Good Afternoon.... late afternoon really, it's almost teatime, where has the gone????? Well, I'll tell you, I been making cards, nothing unusual in that you might think, but I'm churning them out at a rate of knots for a craft fair, and it's damned hard work. Just how do you girls who do a lot of craft fairs and design on teams manage to do it all. It's taken me all afternoon to make three cards. Mind you I don't have a craft room, the end of the dining room table is my area, then I have to keep popping into the spare bedroom for all my bits and pieces, then I have to put up a little folding table to put up my die cutting machine, then I need to find a place to use the guillotine, and it goes on and on. I think that's the hard bit.
Anyway we just make do don't we, martyrs to our passion, crafting I mean.
My friend Dale is organising a craft fair and has asked me to have a stall, like a numpty I said yes, and it's next week, so although I have quite a few cards in my box it's mostly Christmas and Birthday ones, so I've been very busy trying to make the other occasion cards.
It is at this point I would like to thank all my crafty friends who have offered tips, advice and even cards to help me on my way. You are all so kind, and a thank you too for the kind words left on my last card.
I was off down to Fort William yesterday to meet a fairly new Blogging Friend, Janice, who doesn't have her own blog, but does comment on mine and others. I arrived a bit worse for wear, as I had discovered that I suffer from motion sickness on the bus, and this is because it is a very windy road along the Loch side down to Ft. Bill. Thank goodness Alistair was with me, he was going for a walk up Ben Nevis, cos I was in some state. So the upshot was that I had to buy food bags tissues and try to get some kind of meds to enable me to bus it back after my visit.
It was a lovely visit, it's great to put a name to a face, we could have blethered all afternoon, but we only had a couple of hours. Thankfully the return journey wasn't as bad, the tablets must have worked and I managed to get the front seat on the bus.
This is one of the cards for the fair, LOTV image and coloured with SN Aqua pens, SB Floral Ovals dies, Hunkydory card, and Crafters Companion, silver Centura Pearl card. Ribbon, and flowers from my box, a peel off sentiment, Pink and White Pearls and some Star Dust for sparkle.
I hope everyone is well, but sending kind thoughts out if your not, take care everyone and see you soon,
