My craft fair was a big flop made a loss of £6.50, table was £10.00 sold a candle at 2.50 and a scented drawer sachet for 50p and a door hanger which was reduced to 50p as I had them last year on offer for £1.00 but they didn't sell.
Alan and I were chatting on our way home and he said I was aiming at the wrong market level that I needed to up my game and not do the school craft fairs but to up my game and go to actual craft fairs that the councils etc put on so I have found a site and put my name down cost £25.00 a year but they tell you where the action is and let people know about you through their site. So am waiting to hear now, but I have decided that although I love making cards I need to branch out into other papercrafts so am going to have a rethink and a brainstorm session with my crafty buddy Rachel.
I will still be making cards as there is no way I could give that up I love it too much but want to introduce things like note pads, writing sets, things like that so if anyone out their has any ideas everything would be welcome (clean of course).
I am going to try and personalise some candles by putting images of loved one's on them see how they go, starting with my granddaughter and her boyfriend. These would make perfect anniversary presents, Christening presents, Wedding presents wow the list is endless.
I do have a card to show you but Sarah went to a masquerade ball last night and took the camera with her so cannot take any pictures until she comes home, so will finish my blog tonight.
Bye for now
Love Alison xx
