Can't believe she is 4!

This Sunday Grace (my baby girlie) turned 4 and she decided to have a party with a few of her friends. She asked me very nicely if I would make her a cake and some party bags so how could I say no. I mean its only the busiest time of the year for me and I had a craft fair on the Saturday but she is my little girl and with big eyes I couldn't say no.

She decided only a couple of days before that she loves Tinkerbelle and princess' so thats what we went with. She ended up getting a Tinkerbelle outfit from Daddy and I made the cake as a Princess Ballerina, finished with 10 mins to spare, thats why it doesn't look that great! All the girls (and Noah) seemed to have a lovely time, playing party games and dancing. Well now thats all over I had better catch up with sewing for the next craft fair.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Wow has it really been over a week since my last post, well please accept my apologies I have been a little busy. Childminding, sewing and craft fairs. I was at Grange Park in Northampton on Saturday and it was a very busy 2 hours, I sold well and had lots of personalisations to do on childrens aprons and bags.

Then on Sunday I was lucky enough to get a last minute table at Canons Ashby. It’s a National Trust house about 3 miles from where I live and it is beautiful. I was situated in the Dining Room, and although a little dark was wonderful. I was busy all day and did quite well. I didn’t take many photos as I think you have probably seen them all before and it was dark, I will try to take more another fair and believe me there are more fairs to come!

So what else have I been doing. I have been planning Graces Birthday Party, which is on Sunday, and I don’t know if I’m just a loving Mummy or completely mad as I have told her I will make party bags! Thankfully there aren’t too many coming, about 5 little 4 year old girls, ok so I am mad!!

For those that are interested in my weight loss progress, I have now lost ½ stone (in 10 days), just another ½ to go before 5th December, which is Robs Christmas Party and I would love to fit into my little black number!

Since I last posted with Grace pulling out the name of my lucky follower I sent this to Miss Dollypops, such a lovely lady.

And I would like to say a big Thank You to all my followers and I will be doing another giveaway soon, I will let you know details when I have thought about it a bit more! But don’t forget to follow, comment and especially purchase from one of my shops to be entered into my Christmas Giveaway. The more times you buy the more opportunities you will have to win!

Right better get on as I have a to-do-list that is growing longer by the milli-second!!!

Hatton Christmas Fair

This weekend I had a stall at the Hatton Christmas Fair, its one I've done for a couple of years now and its great fun. I love seeing sellers I haven't seen for 6 months, but the best thing is seeing the customers that come back to buy more from you because they have loved what they bought last time and all the new customers that are buying for loved ones, family and friends (and themselves!) and want something that is handcrafted, unique and beautiful. I got lots of beautiful comments, many of which they wrote in my comments book ready for me to put on my website.

Something for all you doodlers out there!

So this is what I was working on this weekend.

I got into the mood of birdies after making the bird bookmarks and decided to finally make one of the ideas off my list! I do hope you like them. They are A5 lined notebooks which I have made the covers for. The birds are appliqued on and then I have free machine stitched around them and the accents. You can find these 2 in my etsy and Folksy shops. I will be making more birdies and maybe some other things too, thinking maybe cupcakes next, what do you think, any suggestions welcome. Oooo just thought, if you like these and would like them personalised as a special gift for someone (teacher, friend, craft buddy) then I can do that too, now that has got me excited!

Got a Christmas Craft fair on all this weekend at Hatton Country World, so if your stuck for something to do come up and see me and bring the kids for a great day out. There is the farm animals and loads of rides and bits for them to play on. My two really love it and will be up with me at somepoint of the weekend, with their Daddy!
Don't forget to be one of the first 20 to follow me here to be in for a chance to win a little something. Also if you buy something from me before 12th December you will be in for a chance to win a special Christmas Present.

Right better get on with some sewing and shoudl get the washing in off the line before it rains!!!

So yesterday was Hallow'een and Dad came up for lunch. I don't think he was expecting to have to sit down with the rest of us to make the decorations for Hallow'een. We even got him carving the pumpkin!

The kids got dressed up first thing in the morning and didn't change until going to bed. Grace was a very good witch and insisted on having her face painted green with stars to match her outfit.
Noah dressed up as a monster but instead of being scary he looked very cute. We popped round our neighbours for trick or treating but we didn't get any coming round ourselves.

Have managed to do a little bit of sewing this weekend but you will have to wait for those photos as it is now dark and I would like to get a bit more done before unveiling it to you.
