Our Martha

November 11, 2008

Since I managed to write about myself and the craft fair yesterday, I thought I’d devote a little time today to our Martha… the namesake of my Jewellery shop!


Martha is a gorgeous tabby cat. Shes about 2 years old now, and we’ve had her since she was a kitten. I can’t imagine life without this particular furball around. A pretty good little hunter – we’re often woken at 2am (I say we, Bob mostly sleeps through these disturbances) to find a terrified miniature rodent and an overexcited would-be murderer! That said she is always waiting for me when I get home from work, and bounds down the stairs having checked that it really is me… shes the only cat we know who answers to her name. Open the back door and call for her and she’ll be running down the garden (very vocally) to see what goodies you’ve got for her! Recently shes taken to sitting on top of the TV – this might have something to do with her fascination with Big Cat Diary, she seemed up for taking them on in a bit of a scrap!

Martha vs the Big Cats!


My first post!

November 10, 2008

I registered this blog about a year ago when I first thought about starting to sell my jewellery – but life took over and I never bothered to do anything with it!

So, today I decided to get my arse in gear.

I have registered myself on Twitter, which seems pretty cool – if you want to ‘follow’ me then you’ll find me here.

And I have started this blog.

I have started this blog, AND I actually have something to write about! Warning: this won’t be true very often. I am boring!

This weekend just gone saw the fruition of a lot of organising, sorting and chasing! I have been part of the organisational team behind the handmade craft fair. I had such a good time. I shan’t bore you with too many details but we had a queue when the doors opened at 11 – with over 1200 visitors through the course of the day. An unprecedented turn out for a first time fair.


The comments from both the public and the exhibitors were wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the day – meeting so many people and seeing the amazing products they were selling. You never know, we might repeat it next year!
