I'm supposed to be cleaning out the inside of the car but it's raining! So, thought I would use my time productively and talk to you guys instead! Far more enjoyable!
As will be the norm from now on, I will start first by thanking you all for your comments on my previous post, Cirlcle of Love Handcrafted Giveaway. I will enter those of you who have 'liked' and 'tweeted' and left a message on my blog- you have remembered to leave a message telling me what you've done haven't you? You need to do that in order for me to enter you into the competition. Don't fret! If this is the first time you have heard of it and haven't done it yet there's still time, just click on the link and you will be able to find out what it is all about. Now, not 4 but 5 lovely prizes to win!
As I expect many of us are this week, I am doing a small craft fair on Bank Holiday Monday, so I thought I would show you a few of the items I have recently made to sell.
Here is a pretty Tea Light holder I made. I think I have made about 8 or 10 of these!
This is something a little different. Wooden bunting with pegs on the reverse to hang notes/pictures/cards etc. My husband cuts out the wooden shape for me and makes a simple peg to glue on the back, I paint them in whatever way I fancy and string them together using cord I have twisted to get matching colours. I have sold a few of these now and they get lots of lovely comments but this is the first time I have packaged them up as I found they were so time consuming to display hung up and kept getting tangled etc.
Here is yet some more bunting, this time it's mini fabric bunting. Each flag is only about 2.5cm.
Here they are all packaged up!
I have a few more bits and pieces stashed away and am having a table next to my SIL Lime Green Lizzie and she has loads and loads of things!!! Our main aim this time is to gather names of people who may be interested in doing workshops with us. We have now found a venue and are just
deciding what workshops we should offer! It's exciting times, so watch this space! Liz is into textiles and me the crochet. Got any ideas on what workshops should be! Should materials be included or should you bring your own according to a materials list? What do you like about a workshop, what do you dislike? Do you prefer all day workshops or half day? Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
I was very lucky this week and received my prize from Butterfly Blossom. She created a very pretty string of bunting for me to use above my stall. I shall take a photo on Monday so you can all see how lovely it was.
Oh and of course Chester will be coming with me too!! And I may even take Taffy!
Why not have a look over on Handmade Monday at what other people have been up to this week. I'm popping over now, see you there!
Happy Bank Holiday!
Bye for now
