So, onto other things : I mentioned that I did my first craft fair a couple of weeks ago. Apart from being very nervous it was great fun! Here's a couple of pics of the stall:
The craft fair was in a local church hall with about 20 stalls with quite a variety. I was initially worried about a very large Phoenix card stall a couple of metres away but turns out the customer base for handmade cards is different and, thanks to some advice from a seasoned crafter, I didn't even attempt to compete on price.
What I learned was the prep takes quite some time!!! Oh the joy of making inserts, finding ( or in some cases making) matching envelopes, cursing about non standard size cello bags and dilemmas on what to charge!!! Nonetheless I don't think it looked too shabby in the end!
For a quiet day ( it rained!!) things sold well; particularly the vases and the larger cards. The other stall holders and the organisers were a lovely, friendly group. I am delighted to be doing a stall at their Autumn fair on October 19th too!
Now onto another bit of news... you may have missed a call out for 2 new Inkoids to join Sheena Douglass's Design Team - The call out is open until June 20th and it is easy to join in.. please have a look, The link will take you straight there.
