Busy weekend


Hi everyone and thanks to those who left comments on my last post, I love it when people say Hi and let me know they've passed by, so please don't be shy leave me a comment even if its only hello!


I've had a rather hectic few days and weekend. Last Wednesady evening I had a stall at a craft fayre at a local school, it was really busy and I sold quite a few cards as well as lots of beaded jewellery and sold out of "altered notebooks" I think I'd priced them a bit low but they were a great "calling bird" bringing people over to my stall many of whom bought other items too.

I had a hectic weekend, visiting friends, managed to persuade my other half to take me up to Hobbycraft at Gateshead to have a crafty spend Woo hoo.

I also treated myself to a Clippykit brag bag which I've decorated with atc's I've received in swaps.

Theres some more fab ideas for decorating them in the gallery on their website, aren't they a great idea?

I like it so much I'm going to get another and fill it with small scrapbook layouts, collage images etc.

Then today I FINALLY got round to making a card for the daring cardmakers weekly challenge ... and discovered I'm NOT that daring after all !

I have to be honest I find it very difficult to break out of my comfort zone and tend to find a style or theme I like and stick to it - which is, I guess, what these dares are all about.

Anyway I hope it's ok - you can see it here as for some reason I just cannot get a second photo to upload - maybe someone can tell me why?

Hi Jan
Your card is great -how come, it's only today, when looking for something else that I've found at least 5 different foreign language papers I could have used?

I really like the Chinesey one very classic and stylish.

As for images - sometimes you have to empty your cache to persuade Blogger to load your photos - I haven't a clue why, but it does work - only problem is you then have to log in all over the place with all your passwords again.

that card is utterly awesome. When your comfort zone is as great as that you don't have anything to break out of!
