Augusts Over Here's to a better September

Well August has been the most emotional month i've had for a while. With the sad loss of my Nan along with poor sales made for a very bad month for me. As well as a not very profitable craft fair at the end of the month it's now time to dust myself down and start all over in September.

I was unable to take part in the list an item a day challenge in August on Folksy.com due to all the things happening in my personal life, but I intend to take part in the September Challenge. Think its been decided that we are calling ourselves 'September Stars' so be sure to pop over to Folksy.com and check out all the wonderful talented crafts people and their wonderful wares.

As well as this i will be making sure i am organised for the craft fair that i shall be attending on the 25th September at the Masonic Hall, Linlithgow. May only be September but have already started planning and making christmas cards.

Received Today!! Mystery Parcel giveaway prize

I entered a giveaway a little while ago with Dottie Designs for a mystery parcel. Well the postie tried to deliver it on Friday but wasn't at home and he couldn't fit it through the letterbox...OH was working Saturday so had the car so couldn't go and get it.

Been to the post office this morning to collect my parcel and oh my goodness what a surprise when i opened it, the box was full of wonderful items.

So a big thank you to Dottie Designs for my wonderful Mystery Parcel.

My 11 year old daughter has been eyeing it up too, so no doubt later on she'll be creeping round my asking if she can have some.

Time to get back on track

After having a bad month or so it is now time to get myself and my business back on track. Have had my week away and very sadly laid my Nan to rest (RIP Nan - loving you always).

This is now a very crucial part of my year as it is the build up to the christmas period. And I am now getting myself geared up to make lots of handmade christmas cards and papercrafted gifts for the 4 craft fairs that i have left to do this year and also for my website and my folksy shop.

Am also looking for other outlets to possibly sell my cards in, whether that be other online mediums or if i could be lucky enough to find a couple of small shops that would be interested in displaying them. Lots of work to be done and so little time to do it.

So all i can say is look out world here comes Clairez Cardz.
