Sorry you haven’t seen anything from me for a while… I had a few issues uploading media, then had problems starting new posts, or making any changes to my website. I’ve now switched over to a friend’s server, so hopefully resolved all these issues!! 🙂
I also had an extremely busy summer, followed by a manic build up to Christmas, then January/February trying to recover and catch up, although that doesn’t excuse me not blogging for 8 months!
So, what have I been up to??
Well the summer was mostly photography.
you can look here http://www.rwickett.com/ for some of the stuff I’ve been up to.
This has meant a switch for Made by MessyMuppet to online.
In the summer I re-organised and fully stocked my Etsy shop, which seems to be working nicely. So, for now, I am going to focus on Etsy and have disabled my tictail shop. It helps to have all my items in one place, it’s easier to keep a track of!
You can see some of my etsy items on my “shop page” and click to see the full range.
I have also been crocheting a lot more, mostly hats, but hooded cowls, fingerless gloves etc. At the moment these are mostly crocheted from Stylecraft Special 100% acrylic, as I personally find it soft and comfortable to wear, and I can’t wear wool. But I am very happy to use other yarns if people would prefer and very happy for custom requests.
I have been making a lot of my own patterns, and plan to expand this range. For Christmas I made animal hats for my nephews, which went down well, so i plan to expand this and have a whole range of fun kids (or adults!) animal hats.
As this is quite different to my upcycling, i’ve decided to open a new etsy shop for my crochet.
You can find this under the “crochet shop” tab
If you would also like to open your own etsy shop you can do so by following this link
right, that’s it from me for now… but i’ll be back soon!
