Weekly Roundup






001 All this week I have been working on my ideas for the Christmas Fairs I have coming up. I'm really excited about these! I have one coming up in November which is in Sheffield, and the others are back home in North Wales, so that will be really nice as I can go spend time with my family and friends at the same time!! Mostly, I've been making tin candles out of my growing collection of tin cans!!

002 Yesterday I decided to stamp on some unused tags, I wanted to come up with a sentence that pretty much summed me up, or something slightly revealing about myself such as dreams, desires, fears and so on! I have decided to basically include these in bags at the fairs and distribute anywhere and everywhere I can before that!! It has my blog address on it, so hopefully people can find my little piece of the internet !!

003 This week I bought some Marabu Porcelain Pens off ebay! I was sooo excited when they arrived because I had literally been spending ages and ages trying to find something to paint porcelain with, that did not require oven baking! These are absolutely amazing pens! I bought them for £2.99 and they are definitely worth it, all in all I got pink, red and sky blue (but I will definitely be ordering more of these soon!!) I decided to decorate some old jam jars with them to be filled with sweeties or tea lights!!

004 This is the finished product!! I absolutely love this! I got these little espresso cups in a charity shop a while ago (I bought a set of 4 for £2!!) Yes, they were a little bit too plain for my liking, so I decided on a nice little heart design to cheer them up! I really want to make more of these, so please let me know what you think of them!!

I hope you've all had a nice week
Oh, and also...My giveaway is still open until the 16th (which is this Friday!) So please, if you want a chance to win some hand made goodies including tea cup candles, tin candles, hand made felt soap, vouchers and so much more, please enter!
