Hello Everyone, and I hope you are all warmer than I am today. It's turned out to be a horrible wet and very cool day, I'm thinking that I must go and put a pair of socks on.
I do hope you are all well, but if not, them sending out kind thoughts for a speedy recovery.
Thank you too for all the lovely comments on my Oldie card, very kind indeed, also for the tips, advice and good wishes for the craft fair. As I had no idea what to expect, I enjoyed the day, but I thought it was pretty quiet, people milling around but not really buying much, it felt like they were there for a nosey around, I sold a few cards, so I was happy about that, but I really didn't want to be bringing so many home again.
Dale had her sewing stall, but again sales were poor, and she was a bit despondent, but I think that she was trying to sell her beautiful creations in the wrong place, and perhaps more of a Christmas fair would be better. Amanda, who was showing her gorgeous bespoke frames, took in a good few orders as did her dad with his framed comic books.
It was all a lot of work though, but new things are always worth trying.
I loved the comment made by one lady at my stall " oh what lovely cards, simply gorgeous, and I'd buy some, but then I would forget where I put them so I'd better not" I could hardly keep my face straight, but hey ho, her loss.
My card today is one that did sell with it's box;
A Fan card from the Kimono CD by Crafter's Companion, easy enough to put together, just a lot of cutting out. Sparkle and Pearls and I make the stand.
The box was made because it would never fit into an envelope, the sentiment is from the CD and I've used Die'Sire Lantern dies and peel off borders.
Here too is a photo of my stall:
Notice my lovely assistant reading the paper. I don't have any stands. so just had to lay them out like this.
This is Dale's stall;
Lovely tea cosies, nappy bags, ipad cushions, bags made form old jeans, knitting bags, oh she had been very busy.
I have more photos but for another day.
Right it is definitely sock time, I can't feel my feet.
I'm away behind in my commenting with being away, I will try to get around, but please forgive if I miss you out, not intentional.
See you all soon,
