Our First Craft Fair

We had our very first craft fair on the 12th April with the Fairy Tale Fair in Patcham. I was very nervous but everyone was lovely and all the stalls were full of amazing work!

See our stall in the photos below, any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I thought I would share my top two products from other stall holders at the fair. I love this beautiful hand crocheted fox from The Pigeon’s Nest it is a perfect gift and it’s only £16!

Epic Jewellery Fail

I thought I would share my ring setting fail with you. This was my third ring stone setting, I went with a gorgeous pink stone which I pick up from my travels in Sri Lanka.

I spent hours making this ring to fail at the end, it did provide a great life lesson through NEVER HEAT UP THE STONE! I’m sure you all know this but my brain was not thinking at the time! Unfortunately the stone cracked and if now falling apart so my only hope is to find another stone exactly the same size, wish me luck!

I have had a lot of fails while making jewellery but this was so close to the finish line it makes it an epic fail!

See the photos of my silver ring setting journey below:

Baby Shower Cake

I recently made an owl themed baby shower cake and I thought I would share it with you.

The cake was made with two log cakes, a rice crispy cake – for the nest,  Mexican modelling paste to make the cute owls and flowers, topped with a lot of icing to make it look pretty!

Candle Making

I think I have found a new love… Candle making it’s so therapeutic and fun. I paint some plain china espresso cups with ceramic paint. I melted and added the wax to the espresso cups and made cute little candles.
