Over the weekend we made a few changes to our online shop and upgraded. I think it looks a bit smarter and hopefully more user-friendly.
Unfortunately, the categorisation function has broken! While we look into fixing it, we are employing the tag function at the top of the screen for selecting particular categories of products. Hopefully we’ll get this sorted soon. Not ideal in the run-up to Christmas!
Last night I managed to take part in the chat with the @Craftblogclub on Twitter, having participated earlier in the year, but more recently realising that I had just missed it! I actually came across it having met one of the bloggers/makers through a craft market that we used to do.
Last night we were discussing our next projects and what Christmas fairs (if any) we are doing. Obviously we’re doing 2 in Chalfont St Peter and Chorleywood, on a reduced schedule due to impending house move!
There are lots of these creative groups on Twitter now, like Folksyhour and Handmadehour. Its a great way to share information, ideas and to even arrange crafty meet ups. I’ll have to see if I can take part in either of those, maybe as a one off.
@craftblogclub currently chats Tuesdays 7.30-8pm on Twitter
I’m currently plugging away at getting products made for our upcoming Christmas markets (Chalfont Crafty Collective and St Clement Danes School Chorleywood), as you can see from the photos above and below. I need to wrap and label these soaps and start on the next lot this weekend, as well as getting on with my regular wholesale order. I’m also thinking about what new products we can introduce this Winter…
We’re really looking forward to these two local events because we haven’t been able to take part in many markets most of the year due to putting our place on the market and now awaiting a move date. Hopefully this won’t happen too close to Christmas, which is the busiest time of year! Anyway, exciting times!
