Craft fair: the aftermath

Craft fair 1OK, so don’t get excited.  The craft fair was a total bust.  I was a bit sad about it because I’d been so excited, but these things happen.

I was very proud of the way my stall looked.  I went into this with my friend Lenka, who bakes beautiful cakes, and we were supposed to be sharing a stall, but when we arrived they’d given us an extra long pair of tables as someone had called in sick. Continue reading

New venture – Baby Brain!

Baby Brain

I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve just opened a shop on Facebook.  It’s initially selling prints of baby names and birth details, and will go onto sell babies’ and children’s clothing shortly.  If you remember the sewing hassle I had with the supergirl boots, worry not, Barry, being the lovely husband he is, is giving me the lovely gift of a sewing machine for my birthday at the end of next month, so no more trying to handcrank the machine and guide at the same time!  I did have a bit more success with the nursery chair reupholstering (with Charlie’s electric machine).

I’ve called it Baby Brain because that’s mostly what I have at the moment, and I’m sure other mums will appreciate the feeling!  I also have my baby on the brain most of the time, and making clothes and prints for her and other babies would make me happy.

So, if you have a spare minute to come and like my page, I’d very much appreciate it.  I’m hoping to run a competition soon for a free print, so watch this space.  Well, not this space here.  This space… www.facebook.com/BabyBrainBoutique.  See you on the other side!

Prints

Prints for the living room wall have now been ordered, all 24 of them!  Got an excellent deal through Quidco for Photobox as well – 30% off + 5% cashback.  Ker-ching!

My brother’s moving house this weekend, so we’re moseying on over to see the new pad.  Don’t know about you, but if we have one thing to do on a weekend at the moment, it means that the rest of the weekend becomes null and void and we don’t want to plan anything else!  Think that means we’re getting old.

It’s also my Nanna and Grandad’s 50th wedding anniversary this weekend, and I’m very excited that I found them some gold dinnerware for a present (don’t worry, they’re not silver surfers!).  I also got a lovely card printed with their wedding photo from Moonpig.  We’re all going out for a meal a week on Saturday with the rest of the family to celebrate.

PS – the new Batman was very good, 4/5, I recommend it!
