Does anyone else out there have a problem with their Craft Machines, Tools and Equipment, being attention seeking. I decided to do something different today, ignoring the copics for most of the day. Well I was happy, but my copics and other craft supplies started yelling at me for attention. Well they will have to wait for today.
I have been doing a lot of Card Sketching. I have never been organised before, being quite new to all this stuff. There for I tended to colour, cut and assemble things to go onto cards with no forthought of colours, trims, shaped, sizes etc.. Today I got all organised and done some planning.
I also had reason to get organised. When I started all this "Cardmaking", it was really only for friends and family. Then I just got bored and wanted to create a bit more challenging crafts. I have a lot of equipment, machines, tools, supplies, the list goes on, and really couldn't find a use for it all, which was disappointing. I then gave a "Thank You" card to the hard working Post Mistress at my little village sub-post office. She liked it and we had a chat and decided to try and sell some. Naturally not everything sells straight away, but I try to keep the selection very diverse so that there is something for everyone. The only problem is that people really don't send many cards these days, but I realised the ones that are sent are the special occasions, such as Birth, Death, Marriage and of course engagement. Anniversary does get a look in now and then as well. So having realised this that is what I am concentrating on at the moment. I have really a head start on my Christmas cards, up to about 18 now, need around 33-35 and although there are still a few birthday cards left this year, I am ahead with those as well.
These are just the start of the above mentioned celebrations I intend to concentrate on next, using all my machines and mediums.
