Hope you’re all having a great day. I’ve been taking some pictures of my recent handmade cards, feel free to take a look at ’em. If you look down the length of the page you can see just how basic my cards where when I first began cardmaking in 2005. I can’t believe and daren’t disclose how much money I’ve spent on papercraft and cardmaking materials since that time. It’s obscene. The card blog isn’t comprehensive, I’ve made loads more that I haven’t uploaded, but you can get a good idea. I’ve sold some cards at church to raise funds for the Union of Catholic Mothers but I’m also trying to recoup enough money to cover the cost of the materials when possible as they sure don’t come cheap. I never thought of selling them before, but the last few months I donated about 50 cards to the UC M and we sold half of them at our coffee morning!
Sounds like a business advertisement doesn’t it? Sorry about that. Though having said that I have sent my cards around the globe to some of my blogfriends in the past, not for financial gain however.
Anyway, in keeping with the homemdade ‘flavour’ of this post I’ll mention that yesterday was yucky outside and I worked at home on the next issue of the latest magazine…. I had some pretty pleasant aromas to sniff while writing though…when the kids came home from school I served up homemade chicken and chickpea soup…and with freak weather warnings being issued today it sounds like I will be spending a lot more time in the kitchen making lovely soothing homey food like this…
p.s. many thanks for the comments and emails about Wonderboy, he returned to school on Monday, he was unwell at school and bought up loads of yucky stuff (how nice when we’re talking about food eh?)….his attacks are not as frequent now although they can still be nasty when they come on. Thanks and big hugs to all who prayed for him. I’m hoping and praying that he is healing from this month long chest infection that seems to have taken root!
