I'm in a magazine!

Finally, I can share with you something that has been planned for a few months, and I've had to keep it to myself all that time - I've been featured in a magazine!  (Although you probably guessed that from the title of this post!)

I received my copy of Craftseller magazine this morning (I subscribed so I receive it a few days earlier than its available in the shops). 


I ripped open the packaging as fast as I could....and raced to page 84....


I was practically jumping out of my seat at this point - a double page spread all about my week in the run up to my first craft fair!


There are some lovely photos of some of my work -


Oh and some photos of little old me working away on my sewing machine and laptop!


It's been so exciting to see myself and my products featured in the magazine.  This will definitely be something I'll keep forever and will be great to look back on when I'm successful and world famous....(think Cath Kidston!). You can also see how my first craft fair actually went here.

I've also been working hard at getting my Folksy shop filled up again, just in case anyone fancies owning some of my 'makes'.  I'll be filling it up even more over the next few weeks with some other items along with some special Christmas designs I've been working on.  I'll give you a little sneak peek of these soon....

While I was at the craft fair last Saturday I was approached by a lady who asked if I'd like to attend another craft fair this Saturday - of course I said yes! It's a little village craft fair this time, organised by a different group and it's in Letham Village Hall, Letham, Fife, 10am - 3pm.  Hopefully it'll be another successful day and if all goes well they're thinking of holding a Christmas craft event too!  Fingers crossed...
