Craft Fayre xxx

***Beware this post could be long!***

Hi everyone

So everything is almost back to normal, nearly! I guess I'm only so so in the normal sense hee! Not as tired as i was yesterday although voice was almost gone last night seems fine today! The craft fayre went brilliantly only came home with 2 boxes from 30 and some cards and loads of orders hee!

Here is some of the pictures of my wee stand below

Hubby made all my fab display units, including the card stand! Wanted it to look like a picture frame and hubby is so clever hee! I made the wee jewellery "tree" all by myself with hubby's help. He cut the block and I stock it all together. Believe it or not the covers on my table are duvet sheets hee!


Here's some of the boxes close up. and below my wee stand on the corner like a wee step!



The baby boxes were the 1st to the go! Then all the Wedding ones but with it being "Wedding" and "Baby" season its not surprising!! hee

This is my wee "Temping Tree"
OK, so the name came from Big Brother but I think it suited it really well! Everyone loved the sweetie jewels especially the kids!!


And just a wee close up of some of the bits! the strawberries and cupcakes were the most popular! But my fave well apart from the strawberries was the chocolate cake, yum yum hee!
So hopefully I'll get time to get the craft room back to normal,foam back snow every where hee! catch up on here and relax! Never been so exhausted in one week sense like last year hee!
Oh I did end up buying some lovely goodies myself! I got some of the best smelling candles ever and some knitted peas in a pod for only 60p! The best bargain ever, peas for 60p hee!
Okay so gotta catch up with the ironing and maybe mite even change the curtains in the living room ........... well we'll see hee! Take care everyone
Hugs

Congratulations on making the DT Mel and how fun that you had a successful craft fair! All of your boxes are gorgeous - I can see how easily they would be snatched up so quickly! Your sweet jewelry is definitely a taker; wish I lived closer because I'd be one shopping at your table! TFS!

Hi Melly, your stand at the craft fayre looks very impressive. No wonder you sold nearly everything!

Congrats on the new DT too. I haven't joined in at CCC for ages. Haven't been very good at joining in anywhere really. Being on DTs does take up your time....better if I didn't have to work lol!

Oh your craft table looks very eyecatching, not surprised you got loads of customers to buy your goodies (did hubby make your little tree?)
And congrats on making the DT ... you'll soon be working nights now to keep up with them all LOL!

LOVE your boxes, Melly. They're fab. Didn't you go to a lot of trouble for your craft fayre? No wonder you did well - it really does make a big difference. Presentation is so important - something we lacked, due to lack of time. I'm pleased you did well but I'm not surprised... you deserve it.
