After admiring over these pretty Livework Colour Block Point Pens for a while, I finally bought two of them from Shedquarters – “Lilac” and “Snowgray”. It was so hard to pick because I wanted every colour available but I didn’t need that many. I think I will snap up “Vermillion” one next time – bright red, soft blue and cream goes together really well.
They are by far the nicest pens to write with. They are light and their nibs are thin (0.38mm), which I love about after their gorgeous colour palette.
Need new pens? I’d definitely recommend them. You can buy them over at Shedquarters (free UK delivery on all orders!) or Fox and Star. There are some lovely patterned pens too!
Do you have one? Do you love them as much as I do?
My stall on Saturday was a massive success!
I sold much more than I expected. My christmas cards was a huge hit, all sold out in the first 1.5 hours. Along with my prints and cards, I included originals as well as framed ones thinking they wouldn’t sell but some of them did! I had to say goodbyes to Whale, Christmas Robin, Robin, Bowing Owl and Pineapple. There will be prints of Whale and Bowing Owl available on my shop soon and Pineapple print is available to buy now here.
I was happy and overwhelmed that I weeped in the restaurant afterwards. The support I had from Aneurin, my sister, mum and her partner were fantastic and my stall wouldn’t be successful without them. The amount of compliments and purchases from the visitors were unbelievable and the confidence I was struggling to build this year are growing at last. I am so grateful for the kind people out there.
Naturally, there were some communication barriers but it was not that bad with Aneurin there trying his hardest to interpret when he wasn’t even a professional. It was really sweet that some customers tried to sign thank you back to me when I signed thank you to them for buying my stuff.
I will definitely apply for more market events in 2015, even the markets that rejected my applications this year – I will not give up!
