"Silver Wedding Wishes"

Hello there Blog Friends, hope you are all managing to keep warm.  Blooming freezing here that`s for sure.  My thoughts go to anyone who gets trapped in these freezing conditions.  We were hoping to get down to Harrogate on Thursday, will have to follow the weather reports before we decide to take off.    Plenty of Fleece Blankets in the car I think.
Thank you for taking time to pop in to have a look at what I have been up to.
Still rather busy here with Pendant Orders.  Every time my iPad "Pings" John says "Oh! Patricia another order has just pinged in"!!!!   It`s a real Feel Good Busy I have to admit.  Only problem is getting the beads, I am waiting for a big order coming.  Just hope they are as nice as they look on the computer screen.

I am also helping Elaine get Craft Workshops/Seminars set up in the space she has across the courtyard from her Tearoom.  I have said will do a couple of Card Making classes to get her started.  I really do not want to do it all the time.  Been there, Done that, and not in any hurry to go there again.  It is a wonderful space ideal for any kind of Workshop.  Elaine just wants to try and cover the rent she has to pay on the space.   The Tearoom did far more than they expected in it`s first week.  They are all over the moon with people`s comments and also how some have come back.  It has a great atmosphere, Elaine and her daughter are just great at running it.  They even had me on washing dishes yesterday they were so busy.  Managed to sell quite a few pieces out of my cabinet during the week which I am real happy about.

Today`s card is another for Hazel, it is for someone she meets at the school where the girls go.   This person had told Hazel it was her Silver Wedding, she said it would not really be celebrated.  So Hazel being Hazel said you cant let an occasion like that go by without some acknowledgement.

  7. Good morning Patricia

    You sound nice and excitedly busy . .. . it is a lovely feeling knowing that people appreciate your creativity enough to purchase what you make isn't it!

    The tea room sounds a wonderful place .. .. and is probably somewhere that people are not in a hurry to leave! Especially in this cold weather.

    Having said that it feels quite mild here this morning.

    Loving your card by the way. Beautiful colour combo and a great shape.

    Have a good day.

    Love Jules xx
