To achieve enough stock at this time of year it is important to stick to a good routine. When I did the Country Living magazine show every year this was vital. Each day I'd sit down and produce a minimum value of items. For example three ornate necklaces or ten quicker necklaces, the beginning stage of 5 dolls or 100 handmade buttons. All roughly the same value when sold. I have slipped out of this disciplined way of working lately and I'm trying to get back into the habit. Remind me!
A Good Routine: 7-9am emails/blog and housework then 9-5pm designing and making.
