IT’S GOING TO BE MAGICAL!!!!!!

The Fairy Tale Fair!

If you haven’t heard about The Fairy Tale Fair by now then where have you been!?… The first one was in the summer and it is back for a festive special on Saturday the 24th November 2012! I am the organiser of the fair, and had great feedback on the last fair. It is a lot of work planning it all but hopefully it will all be worth it and lots of you will turn up on the day! I will also have a stall there selling my usual range as well as some special edition items just for the fair! Read on to find out more about the fair…

The fair is a real community event, which welcomes families and all ages to come along and enjoy the festive creations and treats! All the stall holders are local Brighton or Sussex makers and we hope that you can come along to support them and their wonderful creations. It is also a unique chance to purchase handmade, one off Christmas gifts that you certainly won’t find on the high street! Avoid the stress and hustle and bustle of town and have a great day out with us instead! You can even enjoy tea and festive cake on vintage china while you are there!

The fair will comprise of 30-35 stalls selling a range of handmade crafts. These include jewellery, knitted items, cute characters, cushions, cards, prints, candles, children’s clothes, accessories, vintage style items, hair pieces, bags, decorations, beads and much more. There will also be face painting, beauty, and Alice in Wonderland themed cakes, festive treats with tea and coffee served in the vintage tearoom. Perfect Christmas gifts for all!

Hassocks Craft & Pamper Night

This evening I will have a stall at Hassocks infant school Ladies Pampers Night. There will be crafts, jewellery, beauty, treats and more! Open from 7pm- 10.30pm. Looking forward to being part of the fun!

Belle’s Vintage Wedding Fair

Had a little look around Belle’s vintage wedding fair in Hove today. We mainly went to get some inspiration for our next fair and see the lovely local vintage sellers.

 

There was lots of wonderful bunting, decorations, cakes, jewellery and more!

 

 

Pom poms seem to be a big trend at the moment. We got lots of comments about the ones  at our fair as well. They really do brighten up the room and are a simple, yet pretty addition to any event!

 

Yummy rainbow cake on vintage china from Vintage Events! Yum yum!

3D Seaside Collages

I have been busy working on some small scale 3D collage boxes with a seaside theme.

Each collage features one of my ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’ Brighton designs and features a high quality print which is hand glittered and 3D collaged.

The boxed collages come as a set of three and are a one off. Each design is synonymous with Brighton and would make ideal gifts and would Brighten up any home.

The set is available at The Cake House (37 Cleveland Road, Brighton) as part of the Artists Open Houses festival through weekends in May 2012. See the AOH page for more details. But be quick- once they are gone, they are gone!!
