THE ad is live so it can only mean one thing...

The holidays are coming....I have just made my final craft fair booking of the season...another  Christmas Crafternoon, this time to be held at St Mary’s Community Partnership
 in Upper Street Islington on 17th December...it should be a fabulous end to the craft fair season.

It has dawned on me that I need to get a wriggle on with my own Xmas shopping. I did manage to pick up a few gifts in the USA in October, but I really wanted to try to buy handmade this year... With this in mind I turned to my fellow crafts people at the Crafts Forum and in particular my friend Anna who does the most wonderful things with Fimo.  I got some really cute things...  a pair of crumpet earrings that look good enough to eat

 a pendant teeny  jar of peace, love and calm

and this amazing steampunk pendant....

so if you are looking for sweet little gifts please do check out the fabulous creations by Anna at Sweet Fimo Heaven ... you won't be sorry.

Clearing the decks

The Christmas Crafternoon on Saturday was lovely -  HUGE Thanks to all involved and to all the lovely customers who came through the doors.

A few more craft fairs coming up  between now and the festive season.

Prelim dates :
Sunday 27 November at The Horatio on Holloway Road
Saturday 3 December at the Wish Em Well charity fair event in Romford
Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th December the Festival event at The Assembly Rooms in Stoke Newington Church Street
Saturday 17 December another Christmas Crafternoon in Islington - details to be confirmed

 I have a busy couple of weeks ahead. This week has been spent on making up orders and I have had a great time making a variety of birthday cards, which come as light relief amid all the Santas, reindeer, snowmen and of course all the glitter that goes with seasonal crafting.

I also recently made a fun card for an 80's themed hen party with a purple colour scheme.

As well as one for the boys with this vintage style 3D birthday card

I am currently working on pre-orders for Christmas cards this week too and there is still time to get an order in for a special card for the special people in your life.....and I do like a challenge so don't be shy if you have an idea you'd like to see on a card you send just let me know.

 This year  I also have a range of treats  and stocking fillers, tree gifts and table favours..not forgetting those festive bags of reindeer poop and snowman poop too...no Christmas will be complete without a bag of Reindeer poop!

On a practical note... Please note that the last long distance posting dates:
Australia and NZ 4th December
 USA & Canada 9th December

after that date there are no guarantees that goods will reach there in time for Christmas.
