Another Saturday, another Self Portrait!!!

Well, here I am at the end of a tiring day. I'm not sure what I did to achieve this, but I firstly made it 'antique' (sounds just about right for me) and then played around with the hue etc:

As a few people have commented on the way I cropped the picture, I thought I'd show the original before it was changed. This was it:

so not much cropping really.

Sale in aid of TEAR Fund

I knew that quite a few people for various reasons wouldn't be able to come along today, but I was still disappointed when the response was poor this morning - although, of course, I was very pleased to see those who did come. There were more people this afternoon (making a total of 14 throughout the day) and in the end I sold £180 worth of cards, so I'll be able to send £54 to TEAR Fund plus a donation of £10.

I was glad that I made packs of Christmas cards - selling 5 in a pack for £2, because I sold 21 of these. I also sold 40 indidividual Christmas cards at £1 each and 50 cards made from recycling other cards. Apart from that I sold 45 other greetings cards, costing either £1.50 or £2 each.

I'm really appreciative of those who came and supported this worthy cause.
