New Ventures........

After much deliberation and advice from my lovely blogging and facebook friends, I have done it!  What may you ask - well, opened an Etsy shop.  It is something I have thought about for a long while.  I am a ditherer as you may have gleaned from my blog posts.  If something can be put off, I am your man (woman) so to speak.  Procrastination should be my middle name.  I gave myself a good talking to and got to grips with listing, taking photographs, describing, measuring etc etc, oh and then there was how much should an item be!!!

Bespoke Vintage Lace Corsage
I have been making lots of accessories with a view to opening a shop online.  I took a lot of images of my work and listed away, until my friend Gill told me about online photo editing!  Back to the beginning and enhancing each and every image and re listing them.

A few wrist cuffs were listed to complete a small selection of work for sale. So after much tweaking the shop is now open.

It is so lovely to see the sun is shining, and summer has finally arrived.  Until next time......






  1. AT LAST!!! you have done it Jayne, well done and welcome to the world of Etsy xx

  2. Congratulations my dear friend.

    It takes alot of courage to put yourself and your heartfelt creativity, out there for all the world to see, I'm really proud of you Jayne.

    Wishing you every success and much happiness with your new venture.

  3. I can't wait to have a look! I agree with the remark above - we women take everything in life so personally, but we must not be faint-hearted! Good luck with the shop and, most importantly, have fun with it.
    What's the name of your shop?

    1. I know nilly what is the worst that could happen! I can just close the shop if it doesn't work. It is called Jayne Hewison. Love to hear your opinion x

  4. Hello dear Jayne, Congratulations on opening an Etsy shop! That's wonderful and I wish you great success. You could put up an Etsy button on your blog, so that your readers can just hop over to your shop. Don't be shy :-)!
    Have a lovely day!
