One of my goals for the new year is to work on my online activity more, and with all these supportive Etsy peeps it should be made all the easier!

Well, I looked out of the window this morning, and this is what I saw! Lots of snow - so luckily I have no good reason to needto leave my house. I love the snow, but hate being cold, so hope it will clear up soon.
I have been working on editing photos and facebook / Twitter etc today as they have been a little neglected by me lately. Need to get them sorted as I have quite a few events coming up that will be needing my attention:
9th - 16th Dec, daily from midday until 11pm - Christmas Exhibition / Fair at the Tank Gallery in Ladywell, London SE13.
Sat 11th Dec, 12 - 4pm - Oakfield Prep School Traditional Christmas Fair, 125 Thurlow Park Road, Dulwich se21.
Sat 11th Dec, 10pm - 2am - Festival Of Sins Alternative Club night, featuring performance from Steampunk band "The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing". I will be trading with the other alternative stalls in the band performance room http://www.festivalofsins.co.uk/
Tues 14th Dec, 5 - 10pm - Farnham Maltings Christmas Market, Farnham, Surrey. An evening of gorgeous Christmas shopping, mulled wine, and mince pies!
Also, every Sunday, 10am - 5pm I will be at my regular stall in Backyard Market, Brick Lane, London E1. http://www.backyardmarket.co.uk/cgi-bin/web/index.pl
So as you can see, December is shaping up to be quite busy - especially the weekend of 11th / 12th when I seem to have something on for 48 hours solid!
I'm off to snuggle under a blanket, so bye for now,

LFCC last weekend was excellent - I met some really lovely people, and made some good sales! There were lots of Steampunks there, who I will hopefully meet up with again at the Asylum event in September (http://steampunk.synthasite.com/) and also got to meet Robert Rankin! In addition to the Steamy set, there were lots of Cosplayers - some interesting pictures below!!!
Robert Rankin and some Scary Girls!!!

All in all, a great weekend. Now, I will be knuckling down and getting some stock listed on Etsy - a few new pieces have been listed today, so please take a look! http://www.etsy.com/shop/coucouheart

Went to see the new Alice in Wonderland film the other weekend which I had been looking forward to for ages. I have loved the Alice story since I was little - it remains one of my fave childhood books. The film was excellent (apart from very silly dance by Mad Hatter at the end!) with some amazing imagery. Very inspirational!
As you will see from the pics, I have some new additions to my shop - loving setting little weird things into resin! Please follow the link to my Folksy shop to have a look at all the items.
If any of you are ever in Croydon, do come along to my actual shop in Stuff Marketplace (www.stuffcroydon.com). In addition to finding me there, I will also be at the following events:
Sun 21st March - Craft Fair at Fairfield Halls Croydon. 10am - 4pm
Sat & Sun 29th & 30th May - London MCM Expo, Excel London (www.londonexpo.com)
Anything else comes up, I will post asap! Bye bye for now!
