Chinese New Year!

Right, I have decided that the "luck" year runs to the Chinese New Year! The BF's job was a non starter and only lasted 2 days, so we are officially broke! This inevitably means that I will have to ease up on the swapping for the time being, till he finds gainful employment again. Dammit! Oh well, I will have to concentrate on money-making crafts for now. This is a good opportunity for me to develop my shops now I suppose! I have put a few things in my Etsy shop this week and a few things in my eBay shop. I've got a few things that I am working on for swaps that I had already signed up for before the redundancy, a Celtic Swap and a mushroom swap, which I am having to be very resourceful for, as I can't buy any new materials (craft supplies or food - tough choice!) but I see it as a de-stashing exercise! I have made the nicest silk painting and a crocheted bag, along with some other bits and pieces, but I won't post piccies just yet, in case my swap partners are reading! Chinese New year is in a week or so, so I'm determined that our luck will definately improve then!

Here are some of the pieces I have put in my shop!
