Craft Fair

Hel Friends

Nice to see you again.


My Table
Some people went to Yarndale, in Skipton, on Saturday.
I would have loved to have gone but I was at a craft fair instead. I had a stall and L was also given a small table. We were in a very large Scout hall that was filled with beautifully hand crafted items, but it was away from the town/village centre and didn't get as many visitors as we would have liked.  I sold one baby blanket to a dog lover and a card purse.

L's small table before the move to a larger one
L and her friend also L did very well. They make new jewellery from old and unwanted jewellery that has been donated or picked up from car boots.
 The girls started of on a small table and because a bigger stall holder hadn't turn up they moved over and spread out their stock. During the day they made named keyrings whilst the customer waited.  I feel so very proud of them. The girls have decided that they will do another stall at their school Christmas Fair later in the year. I'll won't be doing one; my stock just wouldn't be appropriate.

Today M and I would like to wish L a very happy 14th Birthday. I asked her what she would like for tea today. Small pizza and curly fries and a cupcake/muffin. So that's what we are having. At half term we are planning a sleepover with a couple of friends where she is planning to do a makeover for each other, then a meal out at Weatherspoons followed by dvd films in her room with snacks.

I'm off the River Wyre to see if I can collect some damsons. I'll let you know how I get on.

See you soon.

  4. Hi Carol it's FM here, my blog has moved to: www.frugalmummy.blogspot.co.uk
    Can I ask you to publicise this please as something horrid has happened and I can't access any of my old blog or the last four years' worth of blogs - aaargh!! This means I can't find my list of 400+ follwers either, unless they have commented. Many thanks, FM xxxxx

Scamming Season

 Last week I was almost caught by a scammer on email and I thought I would share my experience with you so that you too don't get caught...
