Happy Tuesday. I hope everyone is having a good day. Certainly a cold start! Mr Heart had to scrape his car down before he could leave for work this morning!
At this rate I am going to become known as the teeny, tiny Tuesday blog!! Thankfully I had this little number ready and waiting. Talk about life in the fast lane!!!

So .. .. now to The House of Hearts up-date.
As you know we did a wedding fayre on Sunday. Gosh it was busy .. .. and there was lots of interest and lots of lovely couples to meet.
I spent all the day before doing some new samples and packing away in readiness, thinking that all the mess everywhere didn't matter. I could clear it all up Monday .. .. as normally the day after a fayre is the calm after the storm and the clear up campaign day for hiding away all the lights, easels, stands, boxes etc.
But not this time!
Enquiries started coming in Sunday night and yesterday .. .. so it has been a case of hitting the ground running.
But the weirdest thing is that two of the invitations I made on Saturday were ultra popular. Normally I make a full range of items and display them as a collection .. .. but I only had chance to make a day and evening invitation for this collection and was tempted to leave them at home. I didn't, but because I was disappointed at there only being two items in the collection I put them towards the back of the display .. .. but they were the invitations everyone fell in love with and got the most attention!! How weird! I just couldn't believe how many people loved them. I will definitely be completing the range more fully ready for the next fayre in February.
We only have an hour to set up which sounds ages .. .. but really it isn't.
No time for a quick coffee before folks arrived this time .. .. and no time for photographs! Busy, busy, busy all day long. Clearly all your good wishes for a successful fayre worked their magic! Thank you everyone you are very kind.
So that is me! Time now to slurp some soup and then make more samples for an interested couple and then I really do have to do that clear up campaign because a new bride has made an appointment for tomorrow. Perhaps that is why I didn't store my table plans away - because they all need to come out again for tomorrow! Shame I carried them up-stairs really LOL!!
Thank goodness I had this post ready and just needing the up-date adding.
Enjoy the rest of the day everyone and once again I have to apologise for my lack of blog visiting. Such a shame I have to waste time sleeping!! LOL!!
One day I will catch up.
