What I am working on today!

Well its Wednesday and that means Craft Club night, where do the days go? Its hard to believe we are in August. Time I started to think seriously about Christmas especially as I have about 6 orders already. The problem with running a business like mine and others I suppose is that you have to be thinking so far ahead of these events, my mind doesn't normally think Christmas until at least September/ October but this year I should have been thinking months ago but still cant do Christmas before my summer holiday and I don't go away yet!

So that brings me to what I am working on today, well its this


It is an order for Donna, not sure if it will be for her friends 40th Birthday or for Christmas but my brief  is it has to be Teal and it has to be pretty so what shall I do with it? I think I shall paint it Ivory and paint the detail trim in Teal, I want to give it a vintage type look even though I think of Teal as a modern colour, maybe stamp the top, add flowers and a bit of lace, Donna wants her friends name on it but after that she leaves it to me to decide the design.

I also have another jewellery box to do and that one is for my Niece, its the same shape as this one that Karen made but slightly larger, this has to be pink with butterfly's.

Hopefully I will have these finished today so pictures will follow later.

After these I shall make a start on my Christmas stock, I already have quite a long list of items I want to make with wood, felt, paper and paint but what would you like to see in my Christmas stock?
