I've had a great day, this morning I took my brand new stunt kite out to the beach to take it on its maiden voyage. After a few false starts I managed to get it in the air and doing some tricks. (well sort of, I think I need to practice.) The video is a little bit of flying, nothing fancy at all. I feel like a big kid! It is a lot harder than it looks as it was a real pull on my arms, I was shattered when I got home and just a bit achy. I think the sea air was good for my chest as I felt a bit less breathless. It makes sense really, as one of my  med's is salt water that I have to breathe in. Maybe they should put trips to the beach on prescription!

When I got in I checked my email and noticed I had two sales! I was really chuffed as I haven't sold anything this month. With those two sales I have doubled the amount I have sold. It is a great feeling knowing someone is willing to actually buy something I have made :)

I also noticed that  The Promotion Club Etsy team has two new members. Yey!  I am really enjoying running my own team, I love that it's promoting other sellers and I am enjoying 'meeting' new people.

Here is a treasury inspired by my trip to the beach. All the photos are links to the shops.


  1. Love the video clip. I must learn how to do this. Thanks for including my work in your blog and treasury.

    Oh! Oh! posted wrong name :(

  4. I think you did really well flying the kite. Not something I could manage anyway.

    Thank you for featuring my kindle cover in your blog and in your treasury.

  5. Thanks so much for featuring my print. That kite looks really high, I am a wimp at this time of year and tend to watch the wind from indoors by the radiator :-)
