Hi guys! I realise I haven't actually written a proper catch up post in a while. I've spent the last few weeks crazily preparing for my first craft fair and trying to keep up with Christmas orders. I can't wait until my last order is done and I can breathe and relax, and of course cook!!
Don't forget to check out my Vegan Gift Guide over at Midwest Muse.
Tofu has been settling in well, he's now the king of the house and likes to boss the dogs around. Effy is still being very sweet with him and wants desperately to be his friend. He still hisses at her lots!
Last weekend, it was my first craft fair. I had a stall at the Christmas hand made market in Lancaster where there was a great selection of hand crafters, around 40 stalls all together! It was a great but exhausting day.
I managed to give out about 75 business cards and got lots of interest for custom orders which was fantastic! I loved speaking to people in person about their orders, I ended up meeting some other great crafters too! Unfortunately, all of the Russian Dolls I had spent countless hours painting in preparation for the fair came home. I sold quite a lot of jewellery, so I'm very glad I'd decided to make some last minute rings, earrings and brooches. Next year I think I'll bring just jewellery and Christmas cards, as it wasn't worth all the trouble bringing the Russian Dolls.
Here's some pictures of my stall:
My two besties Wensdimade & Chopstitch shared a stall at the fair too! Here's some pictures of their stall :)
