'Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas....'

Hey bloggers, preparations are in full swing at home for the Lingfield Christmas Fair this Thursday evening and also our christmas craft day on Saturday. So the house is brimming with christmas goodies all throughout the living room and the hallway with Micheal Buble's new christmas album blaring through the house. Absolutely love it! It certainly gets you in the festive spirit. So if you have a free evening this Thursday and live in the Surrey/ Sussex area then pop down to the Lingfield Primary School Christmas Fair between 7pm and 10pm to grab some unique festive pressies and treats. Here are a few more pics of what  to expect from our stall..........

Christmas Hanging bird £2.50

Christmas Angel £10

Christmas Wreaths from £8.50 - £15.00

Besides the preparations for the Christmas fair, our christmas workshop is also this week and the goodie bags are being filled as I type to bring surprises and festive cheer to everyone who is attending. Hopefully I will put some pictures up after the day to show the results of their christmas configuration boxes. We will also be making some at the weekend as well to sell at our last christmas fair at Lingfield Notre Dame. So if you do like what you see then you might want to get yourself to the fair to pick one up to decorate your house at christmas.

Goodie bags for Saturday
Well with a lot more work to do I better get going............

Country Living Christmas Fair

Hey bloggers, today we visited the festive world of the Country Living fair which is held at the Business Design Centre in Islington. It was the first day of the event and I have to say everyone's stand looked amazing. I think I can speak for both of us when I say that we are very happy with our christmas purchases. There were many stands offering beautiful decorations, clothing, jewellery, gifts galore for the whole family. There were also a few treasured stands that were selling some vintage items such as baubles and I also managed to buy a jar full of little vintage decorations including old cake decorations and holly boughs, so quaint! I also found a woolly stocking that I was on the hunt for all day and for £6 I can't complain. All in all it was a fantastic day and if you're free over the next 4 days I would recommend you attend. Little tip - book your tickets online to save a few pounds for your purchases. Have fun!

Making something new from old

Hot off the press! I have only just designed this poster for the Revive charity shop in Crawley to advertise our jewellery workshop coming up at the end of November.
This workshop is perfect for those of you who like to take old things apart to recreate something new and in such economic climates it can not always be feasible to spend out on a new piece of fashion jewellery. Therefore this is the perfect solution! For a bargain price of £5 you can get 2 hours of inspiration from both of us in how to create a stunning piece of jewellery. We will be supplying everyone with a basic chain to get you started, whether that be a necklace or bracelet chain is up to you. All you need to bring is everything you want to recycle, from old bits of jewellery to odd trinkets and charms, bits of ribbon and lace, even old vintage brooches.
Feeling excited! All you need to do to book yourself a place is pop into Revive in Crawley to enquire about the workshop and pop your name on the list. There will only be approx 10 places available so make sure you book in advance.

Hope to see you there!
