Where is the time going?

Once again it has been a long time since I last blogged. I did say that I was going to blog about 2010 in the life of Zazu Jewellery but unfortunately my scanner has broken so cant put my press articles in!

I have decided to start a party plan business so if you would be interested in getting some extra cash please do let me know.
I have my first recruit who lives in the same town as me and she has her first party booked  in a couple of weeks time.

I have been busy refining collections like this:

Creating new collections like these:

Its only two months til the British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) and i'm getting really excited. There is absolutely loads of stuff to do still.
I now have all the stand furniture and need just a couple more necklace stands. The hotel is booked and most of the collections are completed.
I do however still need to design some promotional material, make up a stock of jewellery and get a hair cut!
I am hopeless with my hair so I plan to get it cut the day before we go in the hope I can keep the style looking good for 3 whole days!

New Year, New Room - Well Kinda

I hope that everyone has had a great Christmas and New Year?
I went to Wales to visit the folks and my sister over Christmas, it feels like ages since I last saw them.

On my way home I picked up my display cabinets for the BCTF I am so excited/nervous now, there are only 3 months to prepare.

I didn't do anything for New Years Eve as I have come down with the lurgy but it has been nice to has a bit of time to relax.

I started to clear out my craft room today, I can now see the floor which is incredible! It has been used as a bit of a junk room but this year I need to get focused and organised so I will be chucking, donating and car booting a lot of stuff over the next few weeks.
I just need to clear the bookshelf and the desks now and then head off to town to get some more storage to put in my wardrobe for finished pieces.

By tomorrow I'm going to try and get together a blog of all the highlights of 2010.
