The past week has been a busy one! Our eldest son has been away on school camp and his brother was lost without him, requiring lots of afterschool games from us - great fun, but jewellery had to take a back seat until after bed time meaning a few late nights this week getting ready for the upcoming Hohepa Market.
Local Etsy Get-Together... Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining the Etsy HB group's monthly meeting held at Bay Espresso Café between Napier and Hastings. There were several of us 'newbies' and it was lovely to meet the creative people behind the shop names, a couple of which I've met on-line
via Felt and Facebook too! With wide and diverse interests including textile art/clothing, knitted goods, printwork, felt art, jewellery, there was much to talk about and learn. Of course, even though we differ in our chosen creative paths, there was much commonality too - on-line selling, blogs, customer service, packaging and freight options to name a few. It was a very informative and fun meeting and I look forward to future
get-togethers, maybe even a road-trip to the next Craft 2.0!
