Still plodding on

Good morning all.No card again today but there will be one tomorrow ;D
So i`m still here.The gloss work is done and looks like the one coat will be enough, fingers crossed.It took an absolute age to dry and meant my curtains couldn`t be popped back up last night so i had to pop bin bags over the window and we popped the dehumidifier on to try and dry it out, so i`ve woken with a gloss headache.Today i plan on doing the ceiling and then i can start papering, then it will be time to start all over again in the kitchen which is only small thank goodness.
My craft fair went ok yesterday, i only sold a very small ammount of cards but i sold some of stash so that made up for the lack of card sales.
I hope you are all well.I am seeiing your cards just not having time to comment at the mo and that really bugs me as i love to visit you all.
Anyhow i will see you in the morning with a card.Have fun all :D

Hope the headache eases, someone once told me to sit bowls of water around when painting and it helps the fumes to disappear x

Looks like things are going as planned at home , but decorating is always tiresome , sorry you have a gloss headache I hate the smell and always get ill with it .
Sorry also for your lack of sales I can only say the people there must be nuts because your cards are all amazing . Take care don't work too hard , Big Hugs Elaine

Hi Nic

Ceilings are not for me I can't do them, I hope the headache goes,
I did a craft fair on Saturday I took a fair bit but not on my cards more on the tatting side and a big show yesterday, where I did a tatting demo, I made some sales but of course we always want to take more. There's not a lot of money around at the moment. But at least you did sell some, some of the craft fairs I have been to, there are people there who have not sold anything for weeks , a little is better than none

Congrats on selling some cards!
Sometimes life gets in the way and you can't do as much crafting as you want too so don't worry.
Hugs, Kelly xxx

Glad your craft went well this time. You've got more energy than me to paint a ceiling in one day!

Hope the decorating is gong well!
Just wondered if you had any suggestions for stamps / images suitable to sporty teenage boys? It's nearly my sons birthday - and I'm struggling to find anything suitable. Thanks Sara
