it's me again...

Wow what a crazy month it has been... that kind of wonderful crazy that happens at this time of the year.  I like to keep myself busy and boy has it been that!  

The photos below are from the Fruit Bowl Craft Jam at the Hawke's Bay Opera House in Hastings, just last weekend, wow what an amazing weekend.  This all weather venue was the perfect place to hold a market, such a wonderful setting.  It was light and airy and plenty of room for all the lovely stalls and stall holders... some of which were old friends who I hadn't seen in a while, some I work with and saw the day before and some were new friends I had never meet before.

(my stall... looking from the street back into the market)

(a rather messy close up of my table... bookmarks, pendants, prints, diaries and an empty water bottle)

(and the other end of my table... diaries, magnets, calendars, notepads, prints, button magnets and cards)

It was so lovely to meet all the people who came by my table... I really enjoyed meeting you all and appreciate your custom and interest in my work.  I am always so nervous before these kinds of things, not knowing how it will go, what people will think etc... But I always come away with a really good feeling inside.

Wow, I wish I could have been there... looks like a great event! I am really interested in the magnets you were selling... couldn't see any listed on any of your online shops though. I am a kiwi living in the US and would be interested in buying several (they'd make great gifts for my friends and easy to post etc!) If you'd be interested in selling say, 5 or 6 to me, you can contact me at jennyvan19 at gmail dot com. I'm a follower of your blog and have been for quite a while - I love your work!!! Thanks :o)
