Wow it's the new month already. Didn't even realise Blogger's changed its interface.
Anyhoot few updates of the progress of Still Carvings:
- We took part in the Special Olympics Charity Bazaar at the Hassanal Bolkiah Stadium. It was a first for Still Carvings. It all started with a photoblogging trade, then my D50 kinda busted itself so I committed to another hobby - crafting. I have always LOVED giving things I make to other people, especially friends and family, and would usually get asked if I was selling them. I never did think that I would before but now, alhamdulillah, have been given the perseverance to sit and string and weave and braid, etc. Great calming feeling and always feels good to see the end-product. Plus, I just love working on my sewing machine. Makes me sound pretty old doesn't it? LOL! Anyway, sold mostly handcrafted things, made by my siblings and I, and also my cousin. Sold a few scarves and hijabs for my other cousin too AND the best thing was that I love looking at people rummaging through our trolley of Pre-Loved t-shirts and garments. Was SOOOO happy when a very frenchie chic young girl bought my swallow jumpsuit =') Now I know it's in really good hands.
- I'm religiously making bracelets (and most recently anklets) during my free time after work. Last batch of hex bracelets were done last night. I am tres excited to show a variety of other hexes that I have for next batch. InsyAllah will share that in Beautiful Faith! (You know, I should blog this in my Still Carvings blog but it's too much work managing a few blogs at once!)
- During the charity bazaar my fabric clutches were quite a hit. I didn't think anyone would buy them at first and I made only two! We weren't even through halfway and they were gone! Got a customer who kept coming and when she wanted to get the fabric clutches they were already gone. So now I know what next to sell to you peeps =)
