OMG, time seriously flies doesn't it! I mean, I didn't realise that it had been that long since I last blogged! Then I look back and think about what had happened and I realise that sooo much has in fact happened since then!
After the wedding I embarked on the mad panic of making enough stock for the Victorian Christmas Fayre in Worcester which was a tremendous success and weeks in the making between the mini-moon and the beginning of December. The cold did not put us off the 4 day and night hardcore craft fair and I ended up busy until Christmas with orders from that.
I left my beloved teaching job last summer to pursue my even bigger love of crafting and time was just swept away in the run up to my autumn wedding. I made and created everything (well as much as I could) for the wedding! This took over but was not for the feint hearted and I was so proud and chuffed with the final outcome! I did everything (some with the help of mum, auntie and mum in-law I must add!), including deco-ing my shoes
Then came the new year and a new decision, to move and leave the area, it came quick and we now live in another county, further North and love it but buying a house which was a bit unloved has meant creativity was put on hold to paint, decorate and design our home. We are still not finished but the important bit is, my brand new craft room! A room dedicated to me and creativity you could not imagine all of the stuff we found when unpacking, things I just didn't have the room for or to display in my old house. I have everything from shrink plastic to seed beads and everything in between, not forgetting the 5 crates of yarns!! The question now where to start and how to start, I will be blogging my journey from craft room to craft business and hope you will follow me too.......................................
