"Hi, I too need all the help I can to get more sales- I noticed you mentioned pinterest, I've been wondering, is it acceptable to promote our own creations on there or is it supposed to be noticed by someone else and pinned? I can't seem to…"
I seriously started my craft hobbies about 12 years ago, starting with glass painting, after I'd sold a few bits here & there to friends, I thought I'd quite like to "branch out" & try selling elsewhere.
I'd like to say I create in my spare time, but as I have a family to look after, I don't have any, I fit my craft in wherever & whenever I can in Happy shed at the bottom of the garden...I've just completed my first year at Uni studying for my Digital art & design degree.
Itsy Bitsy Art by Sam
I specialise in polymer clay caketoppers for celebration cakes, however I also create, miniature food & artwork for dolls houses, although miniatures make a great gift for anyone,even those without a dollshouse, a little cheeseboard with favourite cheeses for example, are a real surprise gift!
More recently, I have been creating special dinners & recipes in miniature & these have been really popular!
Each creation is lovingly crafted by hand,& with few exeptions, (wedding cakes for example) my mini food is created from life, I use no moulds & no special tools,& all of my work is inspired by everyday life, & the love of my family!
I will soon be adding drawings and photographs to my shop.
As well as recently joining the lovely atmosphere on etsy, I make my sales at craft fairs, school fetes, & website orders, I now also hold workshops for small groups of people who are interested in having a go at something different!
I am a member of the British polymer clay Guild & the Guild of Essex craftsmen.
