Since I opened my Etsy shop as Circles of Rain I have had seven sales. I have not made much money but I enjoy thinking how to wrap the parcel when I sell something. Here are the three most recent. Noddy's car. So I printed out a Noddy and made him into a little standing figure, along with his friend Big Ears. I also made a Noddy themed card.
This little doll with her beautiful beaded dress was wrapped in some lovely Nigerian wax fabric. I have lots of pieces of this fabric left over from displays at school. It is coming in handy again at the moment. I love the bold colours and simple repeating patterns.
The tiny pastoral scene with trees and sheep was a problem to wrap nicely. I didn't want to just throw them into a cellophane packet so I sewed them to a card.
It has been sunny for a week and back to sun and showers this week. This is the display of sunflowers in the allotment over the road from us. Lovely!
This is a road near the local shop. I was waiting for Andy in the car and noticed for the first time how beautiful the door arches are. This is the best one as it has not been painted.
