Good Morning Ladies,
Well the weather has caused a bit of a miserable start to the week, but turning that negative into a positive means we have more time indoors to Craft !!!
I decided to go for a Sketch Challenge this week as we haven't had one for ages, I also find them a great solution for those moments when you just don't know what direction to go in with your card making. I have always thought that too much choice is as much of an obstacle as not enough choice.
So here is this weeks sketch, a fairly simple design, you don't need to use stars of course, you could have flowers, snowflakes, or keep the stars and go for a Masculine design the choice is entirely yours.
The sketch is only ever a basic guideline you can change bits to suit your style of card making.
I look forward to seeing your designs xxxx
Proud Mummy Moment...…
Matt has been wanting a little side line to try and make some extra cash for a while, so he bought himself some Bathbombs/Candles etc and yesterday he had his first stall at a School fund raiser, he has bought all stock and bits to display in about ten days. Paul and I didn't know what to expect as he has never done anything like this before, he hasn't shown any interest in creativity, I helped him with a couple of things, cutting his cellophane wrapping into squares and the only other thing he asked me to help him with was Bows, he has huge hands which are better for farming than crafting, so I had the idea of getting some of those silver bag twist ties and actually placing them in the bow as you tie it, that way he has ready made bows to add to packaging, all he has to do is twist it onto the top of whatever wrapping the customer chooses.
Anyway he sent me a couple of photos of his stand at the event, I have to save I had tears in my eyes as I was absolutely blown away, he did an amazing job, so many great ideas, all of which were his.
I don't think his sales were that great, but I think people were put off because of the weather, it was a garage sale trail, that ended at the school where there were Car boots and inside were crafts and other sale tables. But I told him not to get disheartened this time of year there are so many craft and gift fairs on the run up to Christmas that there were plenty of opportunities to sell more. It really does knock your confidence though. I think his ideas are fantastic and he has many items at pocket money prices and things that would make great teacher gifts so fingers crossed his new venture will turn into a success.
I hope that you all have a lovely Monday and enjoy this weeks challenge.
Love and hugs to all of you,
