The email comes tonight asking for 200 cards!! 3 Different designs. All great. Still with me??
I go into my craft room to start and then realise I can't remember what the cards look like!!! Some silly person (me!) didn't photograph the cards before taking them and leaving them!! So now I have to wait until after school tomorrow to go and retrieve them!
Wonder if I'll learn my lesson and not do it again!

For your delights today I'm showing you some notepads I made for an order. The lady who ordered them is a lovely lady and great friend. It is her daughters birthdays tomorrow. Each year for their birthday or christmas she orders notepads and magnetic shopping pads as stocking fillers for them. So, by putting them on my blog I can easily look back next year to see what I have already done!! She also ordered some for other people for Christmas so you'll have to wait till after that to see them just in case they stumble on the blog LOL.
Kirsteen doesn't really like girly pink stuff so these are what I designed. The notepads at the top are inspired by a notepad my SU demo gave me once. The magnetic notepad uses the SU circles stamps - I've been dying to use them!

I found a few of my crafts and have edited them so now I have a small stock to feed you with over the next week or so. See I can be nice sometimes! LOL
The first photo is my version of storing my nesties. I'm getting quite addicted to these things. In my defence I do use them a lot for different cards etc I've stored them in a wee 6x6 album that has page protectors in. This one came from a Heidi Swapp kit from Costco the other year. I cut some cardstock into 6x6, added a strip of strong magnetic tape and then added the names of the sets. Just have to find time to decorate the front now. I find it really easy to use!
The second photo is of my stall at the recent Church Ladies Night. It was a fabulous night with chocolate fountains and wine. There was a fabulous selection of stalls.
The SABP family fair on Saturday was fantastic. Plenty of people through the door, all in the mood for spending too! My children's school table that I helped make the things for did well too. I'm looking forward to hearing how much money SABP raised. It seems as though it may be a lot of money!
The last photo is of a card similar to the one I showed in the last post - just changed the colours a little. I must put this with an envelope and prepare it for sale!

I've signed up for an online course by shimelle called 'blogging for scrapbookers' The aim is to improve my blogging and maybe even more frequently!! No promises though! It started today - have a look here if you're interested. This is the 3rd or 4th class of Shimelle's I've done. I can't wait for the Journal Your Christmas one to start again.
The snowman soup went too. I had a major panic over the mini white marshmallows for replacements though. After hunting everywhere I found that our local sweetie shop had them. I bought 200g and was as happy as anything. I used them up and went back to get some more to find she had sold out!! Panic again! I found a 1kg bag online so was happy, but wasn't sure it would get here on time due to all these postal strikes. So I bit the bullet and joined Bookers cash & carry. What a result! The same 1kg bag but even cheaper! So, I've half used that one and the other bag still hasn't arrived.
Just the one card to show you today. My neighbour recently came back from seeing her daughter in America and brought me some Papertrey Ink stamps! I've wanted some of these for ages but the postage to the UK is extremely high. I'm sure if they brought their postage rates down they would make a fortune over here!
