Closing the eBay Shop and Other Tales…..

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to find five minutes to sit down and write out our Blog… Where to start?!

The launch of the new website went really well – so well, in fact, that we have decided to close down our eBay shop. You can still find us doing charity sales on eBay – just look for our new user ID: thekraftylady-vikiandpaul  (I know it’s a bit of a mouthful!). You’ll also find a few wholesale/job lots on there, which are leftover bits from the old shop – lots of bargains to be had…..

We’ve found some awesome items to put in the shop, and I’ll be able to get back to making things throughout the next couple of weeks, so they’ll be lots more handmade items available, as well as loads of cool clothes and accessories. It’s so exciting! But it has been really hard work, although it’s all good fun! Paul’s going to be making some more things out of wood soon, and I’m really looking forward to being able to list those in the shop. He’s been working really hard recently doing our bathroom – we haven’t got one at the moment! Which has proved to be a bit of a nightmare to say the least…. but we’re well on the way to having a new one put in – yay!

We’ve also been having some fun setting up The Krafty Lady Kam – our new webcam which shows what’s going on at The Krafty Lady HQ! It’s not switched on all of the time (thank goodness, I’m not great to look at first thing in the morning!), but it’s definitely worth a look – if only to prove that we ARE working hard!

And we’ll be getting out and about a bit more in the next few weeks, which I’m looking forward to – including a visit to the Terracotta Army at The British Museum for my birthday, so that should be really nice. I’m also planning on getting out in the garden soon and planting the first of our crop for this year… The weather has been so beautiful here I can’t resist going out in the garden and getting some fresh air! I’ve already planted some herbs indoors, so hopefully that’ll be keeping us busy over the next few weeks, too!

So, all-in-all a busy but exciting time for us all! If you haven’t checked out the new website already then you should! 🙂  I’m listing new items everyday and although it’s being populated slowly the stock is growing all of the time. We’d love to put your pics up in our gallery page too, so take a snap of yourself with our items and email them over to: – can’t wait to see them! 🙂
