WowThankYou - my latest venture

I'm seriously in danger of becoming a cybernerd if I'm not careful. I've been tweeting away to build up some networking and publicity and I can see how easy it must be to fall into the trap of sleepless nights whiling away the hours obsessively scanning snippets of info.

Gibside Market was a lovely day out last weekend but slow going on the sales front. Still, you don't know until you try so I'll keep plodding on.

Well what's been happening at Personal Space Interiors you ask? I'm just finishing off an assignment for my Diploma in Professional Interior Design today. Colour Theory - all very fascinating in a chemistry / physics / psychology kind of way. I've uploaded my new Toile de Jouy bedroom range to the website - see pic. And I'm about to open a new shop on the fabulous WowThankYou as recommended by lovely Ceri from Oakwood Soaperie (check out her shop on WowThank You - gorgeous goodies).

Happy crafting everyone! xx

Another day, hopefully another dollar...

Well, after all the rush to get ready for the vintage fair at the last minute I probably needn't have bothered. Sales were very slow - and I mean slow. I'm sure I spotted some tumbleweed at one point...Never mind, there's always next time.

Saturday 20th August I'll be setting up my first stall at Gibside Food and Craft Market which hopefully will prove to be more of a success as it's well established in the area. Gibside is a gorgeous National Trust estate near Rowlands Gill so you get to have the pleasure of a walk in the grounds as well as a bit of shopping so you can't go wrong.

I'm trying my hand at making greetings cards. I thought I'd be all clever and use a glue gun. Never again. Bring back PVA in a squeezy bottle - much less faff and clagg.
