My very first craft fair is this Saturday and have been making a variety of things and its been a rough few weeks !! last week i went down with a chesty virusey thing only had swine flu 6 weeks ago.. too much !! also on Saturday early am Ben had a massive grand mall seizure it was very frightening and i had to call 999 ... he hasn't had one this bad for years he,s fine now thankfully, Ben has had them since he was about two and is also autisic
Today i feel much better and need to get on with pricing my goodies i find that difficult ....not everyone gets " homemade " and compare prices to the mass produced market
I,m so much better at giving away than selling ! also my computer is playing up PC Doc says its the hard drive or motherboard eek !! sounds expensive ..
I will take pictures of my stall .... it may be the only one i do ! i,m doing a mix of knits and crochet and some craft items i have to many of !! and candles in tea cups need to make them today
Thats it from a wet Cornwall
