Scared about the fayre

I may have mentioned that I've been offered a table at a craft fayre on 4 December.  Rather rashly I accepted said offer and now I'm panicking that I haven't got enough time to make sufficient stuff to stock the stall

I am a bit of a procrastinator and now it's only 2 weeks away.   I've hardly made anything in the past month when really I could have made lots of stuff.    I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that I know of 2 people who have done craft fairs today and one sold 4 cards and the other sold 8.   Maybe taking 10 cards will be sufficient..........

Anyway today I made a birthday card for my friend who's has a birthday tomorrow.  I used the new MCS CD "A Very Important Date" and adapted a fold from the "Everyone Needs a Hougie" book. 

Although, when I say I used the MCS CD, that's not strictly correct.   I ordered the Pick of the Day on Ideal World last week and the CD had a paper pack with it.  The front of the card is using elements from the paper pack, the insert was printed from the CD, but I haven't taken a picture of that.

And more earth shattering news - I made a cake today.  

Later folks

  1. Good luck with the fayre. I was told about one near me but I chickened out. My bits are not selling that well on Folksy so I thought that I wouldn't make enough to cover the cost of the stall even.


Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
