This is a picture heavy post, so please forgive me.
I had a whale of a day, from 10.30am until 5.30pm so many laughs. Luckily I had gone to prepare, with others, my table the night before, because as soon as I got there I started selling, Which was a shock as it wasn't supposed to open until 2pm, but all the other stall holders were going around and buying early so they had a chance to buy as well. I don't know if this is usual as I hadn't ever attended a craft fair with a table of my own. I suppose it wasn't really what you call a "real" craft fair as it was for the church and held in the church too. Plenty of really good home made goodies though. I bought a jar of whiskey marmalade and cherry brandy Xmas pudding, and a couple of caramel toffee cakes, well I had to feed myself in the few hours there didn't I?
It started a week before, when I was asked if I would have a table, then luckily as I am only working 2 days a week, it meant 14 hour days and being fed and watered by my DH while I carried on making and making. I made my last card at 10.30pm the night before, to replace the ones I sold on the Friday night, I had made some of the church. I made another 18 with all the card I had left and sold them before 3pm, wish I had made many more, it would have made even more money for the church funds. However I was very pleased with what I had to give them afterwards.
I certainly came away far lighter and with less bags than going, thankfully, I hope to take them into work this week and raise more money this time for the department.
Enough of me waffling I hear you say, here are the piccies. I didn't have chance to take any photos of the finished products, so had to take them in church., my excuse for the quality of the photos. Hope you like them and that this post makes up for my absence, I have been busy making more cards, but they are for another post or 2.
