Bad times

Sorry I haven't blogged for what seems like weeks but have not been at all well and all inspiration to craft had vanished. I thought I would just let you know about the craft fair that I did at our local community centre in Tregynon.

 It was a very quite day and all the fellow crafters said how slow it was but I did OK with some wonderful help from to fab friends. The best seller was the lovely Tea light gift cards with matching gift bags with one wonderful lady buying 4 and then sending her daughter back for another 2.

I am off to Darlington later this week for the fabulous Crafters Companion Craftaganza. 3 days of crafting workshops and lots of laughs along the way so will hopefully have plenty to show you when I get back.

A very busy day

After having a dreadful day yesterday I felt that I had to get my skates on to make some more cards ready for a craft fair this Sunday. Over the past few nights I have been busy stamping and colouring, using Promarkers, the wonderful Humphrey stamps from Crafters Companion and today I managed to make up 20 cards with inserts and it only used 1 Crafters Companion tape pen !!!!! I hope you like the finished results. It is so surprising the different results that you can get with the same stamp but done in different colours my dilemma now is wether to sell the cards individually or in box sets.......any advice would be appreciated xxxxx
