Happy Campers

Yesterday I was selling at the hospital shop. It wasn't my usual day but I got in on a cancellation. I normally share the shop with two others but was on my own yesterday. I couldn't believe how much I sold, loads of cards and gifts. I sold all my wooden boxes and many other gifts. I surpassed my previous best day's sales by a lot. I have my next craft fair next Saturday and then my usual hospital stall the following Monday so I will need to restock quickly.

So onto my card which is another of the sample cards I made for Stamposaurus, so if you are at one of the craft shows coming up you may spot this on the stand. I paper pieced the tent and used Copics to colour the rest of the image. The papers are Crate Paper Farmer's market, ribbon from the new festival range at Crafty Ribbons and the butterflies were made with a Crafts Too die with tiny pearls added.

Papertake anything goes

I have a small gap in my craft room since I bought some 12" drawer storage from Hobbycraft and after looking everywhere have finally found a unit to fit. I found lots which were 1" too wide or very small but this one is perfect. I am off to collect it today, not sure what is going in it yet but it looks like a bit more of a craft room move around of stash. I do love organisation.
