notes from the craft fair

new necklaces

suzy-lee collars

button collars

Today was kraftbomb day, and it went really well.  There was a really positive atmosphere with this craft fair- lots of friendly people, neat crafts and live music which really added to the atmosphere.  I had some new collars to show (they were not very photogenic... I am a terrible photographer, and the ones I really wanted to show you turned out blurry.  Oops.)  I also added some necklaces with a bow shape- an idea to use up left over fabric and to try something new.  I left feeling really positive about the whole craft thing.  Sometimes I think its so nice to be able to participate in something like that.

Another piece of news-news that I've been neglecting to mention is that my collars have recently been listed on Toggle, a website that sells New Zealand craft, which is quite special.  So even if you can't make to the craft fairs they will be online (yay!).

Its a long weekend in New Zealand, which is nice.  It is so relaxing to have an extra day off- I plan to spend it finishing off reading Sense and Sensibilty (Jane Austen of course!) which is surprisingly good.  And I will dip into my Liberty stash and make myself yet another smocky top from my super-easy and useful pattern....  Perhaps I will show you the results in the next post.

the next one!

Wow!  I have been really busy crafting here and there for the next kraftbomb!  This one looks to be exciting with a Halloween theme and much more stalls.  I've been developing some new collars ideas (going nautical!) as well as some necklaces (I love accessorising!) so I'm really looking forward to it.  Its going to be great to see what other vendors have up their sleeves as well!  Catch you there at the Grey Lynn Community Centre (Auckland) 11am-2pm.

Last week I baked some birthday cupcakes to share with my family.  They were ridiculously cute and didn't last long!  Very much a treat and my new favourite thing to bake!
