Phew - Thank goodness that's over !!!!

Well my card sale is over for another year!!! How much hard work was that for a 2 hour sale !!

I took a good selection of cards but as always there were one or two I didn't have. A 90th birthday card for (as the lady wanting it rather flipantly said) a woman who wasn't expected to live past Christmas!! so she didn't want anything cheerful. I would have thought it was a celebration that the lovely lady was still with us LOL!! and a male card for someone who didn't drink, didn't 'do' sport & she didn't know what his job was . . . . . . give me strength!!

This is the only sale I do as the rest of my cards are sold via hairdressers, staffrooms & friends workplace so that is enough to keep me going at the moment.

I took £92 in the 2 hours & have orders worth £35.00 so I was well chuffed as most of the cards were £1.75/£2.00.

Just glad I don't have to do one every week.
Thank you so much to everyone who wished me luck with the sale. It's very much appreciated.


  1. WOW!!! you did amazingly well, huge congrats for the money you made today also for your new orders xx vicki xx

  2. Yay -BIG congrats. I'm really happy for you :)

    Am wrecked with fatigue, a few little tears of exhaustion sliding south, have to go to bed although it's only 9 o'clock and worst of all haven't made anything in 3 days now...

    Nice to know that you are pinky and perky over there!

    Sweet dreams

  3. OMG!! Well done!! I hope I do half as well as you when I go to my first fair in a couple of weeks!

    Maybe you could give me a few tips!

    xx :0)

  4. Well done!That is great & boosts your confidence.
    I had chance of doing a show today but was £45 for a stall!!!! :o)x

  5. It was at Lotherton Hall (Leeds.my friend said there were other card stalls,so I wasn't prepared to chance it,I take so long to make a card & too personal to give away!!!!:o)x

  6. Slept round the clock and woke up thinking: great, let's get back to work. If only I could camp out in the back room there and take in some things to make it a little more comfortable! I'd start with a table and a comfortable craft making height chair. Add some card, paper, ribbons ( do you remember the good ole days of Mich's ribbon challenge -seems like years ago LOL), glue dots, double sided tape, scissors...... life would be so much better!!!

    Anyway -thanks to you I did get round to making a My Time to Craft ribbon card -which I hope you will visit in memory of those good ole days teeheehee

    Oodles and toodles,
