Gosh it's been a busy week, I wish I could blog more regularly and I mean to then I forget and go off and do something else!!
Ah well it does mean when I do a round up I have plenty to chat about!!
As I said in my last post I went to a Trade fair last Sunday to look for new products for Notorious Kitsch. I love seeing what new things suppliers are coming up with and am always excited at the prospect of new stock, it's kinda nice because it's like you can go shopping but it's not costing you anything because you're selling it on!
One of our popular suppliers is Anne Taintor, I love her stuff, it's cute and quirky. They have some really cute new things coming out so I thought I'd give you a little preview with this little pic from the catalogue!
Not sure about the soap cos it works out really expensive but the mini tissue box and nail files are very cute!
So I went on Sunday, then on Monday I went back to help my good friend Sue from Pennychoo on her stand. This is the first big Trade Show she's done so it was a big deal, it's hard to do this kind of thing on your own, after all you have to go to the loo at some point and it could be when the biggest card retailer passes your stand!
I love this new range she's designed, it was inspired by a cat vase we have in our house by our front door, I had no idea she'd done this range and when I said it's fab, she said oh it was your vase that inspired it!
Here's Sue making sure she has her orders sorted!! She'll kill me for posting this, she hates having her picture taking!
I'm so pleased for her, she did pretty well, lots of people loved her designs and she got interest - and orders - from some pretty great companies, so watch out for her designs on the high street soon!
Ok so that was Sunday and Monday!
Tuesday and Thursday I went and worked for someone else part time, as I said this is my year of getting some debt paid down so I need to do some work for people to earn some extra cash. It's very strange doing work for other people when you've worked only for yourself for over 2 years, but if it's going to help then it's all good!
I'm on a no buying ban at the moment, obviously if I'm trying to pay debts down, no point spending money! But, I bought something to continue to sort my sewing area out. I bought this little spool holder
Handy huh? But what's funny is it holds 32 spools of thread, and I thought oh great that means I'll have some spare, mmmm I clearly didn't realise how many supplies I already had, let's just say I need another holder and leave it at that!
Today, Saturday, I decided I would do a blog post, tidy the house a little and then sew, yeah! Not quite sure what I'm going to sew today, I'm in a bit of a quandry about it all. I keep not sewing clothes until I lose some weight but I need some new things now at the weight I am as most of my vintage stuff doesn't fit right now, so really I should get on with it and sew myself some things to wear now!
Anyway, we'll see, no doubt I'll do a post to let you see what I decided to sew in the end
Oh and big news I'm nearly at 200 followers, wow how did that happen, when it does I'll finally get round to doing a giveaway! mmmm now have to think about what!
Have a great weekend everyone
