Every year I do a trade show at the NEC, Birmingham. I fully realise that there is a year between the shows and I always intend to improve on things for next year, but guess what, Next year is here and I am still not happy about what I am going to do.
So, my stand is only 5 metres by 1 metre. Small! So how come I managed to make it look so empty last year?
This year I have decided to miss out the wall lining in favour of the grey and to fill the stand with more colour. So I wlll take my gridwalls and they will provide me with hanging space and I won't have to pin things to the wall. Yeah!
So, this is it. 2013 show. Not the same as last year at all.
Many of you may now know how excited I am about Craft Fairy selling beads and findings. How could I not be as I love all that sparkle soooo much. I have finally uploaded most of them to the web site and now I can get on with a little craft therapy. So to start I've made this bright necklace using big textured pearls and acrylic beads. As they say here in Wales, 'Lush'.
If you feel inspired too you will need the following:
Orange is not usually a colour that inspires me as it isn't a colour that I can wear. However, the day has arrived when I wish that I could wear it as some beard to die for have arrived at Craft Fairy headquarters and I just had to out them together in this collage of colour.
So, now all that I have to do is use this as inspiration for a little crafting. I can't wait.
We'll you might see from the last and this post that I have at last discovered how to use picsart. So I do hope that I don't bore you all to death with my piccies. These chiffons are lovely though so feel free to share.
We've just had a delivery of the most amazing spotty ribbons and we now carry almost the whole range of these fabulous satin taffeta ribbons. I also decided to play around with collages and this is today's creation.
How many of you have little girls who fall over and make a hole in their tights. Result ruined tights?
Not any more as you can cover up that unsightly hole with a felt heart and very often it will look better than it did before. I saw this fantastic pin on Pinterest and thought that it might inspire you.
At the risk of repeating myself, Hearts are not just for Valentine's Day. You'll think this too when you see these beautiful hearts that I have pinned into my felt board on Pinterest. They are by a really talented lady, whose blog is called Beedeebabee. To be honest with you these hearts are just a snapshot of her talent. She sells on Etsy too and makes fabulous things.
So, I just had to cut out some felt hearts so that you can make something as beautiful as these.
