Baby Bootie Bonanza

Sadly I didn't get round to doing a piece for the last week of Summer of Colour :-( Its a shame because I LOVED the last colour combo, I just couldn't find the time to sit down and do something!  Having a day job that doesn't have a set rota can be quite difficult when I'm trying to knit for my shop and do art for myself (I also try to fit in trips to the gym and visiting friends), some weeks I feel like my time management is amazing, others not so much!

Anywho, I am officially doing 3 craft fairs this autumn/winter!  I am very excited/nervous, mainly because I have no way of knowing if I have enough stock for 3 craft fairs EEK!  In a bid to get a head start I have been making baby booties, lots of different colours and styles.  they are fairly quick to make so I thought I would get them out of the way first :-P

These are the ones I have completed and photographed so far!  They are all £5 (If any one is interested in buying them please do feel free to contact me via my easy shop, Facebook, here or email) and in slightly different sizes.  I need to find a way to price them up that looks attractive for my craft fair.  If you have any ideas please do let me know, I am always looking for inspiration from crafty creative people.  Also if you have any colour suggestions hit me with them....I'm always drawn to super colourful combos and find it hard to know what other people might like :-P

I'm determined DETERMINED to look at every single Summer of Colour post, I'm way behind at the moment but I will catch up with myself at some point!  For now I'm off to work on a top secret project ;-)

Summer of Colour 2015 Green, Green, Pink

Super quick post today, I almost managed to get my Summer of Colour done this week!  I used Derwent Inktense pencils but I haven't had a chance to add the water yet :-P  I thought I would post what I have for now in case I never get round to it!!

Another Zen tangle mandala of sorts!  I'm really getting in to drawing these, I find it so relaxing!  Anyway I have to dash today!  I'm soooo behind with looking at everyone's work but I will get it done!! :-P

My hand warmers are famous (summer of colour and other bits)

Hello everyone!

So sadly I do not have anything to show for this weeks summer of colour :-( I am very very sad about this but I just did not have the time.  It is coming up to stock take in my day job and I have been working extra hours to try and make sure everything is ready!  I am determined to get this weeks done though, I don't want to miss 2 weeks in a row, that would make me extra sad!

So on to the main reason for this post!  For those of you who follow me on here you will know that I took part in my first ever craft fair in March.  I had a great time and sold a few things which was nice.  Anyway at the end of the two days a lovely lady came over to my stall to have a look at my things.  She had her own stall where she sold really amazing head dresses.  We had a bit of a chat and she picked up a pair of my hand warmers that were green with a brown leaf design on them.

These are the gloves she eventually bought!

Fast forward to a couple of Sundays a go and I settle down to watch Amazing Spaces Shed of The Year.  I noticed straight away that the lady who had bought my hand warmers was one of the contestants on the show.  I sat and thought to myself, I wonder if she still has those hand warmers she bought from me.  The show starts and they visit her (actually amazing) shed, the camera pans slowly down.......

OH MY GOSH there are my hand warmers, on the TV!! I have to say I nearly fell off my couch at this point!  I was genuinely quite excited and very happy too.  I have since learnt that the ladies name is Tracy and she is an artist.  Her amazing shed is an Eco shed that looks like an owl, it really is amazing.

So there you go, that is my news for this week :-P  I would also like to say that although I don't usually manage to reply to comments left on my Blog, I do appreciate every single one of them!!  I try to comment on all of the Summer of Colour posts but there are so many it can be difficult but I am there appreciating all of your lovely work :-)
