Hey everyone how are you? So the winner for that N30,000 contest by David Thoreau has been selected and contacted. It was Chioma Lauretta. I know there were challenges with purchasing the book from Nigeria and we are working on fixing that. Once that is sorted, it is likely another contest will be held for those that didn’t get the chance to participate in this one.
On another note, how has your week been? Mine has been filled with possibilities. I won something on instagram from crafties4all (a craft and hobby store) here in Lagos. The question was on how to price your handmade items. As a creative, I find it very difficult to place a monetary value on my items because sometimes I feel that folks won’t buy it because it’s too expensive. And if I sell it for too cheap I am giving away my valuable time. I have been encouraged to sell my stuff and I am working on it. I just have to come up with a name (I want something with “creative” in it). Lol. I took my etsy store offline since I left the states.
I am very willing to admit at this point that I am extremely talented and need to profit off my work. So If you want something or would like to buy a piece, please do let me know. I don’t sell at Gucci prices – at least not yet. Lol.
This is my longest labor of love thus far – it took me a month off and on. Each flower and square was individually crocheted and all squares joined together.
Right now WP is misbehaving so I will psy pictures some other time of my work.
