I've been having quite a productive sort-things-out time recently. I've designed my logo, banner and business cards for my etsy shop, and even finally got around to setting up the shop itself. Of course, there's nothing on there yet, but I'm feeling very confident that come June the 4th I actually will have something to sell. I made a start on some badges last week:



Not the best photo, but you can catch my drift. I love using my badge machine. Everything looks amazing as a badge. Who would've thought that stretching a bit of fabric round a metal button would look so stylish? Or adding just a tiny piece of film over a flimsy piece of paper could give it a whole new lease of life? I'm just waiting for the backing cards to come from Vistaprint and I can start dividing them up into collections of five or six ready to upload.

And my Mummy and Baby monster is finished:



She's called Daphne. The baby is Erkle. Not idea where that name came from, but I think it suits him. Next up, a five-legged, three-eyed green monster with an antenna.

I love Daphne and Erkle! So sweet. :)
Thats a lotta badges. Do you have a professional badge maker or one of the badge-it ones?

I like your monster and baby, one of my middle names is Daphne.

The badges look great, I have been thinking about getting a machine for ages, can you recomend a good make and where to buy online? Toby and I have booked a stall at his school xmas fair to sell some jewellery, but I think badges would be a good idea too, somthing cheaper for the kids to buy, and also sounds like they would be fun to make!
