Busy times at CG&Cs...

So here I am at last...!!!
As promised, a blog that is long overdue but full of what's been going on in my neck of the woods.


To start with, here's a pic of me at Neath community Hall on the 2nd November. I'm pleased to say I did reasonably well but it's not all about the money. I get such a delight in seeing all the other stalls & chatting to the stall holders. The Neath crowd are such a lovely bunch too & always make me feel at home which is nice cos I don't do this on a regular basis any more.

Here's some of the regular stalls.... 

Arian Craft Fairs

There's another two fairs booked in & one more possible - I'm waiting to hear back from the organiser. I'm glad I stuck to my guns & am just doing winter/Xmas fairs now - my hunch that these would be better has so far, been spot on. Let's hope it lasts....

My calendar looks like this;
  • Saturday, 30th November - Neath Town Hall - Xmas Market.
  • Sunday, 1st December - Cwmaman Institute - 1st Cwmaman Rainbows and Brownies Christmas Gift Fete (TBC)
  • Saturday. 7th December - Neath Community Hall - Xmas craft fair

I've said it before & I'll say it again....
If you're local to any of these events, please call in & support handmade..!!



 Talking of the fairs, I've been catching up on some bunting making - my first batch sold quite quickly so I ran up three more & here they are:
Berries, Snowflake & Santa bunting.



My best seller this season without a doubt is the Baby's 1st Christmas Felt Gift Tags & that's even without me being able to post photos on here or facebook in case they were 'spotted'.
Okay for this set though....
 
Seasonal colours with tree & snowflake button trims
 Of course - some customers have gone with the pink or blue version but I won't be revealing any more til after Christmas so watch this space...  :-)


Harry is a new baby & his mum wanted something Christmassy with his name on it.
We decided colours, fabric & trims & the end result is this....


Harry is, of course the proud owner of one of these too.


I hope I won't be leaving this blog too long but I can't promise... Things look set to get busier rather then not & we are already over halfway through November as it is..!!

Before I go....

Lol...  :-D

 Enjoy you coming week....

Crafty Gifts & WHO....

Sorry folks - I haven't been around much but in my own defence - I'VE BEEN BUSY..!!!
I've had a lot of orders to deal with plus preparation for the upcoming craft fairs so as the saying goes...
Somethings gotta give.......

I hope to be able to get a fuller blog in before Xmas -I've got loads to 'show & tell' including photos of the recent craft fair I attended in Neath. See photos of the day HERE...

See you all soon.
