Hello everyone

It is amazing to be able to say we have had another great week of sunny weather.  I know it has been hot and often uncomfortable, but to be honest it has been missing in recent years so perhaps we should just enjoy it because I somehow doubt it will last much longer.

A fairly busy week making wedding stationery ranges for today's Wedding Fayre at Old Thorns Hotel.  A lovely venue with a great golf course too.  I used to play golf at least twice week up to several years ago and I do miss it, but don't seem to have time to fit in a round these days.  Isn't life supposed to slow down as you get older so that you can do all the things you have promised yourself you will do?

Back to the Wedding Fayre.  This was a really well organised event (thank you PMN Wedding Fayres), that was also well supported by the staff at Old Thorns - they kept us going with much needed tea, coffee and water.  This is a lovely venue for a wedding and it turned out that lots of the couples visiting the event had planned to book or had already booked their wedding at the hotel.  Lovely for all of us it was very busy and although there were two other wedding stationers taking part as they were not strictly handmade, I am hoping this in itself may bring forth some after-event interest.  I have three quotations to prepare, plus an order for the embellishments I use on one design - very unusual, but nice.  I really enjoyed the event and picked up some great ideas for the wedding side of my business.

It was a little dark where I was based, so not all of my photographs came out well, but here are a few of them:

A little late with my Sunday post, and today is apparently going to be very hot, so think it is time to get working before melting time hits.  have a great week everyone and don't forget to visit Handmade Monday to catch up with my fellow crafting bloggers - or is that blogging crafters?
