I'd love to share something other than QVC sneaks but when you have a two hour show, your life is consumed with demo and samples making. Ive spent approx 12 hours working on my samples but I think the hardest thing is coming up with format and placement. Im sure people think that we just come up with all these cards out of our heads in a moments notice. Yeeeeep! No way, hosay. Half the time Im staring at the products waiting for a spark of inspiration to show them off to their best. Maybe I should keep it simple and mat and layer with a blob of glitter in the corner?
As ever you will see a ton of ribbon. Its my staple basic for a card. I know its not "the law" to have one on there but as a blog commenter yesterday made a bit of a statement about them yesterday, I though she should know that actually I am in love with ribbon and I think it adds a lovely finishing touch. When I die, I want to be bound up in polka dot ribbon in a casket lined with a million photos of my loved ones........ thats how much I love ribbon
Erm, doiley alert!

Im setting off for London this afternoon. I do love using the trains as its so much more faster plus I can sit back and think without nodding off and almost hitting the central reservation; if I used the car. I had another drama last night with my tickets; this time trying to print them from home. Rather than bore you to death with the entire tale, it resulted in a call to Bombay where the handler basically told me that because my Mac wouldn't print their PDF ticket, I had to go and find a cyber cafe or go use a PC. She was assuming I had a PC (we do, but that's not the point...I want to print from my Mac!). Who the hell tells you to go and print a ticket that you already paid for in a cyber cafe (at extra cost to me?). GRRRRRRR. Virgin Trains have really let me down the past two train bookings. Still, Ive sorted it now (thanks to Fabrizio Martelucci - coolest Italian name ever!). The moral of the story is, if you pay for a ticket online with Virgin on a Mac, don't expect their call centres to give you a clue how to redeem your ticket. They told me that I was unable to travel because of this unless I printed my ticket from a PC or if I bought another ticket at a cost of £165 (my ticket only cost £35 return!). What a bunch of criminals. **Could have cried, almost did**
Im thinking Laws of Attraction are out to test me....... must insist on a little more positivity this end. The sooner I go on my Reiki courses, the better.
