About Me

My photo
I'm Jackie and I live in the North East of England with my husband John and our Border Collie Cassie. I'm originally from Canada but emigrated to the U.K. in 1992. I work full time in I.T. but spend a lot of my spare time making greetings cards which I really enjoy.

A rather exciting day!

First of all, Cassie seems absolutely fine today after her fit yesterday and although the vet wants to alter her medication we are still hopeful about controlling the frequency and getting her liver function back under control as the meds are currently causing the liver to struggle.  She's currently upside down on the floor sound asleep with a tummy full of biscuits so is coping well!

Once again, no new cards today but I've managed to talk my lovely friend Pat Elliott into making me some hand painted laminated book marks to take to my next craft fair on March 26th.  I've just had a sneak preview and they are beautiful.  They will definitely make lovely Mother's Day presents along with a handmade Crafti Cardz Mother's Day card of course!

I've also managed to source some of those lovely trendy scarves with the jewellery in the middle.  A cross between a scarf and a necklace and they will be selling for a very good price.  Again wonderful gifts for Mother's Day.

We've also had a bit of a result with a potential shop and the costs are looking favourable.  I'd love to stock it full of all my friends handmade gifts so if any of you would be interested, let me know!  I'm just trying to see whether we can manage to do this!  I must say the idea is really beginning to take hold.

So I think today would be considered a good day for Crafti Cardz, even if the day job interrupted my creative processes!

Many thanks to my wonderful hubby who's been working on the web-site while looking after Cassie, doing his own day job and trying to get shop details!  He's a star!
