As my making and planning time now shifts to prep for teaching at @womadfestival, I won’t have any time for working on sculptures for a while. So why not have a go yourself?Heres’s some great feedback for the 2 kit discount. Thanks for the kind words! ★★★★★ "Great seller - answered questions very quickly. Can’t wait to make these great projects. Thanks so much."

Happily finished a needlefelt border terrier sculpture for a customer.
This is based on my ‘Oh So Very Challenging’ needlefelt kit so you can make your own if you wish, but it’s quite, quite difficult, definitely not for beginners.
Time to wrap this.
And to wrap the hare sculpture.
And the pet commission.
LOTS of wrapping - hurrah! .

I’m on a sorta day off.
Which means I sorta got a lie in and I’m sorta having quite time whist sorta having a headache and sorta working on a commission (a sorta not-working commission).
So, in order to tackle the headache I’ve had a walk, a bath and two naps and a glass of prosecco.
And bingo, headache gone and I’ve given up on the commission.
Result.
Hope you’re all having a good day, not working too hard or self-medicating too much.
Take care, friends. .

Fancy a really, really, REALLY simple beginners #needlefelt #kit.
You can’t go wrong with the #robins. Two robins, very easy and great for hanging on one of those trees 🌲, you know, the type that we bring inside in the winter.
And decorate.
With lights!

IT'S TOUGH being a small business! Wonderful in so many ways, but tough too. There are SO many things you can do to lend a hand, and actually these apply to the campaign too. Small gestures make a HUGE difference. In the same way as us saying small sales add up, so do LIKES, RETWEETS, and comments. I always (@sarahhamiltonprints here ) try to Retweet people's events because it helps them promote them - just as an example. Another issue above is 'free stuff and mates rates.' Unless you run a small business you probably don't appreciate how tight margins are. If you have a salary and can afford it then INSIST on paying your friend, because it is tricky for them to ask and especially so if it's something quite small. They would feel uncomfortable asking you for a fiver or so - but actually that fiver is often make or break - and it's stock they've had to buy or make. Be considerate.
Much of JUST A CARD'S message is about trying to make people think. To appreciate that small gestures make a HUGE difference. That LIKES, COMMENTS and RETWEETS are kind and generous. (We at campaign HQ often see this as you actually thinking about US - if you help with the campaign by retweeting etc it gives us more time to do our own businesses) That helping people promote their events etc is SO appreciated. So let's have a collective group hug. Let's all, whether you're a small business owner or not, make an extra effort today to help & support others. Because what goes around comes around - don't you think?! What do you think of the list above?! We'd love your comments...👇 FAB IMAGE and fantastic content too from: @thegirlsmeanbiz
