... and the Christmas hard sell marketing season continues!
Go buy my carp at Portobello West market this weekend. I'll be selling these ultra fine and dandy gemchip wire crochet cuffs and I have the birthstones chart with me too, so there's no excuses for not buying batty Aunt Susan (birthday 9th June, birthstone - moonstone) a nice wee gift for Xmas.

Christmas has started.
I'll let that sink in a little.
Christmas has started. pomo mama design (me) has just finished the first day of the first seasonal craft fair. Sales were reasonable, not stellar, and I chatted with some wonderful shoppers. It's a great way to meet people - who knew there we're so many expats in the Tri cities?
Tomorrow is a later start than this morning's 6.45am wake up. Maybe we'll have waffles for breakfast?
It snowed up on the mountain today - christmas is closer than you think :)

Somewhere, probably under a pile of other necklaces for labelling, lies this beauty. It's a delicate, airy little concoction of wire crochet with crystal chips, and strands of white quartz and sophisticated white porcelain beads. And it needs labelling for this weekend's craft fair.
Labelling is not my favourite job - I'd much rather be making the stuff than dealing with the administrative grunt work.
If I finish the grunt work on time, I'll post a photo of what utter chaos my studio looks today so you can commiserate with me (preferably in person at Archbishop Carney School this weekend?)

Who new these cute little flower pendants could be so versatile? Why not try them as hair accessories? Simply slide them off the cable necklace and onto a bobby pin, then afix them into your updo :)
PS: works well with Christmas stars too

New for Christmas, these wire crochet flower pendants measure approximately 2 inches diameter but are light and airy. Find them in gold or silver non-tarnish wire with copper or gold contrast stitching. Complete with steel cable necklace.

Opening night went really well, and I am sold out of Christmas stars. Not to worry - more will be arriving soon. I'll probably be making them during my shift in the shop on Sunday. See you then!
