I'm really enjoying this

It seems I am on a brooch making frenzy, and I'm really enjoying it too.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has commented and given their opinion so far - it seems like the flowers are still the favourites but nice to know that people would buy the square ones too. I guess the stall will be a real test of what people like/don't like. Quite scary really.

Anything that I don't sell on the stall will go into the shop. I suppose if the stall is a flop, at least I will have a nice full etsy shop.

Next up, I've varied the square theme slightly and gone round (that would be more than slightly - it's a whole different geometric shape!) Both of these I would buy if I saw them in a shop - I love the raggedy style of the red and denim one - I'm definitely going to make more of these because I want one for me, and I think it's about time too as I don't usually make things for myself - What better way is there of promoting my wares? Well, maybe 'as seen on Kate Moss' or something but I guess this is unlikely - could you imagine Kate Moss sitting at her computer of an evening trawling the pages of etsy? She really should though - she'd pick up lots of unique lovliness and it would keep her off the streets and out of trouble too - LOL.

I like the round brooches, maybe Kate does trawl etsy, you never know!! I like the flowers best but they are all lovely in their own unique way. x

If Kate does come shopping with you can you point her in my direction to buy a funky wallet? (there will be more in my shop soon!)

Both of those brooches are gorgeous!

Love the new brooch designs. Know what you mean about not always being sure about some things you make. I've often been really unsure about an item and then someone will come along who absolutely loves it. Can never tell! Hope you didn't catch my cold! Get better soon.

I love the idea of etsy as therapy. All those wee starlets just need to stay home , and spend their copious amounts of cash on etsy - no hassles, no photographers, no problems. GENIUS !

Also loving the denim and red combo.

They're lovely Monda - far too good for Kate Moss (no offence Kate!). I hope they sell really well :)
