What’s Happening?

  • Posted on March 9, 2012 at 5:13 PM

Yes, it has been a long time between posts and a lot has been happening – not much craft though! A lot of thinking has been happening and the way Cassis Craft will be moving forward will be changing.

Cassis Craft was meant to be my way of doing what I love while still staying at home to be there for my family. Unfortunately, we have a small house and to run the business the way I would like to can not happen in this space. So…

I will be maintaining a small inventory of paper bead and quilling supplies, sourcing what I can that is a little different. I will focus more on what I would like to make rather than what I think everyone else expects and I will be making kits up of the projects I make. I won’t be trading at large craft fairs and I won’t be trying to stock every piece of quilling paper in the world! I would also like to start writing books. Books on craft and also my other love, food.  I am also running the uniform shop at my daughters’ school as a P&C volunteer and am also looking into returning to casual teaching. Yes, I think that will keep me busy enough!!

So thank you for your patience while I work this out. There will be some bargains happening as I streamline the stock so keep your eye out and subscribe to keep updated so you don’t miss out! You can also Like Cassis Craft on Facebook – click on the link to the left!

Walk for Women

  • Posted on May 26, 2011 at 8:55 AM

I have been rather busy lately. Quite an understatement really!

One of the things I have been doing is training and preparing for a 50km walk. Yes, that’s longer than a marathon! It is all for a very good cause – the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia where they do some incredible work helping the women with these injuries. So on Saturday, 11th June, there will be over 100 women participating, all doing various distances along the route. Another friend and I are doing the full 50km from Coogee to Turramurra. (This is in Sydney, Australia).

You can read about the nutrition preparations I have been working on over at my other blog, Foxy Food.

If you would like to sponsor me in this walk and support the work of theses marvellous people, please do! There are 2 ways.

If you see me in person, I have a sponsor booklet.

If you don’t see me, are overseas or would prefer, you can donate online. For the Event enter “Walk for Women BFox” and follow the prompts. If you are overseas, enter 0000 as your postcode. If you do donate online, please let me know as we don’t get notified of these ones and I would like to say “thank you”. :)
All donations $2 and over in Australia are tax deductible.
Thank you for your support of this great cause.

Reed Gift Fair

  • Posted on February 21, 2011 at 7:37 PM

On Saturday, I went in to Darling Harbour to the trade only Reed Gift Fair. I’d been previously with my Mum for their business but this was the first time I was going as me, a business owner myself.

The day didn’t start well with trains terminating one stop before the one I wanted (of course there was no notification of this by CityRail at my boarding station) so I got the bus from there to the next station then walked as planned. Unfortunately my choice of shoes didn’t work well and I had several blisters before I’d even arrived.

The day improved significantly and my brain was exploding with ideas! It takes up all 7 exhibition halls, PLUS a promenade row PLUS an outdoor (not very well airconditioned) hall.

I’d gone to get display ideas as I will be sharing a stand in the same exhibition centre in June for the Craft and Quilt Fair (very exciting prospect), for the Stanhope Doll, Bear and Craft fair in 2 weeks and also to find some suppliers.

For 6 hours I walked and talked, handed out business cards, looked and thought. At the end I just needed to sit down, enjoy a snack and wait for my little family to come in to collect me (with a different pair of shoes) and to have dinner out. (See my other blog for that story!!)

Now to get busy making stock for the fair :)
