August A-Team: Days eighteen to twenty-two

Well a fantastic opportunity has come up since I last posted. Marwell Wildlife are having a recycling 'week' from 31st Aug - 4th Sept. I have a friend who works there and he happened to mention to the girl who is organising it that I somethimes make jewellery out of recycled bits and pieces. She was interested in having some examples, I thought for display purposes. I finally got in touch with her directly last Wed and there has been a fair few emails back and forth. The upshot is- I am going to have a stall there on Fri 3rd and Sat 4th selling my recycled makes!!!! I've asked around the forums too. Nat of O'blue and Natalie of NOfkantsCurios are going to get some of there things to me to sell too. 10% of proceeds will be donated to the zoo as they are not charging for the stall. Exciting!!
As of a couple of days ago my folksy shop only had one pair of earrings and one bracelet that incorparate recycled materials. I've started more recycled makes but its gonna be a busy couple of weeks.


And I'm still going to attempt to keep up with the A-Team... Over the last 5 days I have listed 4 flower button earrings and another pair of forget me not studs. Pop into my shop to see the yellow and purple button earrings.



And here are a few of the many things from fellow A-Teamers that have caught my eye over the last few days. As always, click on the pics to find out more about these goodies.
