Just received my 1st order off my website, How exciting!!!

Papers and Website!

If you have read my previous post you will know that my lavender bags were been featured in the Daily Mail! Well the feature came out yesterday in the Weekend supplement. I was next to an article on the Domestic Goddess (Nigella).

With the article pending I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a shopping cart for my website and update it with new products. It was very last minute and still is not finished as I do not like some of the images and my sister has to update the stationary department as it has nothing on it!

I have been to look on the web stats this morning, my best day ever, but no orders! What should I have expected? Will people just take a look for the sake of being nosey, or will they look now, order later! WHO KNOWS!!!

Speak soon

The Cake
The view

The room

The happy couple

It was my mum & dad's 40th wedding anniversary yesterday. The arrangements were made back in April, my Dad(banker) was aware of the party, but not my mum. She only found out on Saturday, when my dad drove up to the hotel to stay the night before. She thought it was going to be a small intimate affair!!
The Hotel was the Cavendish in Baslow, on Chatsworth estate. The hotel was very posh and very expensive hence that's why the banker had to be told. The views were stunning, looking over the back of Chatsworth.
My mum & dad thoroughly enjoyed the day, there was all the family, and there close friends. There was my mum's bridesmaid there who she had not seen for 15 years, that bougth a few tears or two to her eyes.
We returned home 7.30, with all the presents, cake, balloons and the wedding photo album, as my mum & dad were flying out Spain on there jollies!

A woman's work is never done!

I have been busy working for the last few hours on some updates for my website, but I got slightly distracted by the new fatface catalogue. It arrived on Monday, I have only just opened it as I was trying to save my bank balance from receiving another battering.
I am trying to take some new photos for my website, but there just not right!
I am off now to collect my daughter from Pre-school, I don't want to forget her now, that would be terrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's 10p listing day on ebay Yeh!

I am having a bit of a sort through as I am desperately lacking space!

This selection of Laundry bags and Peg bags were the 1 st thing to go. As it is 10p listing on ebay I have said bye bye to them (hopefully).

Any body that knows me out there which is Sara @ all about eden, will laugh at this one. It was my daughters 1st afternoon session at Pre-school today (normally she go's in the afternoon). I thought the session finished at 11.45am, but apparently not, as when I arrived she was the only one sitting there. 11.30 is the proper time, must make a mental note or write it down some where.

Pretty things!

I went to Hobbycraft just to look, and surprise surprise I spent some money! but only a mear £4.10, i was so impressed as the spotty ribbons were on sale for 49p for 4 metres.
I also visited International, which luckily for me had a summer sale plus a further 20% off as they were having a 'closing down sale due to refurbishment sale' LUCKY ME!!
I came out with 3 cupcake drawer handles, 1 cupcake coat hook and a cupcake biscuit tin, all for the bargain price of £3.98. What a fantastic trip to Meadowhall - Sheffield.
My little dear went back to Pre- school today, oh how wonderful!! 2 1/2 hours of bliss!!!!!!!!!!

Birthday Girl!

She had a fantastic day! The party started at 10 am and finished at 12.0 clock, she had her face painted, played musical statues and then played all afternoon with her toys. I enjoyed myself thoroughly as I had to do nothing apart from buy a cake!
Anyway not much sewing going on here as I am waiting for the little dear to start back at Pre-school.
thanks for popping by Vx
