Rose Red in Purple and Jade


Update on the craft fairs at the weekend, sold lots on Saturday and had a really good day. Had a lovely day on Sunday, one of my favourite fairs but unfortunately not as well attended as last time I did it. Sold several items though so had a fair day and had a very nice time chatting to friends. Had some lovely compliments about my cards and lovely chats with several interested ladies both days. Thankfully the back held up but still having the muscle rub on at nights and taking painkillers.
