudowny email od jednej z ostatnich moich klientek mowiacy jak bardzo jej pasuje to co kupila i jak bardzo si epodoba i w ogole… mam chyba jakies takie szczescie do klientow kupujacych ode mnie ze zawsze sa mili i zadowoleni i wysyalaja mi takie mile emaile ze przynajmniej wiem ze cos co stworzylam sprawia ze ktos czuje sie wyjatkowo… i to sprawia ze jestem jeszcze bardziej szczesliwa…

ok enough of this sweetness, let`s see what I was up to recently…

no ale dosyc tego slodzenia, zobaczmy co to sie ostatnio u mnie dzialo…

I am glad I went to Winchester but this time I didn`t sell much… well what do I expect that on such a lovely and hot day people will come and buy crochet items… anyway I met lovely new people and spent great day with Ania…

bardzo sie ciesze ze pojechalam do Winchester mimo ze tym razem za wiele nie sprzedalam… zreszta czego tu oczekiwac ze w taki upal ludzie przyjda i beda kupowac szydelkowe welniane rzeczy? ale za to poznalam pare nowych bardzo milych ludzi i spedzilam super dzien z Ania…

I do have great news to share as well…

mam dwie dobre wiadomosci do podzielenia sie…

First I finally I have left some of my jewellery to the local craft shop where I wish to have my little space… I was really afraid to do this and this is my debut (actually not quite, because ages ago my friend had a lovely little shop and she had some of my creations there, but this is different)

pierwsza dobra wiadomosc to w koncu zanioslam swoja bizuterie do lokalnego sklepu z artykulami do roznych sztuk rekodzielniczych (craft shop)… a bardzo sie tego obawialam i jest to moj debiut (no prawie, bo lata temu znajoma miala taki fajny maly sklepik i pare rzeczy moich tam wystawiala, ale to zupelnie cos innego)

and other news is I just started making a tutorial for a website (I will put a link when it is ready and published) for a Pencil Case and here is a little preview of it…

i nastepna dobra wiadomosc to wlasnie jestem w trakcie robienia tutorialu dla pewnej strony (dam link jak juz bedzie gotowy i opublikowany) na piornik szydelkowy a tutaj maly podglad…

and last night I got so crazy creative and made this: (soon it is going to listed in my new shop)

a wczoraj mialam napad szalonej tworczosci i wypocilam takie cos: (niedlugo wystawie do sklepu)

oh and one thing more – I have decided to set up a new etsy shop because people know me as Blue Fish Handmade I named my new shop this way and now it is going to be much easier for everyone to find me…

a i jeszcze jedno postanowilam zalozyc sobie nowy sklep ze wzgledu na nazwe, wszyscy znaja mnie tu jako Blue Fish Handmade (a stary sklep “jezzabell13” no nadalam ta nazwe nie myslac wcale) wiec bedzie teraz wszystkim latwiej mnie znalezc…

>SNEAKY PEEK AND IMPORTANT NEWS…

by izabela

>I just received a message that my neckwarmer was featured on Found Handmade blog with all the lovely chocolate items… check it here

wlasnie otrzymalam wiadomosc, ze moj szyjogrzej zostal wyrozniony na blogu Found Handmade razem z innymi slicznymi czekoladowymi rzeczami…

and I am being busy working mum and I don`t know when will I have the time to share everything I want with you readers and viewers of my site… not too soon, but sharing some things makes me feel better than not sharing anything, so the preview of my latest WIPs, the photos were taken in the night time so they are not too good and please forgive me that…

i jestem ostatnio tak zapracowana mamusia i nawet nie wiem kiedy bede miala wiecej czasu zeby podzielic sie z wami wszystkim co sie wokol mnie dzieje… ale napewno nie za szybko, zatem dziele sie tym czym moge, bo mysle, ze lepiej tak, niz wogole, oto wiec moje ostatnie prace “w trakcie”, zdjecia niestety nocne, wiec prosze o wybaczenie bo nie beda najlepszej jakosci…

and the bootees I recently made for my niece were absolutely hit I made two pairs one pair for home and one to the church where is not too hot inside…

buciki ktore ostatnio wydziergalam dla mojej siostrzenicy byly absolutnym hitem, zrbilam dwie pary – jedna po domu a druga do kosciola, w ktorym jak wiadomo za cieplo nie jest…

another fantastic news are: I will not only be at Handm@de Cambridge this year, I am going to be at Handm@de Winchester and Handm@de Oxford again… I am so happy as I think the places are fantastic to visit themselves but being there for such a reason is even better…

a z innych fantastycznych wiadomosci: nie tylko bede wystawiac moje dziergadelka na kiermaszu rekodziela w Cambridge w tym roku ale tez jade od Winchesteru i znow do Oxfordu… jestem przeszczesliwa bo miejsca sa urocze same w sobie do odwiedzenia a co dopiero jechac tak w takim celu – jeszcze lepiej…
