Silly girl

flyer development

I should have kept off the computer today and been resting my arm but I got a bit carried away with this little project in Publisher. It’s one prototype. I shall need to do something bolder as an alternative. Tomorrow I’ll mock something up in PSP.

If it’s too small to read: it is a flyer to promote the Sanday Spinners’ new Introduction to Spinning course. We are selling the island idyll concept (I hope.) A joint effort between the spinners and the island’s accommodation providers, we hope that it will be a successful venture for all concerned.

The Sanday Spinners’ website is coming along nicely too. Should be ready for launch soon. We are attempting to get a shift on with it on Saturday evening. The PayPal account is ready to go but there is a large job to be done in uploading stock, descriptions, and photos.

Oh, and a small matter of getting some spinning done, of course!

And now I am going to switch off and do something less stupid instead.

Bread and butter for one two things, for instance. However, I do have a beef:Continue readingB-B-B-B-B-Bovril

It’s coming…

We are getting ever closer to our new van. It is supposedly 13 days away. I say “supposedly” because we have been here before and I shall not quickly forget the horrors of last year when Mr Snail had to stay near Paris for several nights after travelling up on the train at 6am and… Continue reading It’s coming…

I was confiding that Heidi’s days with us are numbered, we had picked out our new van and that Mr Snail was taking her to Cognac to get a PX price… Things did not go to plan. Heidi was looking gorgeous, considering her age, and we both agreed that the fact that they had asked… Continue reading Well, that was unexpected…
