Craft Fair Weekend

It's craft fair a-go-go for me this weekend!!!! I shall be selling my wares at two separate craft fairs. I love doing them but I always feel like I've completed a marathon afterwards. So if any body is around and about The Lake District this Bank Holiday weekend you may want to come for a nosey!!!
Unfortunately I don't have any adverts to show you- my sister deleted one of them. Also I can't make pretend ones because I've somehow deleted Microsoft Word.

Here is a little info regarding number one craft fair.

Tirril Village Hall
Friday 30th April 7pm-9pm
Entry is £2.00 - free glass of wine and nibbles
A Body Shop pampering thing will going on.
The Fusion Singers will be performing- an A Cappella Harmony Group.

Some info regarding number two craft fair

Saturday 1st May- 12 noon - 2.30pm
This is in aid of their play group. There will be things going on for children. Tea, coffee, cake and of course craft stalls. Oh yeah and my lovely fella selling his fiery chilli oil and tasty chutneys. YUM! YUM!

Dent is an amazing picturesque village not far from The Yorkshire Dales. I find the people here so friendly and I always enjoy doing their craft fairs. It's very popular with families and camping! (Not my family though)

Here's another link

OK! I'm off to make bunting.

Some inspiration, please!

We may have smiles on our faces- but that is for show! What you see here are two middle aged women (that makes us laugh) who need some inspiration! This week we have no colour, it's a sad state of affairs. The artistic flare that we are so proud to own has left us. We crave new ideas. Can any body help get the colour back in our souls?

Please come forward. Speak up now.
You're ideas might be rewarded....oh we could do a "give away". MMMM! Starting to feel better.

EEK! Something went wrong!

Oh! Dear! I can't say that yesterday was a successful day at work. After a much needed, self indulgent, chocolaty Easter break, I thought my batteries would be fully charged, refreshed and revitalised. How wrong could I be! Instead of pressing the"Back to Work" button on my magic wand .........

I accidentally hit "SOLARIZE"! EEK!
Mrs Bellas will you ever forgive me?
You are such a beautiful lady but right now you look like The Wicked Witch from the West . What will your family think? How will you cope in public when people stop and stare? Lets face it no amount of the best cosmetics known to adorable women will fix that blemish! Most importantly- how will you be able to drink tea and eat cake with a bag on your head? I endeavor to take control of this desperate situation.

I'm afraid to say I've ruined our work. Our unit is now a home for lavender filled neon chicks, however I'm kinda loving those big groovy polka dots!

OK! Ground control to Major Tom, is this looking slightly better? We're finally out of the solarize mode. We might be able to get away with this (no-one will notice). I'd better wave my magic wand over the ever gorgeous Mrs. Bellas.......

EH? What do you mean? "You don't feel any better!" To be continued (I think)

Some things don't always go to plan......

....but they can actually turn out better than hoped.

I've just finished these cute lavender bird and heart pillows/bags and I'm chuffed to bits. They've ended up a little bigger than I originally planned therefore I think they should be called pillows and not bags, but I am so, so pleased with the outcome.

I am now inspired to make some more- mainly because the smell oozing out of them is beautiful and sweet. This time I will make small bags to hang up!
