Our craft stall success, with lots of pics! :)

A BIG hello to all my lovely followers!

How are you? Sorry it's been a while, but I've been so busy recently preparing for a wonderful charity event, in aid of Cancer Research.

A lovely lady I know, called Jo, had very kindly decided to hold an event in her home to help raise money for this fantastic cause.

Jo had decided to run a Christmas shopping event from her home (which might I add, is absolutely STUNNING!!)it's an old converted barn, which has been beautifully restored.

Anyway.... whilst dog walking several weeks ago, Jo mentioned about her plans, and casually asked if I knew of anyone who made handmade cards and gifts?
Hmmm I thought, yes I do....ME!!!!!

With that, Jo very kindly decided to let me have a stall, along with a few other lovely crafty pals I know, so they could sell some of their beautiful handmade items too!

So without further ado, we set to work, literally!
We didn't have any "stock" (so to speak) so had to work like the clappers!! Lots of ideas buzzed around, not to mention lots of crafty mess and ooddles of hours preparing!! But we got there in the end, horray!!!

The event was last Thursday, so made it just in time, phew!!!
We had such a lovely time, and pleased to say we helped raise £720 for Cancer Research, horray again!!!

Thank you Jo and well done!! We had a wonderful day and so pleased you did too!
Plus, a big thank you too, to my two partners in crime, my two lovely crafty friends Sarah and Rachael who shared the stall with me, everything you make is scrummy!!

Here are some of the pics taken, along with some cupcakes and snowman soup I made, which were a real hit :)
The cute little snowman lables came from another lovely craft blogger, thank you so much! and the little fabric kittens, were made from a template very kindly shared by another lovely crafty blogger, thank you both!!
I promise to take a few more better pics of the fabric kittens Sandy Leigh (as I have a few left, and plan to make more!:)They are just too cute!!! Thank you so much!!!

Hope you enjoy the pics of our stall and a few of the things we made.

Oh, and BTW, a word of WARNING!!
Don't leave snowman soup where your dog can find it!
Mine did, and had a nice little midnight feast!
Needless to say, that lot got thrown away (what was left!) along with the dog too, well.... nearly, lol!

Here's some of the Snowman Soup (the ones that Barney didn't find and scoff!)

Some Lavender hearts :)

Just a few cupcakes...

And finally..... our stall!!! (which incidentally, is usually Jo's bar in her stable) It's so beautiful and cosy in there!

That's it for now folks, thanks so much for taking a peek at my blog and any comments you care to leave, they are always greatly appreciated.

Big Hugs & more soon!
Happy Crafting....
Suzie xxxx :)

Wow, lady, you have been busy! Your stall looked flippin' FANTASTIC!!! I just went to 2 craft fairs yesterday, and none of the tables looked even close, it's like comparing apples and oranges! Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog, and hope to "see" you around more come December for our trip into DD land, hugs, Roxy.

P.S. not sure if you ever read about my cupcake disaster, but your cupcakes have (almost) inspired me to give it another go - they look INCREDIBLE!!!
