I Have Retired

Wednesday last week was my last day of working full time. I have taken early retirement, which means I can indulge myself in more crafts. I recently did a paper cutting workshop, and I loved it and it's so addictive. Do give it a try.
I'm in the process of finishing a project for a craft exhibition in August. As I don't want to give the game away yet, I thought I'd show you a little snowman upcycled from an old pepper pot.

Everything added  was from my stash. 

Hopefully now I will be able to write more often on my blog so hope to see you again soon.

Hope creating

Book Folding - Harry Potter

Did a bit of book folding this week. I have a pattern of Harry Potter which I tried two ways. Can't make my mind up of which of the two I prefer.

I guess we will see which one sells first!

Birthday Cards

I've gone back to making a bundle of birthday cards again. At my last craft event I sold lots so making new stock for my next craft event, which is this Sunday. However, I think I'm out of practise as I realised my style us pretty basic and I need to be more inventive. I think it's because lots of people like the cards to be flat for postage reasons, but I still need to improve my layouts.
See very basic.
I'm starting Christmas cards next week.....eek!

Happy crafting

Dorset Centre for Creative Arts

We had a craft fair run by Wessex Event Co in Poundbury Dorset. New area to me. I had a great day on Saturday, although Sunday was a little quieter due to the weather and we were all allowed to pack up a little earlier. Here are a few photos of my table display.

I sold quite a lot of flowers on Saturday so great excuse to make some more, and I also need to make some more fairy lights. I don't make many cards these days but to my surprise I sold half my stock, so best get those stamps out again!

Have a great week.
