106 more days until Christmas.

I know still a way to go but I love all things Christmas, the church bells, snow, glitter, snow, giving gifts, cards, snow, snow and snow. To wake up to a quiet but clear morning and know with the hush it is white outside. Not good if you have to get around and being in a village have been snowed in before. Sadly now the army have left think we will remain snowed in if we get the white stuff.

Dog walks through the white stuff, bliss. Okay back to normality and Autumn which I am sure is a month early, the trees are turning already but do think we had summer in April through to July.

Creating this week? Made a bandanna for Shiloh, dreadful behaviour for a model and had to be blackmailed with a supply of doggie biccies to finally get one shot. Spent most of the time with his head as a blur or his tongue stuck out! Such a diva, not sure would employ again, think will make a soft toy dog to use in the future.

Put on Facebook and had an order for 2 within 5 minutes

All done and posted off last Monday.

Just goes to show how good FB is for advertising. Noticed an increase of visits to my page as well. Maybe doggie things are the way to go.

This weeks diary:

Sunday - Bandanna order, packaged ready for posting

Monday - Trip to Godalming so nothing creative done

Tuesday - Should have been adding new makes to my website but DH took over the iMac

Wednesday - Adding 2 new makes to my website at a time as find this part of the business boring, love to make. Okay actually added 8 items today.
Plain contrast fabric arrived ready for the sample bandannas tomorrow.

Thursday - More website updating, all finished now and must do as I make.
The champagne glass silver die cuts arrived, mock up for 60th Birthday invitations sent off for acceptance. Still waiting on delivery of the cards though.

Friday - Samples of the different bandanna patterns added to my website.

Cards for the invitations received, printed off and champagne glasses added. Have blurred out the details top and bottom of the card. I can assure you they did not go off with black smears, lol Booked for collection by courier tomorrow.

Saturday - End of term Teachers gift ideas started: Best Teacher mug rugs

Also started a list of the items that I am taking to the fair in October, plan to transfer to the paypal app on my iPad, this needs to be done by early Oct but hoping to start on that task next week.

That is another week from my crafting diary, what will I get up to next week? What have I learned this week? to take photos and add to my website as I go!!!!

  1. I love how wonderful you make Christmas sound - it's very infectious! We never actually seem to get the white stuff here at Christmas but it's always nice to dream it will happen one day!
