Hi everyone.
I have recently given up work as I am going through chemo so not well enough to work. I am struggling to get by on the benefits I'm recieving and I also dislike not being in work.

I have been making some handmade gifts for friends and I've decided to try to venture out into the big wide world and sell them to others too. I wondered if you could give me some feedback on my items and also if you could give me some advice?

I make things like hand painted embellished plaques for bedroom walls and doors. Also make nappy cakes and other new baby gifts and also greeting cards.

I have found that making them has helped to keep my mind off things but I'm a bit at a loss as to how to sell them and promote myself. If you do something similar do you have any advice?

Here is a link to my facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_214574438576165&ap=1 which you will see my items.

I welcome ANY feedback at all about what you think about them and how I could improve or what else I could do.

Thank you
Lara x

I love the embellished plaques, exploding boxes and baby clothes cakes, not sure the cards would sell as well. Have you tried selling on www.etsy.com or ]]http://www.folksy.com/]] ? Might be worth a try. Good luck smile
