Preparation is key

So our first craft fair of the season is upon us this Saturday and we are getting are preparations into gear. We find it really useful to do a mock up at home of how we want the stall to look on the day so we don't waste time fussing about where to put everything. We also have to make tough decisions on what things we will display and others we will keep at the back as different colour options. Vintage is our theme and I think that comes across clearly when you first look at our stall, from cushions to bunting to gift bags.

This craft fair will be at the Charis Centre, West Green, Crawley. So if you are in the area be sure to check it out and give them some support as this is their first ever craft fair so lets hope all goes well. Not only will there be an abundance of craft stalls but there will also be demos on different crafting hobbies. We have been asked to do a demo so I have taken full control and will be giving a demo on how to make a vintage scrapbook using Tim Holtz products. If you have seen any of our posts about the vintage scrapbook we did a few months ago and would love to see how its done then pop along, I would love to see you there!

Making a few changes

Hey bloggers, good news is that my new laptop has arrived and I am now inspired to making this blog better. You may have noticed that I have added a few pictures down the right side, this will hopefully expand to lots of pictures of all the different items that we make and sell. I have also included a list of some of our upcoming events, from craft fairs to craft days so make sure you pencil them in your diary. I hope to make even more improvements to the title bar and keep adding more info about us and our craft projects so watch this space.......

'Oh what a night'

So last Saturday it was my 23rd birthday and I decided to see a show I had been meaning to see for a couple of years, Jersey Boys. I have to say this is probably the best show on the West End and for any fans of the Four Seasons I would definitely recommend you treat yourself to a front row ticket. That isn't to say we were right at the front, more like the front row of the Grand Circle, but still some of the best seats in the house. You will have to resist the urge to dance all night unless you are in one of the back rows or lucky enought to afford a box so you can boogie on down!
Anyway the point of this post is that looking back over the past year of my life I have seen lots of accomplishments, from seeing shows that I have wanted to see to setting up our blog and starting a series of workshops which have now become a huge success and hopefully next year will be bigger and better. My past year at university has been so illuminating and has highlighted skills in me that I wasn't sure I had.
So for the next year I've given myself 23 wishes to make come true, but heck I'm going to take my time, for I want this year to be just as good as the last.
