Goodie, goodie gum gums.

I have had my first batch of goodies for the Makey 'do' goodie bags. I received two batches of business cards and 60 (!) samples. If you'd like to see a picture hop over to the 'do' blog-link in sidebar- and have a look. Thanks so much to Swirly, especially for the extra lovelies that arrived in the box; fruit flakes for the children-which they love!- and all these buttons-for me! Presents for me are not necessary when sending packages for the goodie bags, but they do make my morning particularly lovely!!!
I have agreed to have a table at another craft event on the 1st of May, it's local so I might be able to sign up some more traders for the 'do', or at least publicise it a bit. I am also ready to advertise my brooch making evenings so can print some fliers for that. I am really enjoying making more brooches and developing some new ideas for hair ties and clips but I do wonder if I might not be missing out on projects which are a bit more sustained and develop my skills. I rootled about in my boxes and found this apple casket which needs finishing. I think between making products I might wrangle with this box a bit more and hopefully come up with something really unique, just for the love of it.

I have had some lovely comments on the giveaway post below. I will draw names on Monday morning for the two winners. Can I please make that familiar plea-please make sure I can contact you if you are a winner!
Thanks, x

isn't it compulsory to have half-finished projects littering the place?
