February Market Stall & Easter Gifts

A fortnight ago we had our first Market stall for the year. The markets we attend are the Western Sydney Community Indoor Markets held at the St. Mary’s Memorial Hall on the corner of Mamre Road & Great Western Highway. The market is held on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 12noon till 4pm.

Seeing how Easter really isn’t too far away I decided to make a lot of Easter Gifts to sell. I still had some of my usual items for sale too and I’d managed to sort out my card stash and put inserts in them all so I now can sell them too.

Here’s some pictures of my setup.

Here’s a closer look at the Easter Gifts I made and had for sale. I’ll have these for sale again next month on March 17th or if you are unable to attend the markets but are interested in any of my items you can email me or phone (H: 02 96209092 or M: 0418218467) to place an order.

Christmas Chocolate Sliders

At some of our market stalls last month I was finding people were looking for teacher’s gifts. I had a few suitable things but most of those sold at the first 2 so I thought adding some Chocolate Sliders to the mix might be good too. However at our last market no one was looking for teacher’s gifts but I did still sell some, so that was okay. I now have heaps ready for our next market this month which is the  WSCIM at St Mary’s Memorial Hall on Sunday 18th from 12noon – 4pm.

I thought the Scentsational Season stamp set would be great for decorating the sliders. I’m really loving this set as it makes finishing off your card or item so quick thanks to having the matching Framelits. Another item I’m loving is the Gumball Green In Color. I do still love Old Olive with Cherry Cobbler but I think the Gumball Green just lifts it so much more and looks great for Christmas.

Here’s some photos of how I finished off the sliders. I made 3 sizes. One to fit the small 100g blocks, one to fit the 200g Cadbury Chocolates (milk, hazelnut, fruit & nut) and also one for the 220g Cadbury Chocolates (Dream, Snack, etc).

First up are the small 100g block size.

These are some of the 200g & 220g block size.

These are really quick and easy to make and a great way to dress up a standard block of chocolate.

Secret Sister – September items.

September was the start of a new catalogue which also meant we’d update our questionnaires with new items on our Wish Lists, our new favourite DSP’s and stamp sets and any other changes. Juliette updated her wish list but didn’t update her dsp and stamp sets so I had to go with my instincts on this months items.

I was a little unorganised in September with school holidays and concentrating on my own orders for new goodies that I forgot to order my items I wanted to send to Juliette until almost mid month so she received all her items at the end of the month.

I sent her gift and 1 card by Express Post and the final card for the month by regular. I hoped they would get there 1 day apart but before the month finished. They did.

Here’s the first card and gifts I sent.

I used the Floral District DSP for this set. The colours in this pattern are Rose Red, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White.

So what are the gifts??

First up is…….

A box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates and some Nescafe Cappuccino Sachets.

What’s in the other little box??

A bottle of each of the Dazzling Details.

That helped Juliette mark 2 items off her wish list.

Unfortunately I forgot to photograph the second card but I’ll see if Juliette can send one to me and I’ll edit the post.

Pop back tomorrow to see the final gift and cards I created and delivered.
