Almost Christmas

Well a busy week, had an order for 12 of my cutwork sachets, concentrated on them over the weekend and into Monday. all done and winging their way to a new home. 

M & S for Food goodies on Tuesday.

Christmas tree up and decorated over Wednesday and  Thursday. Collapsed at that point and watched Jason Bourne after eating a delicious Chinese from M & S.

Friday Waitrose delivery and repacking stock from last weeks fair. 

Saturday & Sunday sorting for the Vintage Brocante on the 10th. Next week will double check have pricing labels and props etc. Only a 4ft stall at this event that has to be born in mind when thinking of props and placement. Want the stall to look enticing but not overcrowded like a jumble sale.

This is my last event of the year and over the holiday's I look back at events diary some on for next year and delete others. Look at other opportunities etc. Got chatting to a lady at the Headley event, met her before through the fair and the WI, she has joined with about 12 other ladies and they have formed a craft co-op. They hire out the cricket pavilion in Grayshott and hold a mini event. May go along and have a look to see if would suit me. A small event but those should never be written off as sometimes they can be as good if not better than larger events, when you are competing with 50+ stallholders.

January and February are also my planning months for new lines, directions I want the business to go in etc. etc. Also the months when I start making Birthday cards and gifts for friends and family for that year. Planning Christmas 2017 gifts, I know sound a bit odd but as this is my busiest time like to be organised.

Until next week, have fun


  1. Wow - what organisation getting ready for Christmas 2017. I'm still working hard to get everything ready for this year. #HandmadeMonday

  2. Wow Caroline, I am exhausted just listening to all that! You are so organised with your new year plans. I'll wait with interest to see what your new lines are. #handmadeMonday

  3. It's easy to under estimate how much work is involved in a craft business. You sound like you have it well organised, and I love anyone that is a great planner 'high five!'

  4. So organised, I say slightly enviously...:)! It is interesting where items sell and we get they don't.. you are so right it is. It always where you expect:)

  5. Sounds like you're hyper busy, and an order for 12 cutwork sachets, it must be very flattering to know that people love your creations! You'll be ready for a well earned break in January, as you start planning Christmas 2017!!
