Cedars Park and My First Jewellery Party. . .

This week has been a busy one for me. Both at home and with the jewellery making.
My Consultant chirpily told me I have a big baby, showing 28 wks at 25. I was not so chirpy, it's hot, i'm big, my first was a petite little thing though you couldn't tell for looking at him now!
On Thursday I had my first jewellery party I decided t do it at my house so I was a little more relaxed. In the end only 4 of the guests showed up but we all had a fab night, ate lots of nibbles and I even sold a few items of jewellery which was of course the idea.
This bracelet was one of my favourites and i'm pleased to say it hasn't gone too far. My neighbour bought it so i'll get to see it being worn now and again.
Today I went to Cedars Park School Fair. It was a glourious day and there was a wonderful turnout. I was juiced and biscuited by the PTA which was an additional treat as I was only asked for £5 for the table. The atmosphere was amazing, everyone was smiling and having fun.
At the end of the fair I discovered I could fit what I had left into one small box, not including my earring stand. And when I counted my takings I was more than pleasantly suprised. The most success I have ever had at school carnivals and fairs is £32 after the table fee. I more than tripled this today. It has left me feeling a little bit dazed though very pleased.
One happy little girl could be seen sporting my penguin charm bracelet all afternoon.
Another lady came looking for me after seeing a friend of hers wearing a pendant she liked and being sent my way. I had sold it to her about 15mins prior. Following this two ladies could be spotted with similar pendants patrolling their children around the rest of the stalls.
It was actually quite a boost to see a playground full of mums and children wearing my jewellery and getting so much enjoyment from it.
I now have a busy week ahead as following Thursday evenings party I was asked to accompany our local Vie consultant to a hen party next Saturday. I am looking forward to an evening out but will need to make some more pretty things to take with me to bulk out my display again.
I hope all of you are having a good start to the month as well.
