Craft fair! and Halloween miniatures
Just letting you all know I am still here. Settling nicely into my new home,still some things to un-pack and some furniture to get,but enjoying the new home immensely!
craft fair selling my fimo items!!!! Very exciting, and unexpected. I went into my chip shop and read a flyer for a craft fair in a local village hall on the 21st Aug. I rang the lady and she had space for me,as long as I don't sell my items as jewellery! As they already have 2 jewellery tables. So I am taking bookmarks,keyrings,phone charms and fairy doors! and anything else I can make in time ....lol
I have also been working on a order for Halloween miniatures for a dolls house. A lady contacted me and asked if I could make her some items and I jumped at the chance! I love Halloween, the colours,such a magical night. I find a lot of inspiration for this season, now ask me to think for summer and its not as easy lol. With this in mind I came up with some ideas for her and she chose:
Skull and bones
Stack of old books
and 3 tombstones!
I had a great time making these, making miniatures is something I have wanted to do for a while, dolls houses have always fascinated me. I think if I had one, it would a Halloween house! or a autumn themed house, heck why not a autumn street lol I love making food, pies cakes anything.Pumpkin Pie came to mind...
Thats what I have been up too! I will have lots more posts once the craft fair is over and photos too. It is the first craft fair I have ever done so a little nervous,not knowing how much to take and trying to suit all themes! There are 19 tables in all. We are just hoping someone turns up! If all goes well there will be another one in December, so cross fingers.
Well I am going to carry on putting my Harry potter bookmarks together! A part of the collection I am taking to the fair. Talk soon
