craft fair stall

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.

Yaaarrr!

3 tier mini cake

My latest tryouts for polymer clay designs have resulted in a few more round things. It must be that way my hands work or something… anyway above is a wee tester wedding cake. It is built on a tinfoil armature and has no finished base as yet but was a reasonable first attempt. Less than 2 inches high/diameter so not as tiny as those you see for dolls houses but I was aiming more for the “keepsake of your special day” kinda thing.

Below you can see a trio of (gold)fishy mirrors… not to scale – ha ha! Shown a wee bit bigger than life size here.
Nearly fiinished and ready for the planetaye shop in a day or two – hooray!

All Things Lime…a Folksy Friday

Although I spend a lot of time blundering about webby spaces I very rarely know what’s going on. (“That sounds like you” – the audience) I had no idea what a Folksy Friday was until yesterday …a Thumbthing Thursday?
Well I know now ‘cos one of my little handmade products has been included in a Folksy Friday collection. Many thanks to Anna Hamilton-Gunn.
Nip off to the Lime Garden to have a look – the Folksy Friday lime collection

lime buttons - set of 6But what was featured? ah – my set of tiny swirly buttons –  so if you fancy adding a cocktail punch to your usual LBD click off to the planetaye shop.

Caipirinhas all round I think!

out the oven – works in progress

Here is a wee glimpse of what I get up to, in those moments in betweeen snooping for a real job and looking at The Daily Squee! Buttons, magnets, mirrors and some odd uncatogorised thingies. Polymer clay is my friend (apart from days when it all ends up as a grey lump –  although this is still useful…?) Get thee to the wee shop for some of these and others.

meet my new FOLKSY shop

At last I have taken the plunge and opened a wee Folksy online shop.
You can find me here planetaye.folksy.com.

So far I have 4 items in my shop but this will increase (daily?) as I finish off my recent creative burst! All the polishing and buffing is good for the muscles in one arm!
Magnets, badges and dangly dough hearts – not a bad start. 😉

OK, I know I’ve been quiet for a few weeks. Nothing much happening I suppose but I was away for a few days. You may be able to work out where from the pics below? The bumble bee is probably shown a wee bit smaller than life size, he was impressive.
But now it’s back to the usual daily slippers and dressing gown, getting up at 3 in the afternoon, eating crisps and watching Murder She Wrote everyday… 😉
