I don't think I've ever left it this long between blog posts.  Its probably getting on for a couple of months, which is ages.  I normally try and post something once a week but just recently I've hit a bit of a brick wall.  I haven't felt at all creative and its left me feeling like I've got nothing to say :/

Anyway, I thought it was time to get back in the saddle again and get posting again.  I've got a Craft Fair coming up in a couple of weeks so I need to try and de-meh myself.  I think part of the issue is that I haven't heard from the shop that I was going to sell some of my jewellery and gifts though.  I met with the shop manager over a month ago and they took some of my items to discuss with their partners and my contact details.  They said they'd get back in touch in a couple of days.  About three weeks passed and I'd heard nothing so I emailed them.  I was polite and assertive (I hope) and kept it light and just said I was emailing to follow up on our meeting.  I reminded them that they had several of my items but that I had heard nothing more.  I got an email back a couple of days later apologising and they said they needed to have one last meeting to make a final decision on what was going to be sold in the shop and then they'd get back to me in a few days.  That was a couple of weeks ago! I've actually decided to pull the plug on things and I'm just psyching myself to email to arrange a date to collect my stuff.  I need it back to sell at the craft fair and I'm feeling thoroughly cheesed off with the lack of professionalism.  I get that they're probably busy getting a new shop up and running but they won't have any stock to put in it if they treat all their potential stockists in this way.  If they'd been up front at the beginning and said it could take a month or two to make a decision I'd be okay and I would have just left them with pictures and not my actual items.

Anyway, the long and short of it is that I've been feeling really flat and uncreative.  I've made a few pairs of earrings and bought a couple of canvases to work on but other than that its been a really unproductive couple of months.  I thought I'd try and get myself back on track by restarting my blog.  Apologies for being a bit moany but I'm hoping that by getting it off my chest I will start to feel a bit more inspired.
