The Daily (sort of) thoughts of a Candle Maker and a mum of two.

Monday, 30 April 2007

Well had a busy week and this has been the first chance to get onto my blog. I have been busy making up fresh supplies of candles for the upcoming craft events I have - a really busy time.

I was at the Vet School Rodeo on Saturday. It was a really good day but very cold. The sun was splitting the sky but the wind was howling. Had a really great time and was great to meet everyone.

I have been making some rustic candles so as soon as I get some decent pictures I will share them with you. I have also got some lovely new moulds in so when I make them will show them too.

Have a great week all!!

The end to another week

Technorati Profile
It's the end of another week. Getting ready to get the kids bathed and ready for school tomorrow. I really must get off this computer.

Have a great week all.

Cancer Research UK

I was asked to do a talk for the Milngavie and Bearsden branch of Cancer Research UK on Friday. I was absolutely terrified as I have never really spoken in public before. There were around 100 ladies there and they all made me feel very welcome. I had a fantastic time and I raised £50 for Cancer Research UK from the sale of my Little Star of Hope Candles.

Thanks to all for inviting me along, I had a fantastic time and was made to feel very welcome.

My next event is at the Vet School Rodeo at the Vet School in Bearsden. I hope the weather picks up for that event.

Well the local paper did their article on little old me and here it is.

I actually donate to Cancer Research UK and not Marie Curie. The paper will print an amendment in this weeks issue.

Happy Easter

Hope you all had a good Easter Break. Fresh and ready to go - no - well just like me then.

I was at a craft fair at the Falkirk Wheel on Saturday 7th April so thank you to all who attended and said hi. It was a very busy day and the weather was glorious.

I drove home from Falkirk to Glasgow and then straight out again to Dunoon for the weekend to spend some quality time with my parents. It was great getting spoiled again - only thing is no PC so couldn't get my daily fix but at least I am back now.

The story didn't make it in time to get into this weeks local paper so it should be in this Thursday's will let you know.

Happy Easter!!

Well the photographer from the Milngavie and Bearsden Herald came to my house and has taken pictures for the article they have written on my. It will be in this Thursday's paper so a bit nervous to see what it is like!

Had a fantastic night last night, we went to see Lionel Ritchie in concert at the SECC. He was fantastic my feet hurt, my hands hurt and my throat hurt but had a ball. Thoroughly recommend the concert and for all who have booked to go and see him you will love it!!

And another week Begins!!

Well here we are back to Monday again!!

Pretty hectic weekend trying to get candles ready for my craft fair on Sunday.

When we arrived a Mugdock Country Park the room we were in was so dark myself and the other crafters that were in there felt like hobbits in middle earth!! We eventually worked out the lighting system (which needed a NASA scientist for that). Then we astonishingly figured out how to open up the roof blinds so we had light!

Unfortunately it was so quiet it was like the Marie Celest! So we decided to purloin the lecture theatres sound system and there was light and there was sound.

The event was jam packed and we all had a very enjoyable day so to all that turned up hope you enjoyed it!

The only down side was that the local press didn't take the photographs that they were supposed to so will keep you posted on what happens!!

Anyway have an enjoyable Easter week!!!
