A summer summary...



Hi! Well, it’s been a while – sorry about that!  

My last blog post was MARCH!!! So we have a lot of catching up to do!  I haven’t disappeared and I have been working hard – honest!  I just haven’t had the time to sit and write posts (lately due to enjoying the summer weather)  I have managed to keep posting on facebook (see here) as that’s a little more short and sweet!

So, I’ll bring you up to date ........

Back in March TheEve Appeal bracelets were really well received and raised over £100.  They were then featured in the charity newsletter –which resulted in another flurry too!  I’m really touched by the response and thank you to everyone that got involved.


I stood at the Derbyshire Food and Drink Fair for the first time in May.  This was a great event (far too many delicious food distractions though!) It did require me to think about my stall design a little differently as I had a little ’booth’ rather than just table space.  I dream about how amazing my stand could look if only I had a van/lorry – but I don’t, I have a Ford Ka so my plan was to have a background of sheer(ish) fabric or net and this was the result................


I also did a fab jewellery making party for a lovely group of 11 year olds.  I really enjoyed this (think they did too!) I desperately want to get back into teaching and hope to be able to focus on this soon!

June was the marathon 3 day Patchings Festival.  It was my second time at this event (I missed last year as my little girl was still little!) This year the weather was very kind to us and there were some great exhibitors and visitors – I left feeling very inspired and looking forward to next year!



July was the fabuousplaces.co.ukhttp://www.fabulousplaces.co.uk/ Summer Market.  It was as usual amazing (despite being red hot and on the same day was the Men’s Wimbledon final!) Looking forward to the Christmas Market now!


In August I did my last summer fair of the year at Kedleston Hall – again lots of lovely people and a gorgeous setting!

September sees me preparing for Christmas EEK!

Promise to keep you posted!
