hiya.....update on the craft fair i was doing today not really a very good turn out don't know if it was the really cold weather or just the wrong time maybe too early!!
or what ever the reason did not sell a great deal, before lunch it was fine then it just went really quite hardly anyone came in after that so a bit sad after my first one...boo hoo
Better look at the next one when ever that maybe!!!!

I see i have been given more suprises from my crafting friends which i will gladly visit and do the duty thing a bit later over the weekend, as off for a meal with my hubby now

Been adding all the inserts in my cards and packaging, Made many things for my craft fair as you can see off yesterdays post and i made some money cards today, What do you think??? I used the free CD crafters companion what was in one of the magazines a little while ago, thrilled with the images and print outs.
I have even had time to decorate my daughters bedroom with a lot of help from one of my daughters, god bless her.
