I sold some cards :)

I sold a few cards yesterday and met a really lovely lady also selling cards who told me about loads of shops in Sheffield I never knew existed. It was pretty quiet and we were the only people selling at the fair everything else was free so we didnt get a lot of people with cash to spend but we did ok :) and I had lots of nice comments on my cards which is just as good I think. So I have some extra cash to spend this week and loads of new places to go spend it which rocks :)

Award from Lou Attitude and gratitude

I am terrible at updating my blog and have just spotted Lou from Lou's Blog had passed on the attitude and gratitude award. I will eventually be a blog whizz and won't be so slow on the uptake but in the meantime I want to say big thanks for the award and pass it on to some others that deserve it lots too :)

Marble Magnets

I've made a few to take with me to my first sale tomorrow. They are really easy to make and do look good on a notice board or fridge, slighty different to normal fridge magnets. To make them you need some clear glass pebbles, I got mine from Ebay but you see them all over these days, some magnets also from Ebay, Silicon glue and a 3/4 inch circle punch. then punch holes from left over bits of paper or put the marble over images in magazines and see if they would make good designs then punch them out. I've used loads of free papers for most of these ones as I always save them but rarely see a use for them.
Eek one more day til the sale, I have had a few people tell me they are going to buy some cards tomorrow, hopefully I'll sell out :)

busy bee

Here are a few more cards I've made for the sale I am doing next Friday. Fear is setting in now that I either won't sell any at all or I won't have enough to sell. I need to get my crafting hat on and make loads more just to be sure.

Forever Friends cards

I've used up some odd images I had left on a sheet of Forever Friends stickers to make both cards. I am trying to use up all my old stash before I buy anything else (although I did buy some markers from QVC today and some papers from Docrafts on Friday but they don't count lol) Hopefully I will sell a few cards next week to pay for some new bits and bobs because a lot of stuff is looking dated already and there is a list as long as my arm of things I want.

New gift box

I made this box for my mother-in-law's birthday pressie last weekend. I used a template from papercraft inspiration website and covered it in Laura ashley paper, used a leftover strip mounted on to Silver card tied with some ribbon to add a bit of interest. The handles on the template were a bit flimsy so used trusty ribbon. turned out rather well and didn't drop to bits when the pressie went in so bargain!


Was asked at my son's nursery today to sell some cards at their school multicultural fair in two weeks. Now I've said yes the panic is setting in and I will have to get making. I have no idea how many to take what to charge or anything but it's all good. Fingers crossed they are liked :)
