On A Fringe

I have been toying with the idea of getting my hair cut. Complete with a fringe.

You see, I wear my home-cut hair all tied back into a bun all my waking hours. Sometimes it hurts. And lately, I noticed that the front spot at my hairline has begun to thin. Yes, very scary. But the thing is: I hate having a fringe. It feels like there's a small animal sitting on my forehead all the time, plus I look like a complete dork.

So what's a woman to do? I think I should get it done. Coz, really, the choices are: Bald Spot vs Complete Dork. Bald Spot could prove permanent. Whilst Complete Dork I can grow out of. :)

Happy Day!

Seeing as I was unable to wish everyone "Happy Monday!" yesterday... On a similar note, my leap into doing fairs has proved exhilarating. Yesterday's fair was good fun, with many friends turning to help and to support. Made a reasonable amount of sales, and got to experience the nitty-gritty of setting up, selling and packing up. What was particularly cool was getting to meet some of my regular online customers. It was absolutely lovely to put faces to Etsy usernames. Thank you, guys, so much for your continued support of my art! So I am off now to the worktable, with a few ring alterations, and a pair of Sunburst earrings to custom up. Fair pics shall be up soon. :)

Dry Run

Yesterday, I have had to do a mock-up of my table display in preparation of the Fair coming Monday, so I know exactly what I need. Seems like enough stuff to hawk for a day.

Plus I've been bonkers-busy with crafting up more Nouveau Solitaires with Swarovski pearls, for the Fair, from which 50% of proceeds will go the Red Cross' relief effort in Japan.

The weather is a tad dismal today. I was planning to photograph some of the new stuff that will be at the Fair. I guess Sneak Peeks will have to wait until tomorrow.

Happy Monday!

The school holidays are here, and yep, I have significantly less me-time as a result. Which translates into slightly less leisurely pace at housework, and practically no stretch of time at the worktable, as Fair day draws near. Oh well. :)

Welts, Pricks and Calluses

All from all the wirework I have been doing. Plus cooking and washing doesn't help one bit.

It wouldn't be right to have a close-up of my "injuries", so here's an inspirational instead.

And with that, I am off to finish hanging out the clothes, wash the dishes from breakfast, and go back to being welted, pricked and callused.

Spring Affair at The Marriott

I've just signed up for a table at the Spring Affair at The Marriott, on March 28th. It's sort of like an elite shopping destination for mainly the expat housewife (thus the weekday slot), with a congregation of merchants with rather exclusive and/or unique stuff.

I met up with the organisers yesterday, who were rather awed at the fact that I actually sit at home and craft up these pieces of jewelry. I suppose all the others are buying-and-selling, a lot of them expat housewives with an entrepreneurial itch. Most of them bring in stuff from their own home countries. So it makes a really interesting look-see even if you're not out to buy.

So, until then, I shall be crafting feverishly. There will be lots of new rings, bangles and earrings (both Chic and Uniques and Klimts), so do try and drop by to have a look, and to say 'Hello!". :)
