Time and etsy this evening!

Today i have had a few requests to purchase some of these minis before i list them on etsy. I am unable to do so because Ive already said in previous posts and this post all that is pictured will be listed this evening, so don't want to let people down.
I will make some more pumpkin pots with the faces and also some of the others that have had a lot of interest, plus some more skele bottles, candles with faces and items like that from last week. Will make these again in the next few weeks.
I'm not keen on commission work because I'm not very reliable with sticking to a time plan and prefer to make on a whim. I have promised a few people i will remake some items they missed but from now on can not take on any commissions.
I like to be free really to work with the materials i have and make on impulse.
Plus i have a terrible memory, even when i take notes, lol and get in a right pickle rembering what's what and who is who.

Thank you for all your replies as the best time to list Mini's. From what everyone says 9pm UK time seems about right. I'll try and list on Sunday evenings in the future but for now will stick to tonight for these listings.
I can't do Saturday evenings because X Factor is on that night (love it) and i also use Saturday night to snooze in front of TV with my blanket and pj's. Not a couch potato but Saturday night i book up the tv and get to hold the remote, lol. The kids and my husband are so selfish with the TV and hate me holding the controller... so book my slot!

Onto Mini's.

Will list 9pm UK this evening (Friday) and will pop back later to add more photos.

  2. Nikki, I am so glad you won't be listing on saturday nights, I watch X Factor too :0) In fact, we watch Xfactor and then the recorded episode of Merlin straight after. I don't get the whole sofa to myself though, there are 4 of us all squashed up on it, with a homemade (Julia friendly)curry and a snuggly blanket. Great family time :0)

    I love snoozing and can never wait for saturday evening, plus bug everyone snoring.
    Glad you all like the new look blog too! I wont mention how much i cried when it was all in a right state and stayed up till 2am making it right again. Have tried to use this image at etsy too, but even though i stick to the image size required it wont let me have what i want and keeps coming up too big.
    Ever so proud i did this much, lol.
    Ooh Janice, hoep it dosnt get you into trouble!

  8. Sunday nights are always slow around here so that's a good night for me, if I can just remember the time! And learn to be fast with the mouse :-/

    I really loved those candles with the faces but totally missed out. You simply must make lots more....please don't make me have to try to do it myself. I don't want a "Tabitha Tried but Failed"; I want a "Nikki Original"!

  9. Shoot! I am going to miss this one too! I will still be at work. I can't wait for Sundays to start.... Everything looks great. The blog is looking good. I really like the new photo at the top.

  10. Love the new look blog!!
    Enjoy your relaxing Saturday nights, Nikki - you deserve them!! It's impossible to please everyone around the world, and you are kind to even think of this :))

    Time to try out the 'fast fingers' on Etsy once again . . . :)))

  11. I see you fiddly with your blog last night, but I didn't have time to offer assistance...the matter of getting up for work the next morning. :o((

    Janice you made me laugh with your comment! lol Either that your hubby will suggest you work to fund your mini habit! :o)) lol
