Life is an adventure of the heart, an adventure into love

The reason I've been so quiet...

I've been very busy over the past few weeks getting ready for my daughter's school fair. I had planned to sell my cards and a few craft bits and of course I got very into the crafty bits and went crazy for a couple of weeks making flower hair clips and Christmas spice birdies. Of course my house looked like a bomb had hit it but otherwise I managed to look after the children and craft and perform basic necessary domestic duties like cooking! I thought I'd share a few photos from the fair here. These pictures were taken by Penny Foxwell who is just about to launch her own website essentially you photography. Her website isn't quite up yet but check back in a few days and it should be online. As you can see from the photos Pen was also selling some handmade bags and things. We had great fun, although we realised through this experience that school fairs aren't the best place to sell crafts. I think I'm going to try a real craft fair next. Has anyone else had any experience with trying to sell crafts and any recommendations? I'd love to know. I may blog about how I made some of these things over the next few weeks so watch this space!
