Another weekend over

Well thats another week and weekend over. I had a craft fair yesterday and was well chuffed at how it went.  I sold loads and now have to start getting my stocks up again. I started the day with not enough room on my table but as the day wore on I was able to take more and more out my baskets so they could be seen better. My next one is not till the start of september but I guess that will come round fast. I suppose I'll need to make a start on christmas soon. What a thought. Right bed time for me. I hope every one is well.  Happy crafting xx

me again

hey two days running can't be bad.  I should be making cards but right now I cannot get my head in to gear so will just it still lol I did make a card or two yesterday and am going to put on pics to let you see. I got the kit and the sheet from Craftsuprint which at the minute is my favourite place to go.

I wanted to ask you clever ladies how you decide how much to charge for your cards. I have been going from £1.50 to £2 but my mate says thats too cheap. I just dont think people will pay much more.  Any ideas ot tips you can give me??

At last I've found a way in again

Well finally I've made it back. I must be about the worst blogger around. I have been so busy lately between card making and working and the like. I was meant to have this afternoon to myself but the lass that was meant to be modelling for hubby was in a car crash and is on the road to hospital. Hopefully she's ok but I guess we will hear later.

I have now done two craft fairs and next week I do my third one. I am finding as I do them that there are a lot of things I don;t cover but I'm gradually getting there and making them.  I have now become a great friend of Craftsuprint these days. They have some fantastic stuff there.  I am also trying to get ideas together to make wedding invitaions.  I've done two weddings before but the brides knew what they wanted and I worked round that. Well I guess I better go try get something done. Hopefully I will get back soon. I hope you are all well and not getting too wet xx

My cards

These aren't watermarked but seems its easier to send from my phone lol

Back again at last

Hi there, I'm going to try this again.  I had major problems getting rid of my last attempt. Here's hoping I get it right this time.

I must try harder to be a better blogger. I was so busy with getting stuff ready for my first ever craft sales table. It went quite well and I even sold a few cards, got orders for a couple more. I've been asked told I'll get the chance of their next one. If I can book the time off I  hope to do another at the start of June. I am hoping I'm not selling either too dear or too cheap.  My new thing now is to put an insert in them as I go and label etc. should make for less stress. I also now know that I need to make more male cards and some more childrens ones too.

Last weekend I was at an Amy Shaw demo day and then next day I was at a workshop with her which were both fantastic. I did manage to spend loads but also not over spend. I have loads of new ideas now though.

I have since my last post I have found out how to watermark or at least put my name on my pics. It seems now I just need to find out how to resize and all that jazz. I'll get there.

Have a nice night. I do hope you are all safe and not too wet.  Hugs xxx
