Hi Greenolive,

I often check your site and think your pieces are beautiful. I hope you don't mind me asking, but I am wondering how you catch the screenshot of your work when it is on Etsy's main page etc. I'd love to know how to do it! Thanks so much,



oh, thanks for the comments and encouragement guys. Red Hill market is on tomorrow and mr greenolive and I are packing a cut lunch for the drive down there!


Red Hill is very you I think you will enjoy it there and your stuff should sell well.


I was at Mt D market briefly and it wasn't my demographic either! I think I saw your stall and if I'm right it did stand out from the others in terms of style :) because it had some... Oh god did I really just say that?


Ah - I guess it is all about learning where is best for you as you say...I hope the next event is a sell out!!


Many of us in craftblogland have had similar experiences to yours this year - I think you put it very well. My demographics workshop featured a stall selling personalised pink hairbrushes to little girls. They had positioned themselves right by the door and I couldn't help thinking it was more than a little like putting sweets at the checkout in the supermarket! Better luck next time. I am doing another one in ten days so am keeping my fingers crossed.


I think you would do really well at Red Hill too. It's the same organisation that runs Flemington and Werribee markets and everything is handmade and gorgeous.
