Fakenham Fire

Well what a week it has been for Fakenham in North Norfolk UK. We are a small market town in the beautiful North Norfolk conservation area. This week one of our major buildings along with other buildings either side were burnt to the ground in the worst fire fire in 100 years for Fakenham, luckily no body was hurt. The building was occupied by the Factory Shop chain but owned by a local family who also have a business in the town, it has been heart breaking for everyone especially for those who have list their homes above the shops. One the the shops next door was a small independent gift shop/ art supplies shops where I bought alot of my card and essentials, I will miss them so much as they do not plan to set up again in the town. 

I have been busy this week as being half term holidays I have been at home ( I work in a nursery school), I have made a couple of cards and lots of tealight gift boxes ready for a village fair.Thanks to Pootles Papercraft Youtube channel for ideas.
