My mum then told me about a craft fair near where she lived, so I booked up for it and things have just progressed from there. Since the beginning of 2009 I have been trying to do as many craft fairs as I can, the run up until Christmas was mental. Some fairs have been terrible others have been fantastic but I have met some fantastically talented people and made some wonderful friends.
As well as doing the craft fairs I also wanted to start an online shop, folksy was recommended to me by one of my new craft friends. It has been amazing and I'm really proud of my little shop!
It has been nice over Christmas to have the time to list lots of new pieces in my shop.
I'm really excited about this year. I have a regular monthly craft fair slot starting in February. Will be stocked in a shop from March and am looking forward to lots of craft fairs this year. I also hope to continue to build my shop on folksy over the coming year.
It's going to be hard work but I can't wait!!!
