my appearance in Your Hampshire Wedding Magazine

Yes, they've recognised me.  I am to appear in the Hot Topics section of the Sept/Oct issue of Your Hampshire Wedding magazine as an 'expert'.

the question raises the issue of dressing a red halter neck dress with appropriate, and possibly asian jewellery.  I suggested that the bulk of the design should rest around the neck, with a simple drop at the front, and maybe one at the back for added interest. 

Let's hope they like what I've said!

Have to laugh

yes you gotta laugh really.  The tiara making class should have had three students.  nope!  one had to go to hospital, and another just didn't arrive.  that left one and me.  She was a lovely lady, but it wasn't as much fun as it should have been really.  Never mind, she was very happy with her tiara, even though she couldn't manipulate the wire properly and it kept snapping!  Don't think I've got any competition there lol

Awesome day at the Hart Centre yesterday

Probably my best sales day so far, I am sooo happy, it's a great feeling to know i've done all by myself too.  well, got this far that is, I am now 'in the black' as opposed to being woefully in the red.

thanks to everyone who bought something no matter how small  :)

so another business opportunity

This time Wedding Magazine has a slot pour moi at a £100 plus VAT.  It's an 8th of a page, so about credit card sized, but it's a national magazine.  The mag will be handed out at both National Wedding Fairs in October, trouble is to even £100 is a lot of money. 

What to do, there is no guarantee I will recoup the money that's the problem.  hooo hum,mmmm

So the Four Season's Hotel

Yep they wanted the earth to advertise with them.  £800, can you believe it.  I know they're a five star hotel, but why on earth did they think a 'one-off' tiny business like me could afford that!

Suffice to say I have put it down to experience and politely said no.  Shame but there we are.

ooh a new business opportunity

A new business opportunity awaits at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dogmersfield near Fleet, Hampshire.  this could be the start of something new and exciting, provided they don't want to charge the earth for an entry into their advertising literature.

what to do?

some things are just wrong wrong wrong!

Yup there is something very wrong indeed about naked people in an aerobics class, laying on their backs and 'cycling'.  

That is one image I really don't want in my head lol
