Measure twice, cut once.

This week I've been putting together a promotional postcard. I decided not to go down the business card route as I like the idea of being able to do some mail shots also. They are good for displaying a selection of images, rather than just a name and address - what do you think?

I'm onto my sheep now, lots to sew and stuff. Once they are finished I will be lining all my bags and doing all the finishing touches.

I also got the screens from Luci for the CL fair, which means I can now finalise my design. I happily chalked out my display stand size on the garage floor some time ago to give me a better idea of the size of the space I have. Rule number 1 - make sure the garage ceiling is higher than the screens - it's not, only 1.9m high and the screens are 2m - so they are a new fixture in my living room. And to think I used to be an architect!

I have also just found out that the Balfron Primary School Christmas Fair has been cancelled. It has been decided that there should be only one school fair a year - so they have opted for summer. This is a real pity as it has been a great event each year with visits to Santa for the children, lots of activities and a good selection of stalls for the parents to do a bit of shopping. I think it will be missed by the community.

Better go and do some work as my flock is calling!

I think that the postcard is a much better idea than a fiddly wee business card. People are much more likely to remember your lovely things if they can see them and postcards also look good pinned up on a notice board ( or on my kitchen pin board). Best of luck with the CL fayre, I'll be there with my sister - jacqui x

Your post card design is really good. Very professional and eye catching. Lovely to see so many of your lovely works on it too. I made myself a flyer instead of a business card as it's more attractive. I might go for a post card size too : )
