Busy, Busy, Busy Bee!

I have been sooooo busy the past few days! Nothing exciting to report but thought I would do a quick check in. No picture either so instead here is a picture of one of my dogs ~ Betty the chihuahua! She weights in a 6lb and is 3 years old!

Photos & Demos!

I was pleased with how my ebay photos turned out! I have to admit that I am no David Bailey and so was quite immpressed with these!

These East of India Ribbons are great - the Union Jack hearts are so simple to make using felt, ribbon, thread and a single button!

Can you see the lovely Radio Gram biscuit tin peeping from the corner ~ my daughter bought it for me from M&S.

A Very Busy Start to the New Year!

Wow! My little felt shop, opened in late November 2009 has been so, so busy! Even after the Christmas rush the customers are still coming ~ I am so pleased!

One of the reason I started my little shop was to give myself an outlet. I have a progressive Muscle wasting disease and do not work but and like to keep as busy as my energy levels allow! Quite recently I was also diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which in my case is not as bad as it can be! I have mainly highs ~ think of the Queen song "Don't Stop Me Now (I'm Having Such a Good time)!", and you get a hint of how good I can feel! Unfortunately bipolar and muscular dystrophy are not compatible! I tire easily but the bipolar gives me energy I simply do not have = a tendency to fall over!! My internet shops have allowed me to be busy in a safe and structured way, I can channel all my energy into organising my shops The Felt Fairy and My Ebay Shop and at the same time indulge in my creative desires!

Wishing you all a wonderful and happy New Year! I am so looking forward to a creative 2010! x~X~x


I am now only using my felt fairy blog!
