Saturday craft fair

This is going to be a pretty short post. Saturday I was at my local craft fair. My neighboring stall just happened to sell homemade biscuits, toffee and truffles and kept offering me samples… Can’t think of a better way to spend my Saturday morning 😉


I apologize for the bad photos, I took them in a hurry! I was selling a mixture of nappy cakes and Christmas giftsets/stocking fillers. I sold a few things and I’m looking forward to going back again in two weeks. November and the beginning of December are going to be very busy for me in terms of craft fairs, I have four fairs in five weeks =)

Hope everyone had a good weekend!

Belated September round up

September is my first whole month on this blog, so even though its a little late I’ve decided to write a round up! Then tomorrow I’m whole to post my aims for October =)

So in September I opened a Twitter account and came across the fab #craftblogclub! Ran by the lovely Emma from Life is Peachy Craft Blog Club runs every Tuesday 7-8pm. Just use #craftblogclub to join in! September also saw the first ever Craft Blog Club challenge, which was to cover a notebook! Now anyone who has read my blog in the last couple of weeks will know I had a couple of problems with this challenge…

You can read about it here:

So what else have I been up to? Heres the full list including the points above.
 
In September I have:
Not bad for my first proper month =)

I’m going to post my goals for October shortly,

When did you "officially" become a crafter?

This is something that was being discussed on Facebook a while ago. A page I follow (can’t remember which one) posted a status saying that she felt like she was now officially a crafter because she had sliced her finger with a scalpel! 

This got me thinking… Before I started making nappy cakes I made greeting cards and paper crafts. I think the moment I became a “proper card maker” was when I had an accident with my hot glue gun… Well two accidents actually!

First I stuck two of my fingers together with molten glue. To explain how the second accident happened I will have to show you a photo of my desk. Ha it almost looks tidy in this pic!



Look at the wire basket hanging under my desk, my glue gun is on it (the purple thing!) which is fine when it is turned off… You can probably see where this is going…

So back to the story! I glued my fingers together, swore and put my glue gun onto the wire basket while I unstuck my fingers. Problem is when my glue gun is turned on, glue slowly comes out of the nozzle as it melts, without me having to press the trigger. So the glue dripped out of the gun and fell through the square holes in the basket onto my jeans… So I ended up with burnt fingers and ruined jeans! That was the moment that I decided I was a “proper card maker” and a clumsy idiot!

As for the moment I decided I was officially a nappy cake builder? Thats an easy one! It was the day that I realised that I regularly buy nappies, despite the fact I have no children! Haha =)

So I’ve shared mine… When did you “officially” become a crafter?

Bye for now,
