"Oldie for Friday"

Hello everyone, can you believe it  ... it`s Friday "again" how did that happen!!!
The weeks are fairly whizzing by.
Hazel has taken a Sales Table at Beth`s school Fundraiser.  I offered to make a few of the Three Wise Men t-lights holders for her.  I am busy but it is with things you have already seen.  Nothing to show you for a few days I feel  ....  mind you with me you never can tell!!!
Anyway here is my "Oldie for Friday" started by Erika over at:-
http://snappycrafts.blogspot.co.uk/
It does not have to be cards, anything you have crafted yourself is what is wanted.  Go rummage through your files I am sure there is something you can show  ... just think, that post you had ready to share will do for another day.  It`s a "win, win" situation.
Here is mine:-

A Gift Bag using SB Grand Labels One

That`s it 
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate you calling by

"Up-cycling"

Hello Blog friends, followers and poppers by.  Thank you so much for taking time to call by to see what I have on offer.  An extra BIG thank you to those of you who do not have an "active" Blog so I can return the favour of a comment.  I really love that you still leave me comments which I do appreciate.
WELL!!! what about this horrible weather???  This is the time of year I go into "hibernation" I do not go out unless it is absolutely necessary.  The one good thing about it is I find more time to "play".  Once all the House Duties are done it is all Me Time!!!
Boys here after school yesterday, snacks their first thought when they come through the door.. Thomas has school dinners and although Mirriam the Dinner Lady always gives him the first offer of seconds Thomas is always hungry.  Anyway after the usual round of snacks and slice of cake Robert spotted a tub of Pringles which was almost finished  ... it was finished by the time they went home.  John spotted the tub and said "now there`s a thing I am sure you could do something with".  "Actually one of those Candle Bundles you sell would fit in there nicely and make pretty gift".  
You know me always up for a challenge so here is the result:-


Sorry about the picture it is so dark here today.
For a Sales Table Hazel and I bundle 3 candles, tie with nice ribbon, they sell very well.   
I think I would do 4 if I was popping them in the Tub.

Pringles Tub
Pretty Paper
Lace, Ribbon and some Bling on a String.
 
Off to see if there are any more tubs of Pringles in the cupboard.
 
Thank you for your visit, I really do appreciate it
Till next time

"Successful Day"

Hello Blog friends, followers plus anyone who pressed the wrong button and just happen to land here.  You are all most welcome.  I do hope you can stop a while to see what I get up to.

Yesterday I spent most of the day along at the Village where our Grandsons live and go to School.   The school were holding a Soup & Sandwich Fundraiser in the Village Hall.
There are only 14 pupils in the school, they need to hire a Bus for their Skiing Trip in the New Year. 
Audrey decided they had to do something to raise the money.  She came up with Soup & Sandwich idea and just got on with organising it.   It was all hands on deck from the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and whoever!!!  Saturday she was panicking that no one would come because of the shocking weather.  Weather was still shocking yesterday, believe it or not they had to put out extra tables & chairs....!!!
Hall all set out beautifully (all the pictures I took were way out of focus) there were 8 Sales Tables round the room.  We all seemed to do OK, I did fine and sold lots.  I sold most of the T-Light Holders I had made, took orders for some made with Sue Wilson`s Three Wise Men Striplet Die like these:-

I had made some all white or all black, they sold really well.  The best sellers were the ones that I cut out the "Three Wise Men" in opposite colours and attached.  See the one on the "left" above.

I sold most of the T-Light Holders I showed in my Posts last week.

 Also sold a few of these:-
And these:-

The money Hazel and I raise from the sale of the Pendants goes to the Chemo Unit where she had her Treatments.
 That`s it for today.
Once the house jobs are done I will tidy away some of yesterdays things, then start on the orders. 
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate that you take time to comment
Till next time
