"Craft Fair Goodies"

Hello fellow Bloggers and Crafty Friends.  Hope you are all well.
Thank, you for popping by, at least I am here with something today.  Sorry I have been missing, very busy here at "The Homestead"  
I would like to welcome my new followers, sorry the welcome is a bit late.  Better late than never as they say!!!  Thank you for choosing to follow me, I do hope I can give you some inspiration and maybe a few ideas.  Please keep popping in I love to have visitors.
John and Audrey had said they would be at our house Wednesday evening to pick the boys up on their way home from London at approx 7.30/8pm.   I could see Thomas, a terrible worrier for a boy of 9 years old getting a bit agitated.  I had to check that their flight had arrived in Edinburgh on time.   He was worried about his mum and dad, when they phoned to tell us they were just a few miles along the road, the relief on his face was amazing.  
We got to see the O.B.E all shining in its silk lined box.  Boys went away home very excited and Oh! Boy! did we miss them this morning, the house was so quite.  
I do have some photos on my iPad that I will show you once I get instructions from Hazel as to how to get them on my Blog.  Talk about "stupid" well that`s  me.  If Thomas had still been here I am sure he would have been able to tell me.
Hazel and I said we were not doing any Craft Fairs this year......however!!!  Elaine is having a little Craft Fair at the Tearoom on Sunday.  It is to help raise money for a Trip to France for her Grandsons class at Perth Grammar School.  Certainly could not refuse to do that one.
I have made lots of Origami Boxes, other Boxes, Wallets to hold a bar of Chocolate (last years big makes).   We have a few pendants and other necklaces as well, we will see how it all goes. 

Here are few Triangular Boxes I made up today.
I have filled them with Roses Chocolates from one of the big tins.
I hope to make some Tablet and Truffles for some of the other Boxes.
The boxes are from Fabulous Giftware CD by KatySueDesigns
Printed onto Neenah Card from Crafters Companion

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in and for all the lovely comments you leave, I really appreciate it
Till next time

  25. Hi Patricia,
    Great boxes, don't think they will be around long on your stall. Hope it all goes well.

  26. Hello Patricia, and thank you for calling in at my blog! I always enjoy meeting new cardmaking bloggers. Joined as your newest follower and will try to get back frequently to enjoy your blog. I'm loving those intricate looking triangle boxes you shared today. Read your post & your profile, and it sounds as though you do something so worthwhile with this hobby. I think crafters are among the most generous & sharing of people I've ever met (quilters were the same!). I've enjoyed my foray into blogging, and people have been so encouraging & helpful. Have a great weekend, and I'm off to enjoy some of the other goodies you have posted. Hugs

  27. Hi Patricia,

    Pretty boxes and truffles, my favourite, what a dream. Hope Sunday goes well for you and you make loads of money.

    Much love,

    Shirley T. xxx

  28. Morning Patricia, I'll bet you are so, so proud of John Jnr, it must have been such a special occasion for them both, shame you couldn't all have been there to see it.
    Your boxes look fabulous and complete with choccies, they won't last long at your craft fair.
    I just finished doing the notelet set from the same CD and it is so effective, I love it. The only down-side was that my printer won't print onto card, so Graham tried on his and it worked, but as he is at work all day, don't want to be constantly asking him to do these printouts for me ha ha, he doesn't mind but I much prefer doing it myself, so will have to have a 'teach in' on how to use his PC ha ha.
    I couldn't access your Blog to comment yesterday, it kept coming up as an Error, grrr, these are brilliant when they work and an absolute pain when they don't ha ha. Thankfully the gremlins have now gone. Have a good weekend.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  29. Morning sweetie, this is just gorgeous, have a great Saturday, big hugs love Pops x

  30. You must be one very proud lady Patricia! I love your triangle boxes filled full of yummy chocolates, I bet they will sell very quickly indeed. Hugs, Anne x

  31. Gorgeous boxes, I have this CD but haven't yet had a chance to play with they'll be a big seller! Carole Z` xx

  32. Great boxes Patricia, they look very sellable (is that a word?)

    Congrats to your son on his OBE, you must be very proud of him.
