Let me explain in not too much detail.
Yesterday was a right royal hoohaa. Mrs Teawagon and Moi had a 'bit of bovver' with our stall (I may be able to talk about it in more depth in a few months time) and we had an atrocious day of sales to boot.
Reassuringly, I think all the stall holders suffered the same but this is little comfort after a tiring day with little to show for. Anyhows, everything happens for a reason and it has forced me to do a bit of soul searching and make some decisions on the direction in which I may go (hopefully out of this pit of doom).
The reason I chose the 'Keep Calm and Kitty On' sign is that the one thing that I sold well was my Oooh Betty Kitties and I am now thinking that I need to focus more on them and less on trying to come up with new ideas.
This brings me neatly to the first of my 3 reasons to 'kitty on' and she goes by the name Ophelia and apparently she is 'The Boss'.
Last night when I finally sat down, IPad on knee, I did my usual whizz through Facebook, Flickr etc. On arriving at Twitter I found a picture of a little girl called Oophey holding one of my little kitties with the happiest little face (Oophey, not the kitty). Just the tonic after a pants day so thank you Ophelia The Boss. X
My 2nd reason to keep calm and carry on is a lady who came all the way from Rochdale to see Jane and I. This lady thinks that it was nothing to come from Rochdale but to me it means more than miles. I would have never known how much this lady likes and reads my blog and she was also a very good customer as she loves to craft.
The visit from our crafty friend put the smile back on my face so thank you lovely lady from Rochdale. X
Reason number 3 is one of my fave customers but I fear I was in the midst of doom yesterday and didn't make her as welcome at my stall as I should have. I appreciate you and I will be thinking of you whilst you battle on with the Crochet practice.
So thank you Sarah P X
I am entering these 3 great peeps into my 'cheer me up' giveaway whether they like it or not.
The giveaway will be posted later today. I am trying to create a bit of a frenzy by doing a build up....(it is not that I have yet to sort out the giveaway items, honest).
All I know at the moment is that it will definitely involve a kitty!
Thank god for blogging :)
See you later. X
