I've been keeping busy with jobs other than card making, although I have made several of those too. I've been getting involved with Resident Committee's and meetings with our local housing association. Mostly to do with Estate Services, but also with the planning and execution of a Community Garden. Also I'd like to do a bit more work on my own little patch of ground, but money is very tight at the moment. If I'm very careful, and don't splash out on any craft stuff, I should be out of my overdraft by June!! LOL. ..............but Lilli of the Valley have so many nice new stamps out........*groans*
I had a stand at the Local International Womens Day Event on 5th March. It was held at South East Essex College, and I shared a stand with my neighbour who makes Jewellery. She only found out about it quite late, and couldn't get a table, so we shared. Unfortunately, the tables were exceptionally small compared to last year, so we were quite squashed up!The event wasn't that busy, but I did manage to sell 7 cards, which is really good for me. I forgot my camera, but my neighbour remembered hers, so I've pinched a couple of her pictures!!
Looking at my picture here, and my profile picture, it's quite obvious that I need to update my profile. On the other hand, perhaps I'll keep it as inspiration to lose weight!! When I can take a "thin" picture, then I'll change it, LOL.
This picture is showing the full table ( small, as I said) but I think I have a couple of close ups of each side which are clearer.
We had a really great day with ( hopefully) a couple of leads to more craft stands later in the year. At least, they took business cards..........I just have to hope they DO get in touch.
I've been busy making a bespoke card for Mother's day, which I was going to show off, but its going to have to wait. Unfortunately the camera is out of battery. Still, at least you know there's a card to view soon! Going to cook lunch now.......see you later......
