WOYWW...

Phew it's Wednesday again!....where do the other days in between go?

My weeks seem to fly by and every one seems to be pretty manic.  This week I have...
  • Had a table at Marton Craft Fair on Saturday with much older sister Jo and her daughter Maxine [pics below].
  • Been treated to tea out and a night at the theatre in Shrewsbury on Sunday by that much older sister of mine.  We went to see Greg Davies...very funny.  Thanks Jo.
  • Had a FUNDAY Monday with just Jo this week....we talked over ways to sell our hand made crafts and made a display of them in my sewing room for my customers to see.

  • I opened up a Facebook page for our shop to try to advertise it more....if you would like to check it out and maybe 'like' it for us I would be really grateful.  I'm pretty new to it all but it does say we need 30 likes before we can move on to the next step [I think!  :-) ]   Click on this link.  Sorry if this is advertising Julia....we just want to be 'liked'.  :-)
  • I had a munchkin day with my gorgeous twin Grandchildren yesterday....much a fun time was had by all... so today I will be playing catch up with my sewing jobs.
So what is on my desk today I hear you shout....


My latest batch of quick Christmas cards I have made.....yes just a bit of simple paper craft ones this time.


And my latest parcel of gorgeous new wool rovings I have bought from Sara.  What yummy colours they are too....have a feeling I will need to stroke these a while before I will be using them  :-)





That's about it from me for today.  I will do my best to call by to visit all who leave me comments in between my sewing jobs.  Thanks for calling by and I really hope you all have a great week.
Hugs,
Annie x

Your little craft display looks good - I am sure your customers will find something they would like to buy! Those rovings look good enough to eat - such fab colours. x Jo

Neet said...

At last! Got to you before you got to me!
Lovely to hear you have been having a delightful social time, must be nice to have a sister to share things with.

Gorgeous rovings, forgot to show mine that I bought at weekend - now I must get roving, or should I say, Dumfing!

Happy WOYWW Annie

Love

Hope the Facebook page goes well! Craft fairs are always a bit hit and miss, especially in these financial times....
Love the wool rovings - bright colours to cheer up this dull grey November morning!

You have had a great week. I wish I could get my head round Facebook but just don't understand it!

JoZart said...

Well it really won't be hard to say we "like" YOU!!! Love all your crafty goods, such a great display and I think you should get on etsy. I'm told it is quite easy. I call rovings "tops" and I met someone at a workshop that also calls them tops. I thought it was just me.
glad to see you venturing into papercrafts with your lovely cards!
love Jo x
Excited with collywobbles waiting to go to the airport later! Yeah!

JoZart said...

I meant to say that I'll do you some gingerbread men when I get back. The children can colour in plain ones and patterned ones make super bunting.

Helen said...

The craft table looks fab... am off to "like you" now!! Oh my that wool looks scrummy! Helen, 8

Ann B said...

I have 'liked' (how could anyone not like you and your 'older' sister), have also 'shared' so you may get a few more likes as well.
Love the rovings, beautiful colours and well done on making so many Christmas cards, my first one has yet to hit the desk.

Julia Dunnit said...

That table display is a great idea..can I be really cheeky and bossy and suggest that you put little price tags in front of each thing..like the Christmas Crafts sign (but smaller!). Lots of your customers will look but not instantly twig that they're for sale or be a bit shy to pick up and ponder...pricing up front delivers the sale message and that
encourages a proper look and once it's picked up...sold!! This is based entirely on my own experience in the shop and market environment...and my own frustration at not being able to see a price before I get excited about something!!

Rita said...

Annie, your selection of crafts is fantastic. I love the look of that wool too. Have a good Day. Hugs Rita xx

Kate said...

You sound as busy as ever. Do I spy a purple monkey on your stall???

triciasconfetti said...

Your are already 'liked' Annie, and hopefully you will get the required 100 to move you the scale - what ever that is. Your little cards look good. If I try and do simple cards like that they never turn out as well as yours. Happy days.

ellie said...

love your craft stall-you have a great variety of things-they all look beautiful- we find that smaller things sell better for stocking fillers etc-also our stall was raising money for our boys christian school so we probably got some support because of that-hopefully you'll do better at the next one,ellie xx

Thanks for your kind comments..Francesca #72

butterfly said...

Sounds like you've had a lovely week... and the craft stall looks fantastic! I'm sure Julia won't hold it against you that you want to be liked - and I would "like" you, only I'm afraid I'm one of the Facebook refuseniks - holding out by the skin of my teeth... If I give in, I'll be sure to "like" you straight away!! Thanks for your visit and happy WOYWW!

scrappymo! said...

Your booth looks lovely. Not realy a facebook person but I'm sure you will be at your required #'s quite quickly!
I think you have the right blance in height and type on your booth so should do well. I agree with Julia about the price tages though. I like to look and not paw through someones display. It makes a lot of work for you to rearrange everyhting after the lookyloo's.

pearshapedcrafting said...

Oooh! Lovely things here! I would love to "like" you but I don't know much about facebook. Of course if ever I do join the throng I will like you straight away - meanwhile good luck reaching your target! Chrisx

Lou said...

Wow what a busy week youve had, loving those wools, they are very pretty. Im not a knitter so would just be stroking them for a long time :)

okienurse said...

busy, busy, busy again! Love the display of goodies and all the cards and rovings. I was talking with DD about doing felting and she told me to back away from the counter I had too many things on my plate. Maybe when I get a bigger craft room and more space. I liked you on FB! Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving such a nice comment. Have a great week! Vickie #3

butlersabroad said...

Those wool rovings are beautiful Wipso, lovely colours and I bet they're incredibly strokeable too! I'll pop over the facebook and like you when I remember! I'm not on there much these days. Pity the craft fair wasn't well subscribed, your stall looked lovely.

Monica said...

Your crafts are splendid and so very English. i mean that in a positive way as they are adorable without being fussy and commercial and as an e brit anything made of wool is so superior to anything seen here at craft shows, the cock was especially magnificent, as was the doll with blond hair.(in an earlier post).

Anne said...

Sounds like you have had a great time Annie. The display looks very appealing. Super cards and the rovings are such lovely colours. Happy WOYWW Anne x #124

Anne said...

PS forgot to say that will be off to like you officially :-) A x

mamapez5 said...

Your display looks beautiful. I do love those bears. I wish you all the luck in the world with your efforts to sell your goods. I was so disappointed for you after the fair at the weekend. We have the same trouble here. I have a sale tomorrow but that is only for my mincepies, and next week is our village art and craft group Christmas expo, but last year none of sold very much. It's still a good day with a group of friends.
I will do the facebook 'like' as soon as I can, but I must visit a few desks tonight before I fall asleep at the computer. Kate x

Love the crimbo cards, I am so trying to be christmasy but not getting very far at the moment, not one xmas card made yet EEK!!! Happy Woyww :-)

Lovely wool for dumfing on your desk. I would just want to stroke that and not use it!
