Selling Cards……

I got an email today from my niece, Emma, who reckons I should sell my handmade cards online….. now this seed has been planted my mind was working overtime.  How/where/etc etc…

I have an Etsy account, but It’s not set up to sell things… the downfall there is that you have to list items in $ dollars.

I also opened up a Folksy account, but for some strange reason, I can’t for the life of me uploads any pictures.

My third option is Ebay.. yes I have an account, yes it is in full working order, it’s hooked up to Paypal to accept payments etc etc… great I thought, i’ll go for Ebay, stick one card on it and see what happens…

So there we have it… thanks to Emma, I have now listed a card on Ebay… which card? 

This card 🙂 I made it last week for the Dawn McVey Colour Challenge…

I made this Halloween card this evening…. I had so much fun making it and I absolutely love how it turned out 🙂

Made using the following : –

  • DCWV Rock Stack – used one of the sheets out of this as my base card Black card with silver skull and crossbone design.
  • Various shiney and matt mirror card
  • Karen Foster Resin Happy Halloween Metal Embelishment
  • Ribbon from my stock

This card would be great for giving to a teenager, rock chick, or mosher for halloween…

Sowing Seeds, WWII Homework & 4 Cards later……

I’ve had a busy old evening!

After we had got tea out of the way, I had to give up my laptop to my son to allow him to complete his project/homework on WWII.   He was on a tight schedule because I needed it back as I had an order to make 4 cards.

Whilst he was doing that I took myself out to the greenhouse to plant some more seeds and do a bit of tidying and re-organising.

I managed to get a row of raddish seeds in the 3rd bed.

Sowed more Broad Beans, Peas, Cucumber, & Lettuce.

I still have a fair few seeds to go straight into the raised beds, Carrots & Beetroot

I have no seed potatoes, onion or shallot sets in yet, still have to buy them, i’ve been so busy and so disorganised!.   So I will have a scout around online and see what I can get.

After my planting and sowing, it was back into the house, and my son still hadnt finished his homework.. so my daughter and I stepped in to help him and speed things along a bit… 10 mind later we had finished and printed it all out 🙂

I had 4 cards to made and it was 8pm! .. spent the rest of the evening trying to concentrate making them, with 2 teenagers sitting either side of me “Watching” .. Mitz, our springer lying at my feet, and the other pest of a springer trying to steal cat truffles out of the litter tray grrr….  I eventually got them finished at 11pm…

I will be posting about those over on my card blog tomorrow sometime 🙂
