Hello World Wide Web of  People

Testing testing, one two testing . . . . . just making sure it works i am not very computer literate, lol!

So . . . busy at the moment with craft shows. Tommorow we are off to do a show in Leigh, have to get up at 5:00 in the morning – hope its not going to be cold.

Lots of our regular customers who buy from MeiFlower at the shows ask me to show them how to make my card samples. So i thought i would start putting them on a blog where it would be easier for me to share my ideas and thoughts with everybody.
