I've moved

my blog that is. I've built a new website with lots of help from my friend Carol (she has the patience of a saint!) and moved my blog there. You can now find me at
Hope to see you there.

The Scottish Deer Centre

I had a stall at the Scottish Deer Centre yesterday - what a gorgeous venue. Unfortunately it was very quiet (for a bank holiday Monday) but that was probably more to do with the weather than anything else. It's a shame, but the manager is planning on hosting more regular fairs there, so hopefully once word gets around the customers will start flocking in. The staff up there were lovely and the setting very beautiful - even if it did take us twice as long to find it in the first place. Usually a very easy place to find, however, Fife Council in it's wisdom, shut the direct route to there and the diversion signs were sporadic to say the least. However, eventually after taking a minor tour of Fife we got there. I think I may have to go back and actually visit the park itself sometime soon.

Another full week

It's been a week of events this week. Last week, my mother who lives in Cyprus, flew back to the UK and stayed for a week with her friend in Bury St Edmunds. On Tuesday, she took the train up to Edinburgh to stay with another friend so I dragged the husband and kids over to visit for a while. Tomorrow she and I are hitting Glasgow for some much needed catchup and retail therapy.

I also got my roller banner finally delivered and it's fantastic - huge, but brilliant.

I also got an unexpected email inviting me to take a stall at the Scottish Deer Centre in Cupar, Fife on bank holiday monday, so a nice trip upcountry is planned for Monday. I'm hoping it'll be busy (and profitable), but even if it's not, it's another venue to get myself out there.

Interesting day

Roughly six months ago I lost my keys - couldn't find them anywhere and suspected the dogs had taken them and buried them as they're wont to do. On the keyring was my memory stick with some of my templates etc for my cards. Anyway, this morning I found them!!!! What are the chances of that happening? Then my daughter came downstairs and told me she'd got a commission for me from her boyfriend's mother and then.........I got an email inviting me to take a stand at a craft fair next Monday. Well they do say things come in threes

Website and other fun stuff

Well, considering I've had the house to myself for two days and therefore plenty time to make cards, I've come up with nothing - no inspiration whatsoever. Ah well, I'm sure it'll come at some point. So I've spent the time updating here and tidying my website up. I've added a few more dates for the year and my calendar's looking quite healthy for the year so far. I've a few more things I want to do with the site, but that'll have to wait until I've taken some advice. Keep an eye out here though, and I'll post the changes as they happen.

Well, I broke down this morning and cleaned!!! One of the cats woke me up at seven this morning(woohoo, a long lie in), and since I had the downstairs to myself I thought I might as well make a start. So now it's quarter to ten, the house is sparkling and smelling lovely, all the windows are open to let the fresh air in and the sun is shining - glorious day. I now feel completely non-guilty about sitting down and making some new cards.

So here's the reason I got up so early today.... Kai

The reason I have to do so much housework...Rosie & Logan, and my old man - he's been with me the longest... Oscar

Friday at last!

It's been an awful long week. No idea why because I've been really busy and that usually makes the days go quickly, but this week seems to have dragged. Anyway, I've got a free weekend for once - no fairs, no commissions (all done and dusted), paperwork is all up to date so I get to play this weekend. I've got a couple of family birthdays coming up so I'll be able to get those cards done this weekend and I really need to update the website. I'll need to find something to do to keep me busy or I'll have no excuse not to do the dreaded housework!
