October news at Crafty Gifts & Cards

Well, the time has flown and another month has whizzed by under my nose..!!
There's been lots going on here at CG&Cs HQ in preparation for Christmas & the booked craft fairs.
I had a little flurry of sales so I'll be spending most of my half term break making some more plus I've sold all of my Xmas buntings too so I spent much of yesterday making more of them. 
Happy days - I love being able to have more time in my little craft room (aka the box room).

The Crochet Class course ended last Tuesday & my lovely crochet crowd, all 5 of them were sad to see it end - as was I. I'm glad to say we've decided to have an 'old school' style reunion class in the new year. Every five or six weeks we're going to have a class donated entirely to seeing how everyone has been doing with their projects, if anyone needs advice & help or even trying out more advanced stitches. I'm delighted to say that there have been photos, texts & chat already and everyone is making something fab..!! 
Keep it up girls - you can all crochet now so put it to good use....

All busy....

On a personal note - thanks to all the ladies for putting such great feedback on my page
I'm please to say that my next course in January is already fully booked but if interest continues, I'll do another a little later in the year.

As I mentioned above, I'm booked into three craft fairs over the coming weeks. Neath, Glynneath & Cwmaman. I may get one or two more as the festive season gets closer but I'm not too bothered if I don't. Craft fairs are not like they used to be in my local area and people are spending less. Add this to the rising price of petrol & stall fees and you have to sell a lot of goods to just break even...

Stalls from various events

Time to sign off now. I'm hoping to do another blog post soon so watch this space...
Take care all.
