Craft Fayre 2011

Hi everyone

As promised here are some photos of the craft fayre that I did on Saturday with my crafting buddy and fellow blogger Shirley.  I was lucky enough to bump into someone I know who takes wonderful photos and asked him if he wouldn't mind taking a few and here they are:-

and here is a photo that I took:-
As you can see we had a jam packed stall !  Anyway we both collected a few pennies each! - and were delighted with our takings.  We still have a lot of bits left and are considering doing another fayre this year.... and I'm thinking of setting up an ETSY or FOLKSY shop!!!!

Nothing quite beats the feeling you get when people buy your handmade creations - Shirley and I had such a fantastic day.

Here is a photo of one of my little gift boxes that I made and sold:-



I could decorate these little boxes all day - I so enjoyed decorating them.  I have a few more that I will be posting over the coming weeks no doubt!

I'm entering my little box into these challenges which I think it qualifies for....

Right off to put the dinner on!

Happy Crafting
