Newbury Royal Berkshire Show September 14 2015

The craft tent at the Royal Berkshire Agricultural Shownear Newbury  is one of the largest I attend. It is housed in three vast marquees which are joined together with the best crafts stalls displayed either side. If you love craft, and are not far away, this is a great event and family day out.

I am finishing off the last bits of jewellery, and also starting to think about my Christmas packaging, as alas this is the time people  start to think ahead about presents.

Praying for mild weather as I plan to camp in my tent this weekend. I will add pictures from the show whilst i am there

.

 I have loads of these earrings made up in over twenty different stones , all made using sterling silver wire and findings.They are now on the website.


Summers not yet over! September 11 2015

This Saturday from Midday we will have a stall at the Minchinhampton Village fete near Stroud! I am taking my daughter to help me , as at 13 she needs to pay me back so much ..so she wants me to pay her so she can pay me?? whatever!

The venue will be fabulous and tho its a first time there for me, I will get to see fellow crafters and have a great day even if I am working. Lets keep fingers stared for great weather ...Indian summers here we go!

Getting ready for the Newbury Royal Berkshire show as well the following week, so it had better be warm as I am reluctantly camping in a tent ! Either that or Ill book the Hilton. Extremes! 

So ive just sent out a Mail Campaign via Mail Chimp, its taken me all day to design and send , so let me know if you want to be added to the mailing list via email please, as I dont have fangled techno to do it any other way.

This will make sure that you get updates of my seasonal events and website promotion, new designs and general stuff xx 


Glastonbury Festival Trading June 19 2015

Preparing to do a stall at  Glastonbury Festival is always hard work..so much to remember. Camping behind the stall in our falling apart vintage caravan and remembering to pack enough provisions for a week of rain or shine?

Apprehensive as usual, and getting prepared for a grueling schedule and 14 hour days of standing and selling, not a lot of sleep , ear plugs at hand, and no facilities other than a portaloo and a water carrier. ...mmmm hummmm...and on top of all that packing all the workshop and stock and stall and food and parphinaliah ..how do you spell that!

Heres to a good one! and three weeks of recovery after! Only young once and i think its time to grow up :-) ?
