I posted a detailed update onto my personal blog yesterday but thought I would just add a bit more information about Charlie Cards today.
For anyone who read yesterday's blog post on What Katy Did Next you will already know that I now sell my cards almost exclusively as part of the Lev3l 3 Community Crafters group in Cramlington. I still have a Facebook business page and have been uploading most of my new cards to that as and when I make them - I am afraid I have been very bad at keeping this blog up to date due to time restrictions. Sadly I also get very little "playtime" these days - and I love nothing more than doing messy crafting. There's nothig quite like having inky fingers!
|The Venue, Manor Walks, Cramlington|
Every Saturday Lev3l 3 Crafters hold a market day in The Venue, Manor Walks, Cramlington - The Venue is situated next to Lloyds Bank and is a shop unit which is used as a community hub. I was a little worried about the location of The Venue as there is a well established card shop right next door and a national card shop virtually opposite so I need to listen to my customers and find out what they want - and then design and make the cards to fit. The one answer I always seem to get is "something different" - some like that the artwork on my cards is different from cards available in the shops and other like cards that are a different shape. They all like that I can personalise my cards. Here are four examples of personalised cards I have made in recent months:
|Made to customer specification for a Ruby Wedding Anniversary|
|Made to Customer specification for a 101st birthday|
|Made for a young man who is into boxing|
|Made to customer specification for a 16th birthday|
Something that has become very popular recently is the "pop up box card" and so I now have a selection of them to choose from - and I sometimes feel I spend my whole life making pop up box cards as they are so popular. Here are just four of them:
|Very popular for the boys!|
|New Baby Girl|
|Flowers and Butterflies|
|For the gardener in your life|
I will try and keep this blog updated more regularly from now on, promise!
Thank you for visiting.
