Today is the penultimate day at Craftfest. It has been amazing.
I would firstly like to say a huge thank you to the organisers at Creative Connections for hosting such a fab event. A second massive thank you goes to those who have tirelessly tweeted, pinned, shared and blogged the event quite selflessly. Crafters are such giving people, both of their time, skills and energy. So if you haven't yet, please share the love with all the fab stallholders.
Creative Connections does more than host Craftfest of course, come and have a look at their free online magazine, join in the Monthly Challenge and if you have a spare five minutes why not pop in the chatroom.
My advice though, is to join in the very next craftfest and see what it does for you. Even if you don't have much to sell, you will make hundreds of new connections and learn so much about social marketing alone that you will wonder, as I do, if it wasn't the best £5 ever spent :) Just one statistic, the number of visitors to my blog each day is 5 times the average before Craftfest!
Here are a few more items from this Craftfest, things to make you go awww.
This first one is from Silent Companions who make all sorts of gorgeous teddies. Isn't that a great name for a teddy stall?
The next one, from Pepperpots, reminds me of the little toys my girls Grandma made for them, so it brings back fond memories of when my now twentysomethings were just coming up to school age :)
This tiny needle felted bunny from Blue Shed Crafts has caught my eye right from day one. I could just see this sitting in my craft room, watching the world go by outside my window.
So why not pop along and peruse the shops. If your weather is anything like ours, it certainly isn't a day for venturing outside!
Do any of the items evoke special memories for you? I'd love to hear about it if they do.
I love reading all your comments, so thank you very much for taking the time to leave them,
