With all this publicity I was hoping to have my own on line shop up an running to sell my wares. But I'm not quite there yet. You can see what I have been doing so far in my craft folder on flickr. I have recently gone back to crafting and portraiture and it may take a while to build up my business. My plan is to donate a percentage of sales to the Bridge community Garden and Sacred Heart School growing project. I took a huge cut in pay to work at the Bridge community garden but the wonderful people I met and the amazing transformations I saw in lives in that garden made it all worthwhile. I am so frustrated seeing gardening projects struggling because of lack of funds when they are so very much needed. Lives become enriched, friendships are formed, people are healed.
If you are visiting my blog as a result of viewing the article, "hello!". I hope you enjoy my photos. Please "like" me on facebook, share and follow as it may help me with funding applications.
I mentioned thrifting and upcycling in my piece and said I had just made some roses out of an old pair of pyjamas, a jumper and some fabric scraps. Here are the results. Really easy to do with a hot glue gun! I can't afford to buy flowers and the ones my mum bought me are quickly deteriorating (though I quite like them in their dying state) - these ones will last me all through winter.
