Satisfying Success at the Christmas Fayre!!

 I have been a;tering dominos this week and really enjoying the difference when you only have a small space to work in... a bit like when I was introduced to ATCs or Inchies, Twinchies and so on... Above I covered it with friendly plastic and embedded wire into it. My cleaner has bought this set for her sister's Christmas present, how about that!!!??

 This one used a beautiful little floral stamp and I added the hanzi Chinese characters. I coloured it with promarkers, srtung it on black cord and wrapped my own findings wit copper wire. Really enjoyed doing this one.
This purply one uses a fab freebie stamp from PaperArtsy plus a music section from a different stamp... I coloured the background with sailboat blue and purple alcohol inks and also altered the colour of the bead to match...

So that's what I have been up to as well as selling some of my stuff... well I sold eight pieces yesterday, some key/handbag charms and some earring and necklace sets!!! I was SO chuffed. I was in a funny room with bric-a-brac, kids' toys and a bouncy castle, but lots of people mentioned how pretty the pieces were and I was really happy with my sales... I also met a few really nice people, so it was a very satisfyling success...
Thanks for looking

Glad that the craft fair went well for you. You have a great eye for colour, and I'm not at all surprised that people are buying your beautiful makes.

These really are gorgeous, Frankie. I'm not surprised they are being snapped up quickly. It sounds like your Craft Fair was a great success, unfortunately mine tomorrow has been cancelled due to the weather so I have lots of cards ready for next year!!
Stay Warm
