I've been working hard on samples for a demo day I've been asked work at Craft World September 10 and 11th but unfortunately I can't show them to you just yet. Hmmm...what do you think that could mean???
I do however have some 'old' cards to show you. Steven was cleaning out the garage the other day and came across a big plastic box filled with cards I had made at least 5 years ago and used to sell in hairdressers, florists and beauty salons. When I was going through them I couldn't help but cringe...I can't believe people actually paid money for them lol!!! Have a look and see what you think...
The sad thing is I probably thought they were amazing at the time lol. They were obviously pre sewing machine, buttons, Nesties and Copics! I think I was using my water pencils and my fancy scissors. Thank goodness for Nestabilities and Martha Stewart lol.
I'm not sure what I'll do with them...I don't even think a charity shop would want them! They did bring back a lot of memories, one being that when I first started making cards almost 11 years ago I could make 20 plus cards a day. I used to work from my dining room and didn't entertain for almost 2 years lol. I would sit until 2/3 in the morning (I was probably waiting for Nicole to come in from a night out) happily stamping, cutting and sticking and now I'm lucky if I can get ONE card made every couple of days and have to be in my bed well before midnight!
I must have 1000's of stamps that don't see the light of day let alone ink. I really do need to do a major clearout which was supposed to be a job for this summer but I just haven't managed it yet. Along with the stamps I have Sizzlet alphabet sets I don't use so maybe 'one day' I'll get it all cleared out and have a sale. I did try and sell some stamps on Ebay a few years ago but it ended up costing me money hmph. I have seen girls sell SU! sets (I've hunners of those!) on their blogs so maybe I'll try that.
A bit of advice before I wish you a great weekend. If at any time you think you need to tackle that 'tash' don't do it yourself...go to a beautician and get it done proper like. When I was removing my makeup last night I had a good look in the mirror and decided the tash had to go so got out my waxing strips, warmed them up in my hands, applied and ripped...and ripped...and ripped. There were a couple of extremely stubborn hairs so kept at it but I've obviously overdone it and I think I've removed some skin too...the top corners of my mouth are decidedly sore and look like I've got razor burn lol.
On that note I'll love you and leave you!
Catch ya later x
