First Craft fair! Eeeek!

I'm so nervous! I've never done one before. I mean I've talked about it and always wanted too but I kept finding excuses to why I was ready. I'm fantastic at procrastinating. 

Yet here I am! 

I've spent the last week getting all my bits and bobs ready to sell, and working on how I'm going to set my table up. All that is left is to price a few of my last items and I'm ready to roll. 

On my stall today I'll be selling a handful of sock dolls, some pincushions, some felt brooches, some plastic brooches, earrings, necklaces, badges, keychains and pocket mirrors.

I hope I do well! <3

Craft fair creations

Kitty CraftingI've been working really hard since I was invited to do a craft fair. I've spent most of the weekend making little brooches ready to sell on the 30th. This weekend I visited my boyfriend and made use of his awesome table which is backed by a large window and catches most of the days sunlight.

As you can see I wasn't the only person in the room who was making use of the lovely light that flows directly onto the table. Kitty did too.

Here's the brooches I have been making. One their backs are all stitched on I'll be free to move onto another project.

Craft Fairs

On the 30th of this month I'll be doing my very first craft fair! I'm quite nervous as although I've looked into  them a lot online I've never actually done one before. I sort of know what to expect but its still rather daunting despite the fact I'm terribly excited.

I've made a list of all the things I'll need to make my displays and I've already started gathering up my boxes and corkboard to use to show my stuff, but aside from my button badges I haven't really got much ready yet. Lucky I'm on holiday for 2 weeks soon so I can craft up a storm then and hopefully get it all together in time.

New Website

I've decided to change my brand around and change from MuffinPuffART! to Chianne's Whimsical World. In order to market my new brand a bit better I've decided to make this website. I'll miss MuffinPuffART! but as a crafter more than an artist I think it makes sense to swap over, that and my Etsy name is "Chianne" which never really fitted with my older store. It seemed like such a shame to throw away so much positive feedback in favour of swapping for a new account with another name so I'll change my store name to match my old account.  

I really like Weebly. Its easy to use and I think my website looks fairly attractive.
