Craft Fair Day At Last
Today saw the arrival of the long awaited for Village Craft Fair which is an annual fixture here. After Mum died in May I decided that I would like to raise some money for the Hospice that she attended weekly during the last year of her life and where she chose to die. I've never done a Craft Fair before so trying to gauge what would be best sellers was rather trial and error, however I made £75.70 so I'm fairly pleased with that.
Before I go any further I would like to thank Michelle Last, Sarah Makin and Bumblebee whose fabulous idea's I shamelessly knicked. As all the proceeds are for a very worthy charity I hope they will forgive me. Thanks also to my lovely friend Eunice, (without her borrowed crafty stash my table would've been bare) and to my aunt, Sam who kindly made the divinely scented Lavender bags, funky button brooches, felt xmas decorations and jam.
As I've been in major crafting mode since August I'm relieved that it's over, but not deterred from doing another next year, hopefully. Now, I have to crack on with my xmas cards as I am WAY behind with them. God knows when I'm ever going to get any time for housework! Bovvered?
Thanks for stopping to look,
