...don't worry, I'm not going to burst into festive songs. The weather really is frightful outside! Cold, wet and dark. Bah.
Luckily, I have been busy, busy, busy lately so I almost hadn't noticed!
Last night I took Purple Shmurple to the Pamper and Purchase Evening at Wellfield School, Leyland. There were lots of lovely people there including some of the beautician students who were giving out free manicures amongst other things! Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to go see what they were doing because it was lovely and busy so I was (happilly) stuck behind my stall. I also donated one of my lovely rose rings to the raffle, so hopefully that has gone to a very thankful owner :) Unfortunately the only picture of me behind my stall makes me look fed up! So I will just share some others with you haha...
On the 24th October I also took Purple Shmurple to the first Astley Park Arts and Crafts Fair. It was organised by local crafty mums but I managed to sneak in a place, and I'm glad I did! We were incredibly lucky with the weather, it was cold but dry and sunny which brought lots of people to the park and therefore to us! It looks like we may do another one in the future because it went a little better than we expected so fingers crosses for future events!
I've also just added some great new Vintage Dance Tickets to the Purple Shmurple website:
Right you lot! Now I know not many of you are local (to me, up north) but for those who are - do you have plans this sunday? No? Well you do now! I am going to be at an Arts & Crafts Fair at The Coach House in Astley Park, Chorley from 10am-3pm and you should all be there! Its free to get in and there is even a lovely cafe across the corridor (who do the most yummy cookies!).
We are hoping that if this one is a success we will do more in the future, so if you know anyone at all in and around Lancashire who might be interested then please let them know :)
In other news, the opening of the new Purple Shmurple Website has been great! I've had some sales and even a repeat customer so I am very chuffed that all my hard work is paying off.
Not only that, but for some amazing reason I have gained almost 200 more fans on the Purple Shmurple Facebook page this week AND I won an advert in the Creative Crafting Christmas Issue too! So if that doesn't bring me some good business I don't know what will!
Today I joined Turtle's Tea Army!
I am officially a member of the 10th Biscuit Today Brigade, hurrah! Check out my Regimental badge on the right...
And my first mission? To share my favourite mug with the world! This gave me a chance to try out my Vignette camera app on my new phone too :) ...
(I know, it says coffee on the mug. Drinking tea out of it is just my little form of rebellion :P)
