That was a really fun morning. Edna had done a fabulous job of putting together little kits so we could launch straight in to assembling our first cards.
This was mine. I think it worked pretty well. If only all bees had so many flowers to choose from!
Then we were let loose to experiment both with things Edna had prepared and with other bits and pieces the rest of us had brought along.
I came up with this design featuring blue tentacles and falling leaves. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it, but I really like it 🙂
I definitely have to get working on what to do for next time, everyone seemed to like the idea of bracelets so I’ll start with those and see what we end up with.
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 🙂
