Today’s video shows
how I made my September customer Thank You gifts, which would also make
great stocking fillers, teachers gifts, etc.
fridge magnets were one of the very first 3D projects I ever made when I first started paper crafting – it’s just so easy.

I’ve had positive feedback from customers about this hand made gift they found inside their September happy mail!
not often that I let my customers know what the current month’s hand
made gift is going to be before they receive it, but October 2017 is different!
you’d like to see what it’s going to be, please

had a fabulous time at the Tadworth Craft Fair yesterday!
about it was without fault: the visitors, the stallholders, the
organisors, the location, even the weather.
When I had a look around the
Fair with my visitor’s hat on, I was bowled over by some of the
handmade gifts that were available.
Funnily enough, my favourite was a
company called Peg’ams, who was selling decorated clothes pegs!
regular style of clothes pegs had been painted on the back and front,
some with glitter, and then decorated with beautiful flowers.
also the old fashioned dolly pegs that were painted as dancers, super
heroes, etc. and dressed accordingly.
The lady I was talking to did the
painting, and her seamstress sister made the clothes.
Such was the
attention to detail, that the tutus the ballerina pegs were weaing, were
made exactly the same way real tutus are made.
These dolly pegs were
displayed pegged onto a small Christmas tree.
stall I was really impressed with was someone who made knitted hats,
gloves, tea cosies – yes, people still buy tea cosies!
One of the hats
had a hole in the middle for a pony tail to go through, knitted winter
headbands to keep ears warm, fingerless gloves, etc.
There was a man
selling wooden products he’d made, including a 40-year calendar.

For myself, I sold lots of empty gift boxes, as well as lots of the small gift type products like handbag tissues in a box with a flap lid that had a magnetic closure, several sweet treats, and a selection of greeting cards including a Ruby Wedding Anniversary card.
I really don’t have a clue why I made that, but I’m glad I did – one very happy customer!
Tadworth Craft Fair, without a doubt, is the best Craft Fair I’ve been
to for a very long time.
Big thanks to Michelle McGhie and Angela
Robertshaw for organising such an awesome day! ☺
That’s about it from me today. Happy Sunday and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
