Sue & Byron's Garden Sale in aid of Dogs for the Disabled

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are well???  I mentioned on Saturday that I would let you know how I got on at the Sale we did in aid of Dogs for the Disabled.  It was an amazing day, and the weather kept fine, even better than fine it was even warm.


As you can see from my photograph, I sold the cards and my Mum made and sold her jewellery, which I think is amazing.  The ones in the white boxes are all proper gemstones, for example there was an Emerald and an Aquamarine necklace and earrings.  Lovely.


Now, I have to mention the garden that we were in.  It belongs to Sue and Byron, now they are both wheelchair bound, and they both have a dog for the disabled to help them.  The garden is amazing as you can see from my photo's (well I hope you can).  From the Sale they made around £1300, what a good sum and a fantastic Charity.


Well, I'm going to do another sale on Sunday, it's all happening and I sold so many of my cards that I'm going to have to make some more.

Bye

P.S. Some of the Photo's were take at the end of the sale, that's why some of the baskets are half empty.

Life on the Ocean Wave!!!

Hi Everyone,

Well!!!  The Weather here has finally turned to rain.  Which is very annoying for my Mum's and mine Craft Fair tomorrow, well, it's not so much as a craft fair, as I have been invited by two very lovely friends of ours to set up a stall in their garden as they are opening it up for 4 hours supporting Dogs for the Disabled.  I'm going to sell my Cards and my Mum's going to be selling her Jewellery (of which I want all of it!!!).  I will post some photo's (if the weather says good) tomorrow, that's if you are interested. 

Anyway, I thought of doing a card with the sea in the centre, so here it is:
