A busy week of crafting

It's been a busy week. There are some weeks when I receive the occasional call and just generally create to make stock for future craft fairs, and then there are weeks like this one! I have been continuing work on my football shirt cards and they are now pretty much finished, making some new baby and kids birthday cards for a local baby store, and now my Dad tells me that he walked into one of the little shops that my Mum used to take my cards to. The owner of the shop remembered Mum well and enquired whether I was still making my handmade cards. A box will be sent there shortly.
The cards that you can see above were taken to a local gift shop this week. The owner already stocks my handmade cards and gift tags, but recently asked me if I could provide her with something "in between". I hope that these simple, yet sweet designs will do the trick!
Continuing my little photographic tour of Israel, last weekend we had a trip away with our synagogue friends to Nitzana, a youth village and communal settlement in the western Negev desert, adjacent to the Egyptian border. On the way we stopped off at Golda Meir Park for a picnic. My photo shows you yet another aspect of Israel, different again from the dry and dusty Dead Sea and blooming Carmel, though this particular park, named after the the fourth prime minister of the State of Israel, is a gorgeous little oasis in the middle of the Negev, a desert region in Southern Israel.
I hope that you are enjoying my little 'snapshots' of Israel. I am enjoying being your guide!

I'm glad to hear that your cards are in many local shops. I may focus on local shops too in addition to my Etsy shop once I settle down in Canada.

I also love your pictures of Israel. Wish I can travel to Israel sooner. It's on my to-travel-list :-)
