The Weekend...

Hello! I'm had a pretty busy week and weekend which is why I'm been so slack lately. I will email the first 10 people who commented on my last post very soon. And I will do the rest of my list this week (hopefully).

The reason I was so busy was because I had a stall selling my mini note cards and some stud earrings at an event called All for Love for an organisation called Joshua Care International. A non-profit organisation helping people in the Philippines through sponsorship, feeding programs etc.

It was a fun night and it was a good experience. I've never sold my note cards in public before and it was a little nerve wracking.

Some pictures from the night of my little stall...


It's not super creative because I kind of ran out of time with putting it all together. And my hair is a bit of a mess because I didn't have much time to get ready for the night. 


A bit of a close up. 


Laura had given me this frame a few years ago for my birthday. She designed the Gracie Bella Butterfly text too. 


A better view of my little stud earrings. 


A closer view of my mini notecards. Those little envelopes on the note cards actually have a tiny little note inside that you can write on. I add some envelope seals too with the note cards too and little envelopes of course.

So, I will hopefully have my Etsy shop up again and I might giveaway some items in my giveaway post (I have been talking about this for so long). I have a ton to catch up on...

♥ A heap of letters
♥ My Spread the Love list
♥ Giveaway post plus email the first 10 commenters from my last post

And a lot more. I've also been battling a cold this past week and it hasn't helped me with my To Do list at all. Plus remember swap packages are to be sent out on the 7th September! If you have any problems just email me :) 

Right, I think that's all for now. I will catch up on all your blogs very soon. I have to finish getting ready for work. Eeep!

Have a wonderful week!

Your stall looks lovely! I would've come and bought some things if I had known. I love the look of everything you were selling! I hope you open up your etsy store again soon, because I will definitely be buying :)

Fight that cold if you can! I've had bronchitis for the past two weeks and my doctor now thinks it may be pneumonia - which unfortunately is going around Brisbane at the moment :/ I recommend horseradish, garlic and marshmallow tablets (Nature's Own brand) and Oliviral Olive Leaf Extract tablets. They're a wonder and are natural too.

Enjoy work!
