Just a quick post...

So its been over a week since the fair at The Van Dyk Hotel in Chesterfield, the venue was beautiful and the toilets were so posh (everyone commented on the toilets, strange i know) but unfortunately we had very few customers through the door. Fortunately for us the stallholders got peckish so we sold something a least. Very annoying as so many people put a lot of work into there craft and no one came to see them, more annoying for us we spent our weekend baking only to have to give a lot away. On a brighter note we were sat between two fantastic ladies, one who made cards and the other made bags both lovely crafts, we had a giggle and a gossip which got us through the day.

This weekend we are back at our favourite venue
Matlock Farmers Market, lovely people and lots of yummy produce. It is very hard to resist sampling and buying from every stall.

Pay it forward anyone??

So I've joined a PIF over on All About Eden and I'm really excited as I've never done anything like this before and to tell you the truth I'd never heard of it before reading about it on Sara's blog.

For those of you who don't know what it means PIF stands for pay it forward, basically the first 3 people to comment on the blog will receive something handmade from the blog owner, then those 3 people post about it on there own blog then send a handmade gift to the first 3 people that comment on there blog and so on (hope that makes sense). It sounds great and i can't wait to start it, think I'm going to make some cards to send out as it's been ages since i sat and made any.

So if you would like to join in on my PIF please leave a comment.

We had a family christening at the weekend and me and mum decided it would be nice to bake some fairy cakes for the occasion (any excuse to bake and be creative. We were very pleased with the outcome as it's the first time we attempted the middle cake.

What do you think?

I'm organising things for a craft fair that we are standing at on Sunday at Van Dyks Hotel in Chesterfield, really looking forward to it as it's a new venue to us. I'll let you no how it goes and post some pictures next week.

Better get back to it as there's lots to do.
