What a supprise

by Diana
(Milton Keynes)

I went into one of our local craft shops and had a card that I wanted to get some embellishments for.


I took the card out and asked the assistant if she could help. The manger saw it and asked me if I would consider doing some demonstrations in store. Of course I agreed.

I went out of the shop and two customers came after me and asked if I would make cards for them.

I have never sold a single card, but then I have only been crafting for 18 months. WHAT A SURPRISE and I only spent £1.99 in store.

Regards
Diana

Well done you and what a lovely story. I am sure that you will enjoy showing others how to make cards and will go onto to make them for yourself and sell more.

It can be so rewarding teaching others and you will probably get so much satisfaction from the cards that they make as you do from your own ....

Good luck with your new adventure and please add some of your card photos to the Gallery page here on Card Making Magic

WHAT A SURPRISE
by: EDITH

GOOD MORNING DIANA

CONGRATULATIONS! THE CARD MUST HAVE BEEN FINISHED TO A HIGH STANDARD FOR YOU TO BE ASKED TO DEMONSTRATE IN STORE. I AM SURE THAT YOU FEEL QUITE PROUD ABOUT IT. I KNOW I WOULD BE.
MAYBE YOU CAN SEND IT TO C.M.M FOR US ALL TO VIEW

Well done

Well done, Diana, and what a stroke of luck that the manager saw your card. I envy you because I've been making cards for quite a while but have never plucked up enough courage to try and sell any of them which is what I would like to do. Never mind, maybe someday. Keep up the good work and hope it becomes a good business for you.
Take care.
