Another successful Card Buffet

We had another successful card buffet last Saturday, and a few new friends joined us, Betty and Sarah.  I think we had a great card selection, and everyone enjoyed making cards.  I think the flower packet card was the big hit, just about everyone made one.  I really liked that one, too.  In fact, I think I will make up the rest of them for the craft sale coming up next Saturday.  This time I remembered to take a photo of our display, and of Debby.  We forgot that last time.

Next month we are going to have a WOW card class.  We are going to make some special, more complicated cards.  It will require some more instructions, but nothing that would overwhelm the maker.  Sometimes, what looks really complicated is really quite simple, once you figure out how to do it.  And, that's were we come in.  We will do all the figuring out, cutting, and will teach everyone how to assemble them.  I am looking forward to that very much.  I hope everyone else does, too. 
Last Friday, I did a craft sale at Willow Ponds, where we hold our card buffet.  Willow Ponds is a senior cottage community, where my friend Debby lives.  They have a wonderful community room we can use for a nominal fee.  We have enjoyed many days of card making or scrapbooking with friends.  We can prepare our own food in the kitchen, and we have been known to lock up our mess, and come back the next day to craft some more.  There we several crafters and bakers from the community that pulled together a little craft sale for Friday afternoon.  The church next door was having a rummage sale, and we hoped our signs would draw a few customers our way too.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and we got walkers, and bikers, and shoppers stopped by all day.  The bake goods sold fast, and they went home early.  Sale started at noon, and about 2:00 somebody came in and told us the rummage sale did not start until 3:00.  So, not much chance of drawing customers from that sale until later.  somebody should have checked that out!  It was a good day for a trial run of the craft sale set up, and I had time to get a few things organized and ready for next Saturday's sale. 
Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Hope you have a great day!
