I hope you all had a good week last week. So sorry I didn't get chance to post anything for you to play "spot the heart" with. It was very "full on" in the House of Hearts with wedding stationery needing to be finished for collection, orders to complete and samples needed for the wedding fayre which I did with my lovely Sis on Sunday.
It was a fabulous day on Sunday .. .. much to my surprise! As I woke it was throwing it down with rain and my heart sank thinking it would mean a poor turn out. But I was wrong. I met more "happy couples" this time than I have at any wedding fayre previous and I even came away with requests for samples and then once I arrived home more interested couples got in touch during the evening and yesterday .. .. I think 2014 and 2015 are going to be busy years on the wedding front judging by the interest already being shown.
I always seem to struggle to "stop" making new samples as my head is just full to bursting with new designs and colour combinations .. .. and for some reason I never feel I have enough .. .. until I try to fit them all on my table! Then I realise I have plenty and wonder why I worked until midnight the night before creating more .. .. and why I got up at "daft o'clock" to make "just one more". LOL!!
Yesterday was spent ordering materials for samples, answering emails and trying to put the house back in order. Every room in the house had been taken over with samples, machines, and crafty stash .. . apart from the bathroom. That was the only safe haven. Even the kitchen had embossing machines and guillotines lined up on the work tops. The perfect height for me to work on!
So there I was thinking I would be catching up with a few much needed "general makes" this week but instead I have two new "happy couples" who saw my work at previous wedding fayres who want to discuss their wedding stationery, samples to make for people I met on Sunday and a table plan to put together for a couple whose journey with me has nearly ended :-(
Just cleared all the ironing so next on the list is the table plan.
But before I go, just so you have a heart to find, I will share one of the cards I made to showcase the free gift from Quick Cards Made Easy this month (Issue 119). The gift is a gorgeous Christmas stamp, vellum and a snowflake embossing board. I just love the stamp and did another sample with it embossed in silver!! I will definitely be using it on my Christmas makes this year!
and here are some of the other fabby makes inside too from myself and other designers:
If you buy the magazine and use the free gift then the magazine would love to see what you do with it. There is a special email address to send your pictures to on page 7.
So there we go. Now you know what is happening in the House of Hearts and where I have been and what I have been up to. All super exciting!!!
Can you believe it has taken me two days to write this post! LOL!!!!
Have a good day everyone. I hope it is a good one for you.
