I did my final craft fair of the year in Leicester on 28th December, it was a very successful day for me, but it was slightly hindered by the immense amount of snow that was dumped on Leicestershire on the 27th of December.
I think the organisers did an amazing job, but we didn't get a lot of loitering because the heating was broken, so all of us poor stall holders were frozen by the time 3.30 rolled round.
The craft fair season has been very successful for me this year and I have decided to have a craft fair break until Easter or early summer.
Hubby and I have bought all of our Christmas gifts and I have wrapped nearly everything. I got myself all wound up about how to wrap all of the gifts this year! I finally settled on gold and silver paper, with red wool and homemade tags - some of the brown tags I bought and some I've made, but all have been stamped with various greetings.
Today's pic shows 2 of our gifts all smartly wrapped - what do you think?
Now that the Christmas craft, cards and present thing is done, I have decided to do a few fun things, I am slowly clearing up the craft room, as it looked a bit like a Christmas bomb had gone off. I've also been through our card book and I have a list of cards I need to make for early 2011 happenings, I am also rooting through my stash and using things I'd forgotten about (more about that tomorrow).
My Ma bought me a nice ringbinder for my birthday, that I have been using for all the pages I tear out of magazines, I keep them for inspiration and tips for new techniques. So I have decided over the Christmas break, I'll be trying out some of the ideas I have been keeping - watch this space.
