Get a cup of coffee or tea, to keep awake!!
A lot of text I am afraid!!
There are a few changes for my crafting life,
One decision was very difficult, which was to step
down from the fabulous Winter Wonderland Design Team.
I had been on the team for 4 1/2 years.
Since my first card appeared on the their blog,
on 2nd January 2015!!
So I thought it was time for a change!
What actually prompted me to step down now, is
that I have joined forces with my friend Lorraine.
I have been tutoring her for around a year.
She has got to the stage now, that she
has reached selling quality. I was happy to join with her
on the selling side. She is very much a perfectionist,
as I also try to be.
Along with the similar sense of humour!!
We always have great fun when we are together,
even though she is rather poorly at the moment.
I have, for around 12 years, sold my cards and craft makes
for Charities, for people that have dementia.
Lorraine's Mother is now in a Nursing Home, after
being cared for at home by her family, for many years.
Her Mother has Alzheimers and needed special care.
My Mother also had Alzheimers many years ago.
My eldest Sister was diagnosed with it too, over a year ago.
I told Lorraine where I sell my cards in Residential and
Nursing Homes, that are Charities.
She took some cards to where her Mother is living
and was surprised how many she sold.
We are now, along with our own outlets, supplying
another outlet together that we approached
and we were accepted straight away.
So we now have many cards to make for Craft Fairs,
as well as our outlets.
To raise as much money as we can for the Charities.
My Hubby and I did have a short break, 7 days,
spent wandering around The Yorkshire Dales.
We did The Moors last year, so had to do the other side
of the county this year. As last year, the weather was perfect.
Thanks to Marianne, giving us a few areas to visit.
See photos below.
First is not The Dales it's my latest Clay make!!
A swinging Fairy and no moulds for this one.
OOps!! I made her body, hair wings and dress
but forgot to make her any knickers!!!
We went on a Canal Narrow Boat.
We were the only people on it!!
It was on The Leeds and Liverpool Canal .
Just one of over a hundred photos!!
Well that's it!! Hope you weren't too bored!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your lovely comments.
They are all read and appreciated.
I will always return the compliment to you that do so.
There is a new Winter Wonderland Challenge
