Wednesday I took Hollie to playgroup only for an hour mainly so she could do the crafting, she made a ladybrd mask (piccie below) I'm glad we were there for less than the usual amount of time as all the children seemed to be so miserable, so many were in tears, a couple of little sods who were shoving others about especially if they wanted the same toy. Luckily Hollie wasn't amongst any of it, but poor Luke had a run in with a little boy who wouldn't let go of the car he was in, and his mother just sat there and called his name, like that was going to do anything.
One ladybird mask, I hasten to add I helped again this week!!!
I dropped Hollie off at mum and dads and picked my auntie up and off we went to meet up with the 'farmers wives'. I laid my cards out on a table and the ladies showed a keen interest in them straight away which was good. I sold a few cards before lunch which I was pleased about and others said they would look after the demo. We had a nice buffet style lunch, then I did my bit, funnily enough I wasn't at all nervous. They asked lots of questions, and loved the 2 cards I demonstrated. Several ladies had the packs and made 1 or 2 cards themselves others looked on and said they couldn't do the fiddly bits because of bad hands. I sold several more cards and in all it went very well.
Mum and dad picked Lillie up from school as I wasn't sure what time I would be finished, and Matthew and I had planned to go out for a meal as it was our '7th first date anniversary'. We went and had a mexican at a pub an old friend of mine has, I'm not sure if he recognised me or not or maybe wouldn't say anything as Matthew was there (but I don't think that would stop him!) it had been maybe 8 years since we last spoke, and I now have dark hair not blonde and have put on loads of weight. But anyway the meal was nice, but I prefer Pedros where we will be going in 2 weeks for my birthday.
Today I've caught up with a lot of swaps I have taken part in on the CM&PC forum, and went to the PO to get them all posted off before the next lot of strikes.
I demonstrated the card on the left and this oneBig thanks goes to a friend (craftymumof3) from the CM&PC forum for very kindly lending me some dies to use with my cuttlebug, the bauble die got used a lot, and the ladies particularly loved this card.
