So now, I have to get back into the strict routine of creating new designs within a very short space of time whilst still allowing one day for packaging too! As each of my decorations has a 3-day creation timeframe, it doesn't leave much leeway for slacking off!!
I had a busy but tiring day at Bromley Market on Saturday - it is wonderful to be on an outdoor stall when the weather is so beautiful! People are smiling and happy and aren't rushing around so much just to get inside to warm up!

(AKA the wind tunnel!)
So, due to time constraints, I have probably come to the end of the brand new patterns for a while as my time will be taken up just replacing sold stock (hopefully!!). I will try to blog about the upcoming fair as it is one of my favourites (Lancing College) but please forgive me if time runs out on me!
But, as this is Handmade Monday (thanks to Wendy at 1st Unique Gifts), here are a couple of newbies for you to keep you going...
|Clown Fish - I want £1 every time I hear|
'Ooh look, its Nemo!' at a fair - I'll be rich!
|Bird of Paradise Flower - I love this flower as it reminds|
me of my many past holidays in the Canary Islands
(oh, those were the days...)
Oh, I nearly forgot to mention my new alarm clock - a kamikaze Blue Tit!! This little guy has been flying (gently. I am happy to say) into my window over and over again. I noticed it for the first time yesterday - it lasted a few hours except for a couple of short breaks - and decided he was (not so subtlely) pointing out that the bird feeders were looking a little sparse so after filling these up again was pleased to see that he had stopped.
However, fast forward to 6am this morning and my new buddy was back, singing his little head off and saying hello over and over and over again! Even the cats were sitting on the floor just looking at him and then at me as if to say 'Huh? Whats that all about?' Fortunately, the little guy doesn't seem to be hurting himself at all and almost seems to be enjoying this new game - now all I need to do is to find the time setting and sleep button to get a little more of a lie in in a morning (pleeeease birdy, just another hour or so!)
See you all later (I'm off to paint, paint, paint til I just can't paint no more.....)
