Summer Fayre prep

Last week I was away in Whinfell forest so I never got much creative work done (well I did some willow weaving in centre parcs which was fun, but you know what I mean). This week I have started to get together items for the summer fayre on Saturday- mainly the 'sketch' side of things- cards, prints, original artwork and aceos. I will look at the 'stitch' side later on in the week but I have owls, cuddle cats and hanging hearts ready to sort through.

This is my twirly card stand getting filled up and ready to go, just need to make a price sign for the top.

I got my second sale on Folksy today which was exciting (though it was to a close friend)- I know that Zebra Pants Owl is away to a good home. I am also thinking about doing my first giveaway/competition soon, I'll come back to the idea after Saturday is over.


  1. I'd love to try willow weaving, sounds like the perfect holiday place for a crafter! Good luck with the summer fayre - I've yet to pluck up the courage to do one - oh and congratulations on your folksy sale, marice ;0)

  2. Congrats on SECOND Folksy sale! May many more follow -

    GOOD LUCK on Saturday - am doing my first OUTSIDE Fair the day after so am hoping for SUN SUN SUN! Fingers Crossed!

    Will look forward to hearing all about it next wk! Pop over if have a mo -

  3. I am doing first sale of this year in a few weeks. Followed by the second the week after. I have to get some more 'display' items. I have my eyes on a couple of bits to help me compact up a bit.
    I did a three day outside sale last year but it was a disaster. . .
    Good luck all.
