Still here!

Helllooo lovely little polka dot bloggy space! I kind of forgot you existed! I have had a crazy busy summer but hopefully now we are going to become very well aquainted.

I'll just carry on like I have been writing here most days for weeks, months, years, okay??


So, last weekend I took part in a family fun day. I did one a few weeks ago and it was a great success! I loved it.

This one? Not so much. I refuse to be negative so instead I will say that I believe there were a few resons for the poor interest in our tables, the torrential rain being one of them.

Regardless of the issues, I was super pleased with my wee table :-) I tried lots of new props and display items and was pleased with the results!

(please excuse the phone pics! I forgot to take new batteries for my big camera:-( )

I was especially excited by my new vintage style brooches, corsages and hairclips

And my fabby new hairband display handmade by my Dad :-)

I have also been dipping my tootsies into the pool of "occasion" items! LOTS nore ideas for this , watch this space.

So to sum up - it poured with rain and I  brought home every single thing that I took with me (except my umberella which broke!) .
On the bright side - I am more than ready for my next craft fair on the 16th! yippee !

This brooch is made using a fabric rosette tecnique. It is made using gorgeous pink satin and is embellished with a diamonte and pearl detail.

This item will have some slight fraying for effect and may continue to fray (a tiny bit) as it is worn , for a classic shabby chic look.

I have backed the brooch in some grey felt to compliment the pink and to secure to pin.

The pin measures 1 1/2" (3cm)

This brooch measures approx 2 1/2" X  2" (6.5cm X 5cm)

Price £3.50

Next up are some cup sleeves for takeaway cups.
These are great as they keep your hands from getting too hot while enjoying your drink.

I have one of each of these colours in stock and a couple more that I haven't photographed yet. I can make these in any colour combination.

Price £5

I also have lots of lovely phone cases to share but I think this is possibly enough photos for today! xx

All the fun of the fair.

Geez - where does the time go? I am due a catch up. I have some new products to share and some upcoming plans. I STILL have to share the gorgeous hearts gift exchange and the gift I received from my partner! I  will hopefully post that later on today. I also need to post her gift to her!! Which I will also be doing today. 

In the meantime I wanted to share some pics from a craft fair I took part in this weekend. The fair was organised by Gill and Karen from crafters and makers as part of their Boutique chic events. This was the first time I have taken part in one of their events and I have another in less than 2 weeks time!

It wasn't my best fair for amount of sales as it was pretty quiet, weather wasn't great really and it is still early in the year. I did meet some lovely new people and I got lots of good feedback from the people who stopped by, so all in all I was a happy bunny.

My table looked pretty different to the other makers that were there, but I reckon is nice to have a bit of variety.

Well I guess it is official. Spring has definitely sprung.
 The clocks have shifted forward and the sunshine and flowers are starting to appear!
Good times :-) xx
