I am like a woman possessed, I can't stop producing stuff.
Well to be honest with you I have a few things coming up that I have to make items to sell.
Firstly is our Church fete the weekend after next and then the Guild exhibition is in the middle of October.
It is a good thing that these events didn't happen in April/May because they wouldn't have received anything from me.
Anyway I decided to show the girls at our church craft group how I make cards from recycled Christmas and birthday cards.
It is very easy and not expensive which allows the fete people to sell them for a very reasonable price.
We all know that when people go to a fete they want to get bargains so one has to make things that will sell fairly cheap.
I am not a believer that just because things are donated they should be sold for next to nothing.
I feel sorry for people who knit items for sale only to find that they are being sold for less than the wool cost them.
I once made some cakes and slices for a cake stall and the engredients cost me around $40 and I was a bit upset to see that they all sold for around $25.
Next time I just gave them the money--saved me time and electricity and they got more money.
I am now stepping off my soapbox( goodness me how did I get off on that tangent?)
So here are a few of the cards (we made 24 all up)
Next I add an envelope and pop it in a cello bag and it is ready to go.
The ladies had a great time making them too.
