Friday Oldie - Not a Card This Time

Hi Crafters,
 
It's Friday again and time to share and 'old' crafty make with Erika.
Usually I share a card but today I have found, in the archives, a photo of one of several Bag Charms that I made probably about 4 years ago!
 
 
I love this black and lime green combination and the dinky little charms, especially the birdhouse one. I used to make quite a lot of these but haven't made any jewellery now for quite some time. I still have all the tools and supplies so the option is still there and it's handy for those moments when your daughter comes in with a broken chain on her bracelet and I was able to fix it.
 
He, he.
 
There has been a lot of interest in my announcement recently about an exciting offer. Out of the blue I was offered some space in a shop to display and sell my cards and small gifts which I make for my Market Stall so I will need to start creating some extra stock over the next few months to have enough for the shop and my stall. That is what I meant when I said it would keep me busy for a while. The shop is in a small village but still has plenty of customers so I am hoping that all goes well.
 
Blogland is buzzing at the moment and I hope I have managed to visit you all and caught up with commenting. Thanks for visiting today and if you want to join in with Erika and share an 'oldie' project then call in at her blog and say Hi.

Oh great news about the shop, more crafting required! More pennies for new stash!
Thanks for joining me in sharing an oldie with me today. Did you make one of these for yourself too?
I too had a phase of making handbag charms, great minds think alike, but never got around to doing one for myself.
I love the wee bird house and the green and black combo.

Have a super weekend Lorraine and happy speed crafting!

Hugs Erika. x

How exciting, getting space in a shop. Like you, I also have boxes of beads and findings, kept for over 5 years. I use them sometimes on a project. Your handbag charm is lovely and the little house is very cute. Hugs, Carol S.xx
