sweet heart Card

Yup, the next card and pressie time of year is nearly upon us so… I though I should make good use of a valentinie replicake photy by turning it into a card.

It is available to buy at Redbubble.

Some of the matching heartshaped cakes are still available in the wee planetaye Folksy shop.

Here are the latest six goodies planetaye has put onto the wee Folksy shop. Pretty peg faeries all got up in their party wings and lotsa jolly pens to practise the old snail-mail thank-you letters, hope you like…

After a couple of false starts with melting and “exploding” varieties of pen I finally found that the local Pound Shop had the right stuff. So all the back to school displays can be worth having a look through!
And I have to say I am now hooked. Yes, I know every new method or technique that I master (or at the very least enjoy and have a little success with) become my obsession, for a while.
These are my first 9 plain Bic stick pens, finished. Jolly! Now I am off to get some more done in a more organised fashion and hopefully they will be in my online shop(s) soon. 😉

Here is my stall all set up and rarin’ to go. Actually by the time I took the photy I had sold 2 wee bags of mixed badges, a tiny lemon meringue pie and a chick’n’pie!
A fairly good day with a steady stream of visitors as the building is right on a main street.

OK, hit my sale!
Just finished putting my festive decorative danglies into a sale folder on the lil’ folksy shop. They are all down in price by 45%. If you are really organised then start this years festive season off a few months in advance.
Now I can begin this years makes… lots of drawings so far and a one wee celebration cake to make for the end of the month. I sold out of  the tiny seasonal cakes just before xmas – that was a nice feeling.

Hello mini foodies! my latest creation. They seem to be getting smaller, but the photography is a little better I think.

Ready for winter high tea and sitting on a frilled pale blue doily. Full of currants and cherries, a generous layer of golden marzipan iced with a snowdrift of royal icing. I couldn’t resist cutting myself a slice.
Presented on a wooden board, finished with a wee sprig of holly and a few crumbs left for any passing mousie!

So head on over to see the detailed photys and find out more.


Photys by Lynzi at Carpe Diem Photography

My first go at a craft fair in nearly 30 years. … never! …surely not! I hear you cry.  No, really, but way back then I was knitting like a wee demon and sewing little felt toys. Somewhere there are photys of my stalls at the Grassmarket (Edinburgh), so I’ll have to dig them out and scan.

But back to yesterday and Great Budworth Craft and Gift fair. Held in the village church, with ‘tables’ neatly constructed over 3 pew backs and 40 odd stall holders it attracted a non-stop flow of interested visitors. A good day and raised a lot of money for the Great Budworth committee.  So here are some photys of my stall and the goodies thereupon.  Many of these will soon be going onto my wee folksy shop – go on, give the photys a click and see the items in detail.
