Bah humbug!

Problems with Paypal have prevented me getting anything into the shop. I can see our pre-Christmas sales disappearing! Oh well, it’s been over two weeks since my last blog entry so I’ll get on with it… sounds like a confession!

On November 17th there was another Cr’after Dark session at The City Gate Inn in Exeter.  “CrochPoster for Craft Faireted Christmas Decorations” are obviously not my thing, and having had too much wine beforehand with my friend Nat, I have to admit that I struggled!  My poor friend George, who had driven over from Stokeinteignhead, and is a master crocheter, ended up trying to teach Nat and myself how to do it as the instructor was flat out because the place was heaving!  It’s proving to be a very popular night out. Well done to Pip and the gang for all the effort they put in. Let’s hope that the December 12th Fair in Topsham is just as busy.

Yesterday our lovely photographer friend Mike Evans spent the day here doing our website photo shoot.  A far cry from our lame attempt at photography, he was in and out with lights and gadgets and lenses creating fantastic shots. I got to utilise my massive hoard of junk shop buys to use as props, our friend Helene made up a beautiful bunch of flowers and a good time was had by all (I hope?). Watch this space for the results… should get the disc on Tuesday.

Another hectic week lies ahead, with a cupboard to finish painting that’s heading off to Tavistock on Thursday. Some craft orders to make from an evening I did at a neighbour’s on Wednesday, A Pampered Chef lunch at my house on Thursday, and my other half’s 40th birthday celebration on Friday! On Sunday Blue is having her Charity Arts & Crafts open day in Teignmouth and I still have to get some things in our online shop!  The next time I blog I will be the proud owner of gorgeous Peagreen photos….
