me on Monday

another craft fair with my crafting for charity group on Sunday but this one had plenty of customers – we sold everything you see in this photo


plus a lot of other things to make £230 – strangely only £7 different from last year at the same place.

We were at a local faire held in a park with music, lots of cake, places to sit and a fun dog competition so lots of families come and stay for the 3 hours.  Which means lots of people looking at the stalls and it seemed lots of the kids had some pocket money to spend – they were out best customers.

All of the baby guinea pigs that I’d made sold – very satisfying.  The last 2 were bought by one girl who persuaded her Mum that she couldn’t take just one and leave the other by itself – exactly what my sister would say.

Waving to everyone, with an extra big one for Sian who started this lovely weekly wave (the longest Mexican wave ever??) and hoping you all have a good week.

Sounds like a much more successful craft fair. Of course she couldn't leave one on its own. It would have been very lonely. Just as well she had an understanding mum!

That is SO precious that the little girl needed two, a buddy for each. Such a kind heart. That's fantastic that you were able to sell everything and raise a good amount for your charity. Your Minions are adorable.

Aw, I love that! We'd be like that here too. What a hugely satisfying "take". A job well done.

And a Mexican Wave? I love the thought of that..arms going up and down, right across the world. Have a great week Helena

Well done on the fund raising. Love the hamster story - that's how we ended up with several REAL gerbils (mum, we can't leave that one on its own...). What fab creations too.

Congrats! If I remember correctly this is a big turn around from another craft fair.

Well done on both making and selling all your lovely little guinea pigs - clearly they won everyone's hearts!
