Post-fair breather

That was one crazy successful craft fair! The organiser Sue outdid herself, everyone sold like wildfire and the recession was nowhere to be seen. I sold nearly everything, finally gave in and bought one of Alison’s gorgeous door stops plus Louise came over and said hi and Amy introduced herself. I love that even in this tiny speck of a country bloggers still manage to find each other. (Amy, I’m not really that much of a dork, just shy! I swear!)

I was hoping to do an etsy update tomorrow but well…I have almost nothing left to sell! Such a problem, I know. I forsee a couple of very busy weeks ahead! Yesterday I finished everything I planned to make so I tried my hand at making a couple of those Waldorf birthday crowns that are so popular right now. They were very popular and I finally had a use for the Japanese linen tape I bought umm…nearly a year ago. I sense an excuse to buy some more. Darn.

My pretty pretty mobiles looked so great moving in the breeze:

And thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. I had a great day, my family all chipped in for the planned breadmaker, my dad remembered my birthday AND my name. Miracles all round. And Dave’s present was a $50 trip to the craft store:
