Tuesday, 11 August 2009

I haven't been doing this for ages. Been on holiday in a very wet Cornwall. Had a good time just wish we were had some sunshine. Plus not being well been refereed to 3 different consultants.I just wish everything will work out and start to feel better. Won't bore people with it all. I made a few cards an added them to website, and misi etc and managed to sell a couple of cards. So pleased people are starting to like my cards. I hope to make some cards this week. I hope to do more cards this week and take some pic's and add them here.

tennis over, holiday over back to blogging. Had a very wet week in cornwall. Had a good time though. Did a lot of site seeing as never been to cormwall before parked the car on port issac beach (very random). Doc Martin Port Wenn. Lovely village, great food and great pubs.. We came home a day early as hadn't stopped raining for nearly 2 days. I think everybody on holiday in cornwall did the same thing. It took as 8 hours to get home. Must get back to card making (need to sell some though) have 2 to make and send out this week. Plus need to add some of my cards to my etsy and folksy accounts. I do hope I sell some soon. Begining to wonder if the cards I make people don't like?. ( I'm not looking for compliments just venting my thoughts)

I have a small table top sale in a couple of weeks, so I need to get motivated and make some more cards . But for some reason just can't. Haven't been feeling that well over the past few days so if I start making some cards it should stop me feeling so sorry for my self. Also my youngest daughters is flying the family nest tonight and I will miss her very much. My husband is in South Africa at the moment so I am missing him to. Right I need to pull myself together and get card making.

Have a chance of a festival in 2 weeks but they don't have tables. I don't know anybody with a pasting table. Do I go and get one, is it worth the expense I know they not expensive but I'm not into doing many fairs. Are people selling much at fairs, fetes, festivals.Oh I don't know.

Have finished the number cards and put them on my website. I want to start to do some gift boxes and some simple cards. But I do still have to put them on my misi and folkey. I will also put a couple of pics on here. My hubbies in south Africa for 3 weeks missing him already. So is Zoe (the dog)she's not very happy at all. My eldest daughter has moved down to Bristol for a year of Teacher Training plus her boyfriend so missing her to (so is Zoe) even though she(daughter) has been to Uni for 4 years, but it's final, she's left home. Now youngest is moving out to be with her boyfriend, she is staying in the village so that's not to bad. We have to accept that we brought them up to be independent. I moved out and got married when I was 23. I did also marry him within 10ths of meeting him and I wasn't pregnent. I must go a stop boring everybody.

FA cup final. Come CHELSEA. Yep I do love football, we are all ardent Chelsea Supports. Not that confident that we will when. We'll see. I have managed to complete the important birthday range of card. All photo'd just need to load them up and put on website, folksy, etc. Our eldest daughter has moved down to Bristol with her boyfriend. Not sure how I feel, she hasn't really lived at home for the past 4 years what with Uni and 1 year placement. It was all the important keepsakes she took with her that brought the lump to my throat. I don't think it will be to long before our youngest will be moving out to live with her boyfriend. We will see. God I have gone on a bit. I'm using this a bit like a journal perhaps I should do one. It's a shame it's such a lovely day out side but the football is calling.

It's so cold today, after the glorious weekend. I have managed to do a few more cards and will be putting them on to my site in the next few days. I do have to make a card for my daughters boyfriend. and a new home card. She is officially move out this Friday. She has been at uni for 3 years plus 1 year placement so she has been living away from home. Friday she does move out for good. She is going to live with her boyfriend in Bristol where she will be doing a teacher training course for a year. I really don't know were the past for years have gone. Any way I need to do these card this week. I really need to get some house work done, but the cards are calling.

My daughters just come back from walking "zoe the top dog."she needs a bath (dog not daughter) she has rolled in fox (is it fox poo or something else does anybody know???) poooo yeeeeeeeeek. We can (not we daughter) get her in the bath, for some unknown reason she(the dog)always ends up going to the corner of it. And once out of the bathroom, starts running at a great pace round the house. Whats that all about? Looking forward to the weekend. Think it's just going to be my husband and I all weekend, eldest daughter is going down to Bristol to see her boyfriend. the youngest is working and then spending time with her boyfriend. Hope everybody has a good weekend. This blog hasn't been very crafty sorry.

At long last I've managed to do some cards. The new cards are the ones that have been taken outside. Do they look better than they cropped card's. I can't make my mind up. If anybody reads this, could you please leave a comment good or bad(I can take it). You can also leave a comment good or bad(I can take it again) on the cards' themselves. I am slowly doing more in a different colour and do one for anniversary as I have been asked to do. that. I didn't think I would enjoy stamping as much as I do. So next I am going to stamp some children cards. Watch this space.

Another quick bank holiday. We didn't do much, OH had to work from home all weekend. I didn't feel that great so didn't get to do many cards only one. So this week I must do more. I also have got a order on folksy, all the way from Israel. It is worth spending the time advertising on all of the websites.

Weekend flew by as normal. Didn't get round to making any cards, as I was trying to get my new cards photo's on here, Folksy, Misi, Etsy. I have spent hours. You never know I might just get to make a couple of cards during the week. I have health issues and do not wish to bore people with them all, suffice to say things are not good and getting very down about it all. I will apologise to all that have sent me really nice comments and I have not replied to them . So I am very sorry. I do read all the crafty bloggers out there, I must start to leave comments.

Wednesday, 22 April 2009

Wanted to do some more today, not a chance. Having to try and find paper work my daughter needs for University.

Friday, 17 April 2009

Another week over and still I havn't managed to get any cards done. I do hope I can over the weekend. I have done most of the hard work. I only have to choose the colour scheme for the card and put them all together. I have stamped out the birthday numbers 18.21,30.40, 50 and 60. I have decorated in 3 different colourways suitable for both men and women. Once I finished them I want to do cards with numbers for children with some added children stamps. I think I might try and have ago tonight

I did the blog below last week and some how lost the content. Well I found it today so I thought I better post it. So here is this weeks episode. Great news I have sold another card on etsy this is the second one. It has made me pull my finger out and produce more cards. Over the week end I think I have got through a whole pot of gold embossing and silver and black glitter. Today I will continue with glitter but using various other colours. I have to do all my card making on our dinning room table with a very heavy duty cover. Today one end of it, is me crafting and at the other, my eldest daughter is doing her dissertation, choaking on glitter dust. So I am off holding my trusty tube of glue in one hand in the other you've guest it my tub of glitter.

Welcome to my blog. I recently started up cardsespecially4you on the back of me making cards for friends and family. I started making cards a couple of years ago as I needed something to fill my day as I am disabled with limited mobility. Any way I have been encouraged to make more cards and sell them. I have been to a couple of table top sales at my local hospital and sold nearly all of the cards. I thought I might try a website and this blogg. I know nothing about blogging. So I will go with the flow and see if I can improve it as I go. I've only got 4 cards on my site, even so please visit it.
