Crafty Bits and Hair Grips

I've managed to cram in a quick mini card for this week's LIM challenge 3-2-1, this grey bank holiday Monday.  I used one of my oldest stamps (Penny Black) and one that's rarely used.   Simply paper pieced with scraps from my stash and paired with a Woodware sentiment, job's a good 'un.



Three birdhouses, two layers, one sentiment.


I'm now in full crafting mode in order to produce a stall full of stocking fillers for this year's village Xmas Craft Fair in December.  I recently decorated these hairgrips with felt flowers hoping they will sell.  Any feedback would be appreciated.... don't be polite, it's all about making money for St Catherine's Hospice who cared for Mum so wonderfully.

 
I would have modelled them myself but I'm looking dog rough following two night shifts!  Prudy obviously missed me on nights as she accompanied me to the craft room and surveyed the local comings and goings whilst I crafted.

 
No doubt I won't see her arse for dust now, as the hoover is about to make an appearance.


ttfn,

  1. I can't believe you could ever look dog rough, you crazy woman! Those hair slides are totally gorgeous and so's your beautiful card. Give Prudy a big cuddle from me, I get traumatised over the mere thought of a hoover! xxx

  2. I think they will sell well.
    Can I have a stall? Does all the money go to the charity or do you just give yours to it?

    Hope you are keeping well ducks

  6. Love the card Fiona, it's the kind of card I would buy in a shop as I love the clean and simple look! Hope you've recovered a bit from the night shifts and I remember only too well how that feels.

    The flower hair clips are really pretty and if you don't mind me saying, may be alternating colours would be great for all of them, perhaps a bit more punch would be eye catching? I also heard from someone who did a craft fair last year that gift tags, kraft style, simply stamped, string, folksy if you know what I mean, sold very well but I suppose it depends on the customers?

  13. Thanks so much for visiting my blog :) I love the layout of your card and those birdhouses are so cute. I like how you've layered one of them to give it more dimension. The hair clips look lovely and bright too, so I think they will sell. I wish you lots of luck in your preparations for the fayre, and on the day itself.
