New stockist...

I am very pleased to announce I have a new supplier in Leeds! The Bowery, a vibrant cafe/gallery/gift shop/ studio are now stocking and selling a range of my products in their fantastic listtle gift shop, placed in Headingley. It was included in friday's opening exhibition and has taken pride of place in the window display! The range includes cards, badges and plush items, some exclusively made for The Bowery, so only availbale to buy there!

I am also part of a craft stall at the Derbyshire Indietracks music festival this coming weekend, where my lovely and very crafty friend Amy is selling on my behalf. So if you're down there take a look at our stall. It's a shame I couldn't be there! My thanks go to Amy!

I will be at the next Reet Sweet craft extravaganza next Saturday and Sunday the 6th and 7th of August! This give you plenty of chance to see what I've been making!

Recently I have received some lovely compliments via email and telephone from people who are fans of my work. This makes me very happy and to have people like my things so much is really encouraging. Michelle was one of these lovely people and I thought i'd give her a shout out as she also has cute things on her blog! Take a look!

I will leave with a photo of me and my sister's at Craft Candy taken from their gallery:

To infinity and beyond!

Wow, what a lovely weekend!

Craft Candy Summer Fair was a-mazing! What a great venue, lovely people and lots of happy, smiling buyers! This was one of my most successful fairs, with lots of positive feedback and even queues to see my crafts! My sister's both came to help out and after a stupidly early morning wake, the day flowed steadily and we even had some last minute buyers. There were other stunning stalls selling original and innovative crafts too! I was very pleased to be part of such a lovely and busy event held in the heart of Sheffield.

Sadly this was the last Craft Candy Fair.
However, do not despair - the super lovely Becki of Reet Sweet craft events has decided to step in and ensure that Craft Candy do not leave a big craft sized gap in Sheffield! Reet sweet events - mostly held in Leeds Corn exchange are like my second home. They've provided me with a place to regularly display and sell my wares and homely place to hang out on a dreary Sunday! So hearing that they are spreading their wings to over cities, is very welcoming news

If you haven't already, please take a look at the Reet Sweet blog, for updates and information on craft events in Leeds and beyond!

I will be updating this week with news on a new stockist in Leeds who'll have an exclusive range of products by yours truly! Watch this space!

There is a light that never goes out...

I am uber excited to finally be offered a new flat! I have waited patiently for over a year for the right place and now it has finally arrived! I will at long last have a place for all my lovely new and old household items! I will hopefully be in by the end of July!

In other news, I have a fantastic fair coming up in two weeks! It's Craft Candy's Summer Fair in Sheffield Millenium Galleries on Saturday 16th July. This amazing organisation has helped artists and crafts people from Sheffield and the surrounding area to become recognised. My first ever fair was one of their mini events last summer. The atmosphere is great and the venue is lovely, right next door to Sheffield's winter Garden's and just up the road from the train station. Check out the blog to see who will be there alonside me in what promises to be a smashing day out for art and craft lovers!

Here's some images of a few new things. I will be selling some new hair accessories in upcoming fairs as well as my usual treats!
