First – I have a craft fair on Saturday. Am going to be spending the next few days frantically making stuff to sell. My aim is to end up with a couple of display boards filled with earrings plus a few necklaces and earrings. Today I also bought a couple of packs of canvas so if I get enough made tomorrow and Thursday I will try and create a few mixed media collages as well.
I’m really nervous, selling is not something I am at all good at so this will show me whether I have actually learned anything from this course I’ve been doing. Fingers crossed and all that!
In other even more exciting news, my lovely daughter Vicci announced her engagement a few days ago. She’s marrying a lovely guy who I am sure she will be very happy with so I couldn’t be more thrilled for her.
They’ve picked a date just 5 months away so it’s going to be a whirlwind of preparation. We’ve already been dress shopping and she’s bought a beautiful frock that she looks amazing in. I only cried once, which is pretty good going I thought.
That is not THE dress, just one of the many she tried on.
I’m not even thinking about what I’m wearing yet, I want to try and get some serious dieting in before we reach that point. Vicci has suggested that I wear something with plum tones which is her bridesmaids colour so it will probably be easier to find something in that colour once the autumn gets here.
I get the fun of doing the flowers and maybe making some jewellery for Vicci and her bridesmaids. I love wedding crafts so am looking forward to it She has some lovely ideas for what she wants.
Since this is supposed to be a crafts blog, I shall end by sharing the card insert I made for Vicci’s engagement card. She likes sheep and thankfully found it amusing rather than cringeworthy 🙂
