The Phone Rang!!








The phone rang and I was sent into a card making frenzy. My sister in law wants me to set up a craft stall at her sons pre- school Christmas fare. The thing is I am not sure if I am up to it, I have a month to make enough cards to sell and then I am not sure if they will. Last night I went out and had a few drinks with some friends and brought along my cards to do some market research. It was a very interesting exercise, the cards that I loved making and thought were my best ones were not the ones that they liked and said that they would buy. The two I have photographed (badly, had to do it this evening as I have been in work all day.) are the ones that they would buy.

It's really difficult trying to work out what people like - I can never tell which cards and scrapbook pages my family will prefer. I think both these cards are lovely, but especially like the top one as it is so unusual - I would part with my money for it!

Good luck. I'm sure you will do well.

I KNOW you will sell your cards, they are both gorgeous. I have sold cards for my childrens pre-school for the last three years. What I have done each time is get a few of the other mums round (usually there is about 6 of us) and design some cards that they can easily follow and recreate. We make about 100+ cards each evening and have sold every one of them each year. If you want any advice then pm me on UKS and I'll send you my email. I have loved doing it and although it's hard work it is really fun. Hope this helps, Caryn
