Good morning and welcome to the November Daily Challenge Thread, wishing you all a very successful month with lots of sales, love and laughter. Pinch punch 1st of the month and all that!

Happy dancing for the late sales yesterday Sue, Sarah and Valerie and I’m glad yours is sorted Brenda.

Having a bit of a lie in this morning! Needing the energy as I am being brave and after much nagging from my daughter I am getting my hair highlighted this morning - wish me luck!

I managed to get a few new scarves listed yesterday although with the morning taken up with the hospital run I didn’t really achieve much else.

Morning and happy November

More melts from me.

Im thinking about selling sample packs for £1, just to cover postage. Do you lovely lot think this is something people would like? There would be 4 scents in a sample pack

Morning All!
I’m enjoying the calm before the metaphorical storm - first christmas market is in 10 days time I’ve then got 9 more scheduled before christmas and I’m still organising more. And I’ve got promotion with british crafters this month…
Here’s my listing


and now back to looking at LED rope lights.

Well I would Louise @Tealiteful - I often struggle with scents especially when you can’t even sniff the product but even when you can I’m never sure how it will smell or whether it would be overpowering when it fills the room - samples would let you try them out.

Especially love this Roz.

I think that’s a good idea. Also, could you add a sample pack in with orders you send out?

Thanks Roz, that’s what my thoughts were but wasn’t sure if it would be worth it. Can only give it a try

Hi everyone. Sorry I went AWOL last week. We went away, and I tried to put both shops in holiday mode, but kept getting custom requests, so gave up in the end, and got myself a bit stressed. It’s always a bit of a struggle this time of year, as I use all the craft pennies for Christmas presents, but get super stressed trying to complete orders promptly. It’s a bit silly really! One of my boys in 9 on Friday and I’ve got to make a cake a some point too.

I’ve been liking where I can though and have liked an pinned to here!

A relist for me today.

Aww Sarah - I totally empathise with you. I don’t want to let customers down by closing the order books but sometimes I take on a bit too much and then worry about getting it all done on time!
Maybe you could go for a simpler cake this time…I do love seeing your cake creations though!
What are you thinking of making? x

My listing today

5 sales to report overnight please Max @paperchainsandbeads x One is off to Budapest!

Morning All

Sorry I have been missing for a while but I’m really busy with making my own presents for Christmas and with orders from my shops on the other side. Good news is that I have almost finished jumper number 14 out of 20 so only 6 more to go now. Then it will be on to the jewellery making.
I’ve got a promotion with British Crafters running for this month so I’m hoping this will generate some sales for me this month.
Todays listings have been recently added to my shop, hope you all like them.

Managed to miss the challenge yesterday; trying to catch up relists. Then when my afternoon school run was cancelled I took the opportunity to get on with firing some work in progress. I’ve caught up with everyone on the October thread now; caught up to here on this thread; relisted the stock that expired yesterday; pickled a selection of pieces to start work on today; now to get the kiln fired up and spend the morning making. Hope to be back later with the new listing I should have added yesterday. Meanwhile here is one of todays relistings:
